Congo testimony from Doug Smith

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Brian Mundy

Great testimony in the DRC. Nelson Mutahi was supposed to come with us to translate for us, but at the Congo border, they would not him in, he did not have a passport, just a travel paper for East Africa. The DRC is not in East African Community, so they would not let him come. Deward took him back across, while Chris and I went on to Dewards home. It turns out that they know French and Swahili, and so we had a ragged conversation with Claudine, Dewards wife. When Deward got back, we finished the amenities, and he asked, "So now, without a translator, what do we do?" We said, let’s have a prayer and try. As we started to talk, my old French started flooding back, and with occasional Swahili and English inserts in the English presentation, we were all amazed at how we were able to communicate the gospel! We had another class the next morning with 4 of the church members, and were blessed again as we read from French and Swahili scriptures.
Deward was not with us for much of the second session, but it did not seem to matter as we shared the gospel of the kingdom. He was actually out getting an ambulance arranged for, because overnight, a Rwandan proxy militia had invaded the DRC, and Goma was the center of the fighting. There were small arms fire and mortars and tanks firing all night long. In the morning, they awoke us early to pray because Claudine was frightened for her guests and family. Chris offered a beautiful prayer that the spirit of fear would be cast out, and for peace, and The Lord answered that prayer. So it was in the peace of that spirit we had the second class, as Deward called some medical friends to have them send an ambulance that we could ride in to the hospital, where we would have a secure place to stay before they try to get some papers signed by a doctor to get us through the military patrols without them seeing us. Apparently, the military do not see whites as anything but looting material. Aggrey Anditi also called the state department friends he had, and they said they would follow up with us, too.
We had another prayer before we left on the ambulance, and then took off across the lava field that passes for roads in Goma. Along the way, we also picked up a real patient. We made it to the Lhopitale Kyeshero, but they did not think it was safe enough to proceed to the border, about 8 km, so we stayed there overnight. In the meantime Eric was able to get us the number for the US embassy in Kinshasa, and we talked to Andy Wimkleman, the associate consul. (On the initial call, the screener asked me what our difficulty in getting to the border was. I said small arms fire and mortars just before we lost the connection, and got a call back fairly quickly.)
They called the Unesco mission in town, but they thought we would be safer in an ambulance than with them! Not very popular, I guess.
The border closed at 6, and the embassy report was that there were 2000 people at the crossing, so they did not want to leave us exposed, so we spent the night in the hospital ward. Deward stayed with us, and were able spend the time in classes and discussion with him about the work, and The Lord blessed us in that also.
So this morning we were able to go the border, even though the Rwandans had closed it, because the US Rwandan embassy folks were there to expedite our entry. A nice young man named Jason had been there since 7:30 waiting for us, and we did not get there until 9:00. We were also useful, too. Jason debriefed us together information about what was happening on the other side of the border, and was determining who might be in charge by what stamp they were using. He said the main battle had moved west to Bhukavu, a port that the Kinshasa embassy folks had suggested we try to pass through if we could not make it there. We were blessed we didn't try!
It turned out that The Lord was there every step of the way. If Nelson had gotten through, he would not have gotten back across the border. The Lord blessed our sharing, even without a translator, we were able to meet with the Congo saints for the first time in the Congo, we had much needed time with Deward, and The Lord brought us safely across the border, Mission Impossible style, and taught us lessons in trust in the meantime, as well as answering the prayers of those who were praying for us!
God is good!

Thanksgiving Dinner for Westport Mission

----- Forwarded Message -----

Thanksgiving Dinner for Westport Mission

I know this is extremely short notice. I started working on this a couple of weeks ago and life got in the way.

Heather Atkins would like a church group or individuals to provide Thanksgiving dinner for the mission she works with in Westport on Thanksgiving Day.

She and her regular staff will not be available, but the building will be open and facilities to have the dinner inside rather than doing sack lunches on the sidewalk.

If you are interested in organizing this project call Heather at 816-510-3344 or email her at for details.

A Watchman's Call

Hello Precious Saints,

Since the election I have noticed on several social media sites that God is apparently trying to get the attention of His Church. Watchmen, positioned on the walls around His Kingdom are calling out to disillusioned and disappointed saints. Below is a call I received this morning from a precious sister, Elizabeth Brickman, and I felt led to share it with you. Please feel free to share with other parts of The Body as you feel led.
(from a fellow Christian)

November 7, 2012 --- "The Day After"

The results are in. Our nation has bowed to the false God of “government”.

Realistically, the electorate has merely confirmed the composite idolatry and arrogance that had already blinded our national consciousness. Fueled by sloth and jealousy, and stirred by a leader of questionable origin, Americans --- for the next four years --- are now going to experience the consequences of their choice.

I do not believe this election was an electoral battle. It was a spiritual battle.

