RECENT NEWS FROM YI LING, NORTHERN KIANGSU

To the brothers and sisters who pray for us with a pure heart:

Thank the Lord, He has blessed our recent work. I will now report on the beginning, history, and ending of this work. There is much to thank God for. Glory to the One on the throne and to the Lamb.

The Meetings before the Conference

Before this conference even began, a few of us co-workers and a few brothers and sisters who pray to the Lord met every afternoon at 3:00 to have a prayer meeting to offer specific prayers.

The Items of Prayer

(1) We asked the Lord to give us a work for His own sake and for the sake of the Body and the kingdom.

(2) We asked the Lord to gather those who needed to receive these teachings from His house (the church).

(3) We asked the Lord to work with us to bind the enemy and stop his actions and to release the brothers and sisters who were bound by the enemy.

(4) We asked the Lord to give us an appropriate building where the sleeping, eating, and meetings will not be a problem.

(5) We asked the Lord to supply us and bless our every need in the matters of life, physical needs (money), health, weather, and other necessities.

(6) We asked the Lord to allow us to see Him in everything in the work.

(7) We asked the Lord to capture a group of brothers and sisters to stand firm for Him.

The items listed above were the goal of the prayer in our daily prayer meetings. We prayed for half a month.

Decision

We received the Lord's answer, so we decided that beginning April 7, there would be a sisters' work. Beginning on May 7, there will be a conference for all the responsible brothers and sisters from all the localities in northern Kiangsu. We sent letters of announcement to all the localities.

Announcements

On the one hand, we notified all the sisters in all the localities of northern Kiangsu that whoever could learn to read should come to learn before April 7, and on the other hand, we invited the responsible brothers, sisters, and co-workers to come to Yi Lin on May 7 for a conference. At the same time, we asked the supplicating brothers and sisters to pray for this matter (see Collection of Newsletters, Issue No. 5). Within a few days it was April 7.

The Beginning of the Sisters' Work

There were more than thirty sisters who came from a distance. Together with the sisters from this locality, there were sixty people. We began the work in our original meeting place.

The Condition of the Work

There was prayer every morning from 9:00 to 9:15. From 9:15 to 10:00, they learned to read. From 10:10 to 11:00, they sang hymns. From 11:10 to 11:50, they read the Bible. In the afternoon, they prayed from 2:00 to 2:15. They learned to read from 2:15 to 3:00. They sang hymns from 3:10 to 4:00. They practiced writing from 4:00 to 5:00. There was a meeting in the evening from 7:00 to 9:00. Every day was like this.

Time

There were a total of twenty-four days. In these twenty-four days, there was a prayer meeting every afternoon at 3:00. Some brothers also attended. This prayer influenced the enemy in Hades to do a great work and to open fire in the spiritual realm.

Noise Words

Common words, such as "and", "is", "but", and "the", also known as noise words, are bypassed in a search. The search string, the Spirit & who, would result in an error since who, which stands by itself, is a noise word. The following is a list of noise words:

$, a, also, an, and, another, any, are, as, at, be, because, been, being, both, but, by, came, can, did, do, each, for, has, had, he, have, her, here, him, himself, his, how, if, in, into, is, it, like, make, me, might, much, my, of, on, or, our, out, over, said, should, since, some, still, such, take, than, that, the, their, them, then, there, these, they, this, those, to, too, very, was, way, we, well, were, what, where, which, while, who, with, would, you, your

Ranking

Rank is a value from 0 to 1000 indicating how closely a match scored or ranked against the original search string. Rank values are affected by the following factors:

  1. The total number of occurrences of the original search words/phrases in a portion of a book.
  2. Content that includes the search words in close proximity to each other are ranked above those that do not. Therefore, a portion of a book that has the search words in close proximity may have a higher ranking than another portion of a book that has a higher hit count but the words are not in close proximity to one another. Therefore, we also include a search word hit count for reference.
  3. The rank values are relative to each other. Therefore, it is not possible to interpret the RANK value as a percentage or group the rank values into high/medium/low ranges. Think of rank as a method to order the results for a specific search.

Search Scope

Include All Word Forms

This option breaks out the search string into its individual words and generates all conjugations and declensions for each word in the search phrase. A search on the word, dwell, would search for dwell, dwelling, dwelling's, dwells, dwelt, and dwelled.

There is no need to use ^ (inflectional search) or * (prefix search) when using the Include all word forms search scope.

Specified Word Forms

This option searches for exact matches of the specified words or phrases used in the search string. Use of ^ (inflectional search) with a particular word in the search string will broaden the search for that given word in that all conjugations and declensions for that word will be searched. Similarly, use of * (prefix search) with a particular word in the search string will broaden the search for that given word in that all words with that prefix will be searched as well.

Note

Common words, such as "and", "is", "but", and "the", also known as noise words, are bypassed in a search. A list of all noise words is as follows:

$, about, after, all, also, an,and, another, any, are, as, at, be, because, been, before, being, between, both, but, by, came, can, come, could, did, do, each, for, from, get, got, has, had, he, have, her, here, him, himself, his, how, if, in, into, is, it, like, make, many, me, might, more, most, much, must, my, never, now, of, on, only, or, other, our, out, over, said, same, see, should, since, some, still, such, take, than, that, the, their, them, then, there, these, they, this, those, through, to, too, under, up, very, was, way, we, well, were, what, where, which, while, who, with, would, you, your
