Day 11: These are they

Day 11 (Saturday 2nd July 2011)
Day 11 was a big day for 105 saints – it was the Full-Time Training in Anaheim graduation! Praise the Lord! I really enjoyed their presentation of following the Lamb. Who is this Lamb? The Lamb is our Lord Jesus Christ, the one who accomplished redemption for us, and who is now both enthroned in the heavens and also in our spirit!

These are they who have not been defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are they who follow the Lamb wherever He may go. These were purchased from among men as firstfruits to God and to the Lamb.

Day 7: Reigning over the rain

Day 7 (Tuesday 28th June 2011)
We started Day 7 by again gathering for breakfast at the Fresno meeting hall, and then it was time to move on out. Our next destination was: Berkeley! The sky got greyer and greyer as we travelled north, till eventually it was pouring down with rain when we arrived at the Berkeley meeting hall. But despite the rain I was so glad to visit, especially as this was one of the places I hadn’t been to before, and because I knew a few sisters from the area who had travelled through Europe in the past few years. I guess you could say the rain made us feel quite at home… just like today! (Torrential downpours in July? What is wrong with the world?) Anyway, if you are from the US, visiting Berkeley is a small preparation for visiting Europe… it even looks a little similar, reminded me of some of the cities up north like Manchester, Liverpool, etc.

Day 2: We love the church-life!

Day 2 (Thursday 23rd June 2011)
After yesterday’s UCLA day (University of California Los Angeles), day 2 was a USC day (University of Southern California), another university in LA. We met some of the USC Christians on Campus students who gave us a tour of campus, had lunch nearby, and then went to the science centre and watched the IMAX 3D show about the Hubble Space Telescope. It was fascinating to fly into the midst of the stars and the galaxies, and really gave me an appreciation of the vastness of the universe and the immeasurable dimensions of Christ. Awesome.

Our space education wasn’t over. From there we went to Griffith Park Observatory (from where we saw the Hollywood sign – my first time to see it despite visiting LA on previous occasions!) and went to the Planetarium show. Wow, talk about Truth Questions, the narrator brought up the following questions:

  • What is man?
  • Why are we here?
  • What is the earth for?
  • And why does it matter?

What do you think?

Day 1: “Perfection” and Imperfection

Day 1 (Wednesday 22nd June 2011)
As Day 1 dawned, those of us who had arrived the day before were well rested and the coming full schedule helped us to adjust to being eight hours ahead. After enjoying a sweet breakfast time with the UCLA sisters, T and I went over to meet the other (so far) UK saints at the “office”. We had a time of enjoyment and morning revival with the saints, and one brother taught us a new song which is very sweet:

1. Draw me, dear Lord, with Your beauty,
Capture my heart till earth fades away.
I need Your love to attract me
So I can love You more today.

2. Empty me, Lord, how I need You!
Unclog my mind, emotion, and will.
All that I have, I abandon
So You can fill my heart today.

3. Oh fill me now with Your life, Lord,
Flood my whole being with rivers divine.
I open wide; what enjoyment!
To live Your life, dear Lord, as mine.
