Please pray for the ITERO for the Lord’s speaking to meet the need of His recovery, that the Lord will use this time to cause the brothers to be perfected in life toward maturity and function for the building up of the Body. Please pray for the speaking brothers and for the travel of all the saints.
The Church in Berlin
We thank the Lord that through the prayers of the Body, we have signed the purchase contract for the new meeting hall. Please pray that the Lord will be glorified in His meeting the financial need for the completion of the purchase of the hall through the cheerful giving of the saints in Berlin and the response and supply from the Body. The remaining need is approximately 2.6M USD. The final payment is due November 15.
-UC Berkeley: Pray for the follow up contact with the new students. Pray especially that they would find their home in the church in Berkeley!
-Stanford: Over 45 attended the welcome dinner last Thursday, and over two dozen the campus service on Lord's Day morning. Pray for the Lord to gain the key ones for His building
-Contra Costa College: Pray for the labor of the saints with the on-campus Bible study and ongoing return of the new ones. May the Lord bless the coordination with remaining fruit!
The Gospel of Matthew
Pray for the saints' entrance into the book of Matthew, whether in bible studies, Life-study reading groups or through individual reading. May many partake of this opportunity to be constituted with His Word!
Pray that the family fellowship time can become an entrance for many to enter into the church life. May we all exercise to invite our friends, coworkers, and neighbors to this time!
