Praying for provision at the perfect time

Dear praying friends,

In brief:

  • We praise God for how He is using Dr. Ramesh Richard on his current trip to sensitive areas of Asia.
  • Pray for trainings taking place for young pastors in Guatemala and Ukraine.
  • Praise God and pray for everyone working on the Global Proclamation Congress for Trainers of Pastors of Latin America & the Caribbean.
  • Pray for the process of updating LifeRocks media outreach.

The bigger picture:

GPA Ukraine - SS step 4

Pastors study “The Purpose Bridge,” step four of Dr. Richard’s seven-step method for preparing expository sermons, at Global Proclamation Academy Ukraine.

Praise God for Dr. Richard’s safe travel to the first of four different locations in sensitive areas of Asia over three weeks. He has already spoken in church services, to a pastors gathering and at an outreach event. Upcoming engagements include encouraging pastors, promoting the GProLATAM&CARIB Congress, meeting with the internationally-based members of RREACH’s ministries team and speaking at a church conference. He still needs a visa to enter the country of his final engagement, despite having applied months ago. Event organizers have urged him to keep moving forward with plans to go. Pray that God will provide exactly what Dr. Richard and the event need at exactly the right time for His glory.

Two national Global Proclamation Academies, Guatemala and Ukraine, come to a close this week. Please pray that graduates will preach and live biblically and remain connected as they go back to their homes and ministries. Also pray for an upcoming GPA in São Tomé.

The team working on the GProLATAM&CARIB Congress spans many countries and time zones. Praise God for each member of this diverse group. Pray for His total protection, global provision and manifest presence.

Much effort goes into LifeRocks videos, video clips, emails, social media posts, and more. Pray for discernment and patience with processes. Pray that every decision we make, seen and unseen, will help change the way large numbers of individuals think about the Lord Jesus!

Thank you!

New outreach video release and more

Dear praying friends,

In brief:

  • Thank God for the new LifeRocks pre-evangelistic video set to launch next week.
  • Praise Him for churches’ growing interest in RREACH ministry.
  • Pray for Dr. Richard’s recording session for PastorReach videos.
  • Uphold the team organizing the Global Proclamation Congress for Trainers of Pastors of Latin America & the Caribbean.
  • Pray for national Global Proclamation Academies starting next week in Honduras (women’s) and Kosovo.

The bigger picture:

Another LifeRocks video will, the Lord willing, go public next week. Praise God for the message of “Decongesting the Sad Soul and Dark Heart” and how the production came together. Pray for a massive number of pre-Christians to see it and want to know more.

RREACH values every individual and entity which gives time, encouragement, finances, prayer, skills and more to make this ministry possible. We thank God for how His Body works together to grow. Several churches have expressed increased interest in the ministry. Praise God! Pray that the Lord Jesus will guide them and us in developing these connections.

The Lord willing, Dr. Richard plans to film a number of new short videos for PastorReach next week. Each video features Dr. Richard’s response to a question asked by a pastoral leader. Please intercede for discernment as he prepares and for the team making sure production runs smoothly.

The GProLATAM&CARIB Congress Organizing Team is climbing a massive mountain in preparing for the Congress, to be held in Panama City, Panama, the Lord willing, in October 2020. Ask God to bless them with discernment, dependability and drive as they serve. Only He can and will make it happen!

Two national GPAs are scheduled to begin late next week in Honduras (women’s) and Kosovo. Please pray for those organizing the 10-day pastoral training events, the right 25 attendees and God’s Spirit to move mightily to connect, unite and strengthen pastoral leaders.

In his words: Ramesh Richard October update

Dear praying friends,

Last month began at the tail end of a flourishing trip to Costa Rica—two evangelistic events, one large (1000+), and one private (100+), along with launching a national preaching conference at their foremost seminary. This annual conference will grow deep and wide.

RREACH convened two national Global Proclamation Academies. I visited by video with the soon-to-be graduates of the poorest nation of the world (by per capita income). Central African Republic has no consistent electricity, but they found a generator to power the call. I had to talk to them in the dark! Then with 37 younger pastors of a restricted country in Asia, meeting five road-hours away from the glare of their government, I shared a biblical charge by video.

The month concluded by my serving as a leader and speaker at a luxury event to a high-level, private think-tank outside Vail, Colorado. I am grateful to be always learning what the apostle Paul had already learned…the secret of contentment in economic extremes (Phil. 4:12).

Thank you for sending me to proclaim God’s word globally and multiply the proclamation locally. I so value your trust in me and this ministry, and I hope you feel valued, too.

In the Inexhaustible Vine,

RR
