God’s Recovery by Life

“I will bring them out from the peoples and gather them from the countries and bring them into their own land, and I will feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the streams and in all the inhabited places of the land. I will feed them with good pasture.” (Ezek. 34:13-14a)
As the Shepherd, the Lord will gather His people, His sheep, out of the nations and bring them back to the land of Canaan, which typifies the all-inclusive Christ as the allotted portion of God’s people, to dwell on the high mountains, signifying the resurrected and ascended Christ. The streams here signify the life-giving Spirit as the living water, who is given to us by God as our spiritual drink, and the rich pasture signifies Christ as the feeding place for God’s people. (Ezek. 34:13, notes 1 and 2)
Lord, bring us onward into more 1) being brought out, gathered, and brought into; 2) experiencing Your resurrection and ascension; and 3) drinking the Spirit and feeding on You!
Lord, also bring many more unbelievers and seeking believers out, gather them, and bring them into Yourself as their all-inclusive portion!

Summer School (Restaurant) of Truth (SSoT)

The Summer School of Truth is a time that gives life to the young people in the form of God’s word as “food.” This summer, from July 21-29, is indeed an appointed time to minister Christ as life and life-supply to those who are entering 7th to 12th grades. We ask the Lord that as many young people as possible in L.A. could attend. We believe this SSoT will be special and have various new elements that enable the young people to minister to one another and face the degraded age together. We hope all the young people would sign up here: http://<http://www.churchinlosangeles.org/ssot/.
Please pray: 1) that the young people would, through an atmosphere of love, care and genuine concern for them, open the three layers of their being to the Lord – their mouth, their heart and their spirit; 2) that the young people will all have positive companions in the Lord; 3) that the Lord would give light to the serving ones on how to conduct the SSoT in a way that is timely, relevant, and “sweet as honey” to the young people; 4) that every young person would receive a personal appearing from the Lord such that the young people would say “Dearest Lord, my flask of alabaster, gladly now in love I break for Thee.”

BfA Bible Seminar in L.A.

This Saturday, June 24th, there will be a Bible Seminar in Koreatown for Korean-speaking unbelievers and for believers who are in denominations. The subject of the seminar is ‘How can I believe God when I can’t see and contact Him?’ We will use the marvelous footnotes and cross references in the Recovery Version Bible to emphasize that the tripartite man is able to see and contact God with his human spirit (1 Cor. 2:9). Please pray that this will be the turning point and stepping stone to the church life for all the visitors. Also, pray that all Korean-speaking saints can participate in this seminar in one accord and function as members of the Body of Christ.

Emigration Training

“The harvest is great, but the workers few; therefore, beseech the Lord of the harvest that He would thrust out workers into His harvest” (Luke 10:2). Pray for the thrusting out of burdened saints for the practical strengthening and building up of the churches in six key cities in Germany and for the labor on the college campuses.
The emigration training in Anaheim will be July 12 to August 4. This is for those who are burdened for the Lord’s move in Europe, especially in Germany.
Craig and Henna Hall from L.A. hall 2 will participate in this training and then depart with their children to Germany on August 8.

FTTA

The fall term begins mid August. The brothers overseeing the training have a goal of 160 new trainees for this term, 80 brothers and 80 sisters. Lord, move in many recent college graduates and fill up this number. Bring them to the training to build them in life, equip them with the truth, and cultivate their spiritual capacities.

Germany

  1. This year’s sixth trip to Germany for campus gospel labor and refugee shepherding and perfecting is June 17 to July 22. Lord, bless this labor for the increase and building up of Your Body. Fill the co-workers in Europe with wisdom concerning how to continue this labor in the second half of this year.
  2. During the May 24 to 28 German Protestant Kirchentag part of the 500th-year celebration of the Reformation, 4,795 New Testaments (4,655 in German, 140 in English) were distributed to recipients from at least 95 German cities and towns. Please pray for the prompt follow-up, that the Lord would gain at least 100 solid, seeking remaining fruits, and for the planting of “church trees” as golden lampstands all over Germany. A one-page Kirchentag report is at http://www.churchinlosangeles.org/prayer/.
