The Intrinsic Practice of the Church Life

The church life is the all-inclusive Christ with His unsearchable riches realized, experienced, and expressed by all the saints in a corporate way. If we would have such a church life, we need to be constituted with Christ until all that we are and have is simply Christ Himself. Lord, constitute Yourself into me for Your expression in Los Angeles.

High School Conferences

The high school conferences are October 31 to November 2, brothers in Irvine, sisters in Anaheim. 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.

Southern California Blending Conference POSTPONED

The Southern California Blending Conference scheduled for Saturday, November 15, has been postponed. The new conference date will probably be in early 2015.

Bibles for America

On November 1, BfA will begin 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.

London

In November, we will have a series of seminars in four locations across London every Lord’s Day of the month (for a total of 20 seminars; see http://www.amanatrust.org.uk/novemberseminars). The burden is that a new district of the church in London would be raised up. Our work has been ongoing for a few weeks now (outline writing, phone calling, practical logistics, etc.), but once again, the real labour needs to be much and thorough prayer. We need every aspect of the seminar preparation this month to be covered by and supplied through prayer.
The topic of the seminar is Changing Death into Life and will focus on 8 gospel cases in the book of John. May the Lord change much death into life. May a harvest be reaped across the city of London for the Lord to gain His building in the largest city in Europe. Pray for:

  • the preparation for the November seminars;
  • the phone calls being made to invite Londoners to the seminars. Pray that good contacts would be made and that many would be open to attend the seminars in their area;
  • the supply to all the labouring saints preparing for the seminars.
