Testimony and song to share

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: April Erwin

Testimony and song to share

Thank you for service this morning, the spirit was there and it was so wonderful to feel united with our brothers and sisters in the presence and Spirit of Christ.

Your final scripture that used the word repent 7 times prompted Angel and I to share with you the Children's song that we were inspired to write last Communion Sunday. We've been attending services in the afternoon with Mom at the Heritage House with a small but loving Restoration group. They often have guest speakers, and on last communion the speaker was preaching a call to repentance. A call that was shared in love and kindness rather than fire and brimstone (although there are often times for that...). While hearing him preach, Angel was given an Acronym for the word REPENT. After the service, she wrote it down and showed it to me:
Recognize the sin
Entreat the Lord and
Earnestly for
No more

When she showed me the acronym, the first words out of my mouth were, "There's a song in that." I could almost hear the children singing it.
The next morning I got up and while getting ready for the day, the melody and lyrics started coming to me. Soon, Angel and I had finished it together. It was a catchy, fun song. The kind you would learn in Sunday school or Bible school. But the lesson was important and it would help everyone remember the way to repent. We created a video to share with others who might want to learn it and teach other children as well. I posted on Facebook and Youtube and then got busy.

What brought it back to mind and really confirmed it for us even more today, in addition to your scripture, was reciting the Lord's Prayer, where Jesus teaches us to pray, "suffer us not to be lead into temptation". From the very beginning He's been teaching us that not only must we repent of our sin, but then pray earnestly that we won't be tempted again. For Him to grant us strength, yes, but even more, avoidance all together. Angel was even reminded that she was urged to pray this way in her patriarchal blessing years ago.

It was a strong reminder to us, as well as confirmation, that the song we wrote was inspired. I wanted to share the song with you and invite you to share it and the testimony with whomever you feel led, it's there to glorify God. I've attached the video as well as the link directly to youtube where it can be seen. The lyrics are also attached as well as included below. I hope this finds it's home where ever God intends.

Angel and April Erwin

Repent, repent,
Jesus says repent.
This is what it means to me
Recognize the sin,
Entreat the Lord and
Earnestly for
No more
This is how we do
What Jesus tells us to,
So R-E-P-E-N-T
Repent! (echo)

SEAAM News from India and Nepal

From: paul gage

Dear Saints

The Lord is greatly blessing us in our efforts to serve Him. Everything went well with our flights and the Saints greeted us with the wonderful, warm welcome they always share.

The next day we worshiped with the Saints at both congregations in Kathmandu and was a wonderful reunion to see our brothers and sisters again.

The Women's retreat began on Sunday and we had 22 women from both of the branches in Kathmandu. Sheila shared classes on the Book of Mormon and how to teach children the stories of the book.

John Eichhorn and I had classes on the Covenant presented through the Book of Mormon, Christ in America, Sons of Helaman, etc.

The women shared their testimonies and we appreciated the spirit of their worship and devotion to the Lord.
We are now at Pokhara at the Priesthood Retreat.

It was a beautiful reunion as we greeted the India brothers and sisters and those from Eastern Nepal. We enjoyed worship with them today as this is their Sabbath.

It was a momentous day in the Church history of Nepal because we were able to use the copies of the 1908 Book of Mormon that Dil Gurung has spent three years making sure the translation is correct. Praise the Lord!
Love in Christ,
Bob Schrunk

The Trinity of Grace by A. A. Oakman

The Trinity of Grace

Excerpt from a sermon given Sunday, January 14, 1951, at Stone Church in Independence

"This leads us to the cardinal principle governing the prophecy of the kingdom.
If the foundation of Zion is not seen in the lives of men, then there is NO
possibility for the Kingdom. We make this statement with due regard to the
factors involved and feel sure that our judgment will be sustained by
the convictions of the church. The prophecy of Zion is not in a book.
The word is not printer's ink. There can be no kingdom unless Christ
lives in men today. And if the towers of Zion are not seen in the
righteousness of the people of God, then there are
no towers of Zion to be seen. We talk about the good times to come
and speak of the day when we shall dwell in peace and unity and harmony.
But we ought to live as if that day were already here; the only condition
upon which that day ever can be here is that we live as if it were now with us.
The man of faith hopes then, against hope, that sufficient numbers of
mankind will respond to the love of God. He believes this with all his
heart and he lives as if they had already responded. As he does this,
he actually contributes to the coming of the kingdom and becomes a
factor in the divine equation which will help to solve the riddle of the ages.

