God’s Aching Heart
Speaker: Bill Richardson, Director of the Light of the World Prayer Center
Passage: John 4:4-30, 39-42.
Originally from Scotland, Bill and his wife Sharon answered the call to ministry and studied at Multnomah University in Portland with their 2 children Amy-Rose and Peter from 2010-2013. Bill was the Senior Pastor at the Evangelical Free Church of the Palouse in Pullman WA, where his responsibilities included bible teaching, college ministry, counselling and prayer.
Heart for prayer: The Holy Spirit stirred Bill’s heart towards prayer while in Pullman. God linked him to 6:4 Fellowship which is dedicated to developing pastors with a heart for prayer and ministry of the word (Acts 6:4). This led Bill to lead times of scripture fed, spirit led, worship-based prayer. This included a day of prayer every week, a Fresh Encounter with Jesus every week, and a once-a-month pastor and ministry leader’s prayer breakfast for 20-30 people.
On 11/21/20 the Holy Spirit spoke clearly that he was going to move Bill and Sharon to the coast. On 03/17/21 Bill received an email from Alvin Vander Griend concerning a new director position at Light of the World Prayer Center and followed the very clear leading! Bill is expectant and excited to see the Lord move in Whatcom County.
