Love Offering for Armenia/Georgia – Because of the gifts from the churches and saints in the Body, the church in Yerevan, Armenia has been able to secure two properties in a very key location for their hall. They have further need to begin remodeling and construction. Bob will be participating in two conferences in Armenia/Georgia during the first two weekends in October. We encourage the saints to give, as the Lord leads, especially by next Lord’s Day, September 30, 2012, so that Bob can take the offering with him.
Visit to FTTA – Brother Paul Niesen will be visiting our full-time trainees on the weekend of October 6. Anna Wong, Sarah Tak, and Jonah Huang would enjoy hearing words of encouragement and receiving small gifts from the saints in Dunn Loring and DC. Please bring them to the service office by next Lord’s Day, September 30, 2012.

Defense & Confirmation Project – In response to a recent letter from the opposition, an open public statement is being prepared concerning our beliefs, along with positive testimonies from contacts among significant theologians and ministry leaders. Please pray: 1) that the statement would have a significant impact on the campus work; 2) for the meetings of the brothers with these contacts and that they have positive outcomes; 3) for the strengthening of those who committed to write testimonies and their timely completion; 4) for the traveling brothers – that they would be safe and strengthened in the Lord; and 5) for other open doors. Additionally, the Christian Research Institute has recently posted new video clips that accompany audio segments of the Bible Answer Man radio broadcasts concerning the local churches and the ministry of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee. These videos are available at: http://www.equip.org/localchurch and http://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL793DA547CA28A410. We encourage you to view these and “like” the ones that strike you. Please continue to pray for the effectiveness of the clips, especially the positive effect on young people on the college campuses. Further information is available on the bulletin board at the service office.
