Andy Richey Prayer Letter:  Seeing Fruit Along the WayIt has been a great couple of months since our last letter. Many have been saved, prayers have been answered, lives have been touched, and miles have been traveled. We thank you for partnering with us and allowing us to continue building eternal fruit together.

We get to make many new friends as we travel on deputation, some partnering with us financially and many in prayer. God does hear prayer, and we covet yours. Connie had occasion to spend an evening with a precious couple. She learned while she was there that intercessory prayers are made on my behalf daily through a faithful man in that home. When I learned of this, I was very moved with emotion and encouragement. Looking back at recent times, I could feel that God was looking out for me, strengthening me during some challenges. I had tears in my eyes as I dwelt on how God has used this man to put God’s mighty hand on my life. Thank you to all who pray for us!

Bible Baptist Church, Xenia, Ohio, invited us to be a part of their VBS. I had the honor of preaching to the young people. Throughout the week we saw 11 call on Christ and saw many other decisions made. One who was saved at VBS was the daughter of a man I led to Christ several years ago. His mother (her grandmother) had been praying for many years that God would save them both. How precious and humbling to be used of God in answer to prayer! Thank you, Pastor McClellan and friends at BBC!

At Messiah Baptist Church in Denver, Colorado, I had the opportunity to preach their missions conference. It is exciting what God allows us to be a part of as we continue to work towards being on the field full-time in East Africa!

While these are some highlights over the past two months, we have been in many churches preaching, teaching, and sharing the Gospel along the way. God has blessed with safety and fruit across Ohio, Indiana, New Jersey, and Colorado.


1. We are being used of God to see people saved and spiritual decisions made!
2. God is answering prayers!

Prayer Requests

1. Pray for souls to be saved.
2. Pray that God would place a hedge of protection around the churches in Africa from Al-Shabaab terrorists.
3. Pray for new churches to partner with us in our work for the Lord that we may get on the field as soon as possible.

Your servant for lost souls across East Africa,

Andy Richey
