International Chinese-speaking Conference

The conference is February 12 to 14 in Anaheim. Information is at http://www.icsc2016.org (Chinese) and http://www.icsc2016.org/en (English). There will be translation to English, Korean, Spanish, and Portuguese. Please pray that the Lord bring many saints from all languages and that He take more crucial steps in the advancement of His purpose during this gathering.

Life-Study Live in Hall 1

A Spanish-language Life-Study Live seminar will be held Saturday, March 5 in L.A. Hall 1. Those who listen to Life-Study of the Bible on the radio are invited. Please pray for the preparation for this seminar and for the preparation of many radio listeners to come.

Tennessee

Brother Dick Taylor will be traveling to Memphis for the annual Mid-South Conference from Saturday, February 14 to Lord’s Day, February 15, and for times of fellowship with brothers there. The topic will be “The Recovery of Christ as Everything in the Church.” Saints from the 5 localities in Tennessee and from nearby states are expected to attend. Please pray for a good time of blending and for everyone to be recovered to Christ.

FTTA-Middle Age Training

The spring term begins March 14 and applications should be in by February 23. Ask the Lord to bring 120 new and returning trainees for the whole term. Beseech Him to release everyone from outward hindrances, from financial limitations, from anxiety, and from frustrations by U.S. immigration.

Germany

Please pray:

  • That the Lord will continue to gain translators who will become our co-workers long term for the labor among the refugees;
  • That the local saints, together with those migrating to Germany, will continue and follow up the labor from the gospel trips with regular contact, shepherding, and opening of their homes;
  • That the enemy’s frustrations will be bound and that we will have favor with the refugee camp administrators and the refugees;
  • For the continuing labor of the seven follow-up gospel trips (February 14 to July 2).

In order to keep the saints informed and bring them into the burden of this move of the Lord, the overseeing brothers are posting reports on a public Facebook page “Germany Update” (http://facebook.com/germanyupdate). These reports present many encouraging matters, but (for security) do not contain names of the saints or new contacts. We hope these reports will encourage all the saints in the Lord’s recovery.

Ethiopia

Please pray:

  • For the release of visas for 5 saints from Ethiopia to attend the Full-Time Training in Pretoria, South Africa. Over the years, visas to South Africa have been difficult to obtain. The next term of the training begins later this month. Please pray that the Lord would open the way for these dear ones to go as soon as possible, and that the enemy’s stratagem would not succeed in keeping them from being trained.
  • For a meeting hall and property in Addis Ababa, especially one that would be most beneficial for the gospel near Addis Ababa University. Currently, around 300–350 saints meet in a rented facility.
  • For the city of Hawassa to be open to the gospel and that the enemy would have no ground there.

South Africa

Please pray:

  • For the Lord to gain another couple both in Nelspruit and Durban.
  • For the Lord to supply all the saints laboring on the University of Pretoria campus. Around 250 students signed up this past orientation week for the Bible study; there is a need for the proper shepherding to gain remaining fruit for the Lord’s move on this campus and in this country.

Budapest, Hungary

In answer to the prayers of the saints and the churches concerning the spreading of the Lord’s testimony in Europe, the first Lord’s table in Budapest will take place on March 13, 2016. Pray that the Lord will raise up a shining golden lampstand in Budapest for His testimony in Europe. The invitation letter and hotel reservation form is at http://www.churchinlosangeles.org/prayer/.

Argentina

Pray that a new generation of young people would be raised up in Argentina as age turners solely for God’s economy. The first Summer School of Truth held here will be February 10 to 14, and midway through this year two FTT Caacupé (Paraguay) trainees will come serve full-time in Argentina.
