ATI E-mail Update
ATI e-mail update forwarded to me.
Dear ATI Families,
We would like to thank you all for your prayers for the Big Sandy Training Conference. We have been hearing many reports of how families were impacted by the powerful messages that were shared. The conference speakers were outstanding! Several seasoned ATI parents presented keys on how to raise children who will remain faithful to the Lord. Dr. Gothard spoke on the rewards of memorizing and meditating on Scripture, and included presentations by individuals who have memorized large portions of Scripture. Testimonies were shared by several individuals who have experienced severe trials, and have seen God's faithfulness in the midst of tragedy. All families were welcome to join in the First Year Family training which was presented by Dr. Gothard and Phil and Diane Bowman. The sessions were very practical and inspiring for families with children of all ages. (For a review of the Big Sandy Conference, please visit www.ati.iblp.org/events/trainingconferences/gallery05/.)
Plan now to attend one of the 2005 Regional Training Conferences! There is still time for your family to experience the inspiration, fellowship, and refreshment of a Regional Training Conference. Join us at one of the following conferences:
May 31-June 3, 2005 in Nashville, Tennessee
July 5-8, 2005 in Sacramento, California
August 9-12, 2005 in Indianapolis, Indiana

As we prepare for the Nashville Training Conference, we would appreciate your continued prayer support. Please consider the requests below as the Lord brings them to mind.
Wednesday, May 25
Please pray that the city of Nashville and surrounding areas will be protected from evil influences, and that the conference will benefit those in the community. Pray also that the weather next week best accomplishes the needs of the attendees.
Thursday, May 26
The publications team at Headquarters is preparing many of the resources that will be offered to the families. Please pray for wisdom, efficiency, and safety as they prepare and transport these materials. Pray that vehicles and equipment will function well, and that these resources will have a lasting impact in the hearts and homes of those who use them.
Friday, May 27
Please pray for Dr. Gothard as he prepares for the conference. Pray that each attendee will be encouraged with a special message from the Lord that will impact their future decisions.
Saturday, May 28
A major topic for the Nashville Conference is using our kingdom authority in Christ to disable Satan's work. Obviously, Satan is trying to stop this message however he can. Please ask the Lord to do something great in each life and protect the people, facilities, and equipment from interference.
Sunday, May 29
Please pray for safety, encouragement, and strength for the ATI staff as they plan, and for the Nashville Training Center staff as they finish preparing their facility. In the midst of final preparations, pray that each person will honor the Lord's Day as He directs them.
Monday, May 30
Please pray for the staff traveling to Tennessee today, and for all equipment to work as the video team preserves the messages given this week for future use. Pray that hearts would be cleansed for the Lord to work freely.
Tuesday, May 31
As families travel to Nashville today, please pray for safety, family harmony, and circumstances that will prepare everyone for a good week. Pray also for the staff as they coordinate last-minute details. As the sessions begin tonight, pray that the Lord will work in each heart in a powerful way.
Wednesday, June 1
Today's sessions address marriage harmony, hearing a child's heart, Scriptural foundations for education, and conquering fears. As ALERT Cadet, Pre-EXCEL, COMMIT, Children's Institute and WINGS programs begin today, pray that team leaders will have wisdom and sensitivity to work with challenges that arise, and that each child will benefit from this week.
Thursday, June 2
Today, please pray that the Lord will use the messages of Dr. Karl Coke, Dewey Novotny, and George Keller to bring about world-changing results. Pray also for the musicians who are ministering throughout the week, and for mothers who have young children with them.
Friday, June 3
On this last morning of the conference, pray for continued strength for each family. Please pray for Dr. Gothard and others as they present insights today on showing love to offenders, meditating on Scripture, and using kingdom authority. As the student choir sings tonight and the conference concludes, pray the Holy Spirit will prompt total surrender in each heart and that relationships will be restored.
Saturday, June 4
Praise the Lord for His blessing on the week! As the families and staff return home, pray for safe travel, time to reflect on lessons learned, and that God will be glorified in new and greater ways through each life!
