Dear praying friends,
- Pray for production of Dr. Richard’s new short evangelistic videos.
- Praise God for sustaining Dr. Richard through some demanding weeks of speaking, filming and considering RREACH’s future.
- National Global Proclamation Academy (GPA) action is high: pray for GPAs in Republic of Congo (in process), Ecuador (starting today), and Central African Republic (to begin in a week).
- Please lift up pastors and pastoral trainers serving in areas of natural or man-made turbulence.
The bigger picture:
Last week Dr. Richard had two recording sessions, one for LifeRocks evangelistic talks and one for PASTORREACH, an upcoming project addressing questions sent in by pastoral leaders. Praise God for the time he had to prepare for these and for the sessions running well. Pray for good production of the videos and that new elements of LifeRocks will increase people’s exposure to the Lord Jesus, especially in otherwise unreachable socio-economic tiers and geographical areas.
Also praise God for the direction prepared as RREACH board members recently discussed ministry succession. Please pray that this will enable Dr. Richard and RREACH, as the Lord Jesus charged His followers, to “go and bear” more, better and lasting fruit (John 15:16).
Twenty-five young pastors gathered last week for GPA Republic of [perennially troubled] Congo. The Lord willing, they will graduate late this week.
GPA Ecuador is kicking off today and GPA Central African Republic next Thursday. Other national GPAs planned for this fall include Hungary, an undisclosed Asian country, Chile, The Gambia, Guyana, Bolivia and the Solomon Islands. Intercede for attendees to learn and connect well and for God’s protection over all involved; the spiritual warfare can be intense.
Please remember all pastors and pastoral trainers around the world who serve in difficult—even humanly impossible—circumstances. Ask the Lord Jesus to favor them with joy, courage, strength and a sense of His powerful and shielding presence.
Thank you for praying!
