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.

Connie Richey
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.

Andy and Connie Richey Prayer Letter: Training Others to Serve God

Andy and Connie Richey Prayer Letter: Training Others to Serve GodWe praise God and thank you for your continued prayer and financial support of the work here in Kenya! We have been busy in an array of circumstances as we endeavor to share the saving grace of Christ Jesus to the lost, while also serving His people. Souls are being saved, and thanks to you and your prayers, the saved are growing and becoming more involved in the work of the church! It is our joy to be soldiers in God’s work.

God brought a young man by the name of Bush across our path. Bush wanted to be a soul winner and was looking for someone to guide him in being effective in showing a lost person how to be saved. We went out together many times in fulfillment of the Great Commission. Over a period of weeks, he would observe, each time taking an increasing role in sharing the good news of Jesus to many. On our sixth outing, praise God, Bush led his first soul to understand her need of a Saviour, and Esther bowed her head to pray, calling upon Jesus as her personal Saviour.

There is a special kind of joy in seeing a convert be faithful and grow! Someone I led to the Lord and watched grow tremendously was helping in the work of God in many ways. I had discipled this man to teach others basic doctrine, which he did with a man whose name is Prosper. Recently, Prosper and I were talking, reminiscing of the many blessings that came from the man, who has since moved on to serve God in another place. Prosper is, in large part, a product of this man’s example, and today he is leading our music program. In a demonstration of spiritual understanding, Prosper said to me concerning his predecessor, “God uses people to fulfill His purpose and then sometimes moves them on.” Another blessing in this category is Rachel, whom Connie led to Christ some time ago. Today Rachel is running our children’s Sunday school program and is a wonderful servant to the church!

Our good friend, fellow missionary, and team member Peter Morris has started a pastors’ training course, bringing national pastors from Western Kenya for weeklong sessions. Our church, Lighthouse Baptist Church, has had the opportunity to host these classes. God has allowed me to be a part of the teaching rotation for these wonderful servants of God with a tremendous need of understanding in some key areas of doctrine. With God’s help, we desire to assist these pastors to better serve, having an impact not only in Kamakis but also across Kenya!
On a personal note, we welcomed our sixth grandchild Anthony into this world! Connie was able to be there for the birth and will return to Kenya soon.

With God’s Word and your partnership, we will continue to serve Him and look forward to great things of eternal value to come!

Your servants for lost souls across East Africa,

Andy & Connie Richey
