The Sacrifice of Praise

“I will declare Your name to My brothers; in the midst of the church I will sing hymns of praise to You.” (Heb. 2:12; Psa. 22:22)
“Through Him then let us offer up a sacrifice of praise continually to God, that is, the fruit of lips confessing His name.” (Heb. 13:15)
In the church we should offer up through Christ a sacrifice of praise to God continually. In the church He sings in us hymns of praise unto God the Father (2:12). In the church we too should praise God the Father through Him. Eventually, in the church He and we, we and He, praise the Father together in the mingled spirit. He, as the life-giving Spirit, praises the Father in our spirit, and we, by our spirit, praise the Father in His Spirit. This is the best and highest sacrifice that we can offer to God through Him. This is greatly needed in the church meetings. (Heb. 13:15, footnote 1)

Summer Training

The Summer Training is July 2 to 7 in Anaheim as well as through webcasts in many localities. Ask the Lord to prepare the speaking brothers during their labor on the messages. Also ask the Lord to prepare all who have registered to attend, to be good listeners and absorbers of the word, and to fully participate in the morning digestion times. Lord, make us willing and ready to be further trained to live a holy, clean and rejoicing living!

FTTA Graduation

The graduation will be this Saturday, June 30, 9:30 am in Anaheim. This term 132 trainees will graduate. Please pray for their faithful going on with the Lord outside the training environment, the willingness of many to serve full-time, and their blending into the church life wherever they go.
Let us also ask the Lord to operate in the hearts and situations of many more young brothers and sisters to apply for the Fall 2018 term, which will begin on August 12. The deadline for U.S. applications is July 10.

BfA in Anchorage, Alaska

Since June 9, Bibles for America volunteers have been distributing literature in downtown Anchorage at the Saturday Market & Festival, a popular destination among locals and tourists from around the world. This weekend, from June 30 to July 1, distribution will take place at the Air Show at the Elmendorf Air Force Base, which attracts thousands of Alaskans and military personnel.
Please pray for the volunteers as they labor through the summer. Pray that the Bibles and books would get into the hands of the hungry ones, and for each recipient to be enlightened and nourished by the Word of God.

Bibles for the Earth

BfA has placed an order for 100,000 Bibles to replenish our inventory. Please ask the Lord to supply the necessary offerings for this large order.
Also petition the Lord to bless the 4,000 Bibles going out each month through the Bibles for Europe website, http://www.biblesforeurope.org.
And pray for distributions by Bibles for Canada, Bibles for Australia, and Bibles for New Zealand.

Germany

Last October over 30,000 Recovery Version NTs were distributed in Germany. Thousands more have been distributed since then. These distributions emphasized a broad spreading of the Recovery Version. There was no effort to get contact information from the recipients because the vast majority of Germans are hesitant to give out personal information. We can overcome this hesitation by praying that the recipients read their NTs with outlines and footnotes, that they receive life and light, and that this would motivate them to contact the recovery.

Myanmar

Pray for the printing and delivery of 10,000 copies of the Burmese Holy Bible Recovery Version.
