“God Has Blended the Body Together” (1 Cor. 12:24)

Lord’s Day, October 19 the whole church in Los Angeles will gather at L.A. Trade Tech College (the same location as in April). Ask the Lord to release every one of us to attend and to exercise our spirit to partake of the blending which God has already accomplished.

Korean Language Bible Distribution

The Korean-speaking saints did a Bible distribution during the L.A. Korean Festival last week (September 18-21). We distributed about 1100 Bibles including 100 English and 80 Spanish. This will be followed by Bible seminars on three Saturdays—September 27, October 4 and 11. Through the seminars they hope to get many seekers to participate in their weekly Bible club meetings.
The overall atmosphere was good and many people appreciated the free study Bible and showed interest in Bible seminars or Bible clubs. We received contact information for about 650 people.

Spain and Portugal

The saints serving in the Iberian Peninsula are burdened to cover the full Peninsula including Spain, Portugal, their island territories, the micro state of Andorra, and Gibraltar. The total population is close to 60 million. The Lord is opening up many areas, some where we have new saints meeting, others with contacts and scattered saints.
At present there are three couples serving full time in Madrid and one in Lisbon. The scattered and new saints need much shepherding; frequent and personal visits are the best way and central to our service here. Given the need and the size of the field, we feel we are very shorthanded.
The Lord’s recovery in here started in the early 80s and there had been some young saints sent to the full-time training several years ago. Then there was a gap of a few years with no young saints in the full-time training. Now there is a new crop who has been raised up and over the past two years some have graduated from the training and begun serving.
A three-page report about the Lord’s move here is at http://www.churchinlosangeles.org/prayer.

Switzerland

After many months of struggle, Christians on Campus in Lausanne is officially an organization now. First campus in Switzerland. Lord, provide many more.

Lebanon and Cyprus

The church in Beirut warmly extends an invitation to the churches to share with us in a time of fellowship and blending to be held on the island of Cyprus September 25-28.
