“This is what God has made me to do”

Dear praying friends,

Great news from Dr. Ramesh Richard in Thailand: “The Lord just gave us a great harvest at a private gathering of about 100 opinion leaders, with 60% being pre-Christian, and all of them want to know about Jesus. Eight or more of them received Jesus today. Follow-up has begun! This is what God has made me to do—Proclaim His Word and multiply Proclaimers of His Word to deliver spiritual health to large numbers of individuals worldwide.”

Dr. Richard also spoke to a gathering of 1,000 Christian leaders about the tremendous need for pastoral training, and this weekend he is to speak to a large group of missionaries in Southeast Asia. Next week he flies back, the Lord willing, in time for the start of the 2017 Dallas GPA. Please ask the Lord to continue to speak through and sustain this “Vagabondslave.”

We’re also praising God for granting 29 pastors the visas they need to attend the Dallas GPA, which begins June 4! Pray for final preparations—on our side to welcome them and on their side to come to the U.S. Pray for smooth and safe travels, protection of loved ones, and a powerful three weeks of connecting, uniting and strengthening.

Please also remember the GProCommission team in their massive post-GProCongress effort to connect and nurture pastoral trainers and pastoral training.

Prayer priority: right and greatest number of GProCongress delegates

Dear praying friends,

Dr. Ramesh Richard, the “Vagabondslave,” is on the road again—and primarily will be for the next three months—recruiting delegates for the GProCongress. We thank God for how He has protected and provided for Dr. Richard personally during the GProCongress season.

Dr. Richard particularly requests prayer for the right and greatest number of delegates to the Congress. Please pray for:

  • up to 5,000 of the right delegates representing 200 countries and every aspect of pastoral training
  • favor as Dr. Richard casts the vision during several special opportunities God has opened on his current trip
  • good results from prior and ongoing recruitment efforts
  • a smooth registration process for each delegate
  • protection and financial provision for many coming from financially and/or politically troubled situations

We praise God for the privilege to know Him through the Lord Jesus Christ, to proclaim Him, and to work toward more and better proclamation for the very best of many, everywhere.
