2020 International Thanksgiving Conference

To the churches and the saints in the Lord’s recovery:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Living Stream Ministry will again modify the format for
the upcoming 2020 International Thanksgiving Conference. The conference will no longer
be held in Boston, MA. Instead, Living Stream Ministry will host this conference completely
online, in a way similar to the 2020 International Memorial Day Conference. We also hope
that through the help of the churches there could be online prophesying times by localities
after each streamed message. Included in this letter are details about this global online
ministry conference. Everyone who receives this letter should feel free to distribute it to
other saints in the churches.

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!

Message Schedule:

All the messages of the 2020 International Thanksgiving Conference will be streamed
beginning at the following times in each locality’s time zone:

Schedule for U.S. churches
Message 1: 7:00 PM Thursday, November 26, 2020
Message 2: 10:00 AM Friday, November 27, 2020
Message 3: 7:00 PM Friday, November 27, 2020
Message 4: 10:00 AM Saturday, November 28, 2020
Message 5: 7:00 PM Saturday, November 28, 2020
Message 6: 10:00 AM Lord’s Day, November 29, 2020

The published meeting times are for your time zone, not for Anaheim, CA, USA
(unless you are in the same time zone as Anaheim). LSM will stream the message
meetings, time zone after time zone, across the globe. Thus, the saints in your locality
do not have to figure out what time each message will begin based on your time difference
from Anaheim.

Conference Details:

  1. Viewing the messages: The website for streaming the conference messages is
    conf.lsmwebcast.com. This site does not require an account and will be accessible to
    all the saints and churches to download the conference outlines and run a test video
    on their devices, beginning Friday, November 20th. 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 your
    schedule (listed above). 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 PM 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
    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, once the 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.
  2. Online Prophesying: After each ministry message we encourage all the saints to
    join an online prophesying session in their time zone, which we hope will promote the
    blending among the churches. We encourage the responsible ones in the churches to
    arrange prophesying sessions for their localities. Smaller churches are encouraged to
    combine for prophesying. LSM will not provide any online prophesying groups or
    facilitate the arrangement of prophesying groups.
  3. Translation: Messages will be streamed in English, Chinese, Spanish, Korean,
    Japanese, and Portuguese. Some additional languages may also be included.
  4. Hymns: There will be at least 1 hymn for each message. The streamed meeting will
    begin with the first hymn. Verses will be displayed on the screen with piano
    accompaniment so that the saints can sing along with the hymn. Following the hymn,
    the message will begin.
  5. Message availability: The conference website will be deactivated on November 30th
    at 11:59 PM (23:59) in your time zone. All conference messages will be available for
    purchase at www.lsmwebcast.com thereafter.
