The Exercise of Our Priesthood

“You yourselves also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house into a holy priesthood to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ” (1 Pet. 2:5).
“Today in the Lord’s recovery the greatest need, the primary need, is to gain the increase. A house cannot be built without materials. We need to save sinners through the preaching of the gospel that they may become material for the building up of the church as the house of God (1 Tim. 3:15)” (Fellowship concerning the Urgent Need of the Vital Groups, p. 182).
For the increase in the church in Los Angeles, there is a need for all of us to be priests. Pray for all the saints to exercise their priesthood in the following ways:

  1. Coming to the Lord and spending time with Him.
  2. Praying with a companion for the Lord’s purpose on this earth.
  3. Practicing the God-ordained way of begetting, nourishing, perfecting, and prophesying (building).

Junior High Conferences

The Southern California junior high conferences are October 22–23 in Fullerton (brothers) and Diamond Bar (sisters).

Spanish-Speaking Conference

On Saturday, October 22 in Anaheim, there will be a special time of fellowship and perfecting for the Spanish-speaking saints in Southern California. This conference is open to all the saints in the churches
and there is no need for registration or donations. Child care will not be provided.
4:00–6:00 pm First Meeting
6:00–7:00 pm Dinner Break (bring your own food and water)
7:00–9:00 pm Second Meeting
May the Lord bless this special time with His presence and speaking. Pray for many saints to attend and for the word of God which they will hear to operate in them (1 Thes. 2:13).

Bibles for America

Each month, approximately 4,000 Bibles and 16,000 Christian books are ordered through the Bibles for America website. We praise the Lord that so many have taken the opportunity to discover the riches in the Word and the ministry. Please pray that many people would continue to discover the BfA website and order the free New Testament Recovery Version and ministry books. Please also pray that those who have already ordered would open up their books and receive the supply of light and life in the Word.

European Brothers’ Training and Blending Conference

Brothers from the churches in Europe will gather in Baarlo, Netherlands for a three-day training (October 18–20). The messages will be a repeat of the most recent ITERO, October 6-8, in Australia. Our
goal is that the Lord will make us all able ministers of the New Testament, effective building material for the universal Body of Christ, and good stewards and serving ones in our respective local churches.
Following this training, saints from all over Europe will gather at the same location for an international blending conference (October 21–23). Lord, gather many saints for more constituting with
Your truth, more infusion of life, more vision of Your move in Europe, and more blending.
Pray “that the word of the Lord may run and be glorified” (2 Thes. 3:1). Also pray that the burden of the Lord’s speaking in the fall ITERO will be imparted into the leading brothers in Europe and that the saints in Europe will be further blended together in the Lord’s up-to-date speaking in the conference.

Krakow, Poland

There has long been a burden to raise up a lampstand in Krakow, a major educational and cultural center and the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland. By the end of October, six full-timers who previously served in the UK will relocate to Krakow and will begin to serve there. For many years the saints in Poland have been praying for Krakow, and in the past several years groups of saints have gone there on a regular basis to distribute free ministry literature, including the English New Testament Recovery Version. Please pray:

  • That suitable housing will be found for all the full-timers;
  • That all the full-timers will be blended together in prayer and fellowship to serve in one accord;
  • That the labor of the full-timers, in coordination with the local saints in Krakow, will be under the Lord’s blessing and will be fruitful in bringing local seeking ones and students into the church life;
  • That a golden lampstand will be raised up as the testimony of Jesus in Krakow.
