26 Feb Dr. Paul Pritchard Newsletter Jan – Feb 2018
Dear Pastor and Church Family,
As the mission outreaches of PREACH continue to grow into yet another Romantic Language Group, Romanian, we are wondered and amazed at the workings of our God, the only one true and living God, the God who is able to love the world, the whole world equally, and at the same time.
We have spent the last several weeks here in a Romanian village teaching and preaching every night the truths of God’s Word. Since early January we have been witness to a unique stirring of God’s spirit here in this place. This is our pilot run at an attempt to start a school and begin a church planting movement here in this Northeast Mountain Region of Romania bordering with Moldova and the Ukraine. Please pray with us as we seek God’s direction of future ministry here. We have begun the legal structure of our ministry and we have been offered a piece of ground to begin something new. These last several weeks of teaching here have been by invitation of a group of believers eager and faithful to learn more of Him. Our attendance has remained steady in the high 20’s low 30’s for 5 nights a week. Amazing!
I have found beauty not only in the mesmerizing spirit of hospitality of many of these believers and even unbelievers, but beauty also in a simplicity of worship. Clear also are the spiritual wanderings of the people, demonic religious strongholds, and a heavy sense of hopelessness.
We pray for laborers to come and serve with the PREACH Team. We pray for doors of open opportunity here to continue. We pray for God’s saving grace and power to sweep through these mountain valleys in a supernatural way.
This April we will be hosting a Pastors/Leaders conference in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. Men from Argentina, Chile, Peru, Paraguay and other neighboring countries will travel to Bolivia to be a part of, what I am calling, A Fresh Look At: The Theology and Practice of the Mission of God.
Several days of preaching, teaching and workshops are meant to rally, revive, and renew the focus of men and their ministries back to the global purposes of God’s mission.
Spanish, another Romantic language, like Portuguese, is a language officially spoken in 20 sovereign states and dependent territories around the world, totaling 440+ million speakers.
Later in the Year
As the fall season approaches us, we hope to be mentoring new families in our training center at Seymour. We pray for funds to complete construction on our 60,000 sq ft facility that was donated to us in 2016.
This year also holds a great responsibility for Tons of Truth commitments. We have yet remaining 90+ tons, at $800 each ton, to be financed for various works and projects overseas.
Again, I praise God daily for your faithful prayers, generous gifts, and your love for us as we seek to serve, honor, and please Him!
For His Namesake,
Dr. Paul & Terri Pritchard
