Making strategic international connections for the GProCongress and continuing Dallas GPA prep

Dear praying friends,

Early (very early) this morning Dr. Richard flew out of Dallas for a World Evangelical Alliance international leaders forum in Central America. Please pray that the Lord will generate enthusiasm and good connections as he meets with strategic Kingdom servants and presents the GProCongress. Please also request continued good health and travel mercies.

Thank you for praying as Dr. Richard spoke at Moody Bible Institute’s Founder’s Week in Chicago last Friday. He said he felt great freedom. Many commented on how God spoke to them through him. Praise God that he and Bonnie got to spend some wonderful time with their grandchildren Joshua and Emma over the last week, also.


Dr. Richard speaking on “Who is Running the Race With You?”

As you faithfully lift up the 2015 Dallas GPA, please specifically remember:

  • the extensive and multi-faceted preparation needed to warmly host 25 pastors from 25 different countries for three weeks
  • each pastor preparing to attend
  • visa appointments – one pastor is going for his appointment tomorrow and two are scheduled for next week; two others have been denied visas this week, but we are encouraging all who have been denied to reapply.

Dr. Richard at Moody Bible Institute Founder’s Week and more 2015 Dallas GPA News

Dear praying friends,

Despite being from, as he says, a “sun-people,” Dr. Richard is in wintry Chicago to speak at Moody Founder’s Week and be interviewed live on Moody Radio today. To watch Dr. Richard’s session click here and to hear him on Moody Radio click here. Please pray that his talk and the interview will be encouraging, challenging, and above all, promote the Lord Jesus Christ.

Nine of the 26 2015 Dallas GPA candidates now have their visas, but we have also learned that a second pastor, who went early this week, was denied. Continue to intercede for the candidates as they go through this process. Two more visa appointments are scheduled for next week.

Thank you for remembering Dr. Richard’s family, the RREACH Board, the RREACH staff and the GProCongress team, too.
