FTTA Gospel Trips – Worldwide

The gospel trips are in progress this week in the U.S., Asia, Europe, South America, and South Africa. Colossians 1:5b-6: “the word of the truth of the gospel, which has come to you, even as it is also in all the world, bearing fruit and growing, as also in you, since the day you heard and knew the grace of God in truth.” Please pray that

  • There will be a sweet coordination and blending of the trainees with the local saints,
  • The gospel will be prevailing and the truth will be announced to many seeking ones,
  • The trainees will experience the full-time life and service outside the training center,
  • The trainees will be broadened in their view of the Lord’s move and need on the earth,
  • Many young saints will be encouraged to attend FTTs as a result of trainees’ testimonies.

FTTA Gospel Trips – United States

A six minute video report from Boston is at http://gtca.us/videos/hfkQgujnXQA.
In San Luis Obispo seven new students continue to be faithful in one-on-one times. This connects us to them both humanly and spiritually and helps cement us to them in a vital relationship. Last Saturday we had a marvelous meeting with with six of our new ones attending; we also had six FTTA trainees with us and the combination of the two was igniting! The singing was electrified and the sharing from the FTTA trainees was inspiring! Continue to pray for our 11 students, that the Lord would not lose one! Some of the new ones, especially the freshman, can be attracted by so many other groups as they can offer more activities and more young people but we pray that they would seek for the heart’s desire of our God and that they would not go according to the outward but according to the speaking of the Lord within. “O Lord keep them in Your Name and in Your Word!”

Downtown Joint High School Gathering

This Saturday, February 4th, we will have a joint gathering of high school Bible clubs from West Adams High, L.A. High and Virgil Middle School. During this gathering we will have activities, lunch, singing and reports from the students as well as speaking from one of our USC Christian students on Matthew 13 regarding having a proper heart to receive the word of God!
Please pray that the Lord would open up the schedules of the students and release the permission from parents so that many can attend this time. Also that there would be an atmosphere and a clear speaking that would touch the hearts of all of the young people. Lastly that the Lord would give the young people a view that they are not alone but that there any many other young people across L.A. who are taking a stand for the Lord in their high schools.

Rhema in Europe

More than 400,000 copies of Rhema free literature sets 1 through 3 have been distributed in Western and Central Europe. Of this number, 25% have been distributed in Romania, and another 36% have been distributed in the UK and Poland combined. Many positive testimonies have been received from the readers concerning the impact of the ministry on their understanding of God’s Word and on their Christian lives. It is more than clear that the riches of the truth and the life supply are in the Lord’s recovery. Please pray that the Lord will have mercy on many of the readers and shepherd them through the local saints into the church life.

Vienna, Austria
