In his words: Ramesh Richard October update

Dear praying friends,

Last month began at the tail end of a flourishing trip to Costa Rica—two evangelistic events, one large (1000+), and one private (100+), along with launching a national preaching conference at their foremost seminary. This annual conference will grow deep and wide.

RREACH convened two national Global Proclamation Academies. I visited by video with the soon-to-be graduates of the poorest nation of the world (by per capita income). Central African Republic has no consistent electricity, but they found a generator to power the call. I had to talk to them in the dark! Then with 37 younger pastors of a restricted country in Asia, meeting five road-hours away from the glare of their government, I shared a biblical charge by video.

The month concluded by my serving as a leader and speaker at a luxury event to a high-level, private think-tank outside Vail, Colorado. I am grateful to be always learning what the apostle Paul had already learned…the secret of contentment in economic extremes (Phil. 4:12).

Thank you for sending me to proclaim God’s word globally and multiply the proclamation locally. I so value your trust in me and this ministry, and I hope you feel valued, too.

In the Inexhaustible Vine,

RR

In his words: Ramesh Richard November update

Dear praying friends,

I have spent months diving into the five occurrences of our Lord’s Final Commission. I/We must (1) go with the Gospel (Mark 16); (2) proclaim forgiveness (Luke 24); (3) make disciples of all nations (Mt. 28); (4) by the power of the Spirit (Acts 1); and (5) in the way Christ was sent (John 20). What He has said is what I have done at RREACH for the last 30 years, and last month, too!

In South Asia I spoke in two of five Sunday services at the world’s fastest-growing church, each service averaging 20,000. Their pastor has never had formal training for ministry! At a mega-festival, fully half the 20,000 youth responded to my invitation. I proclaim!

Then I headed to RREACH’s first event at our first established Chair of Biblical Preaching and Pastoral Ministries. The South Asia Institute of Christian Studies (SAIACS) is one of the finest seminaries in Asia. Most of the 50 attendees were teachers of preaching and will take this preaching method to their schools. We multiply proclaimers!

Hardly recovered from jet lag, I proclaimed God’s Word through four “heart messages” to the Global Alliance for Church Multiplication in chilly Minneapolis. Their goal? Planting 4 million more churches in the next four years. And yet who will pastor those churches to health? RREACH’s GProCommission addresses the church health side of church growth.

I might as well have stayed jet-lagged! A Middle Eastern country gave me opportunities at its most prestigious university. Sixteen pre-Christ, English Literature students actively wanted to know about the meaning of life, giving me permission at the end of two hours to share my personal conviction about the Lord Jesus. I did, and offered LifeRocks as follow-up.

A pastors retreat in a war-devastated country was the highlight of the month. After several years of frustrated efforts, we received the Lord’s provision in all ways to gather half (32) of all the pastors staying to serve in this sad area, with their wives and kids under 12, for a time of loving refreshment. Although their suffering is far greater than we can imagine, God used His Word through me to encourage them.

This Thanksgiving month, I cannot but thank God and you for helping me proclaim God’s Word and multiply proclaimers of God’s Word through your priceless support of RREACH.

In the Inexhaustible One,

RR
