Increase in L.A.

“These things I command you that you may love one another.” This is to love one another in the Lord’s life, the divine life, in the Lord’s love, and in His commission of fruit-bearing. Life is the source, love is the condition, and fruit-bearing is the goal. If we all live by the Lord’s life as the source, in the Lord’s love as the condition, and for fruit-bearing as the goal, we surely will love one another. Having different sources of life, different conditions, or different goals will separate us and prevent us from loving one another. (John 15:17 and note)
Let us ask the Lord to bring us into this gospel atmosphere full of life, love, and fruit-bearing to reach relatives, students, friends, neighbors, and work places and to recover dormant saints so that at least 1000 are meeting with the church by the end of this year.

Children’s Work Perfecting Conference

This conference will be Saturday, November 9th from 9:00 am until 3:30 pm at the Diamond Bar meeting hall. We will be focusing our fellowship on the need to compile children’s lessons that build up a proper humanity and lead the children into a proper enjoyment. Donation is $20, including lunch. To register please click here.
“The harvest is great, but the workers few; therefore, beseech the Lord of the harvest that He would thrust out workers into His harvest.” (Luke 10:2) The labor in this harvest is not only Lord’s Day morning but also through the week in our homes and among children in our neighborhoods.

Boston

Everything related to the construction of the Boston training center is finished, including the parking lot and landscape. (photos below) The building has a positive effect on the surrounding neighborhoods and this project brought in the Lord’s blessing to the churches in the Greater Boston Area.
In order to get the final Occupancy Permit and Assembly Permit from the Boston Fire Department and the City of Boston, several inspections are necessary. We rejoice and thank the Lord for bringing us to this point. May our prayers give Him the way to head up the inspections and all things related to the timely completion of this project.

Bibles for America

On Friday, November 1, BfA will begin a three-week distribution tour. It will begin in Philadelphia and continue south through Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia, and North and South Carolina. Tour participants will give away free copies of the NT Recovery Version and books by Watchman Nee and Witness Lee while blending with the saints in each locality they visit. Please pray that:

  • The Lord would brood over this part of the country and prepare many hungry ones to receive the Word and the ministry.
  • The traveling saints would remain safe and be strengthened into their inner man throughout this trip.

One-Week Trainings in Europe

There will again be four one week trainings at Bower House in London, beginning Mondays October 28, November 4, 11, and 25. The overall theme is The Four Great Pillars in the Lord’s Recovery: Truth, Life, the Church, and the Gospel. Attendees will also spend some time with FTT London with the brothers and sisters in London or surrounding churches.
Please pray that the saints will be perfected in the divine truths, in their daily life before the Lord, in practicing the vital groups, in participating in the spread of the divine truths throughout Europe, in becoming fruit-bearing branches in the vine, and in developing their organic functions for the building up of the churches in their respective localities.

Chile

There will be a national training for serving brothers October 31 to November 2.

Bulgaria

More than 100 attended the conference held in Sofia on October 11-13, including Bulgarians and visiting saints from Romania, Turkey, England, Spain, Greece, and the United States. Most of the saints from Bulgaria were gathered together for the first time. Several Bulgarian brothers expressed a desire to attend a one-week training in London in November.
Please pray:

  • That the brothers who attend the one-week training will receive a governing vision from the Lord
  • That the saints who met each other for the first time during the conference will go on to pursue
    the Lord and His testimony together
  • That the Lord will lead the serving ones to continue to care for the saints in Bulgaria
