To the churches and the saints in the Lord’s recovery:
Due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Living Stream Ministry has decided to modify the format for the upcoming 2020 International Memorial Day Blending Conference. The conference will no longer be held in Atlanta, GA. Instead, Living Stream Ministry will host this conference completely online. We also hope that through the help of the churches there could be online prophesying times by localities after each streamed message. In this letter we wish to offer details about LSM’s first global online ministry conference. Everyone who receives this letter should feel free to distribute it to other saints in the churches.
All the messages of the 2020 Memorial Day Conference will be streamed beginning at the following times in each locality’s time zone:
|Message 1:||7:00 p.m.||Friday, 22 May 2020|
|Message 2:||10:00 a.m.||Saturday, 23 May 2020|
|Message 3:||7:00 p.m.||Saturday, 23 May 2020|
|Message 4:||10:00 a.m.||Lord’s Day, 24 May 2020|
|Message 5:||7:00 p.m.||Lord’s Day, 24 May 2020|
|Message 6:||10:00 a.m.||Monday, 25 May 2020|
|7:00 p.m.||Monday, 25 May 2020|
(outside the U.S.)
By streaming the meetings by time zones we hope that the messages of this conference will be received by many, many more saints than what would be possible in live meetings in one location.
Messages will be streamed in English, Chinese, Spanish, Korean, Japanese, and Portuguese.
We wish to encourage all the churches to host online prophesying sessions following each message meeting. Suggestions for doing so will be sent separately to the responsible ones in the churches.
The website for streaming the conference messages is conf.lsmwebcast.com. This site does not require an account and is open to all the saints and churches during the following times:
Beginning: 6:55 p.m., Friday, 22 May 2020, in each time zone
Ending: Midnight, Monday, 25 May 2020, in each time zone.
The site will interactively guide each saint to the correct language and to the correct time zone for his or her locality.
The messages will be streamed promptly in each time zone according to the above schedule. Hence, if someone goes to the site late and opens the video stream, they will be joining the meeting in progress. For example, if someone joins the Friday night meeting at 7:20 p.m. in his or her time zone, the stream will commence 20 minutes into the meeting, not from the beginning.
Therefore, we will need to be on time for all the meetings just as we would in a live conference at a hotel.
After each ministry message the conference site will direct the saints to join online prophesying sessions, which we hope will promote the blending among the churches. It is our hope that through the cooperation of the churches the saints in every place will have already received an invitation to join an online blending meeting for prophesying. But if not, LSM will host a limited number of online prophesying sessions by language (English, Spanish, Chinese, and Korean only).
While we encourage all the saints in the churches to watch the conference messages at the same time as the other localities in their time zone, we understand that some may not be able to do so. Thus, two hours after each streamed meeting ends, the message will be available on the “Archives” page of the conference site. This will afford the way for more saints to receive the riches within the same few days of the conference.
After all the conference messages have been streamed and the message archive period has expired across the globe (i.e., UTC 10:00, Tuesday, 26 May 2020), the conference site will be put into standby mode, and no messages will be available from the conference website. However, all the conference messages will be available for purchase at www.lsmwebcast.com from then on.
We are looking to the Lord and expecting Him to use this pandemic to do something extraordinary among us during this time. We are praying that He will help us to open this channel for the release of His Word through this ministry. To that end, we hope that all the churches and all the saints will prepare for this upcoming time of ministry and sanctify these days for the hearing of faith among us everywhere. Please pray for His blessing upon this conference. May it turn out to be a real memorial among us to the shame of God’s enemy and to the glory of God’s grace!
