Randall and Theresa Richardson

» Africa » Mauritius » Reunion » Seychelles

In February 1994, the Randall Richardsons assumed the oversight of the island nations of Mauritius, Seychelles, and Réunion. Originally appointed to Madagascar in 1980 after a two-year AIM assignment, they served for 16 years in Madagascar, during which time the church grew from 2,000 members to more than 25,000. The Randall Richardsons pioneered the work in Seychelles with the help of a Malagasy brother, while giving leadership to the church in Mauritius and working to establish the church in La Réunion. God has blessed with over 4,000 constituents, 18 churches and preaching points, and 14 licensed ministers in the three nations. In 2000 the Richardsons were unable to secure a resident visa for Mauritius. Therefore, following a short furlough, they studied French in Bordeaux, France, for nine months before establishing residency in La Réunion, from where they lead the work in the three nations.

"When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting...And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance." Acts of the Apostles 2:1-2, 4

Thankful that hungry hearts are still being filled. Today is a great day to receive the Holy Spirit just like on the Day of Pentecost!
