Intense GProCongress preparation; Inspirational Challenge deadline today!

Dear praying friends,

Thank you for praying in the power of the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ! We hope your Easter celebration of our Savior was sweet.

The GProCongress team is facing many challenges as they prepare for eight highly intentional, carefully scheduled days in June. Pray for wisdom, precision and sensitivity to the Holy Spirit in the coordination of all the moving parts. Ask God for His power to prevail in behind-the-scenes operations. Pray for just the right people to fill the remaining presentation slots. Pray that those already committed to serve as emcees, speakers, presenters and coaches will be clearly directed by the Spirit as they prepare.

In delegate recruitment, we are asking in faith for not more than 5,000 pastoral trainers from 200 countries. Currently, more than 2,000 from 97 countries are in various stages of application/registration/payment. Intercede for the right pastoral trainers representing every nation of the world to be motivated and able to attend. Uphold Dr. Richard as he considers a number of pending recruitment trips to Central America, South America, Asia and Africa.

Please also pray for many to be moved to give toward the Congress in the final hours of our Inspirational Challenge. Over 75% has come in; we are in need of about $260,000 to meet our March 31 goal.

We are grateful beyond words for your faithful intercession for physical/spiritual/mental/relational protection and provision for Dr. Richard, the RREACH and GProCongress teams, and the RREACH board. God is able!

New Congress connections in Arab- and Russian-speaking worlds

Dear praying friends,

Praise God! He provided two windows of opportunity into the Arab-speaking and Russian-speaking worlds—and the required travel visas—for Dr. Ramesh Richard to make new connections for the GProCongress. In addition to praying for good fruit for the Congress, please ask the Lord for special endurance and clarity of mind since Dr. Richard’s flight out of Dallas on Sunday was delayed, leading to a missed connection and a night of sleep lost for him and his host in the Northern Africa region.

Also praise God for the steady response to the GProCongress Inspirational Challenge of $1.1 million by March 31. Generous friends have given about half of that goal amount. Every gift is precious. We just received the following note from a pastor in Ethiopia: “I am so much impressed by the scope and scale of your influence and would like to be part of it. Thank you for your sponsorship of the logistics which none of us would get chance to afford it unless and otherwise.

Dr. Richard, the RREACH team and the GProCongress team are deeply grateful for your prayers that they will remain focused on and abiding in the Lord Jesus Christ. Please continue to pray for His total protection and global provision.
