Zion

“For Jehovah has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His habitation. This is My resting place forever; here will I dwell, for I have desired it” (Psalm 132:13-14).
We all have to endeavor to reach this high peak [of Zion within the church life as Jerusalem]…. We surely need to be desperate to pray at any cost and to pay the cost just as the apostle Paul did. We should not have the attitude that we are safe in the Lord because we have sacrificed our future and do not love the world. That is not adequate. (W.L., Practical Points Concerning Blending, ch. 5)

Los Angeles

Lord’s Day morning, February 19, we will blend by languages, English-speaking at Haskell, Spanish-speaking at Haskell (room 5), Korean-speaking at Hall 1, and Chinese-speaking at Hall 3.
“God has blended the body together” (1 Cor. 12:24). May we all come together through the cross (to be saved from our natural life and culture) and by the mingled Spirit (to minister Christ to one another) so that the whole church may enter the reality of God’s blending and be built together more.

FTTA Gospel Trips

The FTTA gospel trips all concluded in recent days. Reports and prayer requests from North America are posted at http://gtca.us/reports/ and http://wemigrate.org/updates/. The broad needs now are 1) for new people met during these trips to continue their desire for contact, 2) shepherds to contact them regularly, and 3) migrations to these new cities.
Reports, photos, and prayer requests from international destinations are at http://beseeching.org/ along with links to longer reports. The broad needs now are 1) strengthening of small localities, 2) growth of the many gospel seeds that were sown, 3) continued shepherding of open contacts, of newly saved and baptized people, and of those who came to homes.
