----- Forwarded Message -----
From: Judi Faunce


SCRB SUMMER COED VOLLEYBALL LEAGUE

Even though we are having to start later this summer we have six teams that have committed to playing in 2020!  They are:

Elephants
Old Dogs/Young Pups
GrAy team
Narwhals
Mixed Nuts
Blue Angels

We plan the first night to be Friday, June 26th and we will play through the rest of the month of June and July!

I will be completing the game schedule this weekend, so please contact me immediately if you want to be added.

There will be no fee this summer and no mask requirement.  Being outdoors we feel you are more likely to be safe, but that it is your choice when playing or watching.  We would ask you to bring your own hand sanitizer or wipes and do not attend if you have a cold or a temperature.

Lets have fun and fellowship with great sportsmanship and cooperation!  Looking forward to seeing everyone!

CRE Leadership Testimony on Calling for a Solemn Assembly

From:  William (Vim) Horn


CRE Leadership Testimony on
Calling for a Solemn Assembly

On December 27-28, 2019, the Chairman of the Conference and the Coordinating Council of the Conference, set aside a 24-hour period to pray and fast in order to seek the direction of the Lord for the Conference planning of the year 2020.  On the morning of December 27, a dream was received that brought counsel to this group of men that the Lord desired to call a Solemn Assembly, in accordance with the instruction given in the book of Joel, chapters 1-3. 
After considerable prayer and discussion there was common consent amongst the 7 men present for the call of a Solemn Assembly.  One member was absent and endorsed this call later.

In the intervening months there has been continued fasting, prayer, discussion, and study.  It is our testimony that the call for a Solemn Assembly has been so directed by the Lord, and confirmed by the Holy Spirit.

-         We believe this call to assemble together is for all people, of all ages, in harmony with the passages in Joel, 2:16-17.
-         We believe this call to assemble is for all who are part of this gospel founded in 1830, and fully reorganized again in 1860.
-         We believe this call to assemble is for all who are willing to repent and come unto Jesus Christ.
-         We believe this call to assemble is for all who will share with a broken heart and a contrite spirit (D&C 17:7b).
-         We believe this call to assemble is for all who will seek for God’s purpose in their life, and have a desire to ‘spread the gospel of the kingdom unto all nations’ before the end shall come.
We now invite each of you to prayerfully consider and prepare your hearts to gather in a solemn assembly this September. For now, we ask that you simply keep the time period of September 20 thru September 27 available as a possible timeframe.

Further details concerning the solemn assembly are not available at this time. However, we will be discussing the Solemn Assembly at this year’s Conference and with other groups, and will begin sharing more details in July.
CRE Chairman – William (Vim) Horn
CRE Coordinating Council – Richard Neill (Chair), Jack Hagensen, Steve Kropp, Tom Mitchell, Brian Mundy, Mark Nunn, Howard Parker (Members)

Dream
12/27/2019
Seventy Richard Neill
Early on the morning of December 27th, 2019, I had a dream.  I believe the dream occurred around 5 AM just before awaking.  I arose before 6 AM and I could still recall the dream in detail.  I went to our dining room table and wrote the experience down.  This is my experience.
I was in a large body of people.  The size of the room was like the size of the CPRS auditorium.  I was aware the room of people were excited because the room was filled with the Spirit of revelation.  The Spirit restrained those who would prophesy and not be of the Spirit of the Lord.  I do not know how long the dream lasted.  Since I was an observer I only know that I was watching and feeling the excitement as well.  
As I was watching I was directed to look at the book of Joel in the Old Testament to have a better understanding of what was taking place.  (I read from Joel after the dream ended)
Joel 1:14-15     "Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land (the church} into the house of the Lord your God, and cry unto the Lord.  Alas for the day! for the day of the Lord is at hand..."
Joel 2:15-16     "Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly; Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts; let the bridegroom {Christ} go forth of his chamber, and the bride {the church} out of her closet."
Joel 2:25     "I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten..."
Joel 2:28-30     "And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: and also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my Spirit.  And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth..."
Joel 2:32     "And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered; for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call."
Joel 3:16-17     "The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake, but the Lord will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.  So shall ye know that I am the Lord your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain; then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more."
As the dream continued I was now sitting at a table.  There were men of understanding at the table.  I clearly saw my son, Andrew, not as he looks now as an adult but like when he was 8 or 9 years old.  His face shined with a brightness, and as he looked at me he had a bright countenance and a smile on his face.  I then woke up from the dream.
As a matter of observation.  I knew during this entire dream that I was having a spiritual experience.  The words of Joel call the people to repentance.  I cannot adequately explain how I felt during this time.  I had feelings of great excitement but also feelings of trepidation.  The excitement was for what the Lord wanted to do.  The trepidation was whether we would be up to the task of doing it.  I tell you I was feeling much more to that we are ready.

