Another answer to praise

Dear praying friends,

A couple of weeks ago we asked you to pray that Dr. Richard, who was stuck in South Carolina, would make it back to Dallas in time to catch his flight to Indonesia. We also asked you to praise God for what He would do, including possibly giving Dr. Richard the opportunity to introduce someone to the Lord Jesus Christ. To see that post click here.

This is how God answered. Dr. Richard did get back to Dallas in time for his Indonesia flight. On the first leg, he sat next to a businessman. The two conversed about life and business, and it came out that the man was headed to India to see his dying mother. Dr. Richard asked for permission to pray together in the Name of Jesus—”the only name I have to pray with,” he says. The man assented. When they parted ways he waited at Ramesh’s gate to say goodbye. Dr. Richard was also able to connect him with a believer at his destination in India. “So God was working there, too,” Dr. Richard says. Not only did he make that flight, his seatmate, planning to fly through Chicago, was rescheduled through Dallas. “When I boarded the plane, the seat next to me was empty. Finding him there shows that God wanted me in his life.”

The Lord willing, Dr. Richard is scheduled to travel back to Dallas from Turkey this week, fly to Orlando for a brief but highly strategic meeting regarding GProCongress mobilization, and finish the week participating in Camino Global’s 125th anniversary celebrations. Thank you for praising God with us, intercessors. Please continue to ask, seek and knock, with thanksgiving, for His total protection and global provision.

Praises from Montana; GPA Trinidad and Tobago

Dear praying friends,

We have much to praise God for! During a trip to Montana last week, Dr. Richard and Bonnie got to enjoy a couple of refreshing days amid the splendors of creation. Dr. Richard also spoke in three church services, met with church leaders, and spoke at an lovely, dinner event. Organizers estimate at least 12 people made written professions for the Lord Jesus Christ. Although brief, it was a wonderful respite from constant GProCongress intensity.

The Lord willing, Dr. Richard hopes to join Bonnie for a few days this week with their son Robby and his wife, Nathalie, and super-grandkids Joshua (5) and Emma (3) before leaving again on a three-country SE Asia sojourn to share the GProCongress vision with several groups. Praise God for these opportunities. Ask Him for joyful times with family and friends, travel and health mercies, and another wave of excitement about the Congress.

GPA Trinidad and Tobago started last Friday and is scheduled to wrap up Sunday, Oct. 25. Praise God for this opportunity for very focused connecting, uniting and strengthening, and pray for lasting fruit from it.

Thank you!