FAITH - an inward light which shines more bright and clear
as we discipline ourselves.

Hope - the glory of faith, a peculiar quality of spirit which accepts
the hard, unyielding, stubborn facts of man's sin and degradation
and yet sustains the man of faith.

Charity - the understanding of men which sees them as they are and as
they shall be under God, and acts toward them as if they had
already achieved the highest glory.

With this trinity of grace in their souls, those of the early church went
humbly forward "to the borders by the Lamanites."

Have we yet gone to the "border"? Not, of course, to some geographical
location, but to the borders where heaven meets earth, where we shall find
the children of the promise and call them to repentance and life and power
which comes from Christ? How often has the Book been in our hands as
we have journeyed? To the same extent has the vision been in our hearts?
For except the Book of Mormon is used by the church much more than it has
been hitherto, unless it becomes an instrument of power in our hands,
there can be no vision of Zion with its faith, hope, and charity. '

By Apostle A. A. Oakman
Saints' Herald September 3, 1951

Announcement on Haiti

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Bob Moore

Announcement on Haiti

The congregations in Haiti that know about the recent COC decision concerning homosexuality are very upset. The want to stay attached to the Restoration, but want to separate from the COC. Michel Rosier is now pastor of the Petitionville Congregation. It has over 800 members. They left the COC on September 1 and now operate as an independent branch. Michel is well respected throughout all Haiti and believes that 25 congregations could quickly follow his lead. Those branches total at least 5,000 members. Michel is coming here to tell why he left and to ask the encouragement and support of the saints in America.

The meeting will also include current information about church members in Sri Lanka and India who have already left or are in the process of leaving the COC. They total at least 3000 members.

While the saints have found it difficult to work together, partially because we were badly bruised and beaten by the church years ago, now we have a splendid opportunity to work together to keep the International Church together.

Thank you,



Michel Rosier, past church Chief Financial Officer

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Allen Howen

The Women’s Clinic Run/Walk for Life 5K is this Saturday, September 28th. This run/walk benefits the Women’s Clinic of Kansas City, a pro-life pregnancy center in our area that offers support and counsel to women considering abortion. I hope to see you at the run!


Race start time: 8 a.m.
Prize ceremony: 9:15 a.m.

Remember to join us at 8:00 am, September 28th, on the Independence Square as we move our feet together to run (or walk) a 5K in support of the unborn. Each day at the clinic we see lives changed eternally and babies born through the ministry. Together we are making a difference in the lives of families in our community!

We are praying for runners and walkers to join us in raising $40,000 to support our free clinics. This is a GOD SIZE goal and we can't do it on our own!

There is no cost to walk (runners pay a $30 fee if registered in advance, or $35 on race day).

We hope you will set a personal goal or team goal to raise pledges as you walk. This is not a sporting event (unless you want it to be,) but an easy walk that anyone can do. Walk, run, skip or crawl-it's up to you!

Go above and beyond! Get others involved too! Form a Run/Walk for Life team and be the captain or liaison for your church team.

Mother's Milk Request (Update)

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Camille Seever

Breast Milk Needed

Camille and Brent Seever's newly adopted baby, Caden is in great need for breast milk.

Because of the special circumstances surrounding him his little system cannot tolerate formula. Camille has been mixing the two together when she is low, however he does not do well with that either, crying out in pain.

