The International Training for Elders and Responsible Ones (ITERO) will be Friday to Lord’s Day, March 30 to April 1. More than 1000 brothers from around the globe will participate so that the Spirit can speaking to the churches. In April ITERO messages will be respoken in other parts of the world for those who could not come to Anaheim. The burden for this time is that the Lord will make many brothers able ministers of the New Testament, effective building material for the universal building up of the Body of Christ, and good stewards and serving ones in the local churches.
In preaching the gospel, we have to learn the Body life. If we are burdened for a neighbor, we will ask some brothers to help us bring this neighbor to the Lord….We will work not just by ourselves, but we will invite the brothers to work together with us in a way of coordination. I say again, if we have the spirit of the Body life, people will sense it. If we have love among us, people around us will sense what we have, and that love and living will be a very strong factor to convince the unbelievers–our neighbors and friends–to open their spirits to the Lord. We need the Body life, and the best way to be built up together is for us to have the fellowship unto the furtherance of the gospel.

The church in L.A. has an on-going work at Santa Monica College, several saints from L.A. work in Santa Monica, and a few who live in Santa Monica meet in hall 5. Three groups of Spanish-speaking saints also meet in Santa Monica. Lord, raise up an English-speaking nucleus to continue the church life in Santa Monica with the Spanish-speakers who are there.
Please pray the Lord bring all the high school young people YP into the reality of the experiences of Isaac and knowing the God of Isaac as the God of provision for His purpose to produce them as burnt offerings who are prepared to be His bride for His satisfaction.
