December Semiannual Training

The December Semiannual Training is taking place this week in Anaheim and by webcast throughout Los Angeles. It is on the book of Deuteronomy, which unveils Christ as the Instructor and Leader of the people of God that they may be able to enter into the heavenly territory and participate in His riches. Please pray that the Lord would advance in His recovery by instructing and leading all the saints, infusing them with His up-to-date burden.

2020 GTCA Sowing Trips

In January and February 2020, sowing trips will take place in 12 cities throughout the United States and Canada as part of the ongoing burden to gospelize, truthize, and churchize North America. The cities selected for this year are aligned with the burden for the spread and increase of the recovery in middle America.
Trainees from the Full-Time Training in Anaheim will join local and visiting saints in giving away Bibles, ministry books, gospel tracts, and brochures. The 2020 GTCA cities include:

  • Midwest: Cincinnati, OH; Lexington, KY; Minneapolis, MN; St Louis, MO
  • Southeast: Charlotte, NC; Columbia, SC; Memphis, TN; Orlando, FL
  • Mid-Atlantic: Pittsburgh, PA; Richmond, VA
  • Canada: Airdrie, AB; London/Guelph, ON

Please pray for the coordination and preparation for the gospel trips and for all those participating in this special time of sowing. Pray also for the Spirit to sweep in the hearts of the people in every city to make them open to receive the ministry of the age.

European Winter School of Truth

From December 26 to 31, the Winter School of Truth will take place simultaneously in the UK, Netherlands, and Spain. Please pray that the Lord will gain this generation of young people in Europe for His testimony.

Germany – Report from Arabic Speakers Conference

We thank the Lord for His blessing on December 6 to 8, when saints from several countries, including Germany, Israel, Estonia, the US, and Ireland, all gathered with about 30 Arabic-speaking friends from various locations in Germany. We enjoyed messages on “Our Vision: Christ and the Church.”
One sister was baptized, and many testified that they had never heard such things. We were impressed with the genuine seeking among the people. Please pray that the word released would take root in our friends, and for their continued shepherding. Pray also for their contact and speaking with others, not only in Germany but in their home countries. Pray for the development of materials for their continued feeding and for the raising up of workers to assist in this labor.

Continuing Grace for Financial Needs

In the context of material giving, 2 Corinthians 9:8 says “God is able to make all grace abound unto you, that, in everything always having all sufficiency, you may abound unto every good work.” May we each open to the Lord to grace us for one or more of these on-going needs.
