A Practical Living in Oneness with the Lord

As a result of responding to the Lord’s appearing, calling, and speaking, Abraham grew into a practical living in oneness with the Lord. In this living Abraham walked in the Lord’s presence and whatever he did was according to God’s will for the fulfilling of God’s purpose. Lord, grant us one day’s growth every day of this year, and draw us to be people living in Your presence.

Los Angeles, 2014

Beseech the Lord to bring us into a gospel atmosphere full of life, love, and fruit-bearing (John 15:17 & note) and to send us out to visit and nourish relatives, students, friends, neighborhoods, and work places and to recover dormant and backslidden saints so that His testimony here may increase significantly this year.

United States

“I exhort therefore, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings be made on behalf of all men; on behalf of kings and all who are in high position, that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all godliness and gravity. This is good and acceptable in the sight of our Savior God, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the full knowledge of the truth.” (1 Tim. 2:1-4)
Lord, reign over the United States and its leaders so that many more people may be saved, many more may come to the full knowledge of the truth, and many more lampstands may be established.


In the first half of January a small team of FTTA trainees is visiting 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.

FTTA Gospel Trips

International gospel trips (other than the trip to the Philippines) will begin next week and domestic trips will begin the week after that. Ask the Lord to supply wisdom to the travelers in their preparations and to richly grace them all so that they may overflow with Him wherever they go.
