Lord, may we all see much more of Your preciousness and Your centrality.
“Flee youthful lusts, and pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.” (2 Tim. 2:22)
We rejoice that 20 young people (almost all sixth graders) were baptized last Saturday. Ask the Lord to lead them to flee the world by pursuing Him with companions.
During this time they were encouraged to “flee” and “pursue.” To flee is to escape the corruption in the world by lust. And to pursue is to pursue Christ as righteousness, faith, love, and peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. Pray that all these newly baptized young people enter into this living.
At the sixth grade conference the young people were encouraged to testify to friends, “I am a Christian.” Pray also that they learn to testify for the Lord early in their Christian lives.
Please pray that all the parents, all who serve with children, and many others enter into this vision and burden. Details about the June 8 time are in the announcements below.
Ask the Lord to release more prayer in Boston, to stir up the hunger in more students, and to increase the vitality of the daily church life in Boston, Cambridge, and Newton.
Please pray that the people of Boston would remain open, that the white horse would run, and that the word of God would grow and multiply in New England. Pray that many people would order a copy of the New Testament Recovery Version and through it receive the One who can save them and bring them to the full knowledge of the truth.
Do also stand with the churches and saints in the Greater Boston area that they will be strengthened and sustained in the follow-up labor among the Bible recipients in the coming days. May the word of the Lord grow mightily and prevail in the New England states!
Here is one of the BfA ads in the subways. The word in orange varies from ad to ad; it is one of strength, hope, comfort, love.
The goal of this training is to supply college students with a vision, equip them with truth, help them in their experience of life, perfect them in the preaching of the gospel, and develop their character so that they can become useful vessels for the building up of the Body of Christ. Moreover, this training affords them the opportunity to blend with their peers who love God, pursue Christ, and seek His kingdom.
The west coast training is July 8 to 14. Normal registration ends June 2; registration with late fee ends June 16. As the Lord to draw many to give themselves for this time.
BfA is offering a free two-book set of The Normal Christian Life by W. Nee and The Economy of God by W. Lee. Many saints first touched the ministry of the age through The Normal Christian Life, which revolutionized their understanding of the Christian life. The Economy of God is known by few outside the churches in the recovery, yet it is important and powerful in guiding believers into the deeper aspects of the Christian life.
Christians today desperately need the truths and practical applications in these two books and should not be deprived of the help and revelation in these life-changing books. Please pray
Continue to support in prayer the first term of training in Africa. Pray for the trainees’ apprehension of the truths, their growth in life, and their contacts at the University of Pretoria, which is walking distance from our training center.
Colley Joseph from Oklahoma is at the training this week and next.
