Holocaust Survivor Peter Loth Speaking at Waldo

The man Peter Loth, that is in the video will be speaking as Waldo Restoration Branch on Saturday, October 6, 2012 at 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Dennis' Aunt Betty Edgar has invited him to speak about his experiences.

Peter Loth was born in a Nazi concentration camp during World War II. He survived his first 16 years in the ruins of communist Poland following the war. There, he endured loneliness and the horrors of abuse in a politically unstable area. Peter's move to "freedom" in the United States brought only pain as he encountered hatred and racism in the early 1960's. Peter's life is a powerful account of survival and forgiveness. At one point, he found refuge in Lafayette County.

CERT Training

CERT (Community Emergency Response Training) classes being offered in Independence in September. This is offered through the city of Independence. Through CERT training, citizens learn basic emergency response skills so they can aid themselves, family, friends and others without placing themselves in unnecessary danger. This can prepare for potential disasters in a way that will make you prepared and ready rather than a victim – and help others who can’t help themselves. As Christians we need to be willing and prepared to help others.

This is an excerpt I appreciated from the book When All Plans Fail by Paul R Williams:

Even without doomsday prediction, terrorism and tornados, flooding, fires and droughts – we need to plan carefully for everyday emergencies. The secret is to live one day at a time. LIVE in the NOW but PREPARE for the FUTURE.

This is true spiritually as well as physically. We are told not to fear, no matter what appears on the horizon. This can happen only when the Prince of Peace, Jesus gives us His peace. The peace He offers is not like anything the world knows. It is a peace that can keep one calm in the very midst! This peace is available to all true believers – those who place their trust in Him.

If you have any questions on this class please contact Frank Goetzfridt 816-813-3154 cell or

Book of Mormon taught at Pentecostal College

----- Forwarded Message ----
From: Lynn Ridenhour

Dear Pastor,

A wonderful door of opportunity has opened. I’ve been invited to teach a class this year in restoration history and the Pentecostal experience at Faith Bible College, a Pentecostal bible college, located here in Independence, MO. Classes start soon. This has great potential to build bridges of understanding between Bible-believing Christians and Book of Mormon Christians. I, of course, ask for your prayers. I thought I’d share an outline of this semester’s syllabus.

Lynn Ridenhour (Baptist minister who preaches out of the Bible and the Book of Mormon).


Taught by Lynn Ridenhour, PhD (Baptist Minister)

Faith Bible College

Independence, MO

(Class begins Sept 13th , 11:30 – 12:30)


The Restoration Movement began in the early 1800s. And the movement began in America. What was the spiritual climate in most American churches during that period? The movement was part of the “primitive gospel” movement sweeping America at the time. We’ll examine that period in American history.


When God gets ready to move in the earth, He always chooses a man (or woman) to create a move of God. For instance, He chose Martin Luther to lead the reformation, John Wesley to lead the holiness movement, and William Seymour to lead the Pentecostal movement. Each move of God has its leader. The restoration movement was led by Joseph Smith. We’ll take a look at the man.


Unlike other moves of God, the restoration movement brought forth a book translated by its leader, Joseph Smith. We’ll take a look at the book—the Book of Mormon—its claims and its core teachings


I tell my Pentecostal/Charismatic friends, the great outpouring of the Holy Spirit in our day did not begin in 1900 out west in California on Azusa Street. It began in the Midwest in a little town called Kirtland, Ohio, sixty-four years earlier! The year was 1836. Most of my evangelical friends have never heard the story of the great outpouring that accompanied the early Saints.


At the core of the restoration movement is the belief that America is a land “choice above all others,” set aside in these last days to be an “Ensign” (or sign) to the nations. The Old Testament patriarch, Joseph, son of Jacob and Rachel, was promised “the land of Joseph,” as his birthright, according to restoration theology. That land, “choice above all others,” is America, and was given to Joseph and his descendants as an inheritance. We’ll take a look at the Doctrine of Last Things known as the Endtimes, according to restoration theology.

Looking to Expand - New Location Needed

I currently operate a gun range inside of an old lime stone mine in the Kansas City metro area. It is not open to the public and is set up as a training range for local fire arms instructors. I need to expand the operation and cannot do so in the currant location. If some one has an unoccupied and undeveloped mine or cave on their rural property in the general Kansas City metro area please get in touch with me. I have contacted other developed cave sites in the area and, understandably, they don’t want a noisy gun range in proximity of their other clients. An old ware house with poured concrete walls may also work depending on location, square footage, and cost to rent. My contact information is below:

Did Jesus Condemn Homosexuality ?

"As it turns out, yes, He did. As a matter of fact, He spoke very clearly and directly about the issue. Let me begin with Matthew 19:4. Here Jesus is answering a question from the Pharisees regarding divorce. However, his answer is very telling concerning the entire issue of sexuality, the purpose of sexuality, marriage and the proper form of marriage. Here are the words of Jesus:

“And He answered and said to them, ‘Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning “made them male and female,” and said, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh”?’” (Matthew 19:4)

Here Jesus upholds creation, male and female sexual relationships (in marriage), male and female marriage, procreation as a part of male and female marriage, and the sanctity of male and female marriage and sexual relationships. His answer is a blanket ignoring (thus condemnation as perversion) of anything outside God’s standard for sexuality and marriage. This truth cannot be legitimately explained away."

The Restoration trivia question for today shouldn't be to hard for most... But if you didn't know the answer before you read this trivia question, you'll know it now.

The question is ; Who was "ELIJAH ABEL" and what was so special about him?

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO LEARM MORE ABOUT "ELIJAH ABEL," And his role in the early church...

Verified by:

Elijah Abel (1810-1884)
First Black Elder
Personal Friend of Joseph Smith
Builder on Kirtland, Nauvoo, and Salt Lake Temples
Family Background
Born July Washington County, Maryland. Married Mary Ann Adams; they had eight children, two sons who also served as Elder's in the Church.

First Black Elder
March 3: 1836 Elijah was ordained an elder—the first black man to hold priesthood office in the Church of Jesus Christ. At the time of his ordination, he was given a patriarchal blessing by Church Patriarch Joseph Smith, Sr.: “Thou has been ordained an Elder. … Thou shalt be made equal to thy brethren, and thy soul shall be white in eternity and thy robes glittering: thou shalt receive these blessings because of the covenants of thy fathers.”

First Black Seventy
December 20: 1836 Elijah was ordained a member of the Third Quorum of Seventy in Kirtland, Ohio. His ordination was certified in Nauvoo. In 1902 President Joseph F. Smith recalled a seventies meeting held in Utah on March 4, 1879: “Bro Elijah Able [sic] gave an outline of his history and experiences during a period of forty years. Of his being in Kirtland. Of his appointment and ordination as a Seventy, and a member of the 3rd Quorum. He related some of the saying of the prophet Joseph who told him that those who were called to the Melchisadec Priesthood and had magnified that calling would be sealed up unto eternal life.”

First Black Missionary
Listed as a “minister of the gospel” in an 1837 Messenger and Advocate, Abel served missions to Canada and New York in 1838, and another mission to Ohio shortly before his death.

Mormon Wars of 1838

Kansas City (MO) Public Library / Central Library

Author Brandon Kinney talks about his book, The Mormon War: Zion and the MissouriExtermination Order of 1838. Hediscusses the causes of tension and conflict between the new and rapidlygrowing Mormon community and earlier Missouri settlers. As a result of the three-month war, anestimated 10,000 Mormons were forced to flee east to Illinois.

Something all Joseph Smith believers should watch to know what is currently being taught.
