On the road…again, national GPAs and GProCongress team needs

Dear praying friends,

Thank you for praying Dr. Richard through a short GProCongress mobilization visit to Orlando. As this is being written, he is in the air on his way to Myanmar and then Bangkok for more Congress mobilization and program planning. The Lord willing, he is to come back via Canada to lecture on preaching in two different cities as well as do additional Congress vision-casting. Please remember the whole Richard family during this higher-pressure time. Pray that they will walk closely with the Lord Jesus Christ, find strength and rest in Him, and that He will be honored in and through their lives.

GPA Lesotho is just beginning. Pray for special connecting, uniting and strengthening there. We are planning on a few more national GPAs coming up this year, the Lord willing, in Trinidad and Tobago, Thailand and Panama. Pray for a full complement of delegates at each and protection and provision for the organizers and teachers.

God has blessed the GProCongress with a wonderful Core team and set of advisers. Ask Him to direct and empower them in helping strengthen pastoral trainers, who have never come together on a global level, through the GProCongress. Thank you!

God is doing great things!

Dear praying friends,

Our God is doing great things! Dr. Richard set that theme for last week’s RREACH Board of Directors meeting using Psalm 126:2b-3:

Then they said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.”
The Lord has done great things for us; We are glad.

Be glad with us for the great things God is unfolding through the RREACH ministry:

  • RREACH’s Board is highly encouraged about direction and progress; their next meeting is being planned around a national GPA graduation
  • Interest in the GProCongress is swelling and a number of GProCongress mobilization events, from Orlando to Myanmar, are coming up
  • 28 pastors graduated from politically plagued and impoverished GPA Burkina Faso last Saturday; GPA Lesotho will begin, the Lord willing, this Thursday, Sept. 24
  • Although the RREACH office and our neighbor were burglarized over the weekend, the setbacks appear to be relatively small, and no RREACH staff were present

We are glad for your encouragement and prayers. Please ask the Lord Jesus for His continuing empowerment, protection and provision of Dr. Richard and this ministry, that all nations will see His greatness!

GPA Burkina Faso underway, California trip and upcoming RREACH board meetings

Dear praying friends,

GPA Burkina Faso is underway! Pastor K, 2014 Dallas GPA graduate from Togo, is helping organizers Pastor A (2014) and Pastor P (2011) run the event. Ask God to connect, unite and strengthen the delegates in a mighty way.

11954806_1639488026293649_5734926929391420519_nPlease also pray for good attendance at the GProCongress Vision Luncheon scheduled for Tuesday in southern California. It is a strategic mobilization event. Also intercede for the Lord’s total protection and global provision over the GProCongress website and registration process. The team needs wisdom and perseverance as they face unusual technical issues in these areas; we praise God for how He has protected and provided in spite of such challenges thus far.

Please pray for the RREACH board of directions meeting this Friday and Saturday.

Praise God, too, for how He has watched over Dr. Richard and his family. Pray for His continued mercies of health and safety, and especially for them to be drawn closer to the Lord Jesus Christ daily. Thank you!
