The God of Abraham, The God of Isaac, and The God of Jacob

We need to know and experience the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob to become the transformed Israel of God to fulfill God’s purpose. May we advance in the experiences of this wonderful Triune God by leaving everything behind and coming forward in spirit to the Holy of Holies. May 2014 be a year of more constituting with Christ, more growing up into Him in everything, and more advancing to maturity.

Australia

James Lee and Craig Birchler are in Australia. The national conference, on the Mending Ministry of Life, is the last few days of 2013. At the same time there is a summer school of truth for the young people. The attendance is 565 adults and young people. After the conference there is a fellowship for leading brothers from all of Australia. Afterwards James and Craig will visit various churches all over Australia.

Philippines

In the first half of January a small team of FTTA trainees will visit the devastated area of the Philippines to encourage the saints there and to coordinate with them in preaching the gospel. A second team will visit the same area in the first half of February.

European Young People’s Winter School of Truth

The school is December 26 to 31 in Netherlands and December 27 to January 1 in London. Ask the Lord to keep active in the young people what was imparted to them during the school and to fully gain the young people for His move in all of Europe.

Spain

Barcelona is Spain’s second largest city. It is a leading tourist, financial, cultural, educational, and sports centers. The local language is Catalan, but Spanish is widely spoken. There is a small lampstand in Barcelona, but the saints there do not speak either language, making the propagation difficult.
The Lord is moving in a marvelous way in Girona, a city about 50 miles north of Barcelona. There is a small lampstand there, but for several years there was no increase because the saints are not locals. Through a Catalan brother who received Rhema books last year, the Lord raised up an entire Catalan family. The saints in Girona have been shepherding them faithfully, but they are very short-handed. The new ones are all enjoying the ministry, and several of them attended recent conferences.
A few months ago the Lord brought to Barcelona a couple from the U.S., who are very burdened for the situation there and are co-laboring with the brothers in Girona to take care of the whole of northeast of Spain. However, although the harvest is ripe, the laborers are few. How we need to pray that the Lord will thrust out workers into His harvest!
