The Word of the Truth of the Gospel

“The word of the truth of the gospel, which has come to you, even as it is also in all the world, bearing fruit and growing, as also in you, since the day you heard and knew the grace of God in truth.” (Col. 1:5b-6)
Lord, constitute us with Your truth to fill our words of the gospel. Lord, send us out with the gospel and cause the truth of this gospel to bear fruit and grow in Los Angeles.

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

This annual festival, September 26 to 29, is the biggest festival among the Korean community. The location in Olympic and Normandie. 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 had one Bible seminar on September 21 and will have another on 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 bring many seeking ones to the Bible seminars and connect them to the Bible clubs.
  • 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, to build up one another in their most holy faith, and to 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.

Santa Barbara

Please beseech the Lord to gain some local couples or families whose homes will be open for the church life. And ask the Lord for some younger couples or families to migrate here to strengthen the church life and to help care for college students.
Also pray for good contacts at the table set this week on the UCSB campus and many new students to attend the welcome barbecue on Saturday.

Anaheim

District 5 of the church in Anaheim began meeting Lord’s Day, September 22. Please ask the Lord to move through the saints there for the gospel, for visiting and nourishing new believers, and for mutual perfecting.

Boston

Please pray for the expeditious and final approved inspections by the fire marshall so that we can move the training from Newton into the Boston training center. Pray for continued blessing on the campus labor with connections to clusters of students at each university. This year, Harvard is the focus for the church in Cambridge, Boston University is the focus for the church in Boston, and Northeastern is the focus for the church in Newton.
Also, pray for the development of the vital, group-based living around all of the campuses.

Lord’s Move to Asia

A conference concerning the “Lord’s Move to Asia” will be held in Bangkok, Thailand from September 29 to October 1. There will be much prayer and fellowship concerning the specific burden of the Lord’s move to Asia and the co-ordination related to this move. It is hoped that through this time of blending, all the churches in Asia will be brought into the one accord in the fellowship of the Body of Christ for the increase and spread of His testimony from southeast Asia to countries on the Arabian peninsula. Through this conference we desire to give the Lord an unhindered way so that the gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the whole inhabited earth and church trees will be planted for the establishment of the kingdom of God.

ITERO

The International Training for Elders and Responsible Ones will be October 3 to 5 in Bangkok, Thailand, followed by a blending meeting with the churches in Thailand October 6. Please pray that through this training Christ will grow in all of us unto maturity.

Croatia and Serbia

Please pray that Lord will continue to sow the seed of the ministry in Croatia, Serbia, and the remaining countries of the former Yugoslavia and will raise up lampstands in many cities.
Thirteen saints from these countries attended the conference in Slovakia on 14-15 September. In the conference they tasted the fellowship in the Body of Christ and were under the speaking of the heavenly vision of God’s economy. Please pray that they will be strengthened to leave their background and take the way of the Lord’s recovery.
