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!

Please continue to pray for Ramesh Richard and RREACH

Dear friends,

Thank you for your continued prayers for Dr. Richard and RREACH. Dr. Richard has returned from Costa Rica, and we will have an update on that national GPA and his trip there soon.

Please join us now in praying for these ministry and operational requests:

Media Outreach: 

RREACH’s Media Outreach ministry harnesses the power of Facebook to reach unbelievers with the Gospel. Through this initiative, RREACH operates a Facebook page (www.facebook.com/liferocks.org) where we post thought-provoking content from Dr. Richard. From the page, visitors can link to our program-specific web site (www.LifeRocks.org) where they can watch evangelistic videos by Dr. Richard, get more information and chat with a worldview-trained evangelist.

In the first half of 2013, our Facebook content was placed in the newsfeeds of more than 21 million Facebook users around the world (via Facebook advertising.) More than 200,000 Facebook users responded by “liking” our content, and more than 5,800 Facebook users “shared” our content on their own pages, exposing their friends to our posts as well. Additionally, nearly 93,000 unique visitors came to our program-specific web site for further information about the Gospel.

Please pray for:

  • the continued success of Facebook and web site advertising
  • those who are responding to the invitation to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior
  • The video editing team in the Philippines, which is animating the monthly evangelistic videos posted on the http://www.LifeRocks.org page

Pastor’s Family Care Fund: 

RREACH’s Pastor’s Family Care Fund provides specifically for Gospel proclaimers and their families during times of extreme need. Dr. Richard has noted over the years that wherever relief is needed, pastors often are the ones administering it. They and their families sacrifice to help others.

Please pray for:

  • Financial partners to support this fund
  • Plans to come together to use designated funds to help pastors and their families in Egypt and Syria.
  • The pastors and their families in those countries who are facing danger and persecution in their ministries.

Dr. Richard’s personal proclamation ministry: 

Dr. Richard’s Personal Proclamation of the Lord Jesus Christ is at the heart of the RREACH ministry. He does this both by teaching pastors and believers at conferences and from church pulpits and also through evangelism—with burden for society’s unbelieving opinion leaders.

Please pray for these upcoming opportunities:

  • Sept. 14: Dr. Richard will be in Atlanta, where he will meet with the ICETE to discuss the upcoming Global Proclamation Congress for Pastoral Trainers 2016 in Manila, Philippines.
  • Oct. 5-9: Dr. Richard will travel to Orlando, where he will meet with Global Church Movements.

RREACH operational requests:

One of RREACH’s operational values is to be “Lean, Nimble and Wise” in its use of the gifts donors graciously give. With that in mind, please pray:

  • For wisdom as Dr. Richard interviews a well-qualified person for employment with RREACH as an administrative assistant

For His glory,

Edie Ross