If you can help please phone Camille at (816) 863-0702 or

Thank you so much. 😊


Mother's Milk Request (Update)

My mother very kindly put out a request to help us find breast
milk for our adopted little boy and we have had an outpouring of response. Since Sunday, I have had several come forward to help with donations, including a partial donation of up to 2000-3000 ounces of milk from one. I'll get that milk tomorrow to know for sure. I have several others that are donating smaller amounts and that are beginning to put aside milk for us. We are blessed and eternally grateful.

We were initially looking to adopt our daughter's infant birth-sister. Since my daughter has a milk allergy, I did a plethora of research on homemade formula and trying to nurse on my own. Unfortunately, she passed away. When our son came, it was by the hand of God! He was an unsolicited adoption. He was born 4 days after we found out about him
and 3 days after we met the birth-mother. 3 days later we were given custody and 2 days later he was brought home. We have been in chaos ever since trying to prepare and address his needs. Now that things are calming down I can begin the process needed to help him on my own. It may take a month or more before I can do that. In the meantime, I am overwhelmed and grateful for those that have responded with donations, prayers, encouragement, and advice. What we are receiving should be enough to get us through the next month or more.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Show Me 4 Life Fundraiser
Online Service and Business Product Auction--

Show Me 4 Life is working to collect one diaper/safety pin to represent each of Missouri’s 625,000 abortion victims (Phase 1—Missouri’s Abortion Memorial).

Inline image 1

After the collection has been completed, the pins will be displayed in clear, infant-sized caskets which will be set off in cross-shaped frames (Phase 2—Missouri’s Life Memorial). We want to provide a visual representation of the tragedy of abortion, while simultaneously pointing people to the hope and forgiveness offered through the life of Christ. Upon completion, the memorial will be donated to Missouri Right to Life for use as an educational resource.

With the resources available to bring our current pin count up to 485,000+ pins, Phase 1 is nearing completion, but we still need an additional $790 to finish this portion of the memorial. Estimated expenses for Phase 2 are $6,000+.

In an effort to raise the funds necessary to proceed with this project, Show Me 4 Life is organizing an online service and business product auction. Beginning now through October 8, 2013, we will be accepting applications for those wishing to donate services or business items to this pro-life, Christ-honoring cause. Below is a list of suggested services:

Computer Repair, Photography, Carpentry, Plumbing, Electrical work, Blacksmithing, Web Site Design, Accounting, Tutoring, HVAC, Piano Tuning, Hair Cuts (Barber or Beautician services), Pet Grooming, Yard work, Painting, Typing, Editing, Baking, Sewing, or House Cleaning in teams

If you are willing to donate your time and skill in this endeavor, please visit and submit your application.

Bidding will begin on Thursday, October 10, 2013 and will close on Thursday, October 17, 2013, at midnight (CST).

News from SEAAM

Greetings Dear Saints,

As you may know, the South East Asia and Australian Ministries Board, known as SEAAM, continues to be very active in this part of the world. A missionary team is going to Nepal in mid-September for a month and then on to Australia for two months. The team will consist of Bob and Sheila Schrunk and John Eichhorn. The Schrunks will be going on to Australia.

A team will be going to the Mindanao area of the Philippines where SEAAM has been functioning since 2006. Seventy Richard Neill will be leading this team in late October.

Brother Murray Broughton, from Euroa, Australia, along with his wife, Delma who is Filipino, will be going to the Luzon area of the Philippines, which includes Manila. Brother and Sister Broughton go to Luzon twice a year and they will be there from Oct. 6 to about Nov.6, 2013. The work is growing rapidly in both areas of the Philippines where SEAAM is working.

Brother Murray is once again requesting help in obaining the scriptures and Christian books for the Saints in Luzon. He has requested ten copies each of the Inspired Version, the Book of Mormon, and the Doctrine and Covenants along with 40 hymnals and books for children, in addition to various tracts.

SEAAM was formed in 1998 due to requests from this part of the world. SEAAM was formed within the framework of the Conference of Restoration Elders (CRE). Within the CRE, the SEAAM Board is accountable to the Evangelism Council as well as the CRE.

