We Take Christ Daily to Experience Christ Daily

We need to take Christ as our burnt offering daily so that we may experience Christ in His experiences as the burnt offering, not imitating Christ outwardly but living Him as our daily life. By such a union, Christ becomes one with us and lives in us, repeating in us the life that He lived on earth, the life of the burnt offering. (Crystallization-Study of Leviticus, msg. 2, IV, III.B)
“The fire on the altar shall be kept burning on it; it must not go out. And the priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and he shall lay the burnt offering in order upon it and shall burn the fat of the peace offerings on it.” (Lev. 6:12)
“The love of Christ constrains us because we have judged this, that One died for all, therefore all died; and He died for all that those who live may no longer live to themselves but to Him who died for them and has been raised.” (2 Cor. 5:14-15)

ITERO

The International Training for Elders and Responsible Ones is April 13 to 15 in Anaheim. Let us beseech the Lord that through this training, the Lord will make all the brothers able ministers of the New Testament, effective building material for the universal building up of the Body of Christ, and good stewards and serving ones in our respective local churches. May the Lord also build His Body through the blending of brothers from the whole earth and the serving of all the FTTA trainees.
Ninety-one brothers from L.A. are registered. Pray that there be no hindrance to our attendance.

GTCA City Near California – Reno, NV

GTCA is the carrying out of the burden to gospelize, truthize, and churchize America. This is a long-term labor to build up the Body of Christ. In past weeks we mentioned the four 2018 target cities in California.
The Lord has been gathering seekers in the Reno area for a number of years to meet as His testimony. Currently, the church life in Reno consists of 41 saints. There are also numerous community and student contacts. Weekly meetings include the Lord’s Table and prophesying meeting, a prayer meeting, and a Friday night meeting at the campus house, 1.4 miles from University of Nevada, Reno.
Pray for continued shepherding contacts with those who received New Testaments during the FTTA gospel trip and for a continuing gospel atmosphere among all the saints.

Germany

Please continue to pray for the spreading of the Lord’s testimony throughout Germany. Besides the churches currently in Germany, there are seekers in many other cities. In some of these cities there is a weekly campus Bible study. Ask the Lord to supply the saints bountifully in traveling to and shepherding all of these believers and to gradually burden some experienced in the church life to migrate for the raising up of local churches in Aachen, Bielefeld, Bochum, Cologne, Darmstadt, Dresden, Freiburg, Giessen, Hamburg, Heidelberg, Karlsruhe, Kassel, Leipzig, Limburg, Mainz, Munich, and Tübingen.
Also pray for continued grace to all who are studying the German language.

The Church in Islamabad, Pakistan

Our first stay-in Youth Training was March 22 to 24. The subject was “The Need to Become Age-Turners.” The 20 young people were very pleased with the messages, the fellowship among themselves, and the outing at a park; they did not want to go back home. One young brother got baptized. Some of these young people attend and participate in multiple meetings per week. We are so excited to report how the Lord has been working in, through, and out of the lives of these young people!
Our gospel preaching is corporate. District 1 and 2 saints go to their own communities Tuesdays and Wednesdays to preach the gospel. On Thursdays, many District 1 saints go to the community where there’s a possibility to establish another district. On Fridays both districts’ saints go to another community. Many regular home meetings have been established in these communities and new families are being contacted.
Please pray that:

  • the saints would continue to grow in life, especially the youth who just attended the training;
  • the number of saints in each locality would grow;
  • the Lord would raise up brothers who have a burden to establish a third district;
  • for the release of visas for two saints who desire to attend FTT in the Philippines.
