Blessing and Recovery

Dear Friends.

Thank you for your prayers. On Wednesday I had heart sugery to put a stent in one of my heart arteries. What led to this was officially considered a heart attack. One artery was 97% closed with only a pin prick sized opening for blood to be sent through the artery. The surgery was successful, and there was no damage done to the heart. I came home on Wednesday, and I am able to do many things already. God blessed me through the whole experience, I knew He was with me. He comforted me.

I prefer to focus on this season and Jesus Christ. May you all have a Spirit-filled Christmas, blessed with love for family, and loved ones.

Merry Christmas from the Neill family. Amen.

God Bless,
Your Brother in Christ,
Richard Neill

REUNION CHANGE OF DATE

Dear Friends,

More details will be available in the Winter Issue #100 of the
"Tidings of Zion", due out around mid-January, 2012.

For questions, etc. please contact any of the following:

William "Vim" Horn, Chairman, CRE hornw@umkc.edu

Restoration Branch Family Reunion and Elders Conference
Change of Dates from June 10–15, to June 24–29, 2012

As you may be aware, the Pastors of Zion (POZ)
and the Conference of Restoration Elders (CRE) are sponsoring a combined Reunion and Elders Conference in 2012.

We published in the last issue of the Tidings that the Reunion would be held at theCenter Place Restoration School (CPRS)/Waldo Restoration Branch from June 10through 15, 2012.

Recently we became aware that we had inadvertently scheduled the reunion for thesame week that our brothers and sisters from South Chrysler Restoration Branchare holding their reunion. It was our intent from the outset that the Restoration Branch Family Reunion and Elders Conference not compete with otherreunions. For this reason, we are rescheduling the reunion from the week ofJune 10 through 15, to the week of June 24 through 29, 2012. The location willstill be at the Center Place Restoration School (CPRS)/Waldo Restoration Branch.

We apologize for any difficulties this change may cause those who had alreadybegun to plan for the original date. We hope they will still be able to attend.

We look forward to the opportunity for worship and fellowship that this Reunion and Elders Conference represents. We believe that this Reunion will be a wonderful opportunity for the Saints to draw close to the Lord and to each other. We invite all Restoration Branch Saints and Priesthood to consider participating.

Send a Christmas Card

This year a friend of ours is helping a woman who lives in Joplin. She is divorced and has no children. She lost everything in the tornado, including her place of employment. She has been sleeping on friends' couches for the last few months, however, she is now in the process of moving into her new apartment. She told me that every Christmas, she would decorate her apartment with Christmas cards that she had received and how much she loved them. All of her cards were lost in the tornado. When asked what she needed for Christmas, the only thing she asked for was for people to send her Christmas cards this year, so that she could decorate with them. We asked her permission to give out her name and address so that we could send her cards and she said that would be fine. So, if you have a chance, would you send her a card so that we could make her Christmas a little happier?

Austin Update

We want to thank everyone for their prayers, concern, and support and want to give you an update. Austin, unfortunately, is still in ICU at KU Med in an induced coma. On December 1, a portion of his skull was removed to allow room for the brain swelling. Today the doctors found an unknown anthrax-like infection inside his skull. He is on three antibiotics now and the lab is growing cultures to find out what exactly the infection is so they can treat it properly. They believe the infection caused, and is causing, the blood vessels to constrict which may have brought on the stroke. There are a lot of questions with very few answers. Right now, the recovery from the infection is the main focus. Please continue to keep Austin, his parents, and his doctors in your prayers.

Thank you,
Shane and Summer Robinson

DIANE ANDERSON LUDY MUSIC

Introducing

DIANE ANDERSON LUDY MUSIC

Original Music Based on the Inspired Version,

Book of Mormon, and Doctrine and Covenants

This is a new website featuring some of the nearly 100 songs that Diane "Dee" Anderson Ludy wrote during more than 20 years of teaching at Sionita School. The curriculum included Scripture study and introduced a verse from each week's reading, which the students were expected to memorize. Dee began composing melodies for some of the verses, which the students learned rapidly. Even years later many were able to sing what they had learned as children.

Most of her music was written with young people in mind, but much of it is also appropriate for adults. Music has a unique way of helping us all learn. Some of it has been used by soloists and small groups.

Please check out
DianeAndersonLudyMusic.wordpress.com for the initial selection of Dee 's songs. Feel free to copy and print the songs that will fit your needs. Try them for your own enjoyment and for use with homeschoolers, children 's choirs, vacation church school, camps, reunions, etc. Additional songs will be added to the website from time to time, so check back frequently.