It should be noted that the SEAAM Board does not have any connection to or affiliation with any factional or missionary group, though there are some of them working in this part of the world.

Currently we are looking for assistance in obtaining materials and mailing costs to send the materials to the Saints in the Luzon area of the Philippines.
We still need nine copies of the Inspired Version and five copies of the Doctrine and Covenants. The copies do not have to be new. The hymnals and other books have all been made available.

You, your family, or branch can help by donating or purchasing the needed scriptures. The IV sells at Price Publishing for $22.50 each and the Book of Mormon and Doctrine and Covenants run $8.50 each.

A big expense, as you might know, is postage. A large flat rate box, with a weight limit of 20 pounds, currently costs $77.95 to send internationally, while a medium flat rate box, also with a weight limit of 20 pounds costs $59.95. It looks like we will have at least five large boxes and two medium boxes to mail.

TheSaints can help in several ways:
You can send a check to the CRE and in the memo line write "Books and/or postage for Luzon Saints."
You can go to some one who has the scriptures and purchase them.
You can donate copies of the scriptures if you have them.

Update on Houston

Update on Houston

Houston is Jim and Linda Crane's grandson and Jamie
Mitchell's(Crane) son
. He was struck by a car while running across a busy street in Independence MO.

My heart is so much lighter now that I know my son can hear and understand me and especially since he can see me. Our road is still long but the burden is much lighter! This has been less than 3 weeks and the progress has been staggering even his doctors are impressed. There is no doubt that the power of prayer and Gods love for us all is what is steering this miracle! Thank you all for you past and continuous prayers and my prayers are with all of you and your families as well!

Independence Square Building For Sale

----- Forwarded Message -----
From: Bruce Luedeman

Dear Saints,

A two story office building is going up for sale soon at 420 S Main Street, Independence MO. At one time it held city offices and it was a Mormon Book store and repository for home school materials. I don’t know the asking price yet.

The building has been the focus of prayer for several years by a number of Restoration believers. A vision was received in 2011 for it to have a special work and ministry to be done in it.

This would be a cooperative project similar to the starting up of CPRS in 1991 but not so large. The building will need funds to update it as well as the purchase price and a group of people who have a heart for this type of ministry.

I am circling this building in prayer for the money to be there to purchase 420 S Main and a group of people who have had a similar vision from the Lord. If you have had an experience regarding this property or mission, please contact me.

Muriel Luedeman

The best part of life is when family members become your friends and friends become family.

O, Lord, bless us richly, let your hand be with us, enlarge our coasts,
And keep us from evil.
I Chronicles 4:9

HELP!!! Anyone with A Log Splitter?

From: pdswayne

HELP!!! Anyone with A Log Splitter?

Our prime source
of heat is wood. We have some but not enough to get us through the winter. I've been told there is wood out there, however:

1. We have no way of getting it here. We have a trailer, but no truck

2. We need to find someone with a log splitter willing to help us get the wood split and into the container

David has been really ill, and cannot arrange these things anymore, nor does he have the strength to work.

I have been hesitating to ask, because I keep thinking it will resolve itself. But with the fall upon us I felt I needed to speak our need.

Thank you.
May the love of Jehovah abide with you.
Shalom b'shem Yashua Ha Mashiach (Jesus The Messiah)

Houston Update

Houston Update - from Facebook 09/04/13

From: Jamie L Mitchell

God is so good, already I can see Gods handy work with my son. Over the past few days Houston has made some real improvements, especially today. My baby is showing real signs of trying to wake up. Today he was making real deliberate movements and he even said "owe" twice this morning. This evening he was scratching his face, trying to touch his head and figure out what happened. We were having a hard time keeping him from pulling out a certain tube that really needs to stay! Most exciting is that he answered me with "uh hu" and "no" when I asked him if he was thirsty and answered "huh?" when we said his name. It was hard to hear him but he said it! God is so good and thank you for all of your prayers and your continuous prayers! It's crazy to get excited over your 14yr old picking his nose but what can I Is good!!!
