Middle-Age Full-Time Training

The fall term of the middle age training in Anaheim begins this week. One hundred ten are registered; 93 for the full term and 17 for a week or a few weeks. Please pray for the Lord’s moving in every trainee 1) for an eagerness to know Him and be trained, 2) for a strong exercise of the mingled spirit, and 3) for the 17, that the Lord will open a door and that each will give themselves to stay for the whole term.

Frankfurt, Germany

There has been a lot of positive development this year. Please continue to pray for us. Last fall, before the gospel activities started, we had a Lord’s Day attendance of 10-15 adults, meeting in homes. Now we have 35-45, including those who migrated here and new saints, not including visitors.
We have access to our new meeting hall starting this month. Besides meeting rooms, it has four small apartments. We praise and thank the Lord for His bountiful supply from the Body. We no longer need to change meeting places frequently through the week. Please pray that the new facility will release more blessing and building for the church, and be utilized profitably for the gospel and perfecting of the saints.
We have about 50 new ones from the Middle East who were baptized; the majority are Farsi speaking. We are laboring faithfully to enlarge our capacity to shepherd them with new believers’ meetings, home meetings, and other personal contacts. Please pray that many new ones will receive adequate shepherding and perfecting to become useful material for God’s building.
We also have several hundred on our master list seeking further contact through the Bible Table distributions. These are another field of labor. Among these are a handful of local Germans that we try to take care of. South Africa, Angola, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia
James Lee and Craig Birchler will be in South Africa for a conference in Pretoria September 9 to 11. At the conference many new ones are expected, especially a number from nearby countries such as Zambia, Zimbabwe, Angola, and Botswana.
After the conference James Lee will have a one week class at FTT Pretoria. The new ones from Angola, Zimbabwe, and Botswana will also join the class. This will be a very crucial time for saints from Zimbabwe and Angola because Zimbabwe is about to have their first Lord’s Table in early October and the testimony in Angola is getting restored and strengthened to go on with the rest of the recovery. Please pray for this conference and also for the Lord’s gaining these nearby countries for His testimony.
