Prayer and the Lord’s Move

“How much more will the Father who is from heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!” (Luke 11:13) We know from our experience with the Lord that often we have prayed properly and have prayed ourselves into God. As we remain in Him, we receive His riches, the riches that are embodied in His Spirit. When we receive the Holy Spirit as our life supply…we can feed ourselves, and we can also feed all those under our care. (Morning Revival, last paragraph of W2, D2)

FTTA Gospel Trip Reports

The European gospel trips ended late last week. All the trips will be complete by this Wednesday. The spring term at FTTL began this Monday and at FTTA next Monday. Here is a main focus of prayer for various places touched by the FTT teams. Links to daily reports are at http://beseeching.org.
All areas: may the college students and young people become vital companions and learn to function on their campuses.
North America: for people met by the team members to be connected with local saints for continued shepherding.
Europe, South America: may the young people and college students respond to the trainees’ testimonies and open to the Lord about attending an FTT.
UK: may all the saints, including students and new ones, rise up and be supplied to shepherd the multitude of Bible recipients.
India: that the Lord bountifully supply the saints standing for His testimony in Chandigarh (first Lord’s Table was February 10). Most have begun to face opposition, some very severe. As all the visiting saints leave, may they go in in the way of the small groups they have begun to practice, with much mutuality.
All areas: pray for fruit from every gospel tract that went out.

Bibles for America, New Book Offer

In March BfA will offer a free two-book set of The Normal Christian Life by Watchman Nee and The Economy of God by Witness Lee. Our desire is that more of God’s children would discover the riches in this ministry and advance in their Christian experience. Our desire is also that people will discover that the ministries of these two brothers are one in their revelation of Christ as life and the church as God’s purpose.
We pray that many people will enter into the revelation and practical experiences presented in these books. We can also encourage friends to sign up now at http://www.biblesforamerica.org/newbooks.html.
(The free offer is for people not meeting in the recovery. Those who are meeting can purchase the books or download The Economy of God for free at http://mass.ministrybooks.org/Welcome.aspx.)

Armenia

Through the past months many saints have given for the purchase of the properties in Yerevan (capital of Armenia). We acquired the first, then the second, then the third of these adjacent properties. Remodeling of the first has begun; when completed it will be a meeting place for the church in Yerevan. The second property has a few apartments. The third has parking spaces and a building that could be remodeled for a larger meeting place.
We are very grateful to the Lord that he has faithfully met the entire need in His Body. And we are also very thankful to all the saints who have contributed to this need, in the Lord. Praise and thank Him for doing above what we could ask or think!
