Preaching lectures, GProCongress registration, GPA Lesotho

Dear praying friends,

This week Dr. Richard’s schedule includes preaching lectures at Heritage College and Seminary in the Toronto and Ottawa areas, as well as GProCongress vision-casting. Pray for the Lord to speak clearly through him, and for several possible individual contact opportunities in the area to mature. Next week, the Lord willing, the Congress Core team will convene in Dallas for several days of meetings. These are their final meetings for the year and much needs to be accomplished. Please begin praying now for their travel and time together.

Many Congress applicants are requesting prayer that they will be able to raise the money needed for registration fees and airfare to the Congress. Let’s ask the Lord to provide for them in special ways, as we do for delegates to the Dallas GPA. Ask Him to provide for RREACH, too, as we seek to cover all other Congress-related costs for these pastoral trainers. Pray also for our communication with those who have been accepted but need to finish the registration process.

GPA Lesotho delegates

Finally, praise God for a good start to GPA Lesotho! Pray for the 25 delegates’ connecting, uniting and strengthening throughout the week; graduation is scheduled for Oct. 3.

On the road…again, national GPAs and GProCongress team needs

Dear praying friends,

Thank you for praying Dr. Richard through a short GProCongress mobilization visit to Orlando. As this is being written, he is in the air on his way to Myanmar and then Bangkok for more Congress mobilization and program planning. The Lord willing, he is to come back via Canada to lecture on preaching in two different cities as well as do additional Congress vision-casting. Please remember the whole Richard family during this higher-pressure time. Pray that they will walk closely with the Lord Jesus Christ, find strength and rest in Him, and that He will be honored in and through their lives.

GPA Lesotho is just beginning. Pray for special connecting, uniting and strengthening there. We are planning on a few more national GPAs coming up this year, the Lord willing, in Trinidad and Tobago, Thailand and Panama. Pray for a full complement of delegates at each and protection and provision for the organizers and teachers.

God has blessed the GProCongress with a wonderful Core team and set of advisers. Ask Him to direct and empower them in helping strengthen pastoral trainers, who have never come together on a global level, through the GProCongress. Thank you!
