  20. Greetings in the name of our dear Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,

    I am Nehru Naik, I am native of small and backward village NVK THANDA,
    Peddavoora Manadal, Nalagonda District, telagana India. I am
    born in a very poor family, my parents were daily wage labours. I
    belong to Schedule Tribe community which is most neglected community
    in the society.

    Voice calling me ” I NEED YOU MY SON”, I looked here and there but no
    one was there. I opened the BIBLE, God spoke to me through the
    scriptures, Nahum :1:15. According the Scripture I decided to search
    the Gospel to the unreached areas of our society. And started
    preaching the gospel in the year 1992 till now preached 24 villages of
    our surroundings after taking Bible Training in collage and
    established achurch, where saints are worshiping regularly.

    One day while mediating the God’s word, God spoken with me by the
    Scripture James 1:27 to care of orphan children. Hence, we have
    started small orphanage with 10.orphans by providing food, shelter,

    We request you to kindly pray for these children as they need of
    school books, bags & fees. We love you to invite you to come to our
    children home whenever you visit India.

    With much love &

    Thank you Pastor Rick for you help, I’m a pastor of a Spanish Church in Hialeah Gardens Florida , I’m really glad to get all your teachings, I preferred to receive your Resources in Spanish, again thanks for your help, you are a blessing to my life

  44. I have great Respect and Admiration for Pastor Rick. The unselfish, kind, considerate, and compassionate attitude that he has for other pastors, is Refreshing and promising. In today’s aggressive, territorial church environment, we have Pastors and members who do not want to share with others. I know the Houston area is full of Pastors who are scared and unwilling to share info and/or people out of fear of losing people. We are fortunate to have Saddleback materials available to us. Thank You.

  45. Iam Bishop G eorge Kasharu, senior and founder of Redeemed church, in Busonga Region, Iam interested to be receiving your teaching materials.may God bless you looking forward to hearing from you.

    Yours in His Grace,

Please pray with us that the Lord may accomplish the vision.

    We extend our innermost request to you to extend your loving work here and more so to reach us with the word that the Lord has put in you. We really pray and hope that with the direction of the Holy Spirit you will reach us here. It is our deep prayer that the Lord may open wide doors for you to be able to pay a ministerial trip to Kenya and conduct a training seminar with us.
