Holding the Head

“Holding the Head, out from whom all the Body, being richly supplied and knit together by means of the joints and sinews, grows with the growth of God.” (Col. 2:9) Lord, grant us to continually hold You as our Head that the church in Los Angeles may growth with the growth of God.

College Conference

Please pray for the first college conference this weekend, Nov. 7-9 in Big Bear. Mostly semester system schools will attend, including almost 60 from the USC area. Pray that:

  1. The students would be prepared inwardly to receive a fresh vision concerning the age of the jubilee;
  2. The atmosphere would be full of the release of the spirit;
  3. The enemy would be bound in relation to any frustrations that would keep students from coming to or enjoying the conference;
  4. The Lord would gain the real victory and every student would experience the blessings and freedom of the reality of the jubilee.

Bibles for America Southeast USA tour

On November 1, BfA began a three-week distribution tour across Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, and Florida. They will give away free copies of the New Testament Recovery Version and books by Witness Lee and Watchman Nee at college campuses and other venues in 13 cities.
Please pray for the Lord’s blessing on the coordination and preparation for this tour. Pray also that He would prepare His sons of peace to meet the participating saints and receive from them the supplying and nourishing materials available from BfA.

Europe

One-week trainings will be held in London beginning November 3, 10, and 24 on the general subject of “The Four Great Pillars in the Lord’s Recovery: Truth, Life, the Church, and the Gospel.” Attendees will include saints in the churches throughout Europe and also seeking ones contacted through the spread of the ministry publications and the campus work. Please pray for the perfecting of the saints and the gaining of the seeking ones for the Lord’s recovery in Europe.

London

Every Lord’s Day in November we have seminars at four locations in London. The topic is Changing Death into Life. May the Lord change much death into life. May a harvest be reaped throughout London for the Lord to gain in the largest city in Europe. (http://www.amanatrust.org.uk/novemberseminars)

Report from Baarlo, Netherlands

Last week at Kasteel de Berckt was the European Brothers’ Training (with 143 in attendance), followed by the International Blending Conference (with over 700 in attendance). The topic of the conference was The Divine Reality. The blending was wonderful beyond words. Along with saints from the Netherlands, there were saints from Sweden and Switzerland and graduates from FTTA and FTTL.
Prayer burdens presented in the conference:

  • Pray for 1000 European students to be gained in 2015.
  • Pray for 50 couples from the United States to migrate to Europe.

Switzerland

A blending time for all the saints in Switzerland will be held Lord’s Day, November 9 in Bern. Please pray for a growing reality of the Body through this gathering. Pray also for gaining of new Swiss couples and college students in the coming months, and for raising up of churches in Geneva and Zurich.
Also pray for brother Don, who is traveling in Europe and will be attending this gathering, that he would have safe travels and stay healthy and would enjoy the blending with the saints in Switzerland.
