RENEWED Ministries Update

RENEWED Ministries Update – 27 July 2021

This is the RENEWED Ministries update for 27 July 2021 as provided by Reverend Courtney Richards.

To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.

Dear friends and prayer partners, Shalom aleichem! The peace of God be with you and your loved ones.

The past few weeks have been very busy for me. I have been working on our 2022 missions schedule and budget and also my annual report for our RENEWED Ministries Board meeting. This comes up on August 12. Thank God it is all done now and we look forward to approval from our Board and finalizing all the teams and plans for 2022 missions to Uganda, Kenya, Nepal and South Africa. It is our largest missions budget yet and you will be updated on this after the Board meets. We are asking you to begin to pray for these missions and to support us financially, as you normally do, even more so!

I have had a good time with my aunt and cousin here in Loganville, Georgia. It’s been a blessing since we don’t see each other often. It has also been a blessing helping those in Uganda and St. Vincent with relief needs. Uganda has been on serious lockdown due to the increase in cases of coronavirus. We have had to raise support to help them meet their basic needs. We are so grateful to our partners at Nappanee Missionary Church in Indiana for their generous gifts to both Uganda and to St. Vincent relief; to Evangel Church International in Miami for their generous gift to St. Vincent relief and various individuals who also gave generously to help meet these needs during these times of crises. We are truly blessed to have these churches and persons partner with us to provide relief for those who need it at such desperate times. This is the Body of Christ in action helping other members of the Body who need us especially in times of crisis. We are full of gratitude to you all!

I am scheduled to leave Georgia tomorrow for a heavy schedule of preaching in Indiana and Michigan in August and September. I need your prayers as I drive the next two days to Indiana with stops in Nashville, Tennessee and Indianapolis, Indiana. Please pray for God’s covering, protection and safety as I travel and for His uncommon anointing and empowering by His Spirit as I preach next week Wednesday, August 4 to Sunday, August 8 at Brown City Camp in Michigan (http://browncitycamp.org). Pray also as I will be preaching in several churches in Indiana during August and September as well as being the spiritual Emphasis week speaker at Bethel University, September 13-17 (www.betheluniversity.edu). I will also speak to the faculty, staff and student leaders at Bethel University on August 11 during their retreat. Do pray also for our Board meeting on August 12 and finally for our 25th Anniversary celebration banquet on September 9. More on the 25th Anniversary celebration banquet at a later date. We need and crave God’s mind, God’s wisdom, God’s leading, God’s equipping and empowering by His Spirit so that whatever we say and do will expand His Kingdom and bring Him glory!

Thanks for your continued partnership with us in RENEWED Ministries. We value and treasure each of you and your churches for praying for us and supporting us financially. We ask that you continue to do so and that, if possible, you increase your giving as the ministry continues to expand especially in Africa (more on that at a later time as well).

Please send your gifts by check to: RENEWED Ministries, P.O. Box 1229, Mishawaka, IN 46546, USA or give via PayPal on our website: www.renewed-ministries.org.

Thanks again and may God bless you with His richest and choicest gifts for the praise and glory of His name.

Coram Deo,
Always in His grip,
Courtney Richards
