March Mailing

Dear Partner,

I am so glad to have the opportunity to write this letter to you. I believe that each word contains an opportunity for you to release your faith for a miracle and to receive the touch of the Lord upon your life. There is also a great opportunity to partner with me in a very special project…a project that will allow you to sow into the lives of hurting people, then believe God to multiply it back to you in the way you need it most.

The Lord has spoken to me again…about Africa. He has told me that He is sending me to the West African nation of Ghana and to the Ashanti kingdom located there. The kingdom of Ashanti was established in 1670. Its capital city is Kumasi, which is a three and a half hour drive to the north by road from Ghana’s national capital, Accra.

His majesty, King Osei Tutu II, will celebrate his 15th year as leader of the Ashanti people this coming May. In my last visit to Africa, I met with his majesty and he extended a personal invitation for me to conduct a MAJOR HEALING CRUSADE in the big stadium in Kumasi to coincide with his 15-year anniversary as king.

I have prayed about it and accepted his invitation. So, in May right after Mother’s Day, I will fly with my evangelistic healing team to Kumasi, Ghana.

As has been my custom for many years, I will take a medical team of doctors, as well as food to address the needs in the villages and orphanages. There are a lot of medical needs there, as well as a need for food—especially for the orphans who have lost their parents. My heart goes out to them, as I am sure yours does too.

The medical team of doctors—all spirit-filled—will hold clinics, treat
patients, and distribute medicines, as well as pray for salvation among the people. The last time we did this was in Kenya. You may remember my showing the videos of the thousands of people seen and cared for by the doctors and staff.

I well understand what a blessing it is for someone to be examined by a doctor for the first time in their lives. In addition to the medical team, we are planning to provide food for hungry children and families in need.

It is said that a person never stands as tall as when they stoop to help a child. After all, children are the next generation, and God loves them. As Jesus Himself said, Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God (Luke 18:16).

In addition to the medical care and food distribution, I will be conducting a major healing crusade in the enormous stadium there in Kumasi. It has been prophesied that my next crusade in Africa will be HUGE. Surely God has opened a mighty door, and I can’t wait to walk through it! That’s why I need your help, and I need it now!

So, at the Lord’s leading, I am calling on you and all my other partners worldwide. I’m calling together two groups of people to help me with this special project from the Lord. This crusade is not a part of my regular monthly ministry budget. It is over and above, so I am asking you to pray about how you can participate in sharing God’s Word, His saving and healing power, food, and medicine with those in need in Ghana.

Group 1

The Lord has spoken to me to ask 300 people (like Gideon’s 300 in the Bible in Judges chapter 7) to sow a special seed faith gift of $1,000. Yes, that’s right—300 Gideons to sow a gift of $1,000. That will take care of the cost of the entire healing crusade in the Kumasi stadium!

Group 2

I am also asking a second group of 1,000 people to sow a special seed of $100 for the medical team of doctors and staff, plus the food for hungry children and families.

I realize this is asking a lot, but to take advantage of this open door of opportunity which God has provided, and to walk through it, I really, really, really need your help.

With all my heart, I am asking you to pray about joining group 1 or group 2 and to be a part of this huge evangelistic campaign in West Africa.

I don’t need to tell you about my calling to African nations. I believe that you already can sense the urgency in my heart through this letter. I know this much…
I believe that you can have a part in every soul that comes to Christ, every person treated medically by our doctors, every child and family touched by our food distribution, plus every healing miracle that will occur. I tell you, my hands are shaking in excitement and God’s anointing even as I write this letter.

Partner, will you help me? Will you be one of 300 Gideons at $1,000 each? Or will you be one of 1,000 partners at $100 each for this special project before the Lord? Will you sow what you can into this outreach? I need your help. And I am asking you for a quick response because I must begin paying all the costs very soon.

Now, don’t miss this… I have a special gift for everyone who joins group 1—
a beautiful Expect a Miracle blanket. The blanket is shown in the PS of this letter.

This special blanket features many of the great scripturally-based, faith-inspiring phrases that my father, Oral Roberts, and I are known for…like “Expect a Miracle” and “God is a good God!” It can be thrown over your legs while you are sitting, watching TV, reading, writing, scrapbooking, sewing, or whatever else you may be doing. It can also be thrown around your shoulders. It makes a great gift for a special loved one too! It is symbolic of wrapping yourself up in the faith of the Lord.

This blanket is being woven as I write this letter and will be ready for me to send in the mail soon. Will you pray about being one of the 300 Gideons at $1,000?

Also, I have something very special for everyone who joins group 2 and sows a seed of $100 or more—a fabulous print I have titled He’s a Healing Jesus. The print is shown in the PS of this letter.

This print has on it three powerful scriptures—Psalm 107:20, 3 John 2, and Isaiah 53:5—which are synonymous with healing throughout the Bible and in this ministry today. I think it would look lovely in your home…perhaps in the living room,
den, kitchen, bedroom, or office. It is suitable for framing, and it is really beautiful!

Now once again, will you help me with this project in Ghana that God has spoken to me about? Will you be a part of group 1 and be one of 300 Gideons to sow $1,000? Or will you be a part of group 2 and be one of 1,000 partners to sow $100?

I have to move quickly on this! Time is racing ahead, and I have to get started. My advance team has already been to Ghana and back. They went just a few weeks ago. Everything is in place. The king is ready. The pastors and leaders are ready. The people are ready. The stadium is ready. All is in motion now.

I have a great passion to obey the Lord in this special project—and I am counting on Him to come through in a mighty way as we sow our seeds in faith, believing for Him to do something great for the people of Africa. Together, let’s strike a blow for deliverance against the onslaught of the devil. Let’s bring the healing power of God, plus doctors and food, to hurting, hungry people!

Will you be a part of group 1? Or will you be a part of group 2? Will you plant a seed and help the people of Ghana? I have enclosed a place for you to respond to the call that God has laid on my heart. Also, be sure to tell me your prayer requests for me to pray over this month. I am ready to pray and believe with you for God to meet your needs according to His riches in glory (Philippians 4:19).

Please respond as soon as you can. And remember, God is faithful to provide for you according to His Word, which says, Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness (2 Corinthians 9:10). God bless you!

Your partner for miracles,

   Richard

productsPS. Remember—all those who are part of group 1 and sow a seed of $1,000 as one of 300 Gideons will receive the beautiful Expect a Miracle blanket as my gift back to you. All those who join group 2 and sow a special seed of $100 will receive the He’s a Healing Jesus print which is suitable for framing. I’m hoping to hear from you soon!
