What is the Full-Time Training in Anaheim (FTTA) Like? Testimonies from Christians Who Have Attended the FTTA

Are you wondering what the Full-Time Training in Anaheim (FTTA) is like? Do you know someone who is going to the Full-Time Training in Anaheim (FTTA)? Are you concerned for them because you’re not sure what it is or what exactly they’ll do there? It’s understandable to be wary of the unknown and our mind can quickly fabricate concepts about things, especially about things we aren’t familiar with. So, it helps to hear from people who have been there/done that.

This is why I’d like to share some personal testimonies from Christians who themselves have attended the Full-Time Training in Anaheim (FTTA).

Testimony #1 from the Full-Time Training in Anaheim (FTTA)

I just wanted to share a little bit about my experience here in the training because it’s super different knowing about it and being exposed to it than it is actually being in it.

Well, it’s everything and nothing like everyone has described it. But I just have to say that I’m really blessed and privileged to be here and I’m really, really happy to be here. I get worried because I’m so behind in the readings and memorizations (story of my life) but the Lord just comes to me to gently remind me why I’m here and encourages me.

Which brings me to one of my top enjoyments. In our first orientation, the brothers shared a lot about the training with us but the main word I took it away from it was open. Sometimes it feels like the training asks a lot of us but actually, they’re just asking us to be open to what the Lord has in store for us. So maybe I can’t be the best memorizer or the best gospel preacher, but I can choose to be open. So when I don’t feel like waking up in the morning, I remember I told the Lord I would be open. When I don’t feel like giving up my study time to clean bathrooms, I remember I told the Lord I would be open. When I get scared to be on campus, I remember I told the Lord I would be open. Giving ourselves to simply be open to Him can go a very long way.

And He has been faithful to remind me of our conversation, and praise Him, I’m still here and everything has been so enjoyable.

Testimony #2 from the Full-Time Training in Anaheim (FTTA)

Some enjoyment from this week! I had my first New Jerusalem class and it was great. There was a real cry among all the trainees that this term the Lord would carry us away in spirit to see the New Jerusalem (Rev. 21:10).

I was impressed with two phrases concerning the New Jerusalem:

The New Jerusalem is personal – Rev 21:2 “And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” The New Jerusalem is not a thing but a person.

The New Jerusalem is something that is for now – In every aspect of the New Jerusalem we see that they are applied to our Christian life. The more we experience these aspects of the New Jerusalem the more we will understand it.

– A.L.

Testimony from the Full-Time Training Extension in Boston (FTTA-XB)

We had some fellowship concerning the vision, person, living, and responsibility of a serving one during our orientation week. One of my highlights is about who we are as a serving one:

“What is a serving one? When the time came for God to call Moses for His move, He did not appear to Moses in a pillar of fire or in a cloud of thunder. Moses’ first vision was a burning thornbush that was not consumed.

This is the essence of Paul’s 14 epistles–an open vessel. God is looking for a thornbush, an open vessel, who would re- ceive Him and allow Him to fill him up. We are thornbushes to carry the divine flame. We should not become proud about ourselves or be totally disgusted about ourselves. Our duty and responsibility as a serving one is to carry that flame and not let it go out. He needs you as a carrier, a vessel. I am burdened in these days to see the Triune God burn within all the saints. It’s not about me or you, but it’s about the flame.”

We’ll be getting into the spiritual blessings to the church in Eph. 1:3-14 this week.

Here are some testimonies written by trainees attending the Full-Time Training in Anaheim (FTTA) regarding their experience and enjoyment in the FTTA.

Dear brothers and sisters, Here is my first update for my fourth [last] term and the term has been wonderful thus far! I hope you all are doing well and I’d love to hear from you soon! Here is a portion of ministry that encouraged me very much this week: “We must realize that any time we spend with the Lord is never a waste. The more time we spend with the Lord, the more we learn, and the more a treasure is accumulated within our being. Therefore, we must continue to pursue the Lord according to a good routine. Such a routine includes morning watch every morning, walking by the Spirit each day, and attending the meetings regularly. In spite of all our failures, we should still keep such a routine, this kind of exercise before the Lord will never be a waste.” – The Experience of Christ as Life, p.129 Every minute we stop to contact the Lord in the midst of all the chaos in our day gives the Lord the opportunity to saturate us with Himself. Oh how refreshing it is to be soaked with the Triune God all the time! Thank you saints for all your prayers and support. Grace to you all!

