Testimonies from the FTTL Autumn 2011 First-Term Trainees

The Full-Time Training in London (FTTL) restarted on Monday 8th August, and the trainees are now going into their third week of term. How time flies! (And here’s a cool post related to time: Infinity within Finite Beings).

It seems like I was only just telling you about the FTTL Spring 2011 graduation, yet that was a few months ago. On the same note, this evening I was emailing a friend from university, as well as chatting to a Christian sister on Gmail, and in both conversations I was reminded that it is now more than four years since my graduation from the Full-Time Training in London.

That means I am now going into my fifth year of serving the Lord. Wow!

When I put it like that, it sounds so long, and yet… it really hasn’t felt like a long time, a suffering, or a drag. Instead it has been a real joy and delight, and a real learning and growing with the Lord. I love the Lord, and I love the church, and although I am very open for any change the Lord may bring, at this present moment in time, I am very happy in my service. Amen, more of You Lord, each day! :)

But now, let’s get back to this term!

If you have been keeping an eye on the news, you will have heard about the riots taking place in London, which also spread to other UK cities. Actually, this brings together a few of the items I had been planning to mention, although not with the focus I had originally intended. I hope I have the utterance to convey this now.

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.

FTTL Graduation (and all the other days)

June 4th, 2011 Categories: reporting..., singing... 2 comments

We’re reaching the end of the academic year now, and although students still have exams and schools are in session for a few more weeks, the Full-Time Training in London (FTTL) term has drawn to a close. Today was the graduation of five trainees who consecrated the past two years to the Lord to be trained in matters of Bible truth and church service. Their presentation today was a real testimony of their experience and enjoyment of the Lord during their time in the training.
