John answered and said to them all, “As for me, I baptize you with water; but One is coming who is mightier than I, and I am not fit to untie the thong of His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” – Luke 3:16 

And to the eyes of the sons of Israel the appearance of the glory of the LORD was like a consuming fire on the mountain top. – Exodus 24:17

Ray & Renaid Almgren are the founders of Fire For the Nations International, a teaching, equipping, and prophetic ministry based in Monroeville, PA. They were catapulted by the Holy Spirit, with assistance from Reinhard Bonnke, into international ministry in December 1998 when God gave Ray a prophetic word for Finland. They ministered in 8 churches, in 8 cities, in 8 days, and God wonderfully confirmed His word with signs and wonders.

In March 1999, Ray & Renaid ministered in Sweden, and then in June they had a life changing encounter with God’s Presence and since that time have ministered in Norway, Sweden & Finland a second time, France, Belgium, Germany, England, Holland, Ireland, Israel, Nigeria, Ghana, Jordan, and most recently Wales and Northern Ireland. They minister regularly in Israel and France.

R & R both worked at Cornerstone TV, a 24 hour Christian station near Pittsburgh, PA. Ray served as both Accounting Manager and Financial Manager, and Renaid was a Guest Coordinator and Make-up Supervisor. They pioneered a church and pastored for almost 8 years, as well as helping to establish House of His Presence, a house of prayer in Pittsburgh, which they helped lead for more than 5 years until March 2013. Until their assignment ended in September, 2017, they were part of the leadership team at Petra International Ministries in Pittsburgh, PA and helped oversee Renaissance House of Prayer at Petra. They also write The Renaissance Movement (a weekly prayer letter), coordinate and host conferences, and mobilize and train intercessors.

Whether ministering locally or internationally, John 2:5, “Whatever He says to you, do it,” is the scripture that best sums up their calling and desire to serve the Lord. With the attitude, "If Ray and Renaid can do it, so can you," their passion is to see others experience God's Presence, be healed (spirit, soul, & body), learn to hear His voice, discover their gifts and callings, and to be released into ministry as well. They regularly teach on the Prophetic, Intercession, Spiritual Identity, Healing, and the Holy Spirit. Their Healing Manual was translated in Arabic for training with Arab Christians in Nazareth, Israel. 

Ray is a 1979 graduate of Christ For the Nations in Dallas, TX. Both Ray & Renaid are ordained through CFN's Fellowship of Ministers and Churches, and Ray serves as the FMC's regional rep for the northeastern United States. FFNI is under FMC’s covering.

R & R also serve as regional (Western PA) leaders with the Pennsylvania Apostolic Prayer Network (PAPN), under the leadership of Abby Abildness, Director of Healing Tree International (HTI) and PA State Leader and coordinator for Cindy Jacob's U.S. Reformation Prayer Network (USRPN) and Dr. John Benefiel's Heartland Apostolic Prayer Network (HAPN).
