Morgan Hill and Gilroy, CA—Gospel Trip, Final Report

February 14, 2017

Praise the Lord for the Lord’s move in Morgan Hill and Gilroy. We truly tasted the normal church life, which is living, active, vibrant and vital. Their care and love for us really impressed us. It was so joyful and normal to see all the saints pouring out everything by shepherding, opening the homes, and preparing all the practical details for this gospel trip. We will truly miss the saints and continue to pray for them so that the Lord can do whatever and exactly He wants to do in Bay Area for His Body, Bride and Kingdom.

Enjoyment:
We were brought back again and again to this precious quote: “When a person is graced with being part of one of God’s special moves on this earth, it is the greatest blessing of his life. God’s move makes an impression that he will never forget, and it becomes an unending source of supply to him. Whoever can participate in such a flow is most blessed. I believe that whenever someone who was in such a flow thinks back on it, he will have fond memories of that time. It is a great blessing for a person to be able to participate in the flow of God’s work, the flow of revival, at least once in his lifetime.” We are so privileged to be part of the Lord’s move.

Prayer Burdens:

  • Pray that the Lord will bless the follow up of the new contacts in Morgan Hill and Gilroy.
  • Pray the Lord will put the new contacts in the hearts of the local saints.
  • Pray for the going on of the saints to cooperate with the Lord for His move after the gospel trip.
  • Pray that the Lord will use localities in the Bay Area for the building up of His Body, for the preparation of His Bride and the coming of His Kingdom.

Ottawa, ON and Laval, QC—Gospel Trip, Days 14-16

February 12, 2017

These past two weeks have flown by and we have reached the end of the sowing trips to Ottawa and Laval. In one of our readings for this gospel trip, we read this quote from Brother Lee (Three Aspects of the Church: the Course of the Church):

When a person is graced with being part of one of God’s special moves on this earth, it is the greatest blessing of his life. God’s move makes an impression that he will never forget, and it becomes an unending source of supply to Him

I think we can all testify that participating on this trip has been a blessing and has left us with an impression that we will never forget. Thank you saints for laboring in coordination with us and sending us your much needed prayers. We really felt covered under the prayers of the saints.

Gospel Outreach:
On Friday morning during our coordination time, many saints shared concerning their experiences of passing out Bibles in the metro stations. The reports were very encouraging.

  • At Station Mount Morency, one contact joined us to pass out free Bibles. In addition, we met a sister who had read Brother Watchman Nee before. She was really excited to meet us and this Saturday, she came to the seminar.
  • At Station Henri-Bourassa, we met an evangelist brother and we were able to have sweet fellowship with Him. He heard that God needs a counterpart and we are to be His counterpart. In order for us to be His counterpart, we need to match Christ in life and nature. He realized that the bride was not ready and he needs to allow Christ to spread in him from his spirit, to his soul, and to his body.
  • At Station Cote-Vertu, we met a fellow believer who initially didn’t want to leave his contact information. That evening, he called us and asked if he and his wife could get a ride to the seminar.
  • At station Cartier, we met another brother who was seeking for a church and we exchanged contact information and invited him to come to the Bible seminar and Lord’s Table meeting. In addition, one Muslim contact heard about the three parts of man and called on the name of the Lord to receive Christ into him.

Praise the Lord for all these contacts!

On Saturday, many of the local saints, including young people and college students, joined us in distributing Bibles at the metro stations. We were very encouraged to see the young people, college students, and local saints participate in the labor. Actually, we passed out the most amount of Bibles on that day, 340 Bibles in total. Praise the Lord, we can labor together in coordination and a threefold cord is not easily broken (Eccl 4:12).

The following night, we had 12 new ones join us at the Bible seminar. The topic was the Spirit who is All-Sufficient. The new ones heard about God’s economy and that God’s economy is to dispense Himself in Christ as the Spirit into his children. After the presentation, we broke up into five different groups: two English groups, two French groups, and one Spanish group. Many new ones heard about calling on the name of the Lord and reading the Word as ways to receive this Spirit who is all-sufficient. Oh Lord Jesus! Oh Seigneur Jésus! Oh Señor Jesús!

