Join in with Regional Latihans  
From Halimah Polk, National Helper

Many around the country have expressed the need for more group latihan–more spiritual togetherness in our lives.   Often we are isolated –nearby groups are non-existent; often we are no longer travelling in the evenings or our schedule conflicts with latihan time;  often, our group only meets once a week or less.

Call-in group latihans can offer a reasonable solution.   Several regions offer its members a latihan by phone.  These latihans are hosted by the regional helpers and are often quite rich and powerful.

Each of these regions has expressed willingness and enthusiasm for members from other parts of the country to join in as well.  The national helpers are encouraging members who need more latihan in their lives to participate with one of these welcoming cyber groups.  The schedules from different regions are below.

     “If many people pray to God then hopefully God will hear our prayer. That’s why it’s stronger if we pray together. Just as when we do latihan together, we feel it stronger than if we are on our own. That already makes a difference. We feel it even more at large gatherings, we feel God’s Protection more than when we are on our own. We feel this at a Congress when many people do latihan. We feel the latihan is stronger.”  Ibu Rahayu Talk to members Athens, Greece Sep.r 3 2002

  2. If you do not want to call in to the conference call latihan, you are invited to simply do latihan with us at the same time! (Or even before or after…)
  3. Also, some enjoy calling in for greetings at 8:00 pm ET, then hang up to do latihan. You can also call in again at the end of latihan for more extended greetings.
