Major outreach opportunities

Dear praying friends,

In brief:

  • Dr. Ramesh Richard is on his way to minister in an influential country experiencing increasing hostility towards believers/followers. Please pray.
  • Praise! GPA Bolivia, the final national Global Proclamation Academy of 2018, successfully graduated 33 younger pastoral leaders. Please pray for 2019.
  • Plans are under way for a strategic event early next year. Pray for creativity, capacity and Christ-likeness in the process.

The bigger picture:

PES1 books in Spanish donated in Bolivia

Two Spanish editions of Dr. Richard’s book Preparing Expository Sermons were given to a GPA Bolivia coordinator for use in a seminary there. They hope to incorporate Dr. Richard’s seven-step process for preparing expository sermons into their courses.

Dr. Richard is embarking on a trip with major outreach opportunities, but new spiritual realities in his destination country require us to call on the Lord for protection and impact. Please pray for his entry into the country, for all the local hosts, and for full events. Intercede for God’s Word to reach into many and transform the many. Pray also for his engagement to speak at the 50th anniversary of a congregation he planted, which has become a central strategic influence in one of the world’s largest cities.

The final national GPA of 2018 wrapped up in Bolivia with 33 young pastoral graduates. Ask God to continue to work in the lives and ministries of each national GPA graduate—380 in 2018, 1,928 since 2011! Pray, too, for the national GPAs being organized for 2019. Pray for local organizers, logistical details and for the right 25 young pastors to attend each. Please also remember ongoing preparation for the 2019 Dallas GPA. Nineteen pastors have been accepted so far.

Finally (for this week), we would appreciate prayer for a special early-2019 event celebrating God’s work through RREACH and looking ahead to the next phase of Dr. Richard’s proclamation ministry. Pray for creativity, capacity and Christ-likeness as we organize this and for good response from 50 like-minded and long-term generous friends.

Thank you for praying!

  1. Beloved, We have no comment than praying for each of the opportunities mentioned. However, we have two questions: 1. Have the two last books on preaching by Dr Ramesh Richard already been translated in FRENCH? I know we worked on the first book “Scripture scupture” in 1993 in Chad with a broken translation, and the work need to be redone, so our question is to know whether the two books have already been translated in Frenc. If there is already a plan to get it done so, then we would like to know what that plan is: 2. Have you received the information on the Missionaries American couple, Bangkok alumni who passed away in a car accident in Congo (DRC?). We forwarded it to you when we were in Dallas. Sem & Eunice
