Lord, Build in Us

Christ builds the church as the temple of God through the believers’ growth in life and their being joined together in the divine life. (Thanksgiving conference, msg 5, III.)
“In whom all the building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord; in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in spirit.” (Eph. 2:21-22)

Middle-Age Training

The middle-age full-time training begins next Monday. Let us pray to 1) bind all frustrations to attendance such as health, personal obligations, and entry into the U.S., and 2) release to the trainees much divine life and much salvation from their natural being.
The Spanish and Korean language sections each have very few trainees. Petition the Lord to increase these sections to ten trainees each. Only three from Los Angeles are registered for this term; petition the Lord for more to register this week.

Life-Study Live in Hall 1

Saturday we enjoyed hosting the Life-Study of the Bible Live in Hall 1. Brothers unveiled Leviticus 1:1-5 to all the participants, and we saw how we are identified with the burnt offerings. Leviticus 1:4, footnote 1, “….By laying our hands on Christ as our offering, we are joined to Him, and He and we become one. In such a union all our weaknesses, defects, and faults are taken on by Him, and all His virtues become ours. This requires us to exercise our spirit through the proper prayer so that we may be one with Him in an experiential way.”
We received around 130 saints in total; about 50 of them are radio listeners and 23 of them returned their card expressing their desire to be contacted for further study of the Bible. We thank the Lord for His blessing. We pray for the shepherding of these seeking ones, that they can be nourished and receive care for growing in His life.

Germany

The second follow-up gospel trip began Lord’s Day, March 6. Two L.A. saints are participating. Lord, send more from L.A. (Four more follow-up trips are open; deadlines to apply are March 20, April 10, May 1, and May 22; information is at http://germany2016.amanatrust.org.uk.)
Please pray for:

  • the Lord of the harvest to thrust out more workers into the harvest in Germany;
  • the continuing contact and shepherding of the refugees to bring them to salvation and the church life;
  • the Lord to bring native Germans into the reality of His Body;
  • the Lord to raise up more translators for this work, and to fully gain the current translators.

Africa

Brother Dick Taylor is in South Africa this week to teach at the Full-time Training in Pretoria, followed by a weekend conference for all the saints. Please pray for the Lord to have His unhindered way in all the trainees this term as well as in all the churches in South Africa.

Budapest, Hungary

The first Lord’s table will take place Lord’s Day, March 13. Pray that the Lord will raise up a shining golden lampstand in Budapest for His testimony in Europe.

Turkey

Our local printer promised to finish the binding of the 22 booklets of W. Nee and the booklets will be ready the first week of March. The next book which is going to be published is How to Study the Bible. We have sent the draft for final editing and hopefully the book can be published in April. Please pray for the publication of the ministry books. We continue to use the local distributor to help distribute 5000 copies of Rhema set 1 to the Christian individuals and groups in this country this year. May the Lord gain more seeking ones through His word.
