Andy Richey
I was raised in a good, moral home. My parents started going to church when I was quite young, and I can recall them both getting saved. A short time later (at about age nine), I made a profession of faith. After moving to Xenia, Ohio, under the preaching of my former pastor, Dr. David McClellan, I felt great conviction from the Holy Spirit within me about my relationship with God. I truly accepted Christ as my Saviour while sitting in an Arby’s restaurant with my pastor in August of 2002. Anyone who knew me at this time, I believe, would testify that the fruits of the Spirit began to show in my life.

I was raised in a Christian home. My parents were both saved before I was born. I was in church every time the church doors were open from the day I was born. By the age of four, I had heard all of the Bible stories, and one day I asked my daddy how I could go to Heaven. We went to my room and knelt by my bed, and my daddy told me how to go to Heaven. I was saved that day and have never looked back.

My name is Andy Richey, missionary to East Africa. I work with Peter Morris, a veteran missionary of this field for eighteen years. Since working together, God has allowed us the blessing of starting many churches while working with national men. We have also held training seminars across Kenya. Those with whom we have worked are begging us to do more to train their people in biblical doctrine and church planting.
Our desire is to move forward in this work. Our plan is to start a pattern church, start a Bible college to train nationals, and then set up mobile training seminars to reach into rural areas and villages throughout East Africa. Though many churches have been started, much more needs to be done. This is a necessary progression to have any hope of fulfilling the Great Commission across this region!
This will take much work and sacrifice, which we are ready to do. We invite you to prayerfully consider partnering with us in this effort through prayer and finances. Please contact me if you would allow us the opportunity to share our burden and calling with you and your church.
First Baptist Church of Hammond

I consider it a great privilege to represent my Saviour through my church, First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana.

Andy Richey Prayer Letter: We’ve Arrived!

Andy Richey Prayer Letter:  We've Arrived!To all our friends, co-laborers, and prayer warriors, thank you for partnering with us, allowing Connie and me to be your extensions in obedience to the Great Commission! It is our privilege to represent you in East Africa.

God has blessed tremendously, and we have just arrived in Kenya. Just one week before our departure, Connie was in the hospital for a day, receiving her last treatment to hopefully resolve a longstanding infection. We spent several weeks packing, acquiring needed materials, wrapping up personal business, and dealing with the many needs to leave the USA for many years. Praise the Lord! Our flight was without incident, and all our luggage arrived, although half of it was a couple of days late.

As it has been our plan, we arrived on the field with another family, our friends and ministry partners, the Morris family. We are currently in temporary housing, living together in a small, 2½-bedroom apartment. Please pray for us as we look for appropriate accommodations so that we may be able to live and minister effectively.

Of course, you sent us here to reach others for Christ on your behalf, and we have wasted no time in sharing the Gospel, seeing 2 saved in just a few days. Please pray for God to help us be effective in reaching those who have been confused and indoctrinated with false teaching of works-based salvation. I do praise God in seeing 2 saved, though I have witnessed to many others who are not ready to call on Christ because they are so confused and convinced they must obey, be baptized, attend church on the Sabbath, speak in tongues, among other things, to be saved. It takes much time and effort to overcome the saturation level of such lies of the Devil that are part of the spiritual culture here.

Connie and I love and appreciate each and every one of you and are grateful for your financial support. We covet your prayers for God’s blessings on our ministry and count it a true honor to serve our Saviour as your emissaries!

Your servants for lost souls across East Africa,

Andy & Connie Richey
