The Word of Christ Dwelling in us Richly

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to God.” (Col. 3:16)
Let us petition the Lord to stir up our interest and our seeking to pursue the truth in His word through the help of the abundant ministry available to us. May His word dwell in us richly to constitute us with His truth.

Perfecting for Spanish-Speaking Saints

This fall there is another Perfecting Training Series for Spanish-speaking saints in Southern California. Topics are Vital Living (September 21), Gospel Service (November 16), and Truth Equipping (December 14). Lord, perfect the saints “unto the work of the ministry, unto the building up of the Body of Christ” (Eph. 4:12).

L.A. Korean Festival, Bible Seminars and Bible Clubs

This annual festival, September 26 to 29, is the biggest festival among the Korean community. Last year, we distributed more than 700 Korean Recovery Version New Testaments during this festival. This year we were able to get a booth where we can present and distribute the Recovery Version in a more secure way. Many saints will distribute in the street as well.
Also, we are preparing Bible seminars on September 21 and October 5 targeting many hungry ones in L.A. Korean community. The ultimate goal of these seminars is to link them to Bible clubs meeting weekly where all the seeking ones can enjoy His rich Words with the Korean Recovery Version.
Please pray that

  • The Lord brings many seeking ones to the Bible seminars.
  • Recovery Version Bibles could be distributed without any hindrance during Korean Festival.
  • The Lord bless all the Bible clubs to be wide open entrances to the church life for many new ones.

L.A. Young People’s Joint Gathering

On September 28th, there will be a joint young people’s meeting at Hall 5 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm with dinner served. Parents are welcome to attend also.
Please pray that the Lord would build up a strong monthly young people’s meeting for junior high and high school young people to enjoy the Lord together, build up one another in their most holy faith, and be encouraged to stand in this age as lights of the world, salt of the earth, branches in the vine, and seeds of life for the Lord’s spread.

BfA at Oklahoma State Fair

This year, saints will again distribute BfA materials at the Oklahoma State Fair, September 12 to 22. The fair attracts roughly one million attendees from all over the state. Please pray for the Lord to strengthen the distributing saints and to dispense His riches throughout Oklahoma through these days of distribution.

Boston and London Graduates Serving in Europe

Three graduates of the FTTA-XB (Boston) plus a serving couple arrived in London, and a fourth graduate is planning to migrate in October. Other graduates are expected to follow later in the year. In addition, 14 spring term FTTL (London) graduates have begun to serve. Please pray for the Lord’s rich supply to the new full-timers, for their blending with all the current serving ones and the saints in Europe, and for the Lord’s abundant blessing on all their labor.

University Campuses in Europe

Please pray for the preparations for the fall semester on the university campuses in Europe. Pray especially that the Lord will prepare a good number of first-year students who can be gained for His recovery.
