About Us

Anne Richardson was elected Chief of the Rappahannock Tribe in 1998 by her peers as a fourth generation Chief in her family. This was a very significant event historically, because the Rappahannocks are a very traditional, matrilineal tribe. She is the first woman to hold this position among the Powhatan tribes of Virginia since 1705.

After years of working with tribes on social, political and economic issues, the Lord led her to begin ministering His love and destiny to those nations.

Chief Anne was ordained into the ministry 2005 by Pastor Sally Beckman at Living Waters Fellowship. Building upon this journey along the ancient paths, she went first to the Western Gate, then to Israel and then on to England.

It was in 2006 that she was invited, by England, to attend the ceremonies for the opening of their 2007 events commemorating the anniversary of the founding of Jamestown as the first permanent English settlement in America. The Lord gave her an opportunity to reconcile with England for nearly 400 years of hatred that had existed due to the broken treaties between England and the Powhatan tribes. She saw in an instant, the hearts of man melt like wax in the presence of the Lord. It began a great healing among the Powhatan people such as she had never seen, and she realized this is the key that God has shown her for the healing of other nations.

God has launched Restoring Nations International to proclaim the good news of healing nations by honor. Although Chief Anne has been doing ministry for many years, after this life-changing journey she knew that God was directing her to begin a new season in her ministry through RNI.

We have witnessed God’s healing power manifest when honor is restored to people who have been dishonored.  When the principles of honor are implemented, through those who have spiritual and territorial authority, it causes breakthroughs in the spirit realm and manifests the restoration of people and places.

We believe God is taking us, just as He did the Israelites, into our year of Jubilee in 2007.  The Jewish New Year began on September 23, 2006, so we are already in Our Year of Jubilee, as we are experiencing the power of God in a brand new way.

Churches and ministries keep talking about and praying for the great end time revival, but how can one be revived without being healed? Therefore, God is now moving, by the Spirit, to heal the indigenous people and their lands, in which He placed them and gave them authority over it.

God must heal the First peoples first! Then and only then, can we experience an outpouring of revival such as the church is and has been calling for, now for some time.

He has commissioned her to go to the nations with this WORD to prepare them for the restoration He is bringing for all their suffering. He has not forgotten you, but to the contrary, He has chosen you and preserved you as a remnant, for such a time as this, so that you can stand up and receive the promise of many generations.

Chief Richardson is a dynamic and anointed speaker who hears from God. If you need prayer or wish to schedule her for a speaking engagement, preaching a revival or a teaching session, you can contact us by email at: info@restoringnations.org
