Los Angeles

Pray for the Lord’s move in the personal universe of each of our households. Especially pray for His move through our children. “Behold, children are the heritage of Jehovah, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a mighty man, so are the children of one’s youth.” (Psalm 127:3-4) May the Lord use our children as seeds of the gospel to reach the families of their friends. May every home be a warm, attractive place for these friends and their families.

Idaho, Utah, Wyoming

The churches in Idaho, Utah, and Wyoming are having a blending conference April 26 to 28. They will use the time to continue their fellowship in Raising Up the Next Generation For the Church Life.

South Africa

  • Bill Lawson, a co-worker from Connecticut, is at FTTP this week and next. Bill came to the recovery as a UCLA student, so he is another link between L.A. and Africa. Lord, bless the training in Pretoria!
  • Forty from Ethiopia are ready to join FTTP next term, but the training might not have the capacity for them. Pray for the Lord’s practical guidance for development of the training in Pretoria.

Ethiopia

  • LSM sent 24,000 lbs of books to Ethiopia. These are “used books” but many are in good condition. May the Lord bless the distribution of these books and attract many people to Himself.
  • Lord, send some from L.A. to Ethiopia for the conference July 26 to 28. See http://www.ibc2013.org.

Malta

The Republic of Malta is a small island country south of Italy in the Mediterranean Sea. There is no lampstand here, where the apostle Paul stayed for three months on his journey to Rome (Acts 28:1-10). A brother has visited Malta twice and has made some contacts among students. Please pray for the spread of the Lord’s testimony to that country.

France

There will be a conference in Paris April 27 to 28.

Asia

Praise the Lord for a time of prayer and fellowship for the building up of the Body of Christ in the Lord’s move to Asia. This will be April 23-25 in Yangon, Myanmar. It is hoped that through this time of blending, all the churches in Asia will be brought into one accord in the fellowship of the Body of Christ for the spread of the kingdom gospel in Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Laos, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Saudi Arabia and adjacent Arab countries, and some other countries in Asia. We are burdened that the Lord’s propagation and testimony will reach throughout the whole inhabited earth and that church trees will be planted for the establishment of the kingdom of God.
