Thank you for praying!

In his words: Ramesh Richard July update

Dear praying friends,
What a month it has been—the 2019 Dallas GProAcademy! Just two months ago, we were praying as a staff for 25/50/250/2.5 in 2019—25 pastoral leaders in June, 50 occupied hotel rooms and 250 banquet guests.

God exceeded them all.

God overcame (we could not) the complexities of current global realities and brought 28 pastoral leaders from 28 countries for one of the “sweetest” annual Dallas GPA classes. They were sweet in the spiritual sense of the term, and literally, too. They learned and taught, sang and prayed, ate and played, for a lifetime memory. They also liked ice cream!

Please let us know if you would like a private copy of their amazing, one-page bios. You will be thrilled to learn about them, and pray for them, perhaps, for one a day over the next month. Did you know that we intentionally keep them connected over the following years?

Also, God brought in 51 nights of guests and a waiting list for the 250 seats at the banquet. I am told that God used my graduation charge that night in a fruitful way. While I have not heard the talk yet, please feel free to listen to it here. I hope it charges you to service, too.

Our Albania pastor noted, “I have many materials to share with pastors, but I have never had a method before. You have given me a weapon.” Others spoke about the dignity they experienced and the trust they are able to again give to other pastoral leaders. All of them spoke of the incredible personal hospitality and logistical efficiencies our staff extended to them.

Finally, all pastors have returned to their ministries. Did you know that we have a wonderful record of a 100% return to their homelands? No one has absconded while under God’s care with us.

And the 2.5? It stands for the just under $2.5m we seek to raise in 2019 for RREACH ministry. Thank you very much for helping me proclaim God’s Word, even as RREACH amplifies the proclamation globally and multiplies the proclamation locally. Thank you so very much!

In the Inexhaustible Vine,
RR
