Church in Los Angeles Joint Meeting

“The bread which we break, is it not the fellowship of the body of Christ? Seeing that there is one bread, we who are many are one Body; for we all partake of the one bread.” (1 Cor. 10:16b-17)

The whole church in Los Angeles—all of our halls, districts, and languages—will come together from 10 am to 12:15 pm on Lord’s Day, May 12, to blend together as the Lord’s one testimony in this city. This will be at LA Convention Center; a map with instructions is at http://www.churchinlosangeles.org/prayer.

Plan to arrive by 9:45 am to allow time for parking and walking to the meeting room. Parking costs $20, but we will distribute free parking passes at the entrance to the parking lot to those who 1) register with their district for a pass, 2) come early (pray that everyone does this) and 3) have a full (or nearly full) car.

Please entreat the Lord to gather all the saints to praise Him, to partake of Him, and to become more constituted into the reality of His Body.

We encourage everyone to plan toward lunch with others in homes or restaurants for blending (no corporate lunch at Convention Center). Pray for this.

Sixth Grade Conference Report

We had a great weekend with the sixth grade students May 3 to 5. A total of 19 out of 20 registered from L.A. and Santa Clarita for the conference attended (9 girls and 10 boys) with 18 serving saints.

The conference asked, Where are you? —hiding from God, dead in sins, without hope in the world. The students admitted their condition, repented and turned to God, believed that Jesus is their Savior from sin, and confessed their sins to the Lord. As a result they entered into the Kingdom of God, the Church.

We pray that:

  • the one who missed the conference can have this experience of being saved;

  • these newborn babes long for the guileless milk of the word;

  • these new believers have a further experience of the Lord in baptism;

  • they find companions to go on in reading the Bible, praying, and coming to the meetings;

  • their parents will be involved in praying together, reading, and caring for others.

Praise the Lord!!

Oak Glen

We, the churches in Southern California, frequently use Oak Glen. The most recent use was the sixth grade conference. Thank the Lord for such a facility. The plan was to have paid the entire purchase amount by last December, but we were, and still are, far short of that goal. Let us open to the Lord about our giving, above our usual giving, to help with this purchase.

India

The October ITERO will be in Bangalore, India. Last October’s ITERO in Ethiopia led to a great propagation of the recovery in that nation as well as much encouragement to brothers from many other nations in Africa.

Ask the Lord to use this October’s ITERO to greatly strengthen and enlarge His move in India and the surrounding countries. Also ask the Lord to send many brothers from the U.S. including some from L.A.

Berlin, Germany

The church in Berlin is pleased to announce that we are in the final stages of securing a new meeting hall. We continue to need your fighting prayers, particularly for the signing of the contract and that the city authorities will give us the approval for the property to be used for church purposes by May 15.

United Kingdom

Spring weekend retreats are taking place at Bower House during all weekends of May. The goal of these times is to come together with fellow believers to blend and learn to function together in pursuing the truth and in serving practically. It is also a wonderful opportunity to invite friends, family, or someone you know who would like to know the Lord more or meet with other believers.

United Arab Emirates and Turkey

The Lord’s Move to Asia newsletter describes His move to raise up seven churches in the UAE with over 200 saints meeting regularly. It also gives the testimony about the Lord’s preparation of a couple who migrated to Istanbul, Turkey in 2007 and has continued since then.
