Joined to God’s Desire through the Word

Daniel read God’s Word regularly. As soon as he touched God’s desire through the Word, he immediately joined himself to that desire. Whenever we find out God’s desire from His Word, we must immediately join ourselves to that desire, by opening to the Lord, seeking the Lord, dealing with separations from the Lord, humbling ourselves, and exercising our spirit to pray over and with the Word. (training message 2, III.A-B.)

Video Trainings

Video trainings continue and, due to need for translating, some in other nations have not yet started. Lord, may every video training turn us again to Your desire and Your purpose. Make us overcomers for Your building.


Dick Taylor and James Lee are visiting churches throughout Australia. Monday to Wednesday they are in Melbourne. Wednesday to Friday Dick is in Tasmania; Friday to next week Monday he is in Perth. Lord, bless the churches in Australia with more revelation and more experiences of Yourself for the turning of the age.

Southern California Spanish-Speaking Conference

The conference will be January 18 to 20 in Anaheim. These days are for the seeking of the Lord’s blessing through fellowship on His up-to date speaking and present burden. The messages will be given in English with simultaneous translation into Spanish and the meetings are open to all the saints. On the Lord’s Day, we will conclude the conference with an overflow and blending time in the nearby churches. At the same time, we will have a Young People’s Conference and meetings for the children. The invitation (English & español) is at http://www.churchinlosangeles.org/prayer.

Teams of saints will go to cities in North America, South America, Europe, South Africa, and India. The trips will be 14 to 17 days long starting the last week in January. Ask the Lord to prepare team members through prayer, His word, and their consecration.

New Testament Distribution and Follow-up in Europe

Since May 2012 70,000 New Testaments have been distributed in the UK and over 2500 French New Testaments in Belgium, France, and Switzerland. In addition, there have been distributions of German New Testaments in Germany and Switzerland, and English New Testaments in Ireland, Italy, and the Netherlands. There is a great openness for further contact everywhere. Distribution in Spanish began December 2012, and distribution in Portuguese will be conducted in early spring. We expect further distribution in English in many European countries since so many Europeans can also read English very well. May the Lord bless the follow-up of so many who are waiting for contact.
