Wars, Earthquakes, the Gospel

In Matthew 24:6-7 the Lord tells us, “You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars….and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.” These events are related to the gospel (v. 14). The Lord tells us, “See that you are not alarmed” but unsaved people will be alarmed. Their alarm should open them to the gospel. This month there are rumors of war in Ukraine, several magnitude 6+ earthquakes in the Pacific, a missing passenger airplane in Asia, and other unsettling events. Lord, use all of these events for the gospel; save people into Your kingdom.

FTTA Relocation

Since the inception of FTTA 25 years ago, the Lord’s rich blessing has been evident. Many who attended FTTA have been greatly benefited in life, in truth, and in cultivation of spiritual capacity. Today 3,737 trainees have completed at least one term, and 2,334 have completed the entire two years.
In the last few years, FTTA has faced an on-going overcrowding problem. The current training facility is inadequate. Furthermore, as the number of young people in the Lord’s recovery increases, we anticipate increased enrollment in the coming years. To provide the facilities to adequately raise up our young people to be proper and useful vessels, the training will move to buildings 7 and 8 on the LSM campus. Letters in English, Chinese, and Spanish with more information about this relocation is at http://www.churchinlosangeles.org/prayer. Donations may be given to the church, designated for “FTTA Training Center.”
Let us pray for 1) wisdom to those taking care of the relocation, 2) a sufficient financial supply for the relocation, and 3) increasing enrollment every term.

High School Conferences

The Southern California high school brothers and sisters conferences are March 21 to 23.

Southeast Blending Conference

The annual Southeast Blending Conference will be March 28–30 in Atlanta, Georgia. This year, the saints in this region wish to invite recent BfA Bible and book recipients to attend the conference. Nearly 20,000 people from Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Alabama have ordered free materials from BfA within the last year and will receive an invitation e-mail. Please pray that the Lord would work in these recipients who have tasted the ministry. Pray that He would draw His seekers to the conference and lead them into further contact with the saints and further experience of the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.

Lord’s Move in Europe

Michael Stewart left South Africa and arrived in London last Saturday. He will stay for 12 days, with most of his time in London and a few days in Dublin, Ireland to visit the church and his family. His intention for this trip is to continue blending with the brothers in London before his move to London this summer. Upon moving, he will bear some responsibility for the Lord’s move in Europe. Please pray for his blending with the brothers there and for the Lord’s arrangement of the details of his move, including finding the best housing for the family.
