Memorial Day Conference: The Need for a New Revival

Lord, work in each of us to cooperate with You for a new revival, a revival to bring You back!

FTTA

In recent years the total number of trainees in FTTA has hovered around 320, with the number of international trainees increasing and the number of domestic trainees decreasing. We need to ask the Lord to bring more domestic trainees and to bring more brothers to the fall term.

Vancouver, Canada

On May 7 there was a devastating fire at hall 1 of the church in Vancouver starting from where roofers were working to replace the roof. Fifty to sixty firemen were involved for about six hours. There is extensive damage and the whole building has become unusable. There was no loss of life or injury.
We are presently coordinating with the insurers, engineers and many others on the multitude of things that have to be done. Please pray to turn this apparent setback to our salvation through the bountiful supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ:

  • Above all that the Lord would gain the reality of the Body of Christ in all of us. Surely the Lord has some speaking through this environment.
  • That the temporary meeting arrangements would be the best possible for building up of the Body.
  • That the insurers would have agreement and come to the proper assessment.
  • That the City would be favorable to our needs and grant all necessary permits for reconstruction.
  • That the neighbors would be favorable to the facility we need to build. (During the fire and later many neighbors came out, and we were pleasantly surprised at their positive comments and support).

May we see His considerations when our circumstances are smooth, and may we realize His special visitation when our circumstances are difficult. He wants to lead us to walk on a way that is more difficult but also deeper, a way that often is beyond our understanding. (WL, God’s Need and God’s Goal – p.46)

One-Week Trainings in Europe

Four one-week trainings are being held at Bower House in London. The last two are this week and next. The overall theme is The Four Great Pillars in the Lord’s Recovery: Truth, Life, the Church, and the Gospel. Attendees will spend some time with FTT London and with the brothers and sisters in the church in London or surrounding churches.
Please pray for the attendance of the saints from all over Europe, for the gaining of the new ones, and for perfecting in practicing the vital groups, spreading the divine truths, being fruit-bearing branches in the vine, and developing our function for the building up of the church.

German-Speaking Conference

The churches in the German-speaking countries will have a conference May 23 to 25 in Frankfurt. Over 300 are registered. The general subject will be “The Vision and Experience of Christ in His Resurrection and Ascension” (Thanksgiving Conference 2014). The messages will be spoken in German with Russian, English, and Chinese translation. We expect a rich feast and the Lord’s blessing in the fellowship and blending among all the saints attending.
Please pray for the release of all the saints in these countries to come and be under the Lord’s present speaking and be further blended together. May the Lord recover the German-speaking countries in 2015.

Nepal (from a letter written May 7 by full-timers from India who visited Nepal)

We praise and thank the Lord that He preserved all the saints in Nepal including their property. There has been very little damage to the saints.
The saints realize that the Lord preserved them for His purpose to be fulfilled in Nepal. Overall the entire Nepal is in agony. Saints have stronger realization that this is the time for the gospel. We need to pray for the Lord’s intensified move in Nepal.
