More Perfecting, More Ministering, More Building

“He Himself gave some…for the perfecting of the saints unto the work of the ministry, unto the building up of the Body of Christ, until we all arrive…” (Eph. 4:11-13) The more we arrive at God’s goal, the more God is expressed and represented on earth, and the more Satan loses ground on earth.

Bibles for America

BfA began offering the free set of The Normal Christian Life by WN and The Economy of God by WL in early May. By the end of May, nearly 7,000 sets had been ordered. Last week BfA sent e-mail offers for the new set to approximately 145,000 users of top Christian websites. Please pray that many people would order these life-changing books, benefit from the rich ministry in them, and share the free offer with others.

A Report from France

The Lord’s blessing was obvious at the April conference in Paris. At least 240 attended, 140 of whom were from 12 different cities in France. This is a 20 percent increase from last year.
Many new ones being shepherded by the campus team and by the saints in several localities came, including a good number of young, college-aged saints. The atmosphere was marvelous—full of the exercise of the spirit and the responses from the saints were overwhelming. We had to limit each one to 30 seconds so that many could have a chance to speak. The six FTTL trainees from France were a real strengthening factor to this time, and some of them became translators during the sharing time.
Please pray that:

  • the Lord continue to sow the seed of the ministry publications and the Recovery Version so that the Francophone world can be “filled with the knowledge of Jehovah / As water covers the sea” (Isa. 11:9);
  • the saints in the smaller localities in France will continue to stand for the Lord and gain the increase;
  • the Lord of the harvest thrust out more workers to reap the fields among the native French people.
