The Heading Up of All Things

God’s economy of the fullness of the times is to head up all things in Christ. Today the entire creation is groaning in vanity and the slavery of corruption (Rom. 8:20-22). For creation to be released, we, the Body of Christ, need to be the first to be headed up by Christ. We participate in this heading up by receiving Christ’s transmission to the church, by loving Him with the first love, by growing in life, and by living in the light.

Junior High Conferences

The junior high conferences are October 24 to 26, brothers in Diamond Bar, sisters in Riverside. Please pray that the Lord prepare the hearts of the young people for this special time. We hope that during the conference each of the young people would be helped to experience Christ as life and be built up with companions. May the Lord gain them as gospel seeds that are full of life in their homes, among their friends, and at their schools.

Los Angeles Joint College Meeting

This dinner and meeting will be 6 to 8:30 pm Saturday, October 25, on the UCLA campus at the LA Tennis Center clubhouse. Try to find parking on nearby streets. We hope that this time will be a mutual encouragement among the campuses by seeing each other and by enjoying the Lord together.

Southern California Blending Conference

The Southern California Blending Conference will be Saturday, November 15, 4 to 9 pm in Anaheim. Translation will be provided for Chinese, Korean, and Spanish; bring an FM radio. Limited childcare will be available; details will be announced later.
Father, according to the riches of Your glory, strengthen us with power into our inner man so that we have Your longing for this conference, and so that we may apprehend the vastness of Christ with all the saints. (Eph. 3:16, 18)

Canada

The website http://www.lordsmoveincanada.org has information on the history, development, and current status of the Lord’s recovery in Canada. The website also has information about each of the churches in Canada. Those who attended the recent ITERO in Toronto testify that the atmosphere is fresh and that the Lord has a way to move in this country. Lord, may Your word of the truth of the gospel continue bearing fruit and growing in Canada! (Col. 1:5-6)

Europe

October 21 to 23 approximately 150 brothers from the churches in Europe will gather in Baarlo, Netherlands, to review the messages given during the fall 2014 ITERO in Toronto, Canada. October 24 to 26 the fall international conference will be held in Baarlo for all the saints in Europe.
Please pray:

  • That the burden of the Lord’s speaking at the ITERO will be received by the brothers in Europe without hindrance, and that this burden will be carried out in the churches for the building up of the Body of Christ to consummate the age for the Lord’s return.
  • For the blending of all the saints in Europe in the divine dispensing of the Divine Trinity for the building up of the Body and the realization of the one new man in Europe.

India

October 19-26 a group of young adult brothers from different localities in India will go to Taiwan. The burden of this trip is that the brothers may be blended in the fellowship of the Body and to learn from the experience of different churches in shepherding and perfecting, so that they may shepherd the saints and be built up in their respective localities with an intrinsic view of the Body of Christ.
