Winter Training

“Brothers, I do not account of myself to have laid hold; but one thing I do: Forgetting the things which are behind and stretching forward to the things which are before, I pursue toward the goal for the prize to which God in Christ Jesus has called me upward.” (Phil 3:13-14)
May this be our attitude in Anaheim and in video trainings.

College Age Fan into Flame

We would like to announce to all the churches in Southern California that there will be a time specifically for the college age to incite one another and pray for one another immediately following this Winter Training. This will be Lord’s Day, December 28, 4 to 6 pm in Irvine. Please note that it may not be the best to invite students who are brand new to the church life.

Bibles for America

Please pray for the thousands of people who received a copy of the New Testament Recovery Version and books by Watchman Nee and Witness Lee from BfA this year. Pray that as they read, the Lord would operate in their hearts and environments to save them and to bring them to the full knowledge of the truth.

European Winter School of Truth

We are so thankful to the Lord for a further step in the Lord’s move to gain a group of constituted young people in Europe. We have been carrying out the Winter School of Truth in London since 2004 and in the Netherlands since 2012. This year for the first time there will be a third location in Spain. The dates are December 27 to January 1 in London and January 26 to 31 in the Netherlands and Spain.
All three locations will have one class for ages 11 to 14 and another class for ages 15 to 18. All classes will cover Young People’s Lesson Book 6, The Bible, The Word of God. May the Lord use this Truth school to bless His move with the young people in all of Europe and may each of the young people touch life in the word through pray-reading.

Utrecht, The Netherlands

Saints first migrated to Utrecht in July 2010. Since then, additional migrations occurred, together with ongoing labor to find and shepherd the seeking believers within the city. The first Lord’s table was held in Utrecht on 14 December. Please pray for a strong continuation of the church life and for the building up of a golden lampstand in Utrecht.

Portugal

An encouraging report from the recent conference and Bible distribution is at http://www.churchinlosangeles.org/prayer. Please pray that:

  • the Lord will strengthen, supply, and add to the saints in Lisbon so that the 53 new contacts (and the existing contacts) can be reached as soon as possible;
  • the Lord will bind His enemy from stealing the joy that these new Bible recipients have received;
  • the saints who attended the conference will digest the word that was spoken and dive into all the truths that were release for their supply, enjoyment, and experience;
  • more saints will be burdened to migrate to Lisbon, and that the Lord will open a way so that those who are burdened can move there soon for the raising up of a lampstand in Lisbon.
