Jubilee in Los Angeles

We come to the Lord to enjoy Him so that we can be filled with Him and rest in Him. Then we work for Him, with Him, and in oneness with Him. Our desire in celebrating 50 years of church life in Los Angeles is more coming to Him through more prayer.
“These all continued steadfastly with one accord in prayer.” (Acts 1:14)
“Persevere in prayer, watching in it with thanksgiving.” (Col. 4:2)
Prayer topics for celebration of our jubilee are posted at http://www.churchinlosangeles.org/prayer. Our desire is that everyone would set aside some time weekly to pray, with a companion or in larger numbers, for these topics from now through the end of the year.

Junior High Conferences

This weekend, October 19-21, there will be a junior high brothers’ conference at L.A. hall 2 for all of Southern California. The same weekend a junior high sisters’ conference will be hosted by the church in Riverside. Please pray

  1. that every junior high brother and sister would touch the Lord in a personal way,
  2. that the speaking of the truth would be clear and would constitute the young people with Christ as their supply to live in this age,
  3. that all the serving ones from all the localities would serve in oneness and under the anointing Spirit for the building of the church,
  4. that the time in the homes, at the meal times, and in the activities would be under the Lord’s blessing and would be full of divine supply and mutuality.

Lord, release many to participate and to hear what the Spirit is speaking to the churches!

Bible Distribution at L.A. Korean Festival

We only had 760 Recovery Version New Testaments to distribute and gave all of them to people. We were surprised that the Korean people were so open. Among the recipients, 347 want to be contacted again. Please pray that all the recipients read the Bible, have their eyes opened, and get connected to the ministry. Please pray also for many saints to be active in calling the 347 recipients. And we may learn the Body and move in the Body and work in the way of Body.

Spanish-Speaking Perfecting

This Saturday, October 20, 4 to 9:30 pm in Anaheim will be a time of fellowship and perfecting for the Spanish-speaking saints in Southern California. This perfecting conference is open to all the saints. There will not be child care. Each attendant is responsible for their own meal between the two meetings.
Lord, bless this time with Your presence and with Your speaking.

Bibles for America on Campuses

Many BfA distributions were carried out on college campuses as classes resumed in August and September. On numerous campuses, students, full-time serving ones, and community saints are laboring to follow up with those who indicated they would like further contact. Please pray that:

  • The students who showed interest in further contact would remain open and willing to meet.
  • The Lord strengthen the saints to care for these students and nourish them with the Word and the ministry.
  • The threefold cord of students, families, and full-timers would be strengthened with much coordination and blending to gain a harvest from the sowing on these campuses.

Bible Recipients in Europe

Please pray:

  • That the Lord will supply the saints to carry out the large task of following-up the Recovery Version recipients in the United Kingdom, France, and Switzerland through phone calls, seminars, and personal visits.
  • That a good number of local people will be brought into the church life.
