2018 Dallas GPA – Final(s) week

Dear praying friends,

In brief:

  • It’s the final week of Dallas GPA 2018! Pray for everyone.
  • Dr. Richard has a heavy teaching/speaking schedule the rest of this week. Please pray.
  • Pray for the pastors as they travel home and go back to the demands of ministry.
  • Ask the Lord to bring the right connections and personnel needed by the GProCommission team.

The bigger picture:

2018 Dallas GPA delegates prayingPraise God for the experience of the 2018 Dallas GPA! He has blessed over and over again through the three rigorous weeks. The delegates need prayer in these final days of instruction, study and deepening personal connections. They are tired and missing home, but reluctant to say goodbye. Pray for all the staff, too.

Dr. Richard is scheduled to teach two days yet this week, as well as finish and deliver  Saturday’s graduation banquet message on . Please pray for his final moments with the pastors to be sweet and for good quiet time as he prepares for the banquet.

We also ask for prayer cover for the pastors as they travel home over Sunday and Monday. Pray for safety, smooth travels and wonderful reunions with their loved ones. Pray for their adjustment back to the daily life of ministry and discernment in how to apply what they have learned. Pray that they will be able to keep in touch with each other for mutual encouragement.

Praise God for the GProCommission team as they continue the gargantuan work of helping connect, unite and strengthen pastoral trainers around the world. As the 2018 Dallas GPA grads go forth, they will benefit from the GProCommission’s highly personal and intentional follow-up. The GPro team is asking the Lord to bring connections who can introduce them to pastoral trainers not yet part of what we call the “GProCommunity” and for personnel to help in various areas.

Thank you for upholding us, wonderful prayer warriors!

 

 

What is he doing?

Dear praying friends,

What in the world is Ramesh Richard doing? And where? Writing, among other things. We’ve been praying for Dr. Richard to get quality time to develop ideas and write. God has provided a precious pocket of time for this during his current trip to Southeast Asia. Please ask the Lord to bless him with clear direction, creativity and productiveness. Pray that this time will be deeply refreshing in Christ.

Ramesh also anticipates tremendous opportunities for personal proclamation along the way, the Lord willing. Pray for:

  • A private gathering of believers and pre-Christian friends in a place where Gospel exposure is strongly curtailed.
  • Sessions with mission leaders in a land where the Church is growing and, sadly, so is opposition.
  • Comprehensive protection.

In the area of strengthening proclaimers, intercede for:

  • Dallas GPA preparations – Visas remain a critical concern. Two (of two) pastors have been denied so far. Pastor C from Cote d’Ivoire, Pastor I from Macedonia, and Pastor R from St. Kitts and Nevis have appointments in the next 10 days.
  • National GPAs – GPA St. Lucia is set for February 1 – 10. Other upcoming ones include Zambia 2, Laos, El Salvador and Central African Republic. Our goal is the right 25 pastors at each one.
  • GProCommunity – New technology tools and processes are proving invaluable in serving pastoral trainers globally. The teams are working hard on set-up and learning. They also seek more colleagues, especially in Southeast Asia.

Finally, please continue to pray for good fruit from our Media Outreach messages on Peace. If you have friends wrestling with life and the idea of God, suggest LifeRocks.org. We pray they’ll find what they are looking for!
