Dear praying friends,
Podcasts! Know what they are? I am becoming convinced that podcasts are better than mere videos in delivering content to more engaged, niche audiences. LifeRocks our podcast has begun. Please pray for deep and wide reach into pre-Christians. You can even sign up by clicking here.
I kept a U.S. oriented speaking itinerary last month. Eighteen men from a rural congregation heard me at a Baptist campsite. Then I spoke at a new congregation of 100+ being established in far North Texas, with all the excitement of a start-up.
Hurried overnight advancement trips to Nashville—15 meetings in 28 hours—and Atlanta—to attend the gala of a sister ministry—were tiring, but tremendous.
Pastoral visits with the two finest preachers in America—one grieving from the loss of his beloved and the other recovering from major surgery—are return expressions of blessed friendships of decades. Oh yes, I should not forget board and staff meetings, which keep ministry mechanisms legal and viable.
GProAcademy Chad in West Africa graduated 25 young pastoral leaders of whom 19 had malaria while going through the program. A global mobilization team is working on bringing the right 500 to the October GProCongress Latin America and the Caribbean. Please pray for their reach into candidates with thousands of phone calls and messages. Also, the June 2020 Dallas GProAcademy is looking for U.S. visas for 25 younger pastoral leaders. We have 10 more to go. The situation is formidable. Please pray.
My greatest joy last month was the launch of a monthly prayer video conference call. You can join from any part of the world for a fast 30 minutes of guided prayer for this ministry. Will you join us? Thanks for not letting us run out of fuel by your prayers. I especially need them as we make major decisions in the coming weeks for the rest of 2020.
In the Inexhaustible Vine,