On Lord’s Day morning, two brothers gave an encouraging report concerning the labor in Ottawa and the labor in Laval. This was a great encouragement to the saints. One of the contacts that we met also came to the Lord’s Table meeting. During the table meeting, he offered many prayers and many praises to the Lord. During the love feast afterwards, we connected him with some of the local saints and found someone who could bring him from Laval to the meetings. Lord, may you gain this one as a key one for your building here in Laval.

Lethbridge, AB—Gospel Trip, Days 14-16

February 12, 2017

We arrived in Edmonton on 2/10/17 and had lunch with the saints. After lunch, we went to the University of Alberta and had a meeting with local saints including students in the University of Alberta. The saints were able to fellowship about their burden for the campus work at the University of Alberta with the team to gain more students and bring them fully into the church life. After the fellowship, the team with the local saints including students went out to two train stations near the campus and distributed the gospel tracts. 204 gospel tracts were distributed and we found out that a lot of people were interested and read while waiting for the next train. In the evening, the team was able to join the weekly college student meeting and fellowshipped about the spirit as a receiving organ. Many students were able to share their portion and enjoy the fellowship.

We also had the meeting with local saints in the morning at the meeting hall on 2/11/17 and also had an opportunity to have a conference call with the GTCA team in Abbotsford and brother Robert Lim. Each team shared about their GTCA gospel trip experiences in Canada and all were encouraged. After the call, we prayed for the Lord’s move in Canada and the college conference in Edmonton with local saints. During the day, four teams of saints who are composed of trainees and local saints visited some saints who need encouragement including dormant saints. We also had three meetings in the evening including Young People’s meeting, Chinese speaking home meeting, and English speaking home meeting.

There will be the first college conference on Feb 18-19 and this will be held in Edmonton. There will be about 65 students signed up from different localities such as Lethbridge, Calgary and Edmonton. Praise the Lord for His move in college students in Canada.

We thank the Lord for this GTCA gospel trip opportunity from 1/28/17 to 2/12/17. We were able to see how the Lord has been moving in North America. May the Lord continue to spread and increase in North America as well as all over the world for the building up of His Body, the preparation of His bride and bringing in His kingdom.

Prayer Burdens:

  • The Lord would gain what He is after during the first college conference in Edmonton, AB from 2/18-2/19 and release all the students to see the vision and be governed by the vision.
  • Campus work would prevail in the University of Alberta by strengthening the core students and the new local Canadian contacts would be brought into the church life.
  • The Lord would release the blending among the churches in Alberta Canada.

Medford, OR and Yakima, WA—Gospel Trip, Days 13-14

February 11, 2017

On Friday morning, we went door-knocking at the dorms and nearby neighborhood of the Pacific Northwest University. Although some people were not at home and we didn’t get many positive response, we got revived and realized we are the happiest Christians on earth. After dinner, we had our last wonderful blending time with the saints. We sang Hymn #1159 with three different languages (English, Spanish and Chinese). We can testify that though we all come from different backgrounds, we are one in the Lord. By partaking of Christ as our unique food, we can be one with other members in the Body.

On Saturday morning, we had a Bible study appointment with sister Sally’s family. We read the Samaritan woman’s story in John 4 and shared the gospel to her unbelieving parents. Praise the Lord, they called upon the Lord’s name with us and the salvation has come to this house. Later on, they committed to have this kind of Bible study every Saturday morning.

After this, we went to a gospel meeting at Yakima Convention Center. There are about 100 attendees in the meeting, including the saints and the new ones. A lot of saints from nearby churches attended meeting. One brother shared a short message on Matt. 16:13-17, the Church is being built up by Christ as the person, the revelation of Christ and by declaring the revelation. Following that, trainees and about 10 local saints shared what they have seen of this wonderful Christ. It was the first time to have such a big meeting take place in Yakima. We can all testify that the Lord is moving in a definite way here! And God’s glory and presence filled the meeting room!

Prayer Burdens:

  • Please pray for the immigration and participation for the Lord’s move in Yakima.
  • Please pray the Lord could continue His work in the new ones contacted last week.
