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.

Praise for the privilege to serve

Dear praying friends,

In brief:

  • Praise God for the countless ways He has blessed Dr. Richard and RREACH.
  • Please keep praying for national Global Proclamation Academies (GPA) and pastoral training/pastoral trainer follow-up.
  • Pray for our Global Proclamation Associates (GProAssociates) gathering late October.
  • Pray for production of PASTORREACH, a media digest addressing questions from pastoral leaders around the world.

The bigger picture:

PASTORREACH Logo [Updated]-02

Dr. Richard led the RREACH office staff in a day of praise, prayer, reflection and planning this week. A special hour of prayer with global team members from 10 countries and eight different time zones around the world set the foundation for the next few months of ministry. We praise God for the privilege of serving Him and the multitude of other blessings He has poured on Dr. Richard and his ministry. Pray with us that He will continue to enable Dr. Richard to fulfill His gifting and calling.

Despite the danger, 37 young pastors in an undisclosed Asian country have gathered for a national GPA that will wrap up this weekend. Pray for them. Pray for academies coming up in Chile, Guyana and The Gambia, and for the strengthening of our follow-up with graduating pastors and with pastoral trainers through the GProCommission.

The Lord willing, a gathering of Ramesh Richard’s Global Proclamation Associates (GProAssociates) will come to Dallas in late October. Through this initiative, younger colleagues—select and proven Dallas GPA graduates—will initiate and respond as needed to pastoral training opportunities worldwide on Dr. Richard’s behalf. Please uphold them and us as we lay the groundwork in planning and resources for this important milestone moment. Some are still waiting for U.S. visas.

Another initiative rolling out in the next few weeks is PASTORREACH, a weekly, short video series featuring Dr. Richard answering real questions from real pastors about real life ministry around the world. Pray for the Lord’s direction and provision through the production process and that PASTORREACH will encourage many.

More, better and lasting fruit

Dear praying friends,

In brief:

  • Pray for production of Dr. Richard’s new short evangelistic videos.
  • Praise God for sustaining Dr. Richard through some demanding weeks of speaking, filming and considering RREACH’s future.
  • National Global Proclamation Academy (GPA) action is high: pray for GPAs in Republic of Congo (in process), Ecuador (starting today), and Central African Republic (to begin in a week).
  • Please lift up pastors and pastoral trainers serving in areas of natural or man-made turbulence.

The bigger picture:

Pastor Tata meeting with other Cameroonian pastors

Pastor T, Dallas GPA 2018, meets with other Cameroonian pastors about escalating conflict in the country. (Note: He is carrying the RREACH water bottle he received at the GPA.) Because of direct threats, Pastor T had to move his family away from their home after he returned from the Dallas GPA. They pray it is a temporary move. This is one glimpse of how your prayers and encouragement of Dr. Ramesh Richard and RREACH are affecting the world. Thank you.

Last week Dr. Richard had two recording sessions, one for LifeRocks evangelistic talks and one for PASTORREACH, an upcoming project addressing questions sent in by pastoral leaders. Praise God for the time he had to prepare for these and for the sessions running well. Pray for good production of the videos and that new elements of LifeRocks will increase people’s exposure to the Lord Jesus, especially in otherwise unreachable socio-economic tiers and geographical areas.

Also praise God for the direction prepared as RREACH board members recently discussed ministry succession. Please pray that this will enable Dr. Richard and RREACH, as the Lord Jesus charged His followers, to “go and bear” more, better and lasting fruit (John 15:16).

Twenty-five young pastors gathered last week for GPA Republic of [perennially troubled] Congo. The Lord willing, they will graduate late this week.

GPA Ecuador is kicking off today and GPA Central African Republic next Thursday. Other national GPAs planned for this fall include Hungary, an undisclosed Asian country, Chile, The Gambia, Guyana, Bolivia and the Solomon Islands. Intercede for attendees to learn and connect well and for God’s protection over all involved; the spiritual warfare can be intense.

Please remember all pastors and pastoral trainers around the world who serve in difficult—even humanly impossible—circumstances. Ask the Lord Jesus to favor them with joy, courage, strength and a sense of His powerful and shielding presence.

Thank you for praying!