Here’s another testimony from a trainee in the Full-Time Training in Anaheim:

It’s my 4th [last] term and so far, it’s been the sweetest term. I’m learning more than ever to overcome (moment-by-moment!) my disposition, my preferences and basically, my self. It has helped me a lot to declare the facts in the Word of God. 2 Timothy 1:7 says, “For God has not given us a spirit of cowardice, but of power and of love and of sobermindedness.” Many times throughout the day, I find myself crying out to the Lord and He always brings me back to this verse and I can practice to declare: I am strong! I am loving! I am clear! Can you believe it? The Word of God is living, true and it is a Person! As we eat and digest this Word, it is becoming us and we are becoming It/Him!

What is the Full-Time Training in Anaheim (FTTA) like? Testimonies & Experiences

Are you wondering what the Full-Time Training in Anaheim is like? What experiences do the trainees have in the Full-Time Training? What is it like to attend the Full-Time Training in Anaheim?

First of all, what is the Full-Time Training in Anaheim? It is a Bible Truth and Church Service training program established in 1989 by Brother Witness Lee. This two-year program aims to help seeking Christians grow in the divine life, be constituted with the truths of the Bible, develop their spiritual capacities, and cultivate proper character.

Here are some testimonies written by trainees attending the Full-Time Training in Anaheim (FTTA) regarding their experience and enjoyment in the FTTA.

This term I’ve definitely been enjoying a lot of riches in the classes, especially the second-year classes. In our Life of Service class two weeks ago, I was impressed by the brother’s presentation of the last six words in Revelation 22:3, “and His slaves will serve Him.” We were charged to pray-read these six words again and again because we need to see that this is and will be our status for eternity. The brother reminded us that we’re in the training to get some training and perfecting to do what we should do and that is to serve Him. The following paragraphs are more or less verbatim some points that the brother shared with us.

TO SERVE HIM. We were made for that as an earthen vessel, we were saved for that as a cleansed vessel, and we are being transformed for that as a renewed vessel. In eternity future, even as transformed stones, we will still be slaves. This describes our relationship with God. Today, He owns us with absolute rights over us. We’re not servants, hirelings, or employees but slaves. It’s a paradox but only a real slave to God is a real free man. If this is in you, it will be very easy to know God’s will, because whatever He says, there will be nothing in us that resists and rebels against Him. A slave has no right to do that. We all have to come to that point. As out Master, He has the right to do anything yet as the most free and reasonable Person, God will never force us to do anything. God receives His service from willing, happy slaves. There are no chains except for the chains of love; there are no shackles except the shackles of mercy. If there were cells, they would be cells of grace. “And His slaves will serve Him.”

“A boundless life in Him there is whence doubt and fear are gone.” – Living Stream Ministry, Hymns 473

Please continue to pray for us in the training, for our hearts to be made willing by the Lord to continue receiving what He wants to dispense into us.

Here’s another testimony from a trainee in the Full-Time Training in Anaheim:

This morning I had a fresh appreciation and enjoyment of Philippians 1:19, “For I know that for me this will turn out to salvation through your petition and the bountiful supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ.” What I enjoyed is that the boldness to say “I know that for me this will turn out to salvation,” comes from our willingness to open up to the Body of Christ whatever situation we are in. When we open to the Lord, He sends the supply and He sends it bountifully. But He may also lead us to open to the Body, which allows Him to send us more of His grace. This week I realized that to know the Lord requires me to not only open to Him but also to His members, because He and His members are one! Without knowing the Body, how can we truly know the Lord? Can we understand and experience the breadth and length and height and depth of the knowledge-surpassing love of Christ on our own? No, we apprehend it with all the saints (Eph. 3:18-19)! Oh I praise Him! I love the Lord and I love the Body of Christ! Whatever situation we’re in, it is the this that will turn out to our salvation!
