    Pods.  This includes a training at the Los Angeles Chinese Alliance Church
    (3/24) and at the Chinese Evangelical Free Church of Los Angeles (4/28). 
    Victor has also been invited to speak for the AACF groups at Cal Poly SLO
    (4/12) and UC Irvine (5/23).

    University (6/17-21). God Pods will be the tool used for the morning prayer

2/23 Prayer Meeting minutes
Hi Everyone!
For those of you who missed last Friday’s meeting, I took some time to discuss revival. I
sometimes fear that word because many times, we only think about the end result –
people flocking to churches, non-believers coming to know Christ in bunches and
culture being transformed. But what we fail to consider is how revival begins – with small
groups of people praying and asking for God to demonstrate his love and power. My
own denomination, the Christian and Missionary Alliance, had its beginnings with a
group of young college students praying for the nations. My current ministry, Asian
American Christian Fellowship started with a small group of students meeting for Bible
study at Cal State Los Angeles. And, certainly, Jesus’ ministry had its roots with twelve
disciples. So I invite us all to pray that the development of the God pods may have the
same type of impact. Small groups of people praying in their pods to hear God’s voice.

  1. the pastors group in Arizona has declined the invitation to start God pods. They
    had a concern with what might come out of people trying to hear God’s voice.
    While I believe that spiritual authority should remedy this fear, we will respect
    their decision to not participate. Perhaps further down the road
  2. I have had conversations with two churches here in the LA area about starting
    God pods. I met with folks at the Los Angeles Chinese Alliance Church
    yesterday. It was a very positive time and they might be able to work with other
    C&MA churches in the area when we get to August.  I will introduce the God
    pods to the Chinese Evangelical Free Church at the end of April. They have
    other area churches that they often partner with. So there is great potential
  3. Steve Quen reported about the third God pod held at his church earlier this
    month. He mentioned how people are becoming more aware of God’s voice
    and that there is a clear softening of hearts.
    Hope to see everyone for our next gathering on Friday, March 22nd.
