30 years of proclamation products…and many more, D.V.

Dear praying friends,

Whew! RREACH is in the last stages of inventorying 30 years of Dr. Ramesh Richard’s personal proclamation products—from books, booklets and articles to audio and video recordings (in every format from beta to digital). We’re so grateful for the volunteers who generously gave time to help pull three decades worth of materials into one central database. Please pray for Dr. Richard and the Ministries team as they strategize creative and cost-effective new ways to use these texts and messages to further proclaim the Lord Jesus Christ.

It’s hard to believe one year has passed since the culmination of the GProCongress gathering of pastoral trainers in Bangkok. Efforts to follow up with attendees and further mobilize pastoral trainers have been intensive and fruitful, yet the need remains immense. Please ask God to pour out wisdom, power, perseverance and sufficiency on the team. Intercede for more workers to help in this critical aspect of the harvest.

Eight national GPAs have taken place so far in 2017. GPAs Argentina and Gabon are scheduled to begin in the next few weeks.

Pray for all graduates to continue to connect, unite and be strengthened, and for God’s will to prevail as organizers labor to pull off many more national GPAs planned for this year.

We thank you!

Dr. Richard finishes final GProCongress recruitment trip

Dear praying friends,

I have just returned from my personal final recruitment push for the Congress. Here are some thoughts for your prayers.

Final vision-casting meeting

Final vision-casting meeting

1) God has brought fine leaders around the table to implement the GProCongress. There are still decisions to be made and actions to be taken, but the general sentiment is that at this point, we have done what can be done.

2) We saw a registrant “uptick” by about 300 in what seemed a few hours! There is a recruitment effort this week in Nairobi among Anglican Evangelical Prelates. Last week a friend made special connections in a major Asian country, and recent visits to Brazil and Argentina have already yielded fruit.

3) Our industrious back office leaders relocated to Uganda from Malaysia while maintaining a torrid schedule; they also negotiated a generous visa policy for Congress delegates with our kind host country—a great answer to prayer.

4) Coordinated follow-up is to be one of the Congress hallmarks. Our fine follow-up team just gathered in Costa Rica for planning.

5) Our Thai hosts are all “pumped up” because this Congress has a vision with action till 2020! Their volunteers are amazing.

We have fewer than 56 days left. Decisions will be made by the thousands…please pray for total protection and global provision. Pray for me since I am recovering emotionally and work-wise (about 100 hours of written labor) from a personal mishap, the theft of my briefcase at an airport–all important, much useful, some favorite, and a few irreplaceable things.

God’s graces kept my passport and credit cards from being in the briefcase, where they normally are!

Thank you for praying.
