The following report was written on 17th June 2012, as I was returning home from a glorious weekend in the church in Rome. Hallelujah! There were 561 saints from 29 countries gathered together this weekend to participate in the Italian Conference and the Resumption of the Lord’s Table in Rome. Praise the Lord!
It has been super busy here in London these past five months. My lack of posts is some indication of this, as is this packed calendar of conferences and events. And it’s not too late to join some, as there are plenty more taking place all around Europe in the next few months – starting with Germany this weekend!
All these different events have of course required much fellowship and coordination (not that I have been involved in them all), as we serve together to take care of many practical things. But it is wonderful to be in a heavenly team, with Christ our Forerunner (Hebrews 6:20), and the many members of His Body, each functioning according to their measure (Romans 12:4).
Not one of us can do it by ourselves… More and more we see our lack and our need for help. We need the brothers and the sisters, the younger ones and the older ones, the new ones and the more experienced ones, and especially we need all the praying saints around the whole earth (Ephesians 6:18)!
So thank you for your prayers, dear brothers and sisters, and I am sorry I haven’t been faithful to give many reports recently related to how the Lord has been continuing to move here in the UK and Europe.
Well, to make up for it, I’m going to spend the next few posts briefly recapping on what has been going on. (I tried to write it all in one post, but I couldn’t – it is too much!) And then I’ll tell you why this summer is not looking like it is going to be any slower than the winter or spring…
Although that is far from a complaint: the move of the Triune God is very exciting. Let His Word run!
Ok, we’ll begin with our recap tomorrow. Come back then!
Today was such an awesome day! It certainly wasn’t a waste of time at all! I actually went to two Lord’s table meetings today. The first was in district 9 of the church in London. We had our regular meeting this morning, and it was so full of life, life, life, and we were all being encouraged to just eat, eat, eat!
Then the second meeting was in Greenwich, for the first Lord’s table in district 11 of the church in London! Praaaaise the Lord! Many saints came together for this new beginning from all across London and nearby cities. It was glorious! Maybe you can tell I am a little excited :) But it was just awesome!
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.
