“Out of the mouth of infants and sucklings You have perfected praise” Matt. 21:16

Lord’s Day, June 23rd, there will be an important time of fellowship for all Spanish-speaking saints and for anyone burdened for the Lord’s move among the Spanish-speaking community. This fellowship will be regarding the importance and preciousness of the children and young people. The meeting will be held at Hall 1 at 10:00 am, June 23rd, at 1743 W. Adams Blvd, Los Angeles 90018. Spanish speaking saints from Hall 1, Hall 2, Inglewood, Santa Monica, and Culver City are invited. The meeting will last until 1:00 pm.
Please pray that the Lord would care for all the children and young people and would raise up many as the praising “babes and sucklings” (Psa. 8:2) to silence the enemy and strengthen the Lord’s testimony of oneness in the Los Angeles area. Also pray that there would be a good continuation for the care of the children and young people after this fellowship.
For the saints awareness, it is helpful to know that 48% of the population in Los Angeles and approximately 72% of the Los Angeles Unified School district students (elementary and high schools) are from a Spanish-speaking background. This year was also the first year that students from a Spanish-speaking background comprised the largest number of applicants to the University of California education system. There will be Spanish translation for both the speaking and the outlines.
Ushers will be helping to give directions of where to park since about 170 people are expected to come. This time will be comprised of the Lord’s table, fellowship by brother Tom Goetz with some other brothers, a time for mutual sharing, and a love feast afterwards.
