In his words: Ramesh Richard May update

Dear praying friends,

We know/love/believe/follow a God who is personal, who did not sit in His heavens and merely prescribe (cf. the God of other monotheisms), but who personally entered the crux of the human situation.

It was this crucified (crux is Latin for cross) Savior whom we recognized through 14 stations of the Via Crucis at an evangelical Anglican congregation and through the 15th station, His Resurrection, at an evangelical Lutheran sunrise service. Indeed, this was the only personal message we could send to our Family lost in the Sri Lanka Easter Sunday terrorist devastation. Let me know if you wish to receive a copy of a letter I wrote to a distraught believer there.

Last month was great, for it had no travel, at least not international travel. On my day-visit to Savannah, Georgia, to minister to the 88-year-old, most influential pastor in my life, he ministered to me instead. His son was killed in a bomb attack in Afghanistan earlier this year, and he himself fell, breaking the right side of his face. Still, he assured me that “old age is doable!” 🙂

When I am in Dallas, numerous ministry and mentoring opportunities present themselves. Younger men drop in for guidance and older men say they were decisively influenced in the style and structure of their ministries—including Dr. Celestin Musekura of ALARM and Dr. Stuart Briscoe of Telling the Truth. God uses us in humanly unplanned ways for eternal effect.

Global Proclamation Academies (GProAcademies) in Panama and Indonesia were accomplished by colleagues. I also recorded five pre-evangelistic talks for LifeRocks, our short-format monthly videos, around the theme of “de-cluttering” life, mind, heart and soul through the One who is our Peace-mover and Peace-giver.

And best of all, I concluded a Dallas Seminary semester on Cross Cultural Apologetics and Worldview Evangelism with a fine set of eager students about the ages of my kids!

Please pray for the 28 pastoral leaders from 28 countries we currently anticipate coming to the June Dallas GProAcademy. Hope you can be our guest at their graduation dinner on June 29, or really at any of our open events. You will rejoice at what God through your personal prayer support does to maximize my proclamation globally and multiply their proclamation locally. Thank you as always.

In the Inexhaustible Vine,

RR

P.S. Please keep interceding for rooms for the GProAcademy pastors at Dallas Seminary—we need four more. I would also appreciate prayer as I prepare my graduation dinner talk.

  1. Ramesh: Thanks for your thoughtful email; I am delighted to be praying for those extra rooms for the pastors, the Dallas GPA and that great group of pastors as well as you and anything you ask for. Please keep me in touch. Ed
