Please be in prayer for Dr. Richard. He is currently out of the country, and his bag and many personal belongings were stolen. Pray they are recovered quickly so he can continue focusing on GProCongress mobilization.
You prayed for Dr. Richard’s quick recovery from his packed two-week, four-stop trip in Southeast Asia. Upon arriving back in Dallas, he promptly began outrunning the RREACH staff. Thank you, and please continue to call on The Inexhaustible One:
As the GProCongess program is becoming more defined, Dr. Richard needs someone to come alongside him in crucial implementation.
A strong wave of funding is needed over the next few months for Congress preparation. God has provided many wonderful donors; please ask for that provision to flourish.
GPA Indonesia, to start in less than two weeks and GPA Peru is set to open April 16. Both need prayer for finding the right 25 delegates.
The visa process for the 2015 Dallas GPA is still proving unusually difficult, but the Lord has now supplied 20 candidates with visas. Praise Him! And intercede for the seven more who must apply or reapply.
Wisdom and capacity are needed as Dr. Richard evaluates his multiplying responsibilities and opportunities.
It has been nearly one year since Dr. Richard’s dear mother, Manorama, graduated to heaven. On Thursday, April 9, which would have been her 91st birthday, Dr. Richard was able to spend some time in reflection and thanks to the Redeemer, the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for your kind support on this journey. It has blessed the family deeply.
Greetings in the name of our resurrected Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! We rejoice with you that because He lives, all who trust Him may live. Dr. Richard has just completed a two-week trip to Southeast Asia, where he had several engagements to proclaim that Good News. Some items to remember for prayer as he returns include:
Rapid recovery from the stress of travel
Clarity regarding the many opportunities that come his way
Preparation for upcoming talks, articles and other ministry engagements
Continued GProCongress program and partnership development
GPA Peru is scheduled for April 16 – 25 and GPA Indonesia for April 23 – May 2. Please pray for the organizers and those planning to attend, as well as their families and ministries.
Also specifically lift up those preparing for the 2015 Dallas GPA—the RREACH team, the pastors (especially with regard to visas and airfare), the Master Coaches, the host families, and many others who serve in different ways.
The Lord provided what Dr. Richard called a “terrific” trip of ministry through India. Thank you for your prayers! It was also physically and spiritually rigorous, and your prayer for his rejuvenation and scheduled trip to attend a conference of Christian leaders in the Pacific Northwest would be appreciated. Next week, the Lord willing, a number of key GProCongress personnel will gather in Dallas for intensive meetings. We thank Him for these gifted and committed individuals and request prayer for their preparation, travel, discussion, decisions, and execution of plans.
And, believe it or not, the 2015 Dallas GPA is coming soon. To date we have accepted 16 candidates, two from new countries. We are praying for 25 fine young pastors to attend, at least five from countries never before represented at the GPA. Pastor S from Ivory Coast, a new country, applied for and received his visa this week! Please pray the Lord’s favor on these, and on the national GPA currently going on in Cuba.