Yet we did not catch God by surprise. He knew yesterday’s results long before we did. And He knew why He would allow it. He knows what His plan is for the future. As Henry Blackaby says in his book, “Experiencing God”, maybe we should get on board with God’s plan, rather than suffer over why He doesn’t appear to be on board with our plan.

The nation has dipped its toes more deeply into sin. As with most sin, the wry irony is that we are unlikely to experience negative consequences quickly or dramatically. But when they come, the false reverence Americans gave to their elected leader will be replaced by bitterness and disappointment.

At that exact moment, we, the “spiritual electorate” will need to be there, well- prepared, armed and ready to love and to lead. Ultimately, when America repents and returns to God, I believe we will see a breathtaking show of His mercy and grace toward our nation.

In the meantime, what about now? I offer a humble 10-point strategy for your consideration:

1. FAITH: Demonstrate what faith looks like before a faithless nation, including your neighbors. Intentionally model the disciplines of Hope --- not fear. Peace--- not despair. Compassion --- not anger.

2. JOY: Choose joy. The joy of the Lord is our strength. Our path and destiny are ordained. If we are emotionally no better off than the world, what does that say about our God?

3. OFFER COMFORT: Especially to secular conservatives who already knew that something was terribly wrong, expressed their vote, and now are in despair. Imagine the impact of this election without the comfort and hope of the Lord! Secular conservatives and others will need our composed confidence, steadiness and cheerful testimony right away!

4. GOVERNANCE: The most local of governments is the governance of our own homes and lives. We do not presently have Christian leadership in the White House. But we can have it at our house.

5. READINESS: Be ready to explain the hope that is within us. We need to stay in listening mode, extra sensitive to opportunities around us. Those who have trusted government as their god will need us at the moment when grown-up disappointment begins to replace childish “hope and change”.

6. ANXIETY: Reject anxiety! It is not coming from God! Our temptation may be toward anxiety and worry. This would delight the one who seeks to destroy the confidence of God’s elect. Without faith, it is impossible to please Him. There is no place for worry or anxiety in our lives.

7. SAFETY: Live as one who feels safe, not panicked. We are safe and secure, spiritually and financially, in His extravagant care. God knows how to provide for us. If we take fearful or extreme actions, financially or otherwise, we send a terrible message to the world that our God is not safe to trust.

8. LEADERSHIP: This election was a call-to-action for each of us, to take responsibility for leadership in our own families, workplaces, and communities.

9. BIBLE STUDY: We must ruthlessly eliminate “busy-ness” from our lives, and insist on making time to “Study, to show ourselves approved unto God, a workman who needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth”.

10. UNFAZED BY MEDIA: Now is a time for us to stand apart confidently, in the magnificent grace of God. We must be unfazed by media which seeks to hype the extremes of arrogance on the one side, or fear on the other side.

We are fine. It is the world who is on unsteady ground --- not us. The world’s unsteadiness must never bleed over to our mind, our emotions, or our lives.

Our God reigns!

Sweet Cat to be adopted

Tiger is a sweet, about one year old cat that needs to find a home. Our neighbors can't afford to feed him and have let him roam loose. We have been meeting his needs except for shelter. Since we already have 3 cats, we cannot keep him and he needs a loving home soon. Cold weather is starting to set in. He has not been neutered but his temperament is good. He gets along well with other cats and dogs.

Items for sale

Items for sale

A dear friend of mine purchased a "Jazzy select GT" power chair some time ago. She bought it "lightly used" but realized she liked her current chair the best.

She is asking $700 or best offer. The booklets and battery pack are included. If interested, I can send actual pictures by attachment.

She also has a Heat Surge Fireplace (2012-2013 EV.2 Light Oak Roll N Glow with LED insert) available for $300.00. (It is still in the box!!)

Rather than pay to send it back to the Amish Carpentry shop, she is willing to take a loss on it.

Please feel free to e-mail or call me at 816-220-0730.

An Exegesis of the Priesthood
by Gomer T. Griffiths

Ek' se je' sis is a scholarly explanation or interpretation.

Gomer Griffiths was a apostle in the RLDS Church from 1887 to 1922.

The 18 chapters in this book include material concerning the Melchisedec and Aaronic priesthoods, their authority and officers; duties in quorums; the apostles, seventy, patriarchs, high priests, elders, bishops, priests, teachers, and deacons; the "pilot wheel" with the presidency in the center and spokes for missionary, pastoral, patriarchal, bishops, and high council, etc.; and instructions to the priesthood.

This is a reprint of a book which was originally published about 1902. It has a soft cover and is spiral bound. It has 154 pages. It is new and in shrinkwrap. The regular price is $10.00, but this month it is available for only $7.50 with the purchase of another book at the same time. Offer good until November 30, 2012, or while supplies last.

Order by e-mail to or by phone—816 210-8450.
