In his words: Ramesh Richard January 2019 update

Dear praying friends,

HNY is a popular texting abbreviation for a Happy New Year. It is a New Year, certainly, by the Gregorian Calendar, to which all of the world subscribes, though many cultures still have their own calendars running simultaneously, whether Jewish, Chinese or Indian. A New Year is new in the sense of hopes and desires, even a new chance at life itself.

On the very first working day of 2019, 24 of our global staff spanning five time zones in eight countries celebrated much that God did through us last year; anything else would be presumptuous. Echoing Romans 15:18, we lead Gentiles to obey God! Here are a few highlights to share:

  • Twenty-five (of the 300+) leading graduates of the Dallas Global Proclamation Academy (2005-2017) have been inducted as Global Proclamation Associates (GProAssociates). They will serve as alternates, complements and substitutes where and when I can’t go. They are my ministry succession plan.
  • Speaking at the 50th anniversary of a church I helped plant, with its 30 congregations and over 2,000 people, was overwhelming. A thousand memories of slogging to plant a fledgling congregation which would eventually become the central engine of this multi-site endeavor brought me to tears.
  • I was able to lead several “Gentiles to obey God” at a most prestigious dinner made up of about 100 leaders from finance, business and entertainment in a major South Asian city. Over a dozen responded to the invitation and some even rose to applaud—an unknown feature in these circles!

Pray for RREACH to better amplify my proclamation globally and multiply more of His proclaimers locally.

We have much upon us in 2019. I so hope we can see each other face-to-face soon. Thank you for under-girding my proclamation of God’s Word by your goodwill through generosity and prayer. With this new year still young, I wish you God’s great blessings for the year. HNY!

In the Inexhaustible One,

RR