FASTING AND PRAYER FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD - June 5

​---------- Forwarded message ---------
From: Paul Gage


FASTING AND PRAYER FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD - June 5

FASTING AND PRAYING FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD

The High Priests of the Restoration Branches as well as many other groups and branches have asked the Saints to observe each Sunday as a day of fasting and prayer. There are many reasons for asking the Saints to fast and pray. The ultimate objective, however, is for the return of Jesus Christ in His Glory and the establishment of His Kingdom (Zion) on earth.
Jesus is our chief example regarding fasting and prayer, as he fasted and prayed often, as indicated in the scriptures. In our efforts to grow spiritually, we always hear fast, pray, and study. So, what is fasting?
We understand "fasting" to be the practice of deliberately abstaining from food for spiritual purposes. Fasting is a means by which a believer brings his body into subjection. Fasting breaks down the barriers in man's carnal nature that stand in the way of the Holy Spirit's omnipotence. (All powerful) Pray about fasting before you start and plan your program.

In your fasting and praying efforts, carefully read the prayer of Jehoshaphat in II Chronicles 20, Daniel in Daniel 9, Enos 1; Moroni's challenge in Moroni 10:27-31; Jesus in John 17 and Joseph Smith Jr. in Church History  Volume 2 pp. 38-44.

Especially note Daniel 9:3. Prayer, supplications, fasting, sackcloth and ashes. Five is the number of grace.
We are one week closer to Christ's return than last week. Stay strong and hold fasting to the Rod of Iron.

Saints, keep up the great work!
God bless each of you in this time of trial and assist you in your efforts to come unto Him.
Paul Gage






Cancelation of CMRB Reunion and Camps

From: Eric English


Cancellation of CMRB Reunion and Camps
 
Saints –
It is with a heavy heart that the Central Missouri Restoration Branch pastors met tonight and decided to cancel our Reunion beginning tomorrow on 6/6 as well as our remaining youth camps for this summer. This was not an easy decision and came after much prayer and deliberation.
During our Older Youth camp this week, a camper exhibiting no symptoms was notified that they had a positive test result for Covid-19. This test had been conducted as part of routine preparation for another procedure and not based on known contact or symptoms. The camper was immediately sent home and all campers and staff were notified and have been asked to self-quarantine for 14 days.
All who have registered and paid their registration fees online will be contacted and refunded their payments. Details will be posted on our website at www.odessahills.com
The CMRB camping committee is evaluating alternative options for youth ministry this summer and we will share more regarding any opportunities for that as they develop. We will also continue to monitor these developments for the potential to reschedule the Reunion later this summer in some form.  We have reserved the last week of July or first week of August as potential dates for that and will make a final decision on 6/20.
We continue to pray for the Saints during these times of difficult trial.
In Gospel bonds,
The CMRB Pastors



Looking for Rental home in the Jackson Co area

From: Alec Davis


Looking for Rental home in the Jackson Co area

My wife Sara and I will be returning home for my job as I have been reassigned to Kansas City! That is an answer to over a ten year prayer for myself and many. My report date is August 2, 2020, but it is possible for me to begin earlier. Our house in Springfield, Mo is currently under contract, closing July 10th. We are looking for a house to rent while searching for a home and provide our contact information, or would you forward this email?
 
There are several unknowns to both my job and where Sara will actually be working. We would prefer renting in the Jackson County area, but are open to other options within the KC metro. After our return and during renting, the goal is once we figure out how work will look, to be in the position to move quickly when the right house comes on the market. That being said, flexibility in a lease would be ideal, but understandable if that is not an option.

We would be interested in a 2-3 bed and 2 bath house. Due to the nature of my employment and the reason for my return to KC, the location/crime in the area of the house will make a difference as far as what we can live around, and a minimum of a 2 car garage is needed for similar reasons.

We are excited to make the return and look forward to seeing most likely many on your distribution list! Any questions or information, please contact either Sara or myself at the following:

Alec Davis
816-419-8618
alecd85@gmail.com

Sara Davis
816-686-3916
sndavis467@gmail.com

Also, I already feel bad for asking this but in light of everything we have going on for selling/packing/moving, and with the current state of the country and my job, I would ask that contact of anything other than housing would wait until our return. We both have a lot on our plates right now and are unable to keep up with everything at this time. Thanks.

Thank you in advance. We know God is preparing the way home for us!

Alec Davis
