Dear praying friends,
Dr. Richard appreciates your ongoing prayer for his writing time. He hopes to get in some productive hours today and next week, with a break in between for speaking engagements. Please pray that the Lord will block internal and external distractions (which seem to multiply inopportunely!) and grant him insight and progress.
A get-together in the next few days offers Dr. Richard the chance to meet new friends and talk about life. Pray that this will be an extraordinary time of fellowship and open the door to lasting relationships. Pray, too, for his time speaking to missions leaders in a country with escalating challenges yet enormous potential.
The GProCommission team continues to labor industriously. Lift up the GProCentral arm, 11 dedicated colleagues located across eight time zones who speak a cumulative 20 languages. They make about 2,100 calls/emails/messages each month to encourage pastoral trainers in over 68 countries, as well as assist with GProCommission material translation.
For the 2018 Dallas GPA, we’ve now accepted 24 pastors, seven from new countries! We’re waiting to hear the results of two visa interviews and praying over five more coming up for R from St. Kitts and Nevis, D from Niger, E from Angola, L from Lesotho, and M from Burkina Faso.
Thank you for praying with and for us!
