Whew! RREACH is in the last stages of inventorying 30 years of Dr. Ramesh Richard’s personal proclamation products—from books, booklets and articles to audio and video recordings (in every format from beta to digital). We’re so grateful for the volunteers who generously gave time to help pull three decades worth of materials into one central database. Please pray for Dr. Richard and the Ministries team as they strategize creative and cost-effective new ways to use these texts and messages to further proclaim the Lord Jesus Christ.
It’s hard to believe one year has passed since the culmination of the GProCongress gathering of pastoral trainers in Bangkok. Efforts to follow up with attendees and further mobilize pastoral trainers have been intensive and fruitful, yet the need remains immense. Please ask God to pour out wisdom, power, perseverance and sufficiency on the team. Intercede for more workers to help in this critical aspect of the harvest.
Eight national GPAs have taken place so far in 2017. GPAs Argentina and Gabon are scheduled to begin in the next few weeks.
GPA Honduras graduates
Pray for all graduates to continue to connect, unite and be strengthened, and for God’s will to prevail as organizers labor to pull off many more national GPAs planned for this year.
The road to the GProCongress is not easy, but God is good, faithful and all-powerful, and we can see Him answering prayer daily. Thank you for praying. Twenty-five first-rate leaders of nine SE Asian nations who met with Dr. Ramesh Richard on his last trip have begun implementing plans to mobilize more than 1,000 delegates. Dr. Richard also met with leaders from highly influential believing communities in two other nearby countries. We’re praying for each to send 500 delegates.
Please ask God for clear direction as Dr. Richard considers trips to the Middle East and South America in the next month. Pray for the right people to be available to meet with him and for best stewardship of time, resources, physical health and relationship in the midst of numerous opportunities and demands.
Thank you for continuing to remember Dr. Richard’s family in prayer. Intercede for the Lord Jesus’ protection and peace, and praise Him for His infinite blessings.
GPA Lebanon is scheduled to start August 30. Pastors from several neighboring countries hostile to the Gospel are planning to come, eager for this opportunity. However, GPA organizers are facing difficulty finding enough candidates, since the region is volatile and so many have to be bi-vocational pastors by necessity. Please pray that at least 25 young lead pastors from this area of huge need will be able to attend and receive the invaluable GPA experience of connecting, uniting and strengthening.
This week Dr. Richard is scheduled to make two key presentations to ministry leaders about the GProCongress. We desire for these well-connected leaders to mobilize many in their networks to attend the Congress and to further spread the word to their networks. Please ask the Lord for both presentations to be well-attended and effective in communicating the need to come together in a new way at the Congress for better and increased pastoral training.
