Honduras Man Needs a Wheelchair

From: Bob Bunch

I do need your help on a matter

There is a gentleman in Honduras who is in desperate need of a wheelchair. He is 101 years old and without any funds to purchase one even if one could be found there. I am looking for someone who has one and would be willing to donate it for him at no or little cost. When I find one I will have to pay a considerable amount to get it taken down. I can be contacted at or by phone at 816-461-6998 or 816-462-3306. He is my wife’s grandfather and his name is Rogelio (the g is pronounced as tho it was an ‘h’). He could use some prayers in his behalf as well. Another relative there, my wife’s niece, could use your prayers, too. She is a very sweet little gal only six years old, but is having terrible pain due to a cyst on one eye.

Prayers for my sister

She has just been moved back to North Kansas City Hospital. She has been in the hospital since Nov 10th. Has had a blood infection and still has an infection in the aortic valve in her heart which even after 6 weeks of strong antibiotics targeting this, it has doubled in size. They (the doctors) are looking at many options including possible heart surgery.

I will keep you posted as to where things go next.


please pray for family

his one is quite sad. The gentleman in the accident was a close friend of my daughter and son-in-law. Could you put this out for others to remember his family in their prayers? He left behind a wife and 2 kids both under 10

Help for Karmi McCune

Dear Saints,

Muriel and I visited with Karmi and Ron yesterday. She was in good spirits and has faith that God is working in her life. However, they are under quite a bit of financial stress. Ron has been unable to work for a month. Since he is self employed, that is a huge burden. He has been by Karmi's side since the middle of November and will continue to be as long as he is able.

She has made it through one round of chemo and begins the next one tomorrow. I know many of her friends and family would like to help but just don't know how. Prayer is a mighty way to help. And this is a way to be involved and bless them in a financial way.

Let's show them our love and support by taking one burden off of their shoulders.

Update on Debbie Tiffey

Dear Church family, thank you so much for your prayers!

As of late last night, we were informed that Debbie sustained minor injuries and is possibly going to be released from the hospital today.

Also, James Bullard arrived safely in Omaha about midnight, and is now with his wife Elise and other family members.

The accident occurred near the Tiffey's home town of Logan, Iowa, as they were westbound on highway 30. An eastbound car driven by a 74-year-old woman, also of Logan, crossed the center line and a head-on collision resulted. Both Debbie and the other woman were taken by ambulance to the Creighton University Medical Center in Omaha. We do not know anything about the other woman's condition, but prayers for her are certainly in order.

Continued prayers for the Tiffey family will be much appreciated.

God bless,
Charlie and Susan Booth

Current Events + Revelations references = possible End Times?

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

Re: Current Events + Revelations references = possible End Times?


I do not know how many saints are aware that George Njeim, a President of Seventy, identified where we were in the Book of Revelation. It is contained in his book Insights Into the Book of Revelation, published in 1970. He was no longer President of Seventy at the time, but wrote it at the request of other seventy who wanted the membership to share in his vast knowledge of the subject. The RLDS Church refused to publish the book, so Brother Njeim published it himself. A few years later, the Herald House carried the book on consignment, but eventually (I do not remember the year) stopped selling it and told him to retrieve his remaining copies.
Brother Njeim pinpointed where we are in the sequence. It is Rev 16:12 “The sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water there of was dried up, that the kings of the east might be prepared.” He explained that this meant that the barrier preventing the “kings of the east” from attacking Israel (and America) was beginning to “dry up” and that when it did, Armegeddon would happen. He downplayed the role of Mohammadism as he called it, but he was looking through a 1960s lens.
He does not specifically state in his book that the world was at that point in the prophecy, but I heard him say that several times in the late 1960s and 1970s. I think that he announced it to his entire quorum of seventy. Since 2001, we see how the terrorists from that area are increasing in power. I believe that one of the unclean spirits is Islam. We can also see that the “way is almost prepared” and the dreadful conflagration is looming directly ahead.
I wanted to let you and perhaps the saints know that the church had wise men who understood the Book of Revelation and taught members what they saw coming. The last book on prophecy printed by the church was in 1946 and written by Elbert A Smith. It was Revelation: A Study in Prophecy. I also want to point out that Brother Njeim understood that the some of his interpretations were different than past church teachings and tolerated those who interpreted them differently. One was his interpretation of the two witnesses. Another was the name who number was 666.

Gard family Gofund

From: Cara Smith

Gard family

The Adam and Tana Gard family had their home broken into on Friday. Since that time we have been collecting money for their family through a gofundme site. Here's the original message that was sent out in response to requests for how to help. We have reached our original goal, but will keep the campaign open through Christmas and wanted to get the word out to others who wanted to share. Would you mind sharing this information with your list serve? Thanks.

My first response when I heard that the home of Adam and Tana and their five children had been robbed was anger and then disappointment that one more bad thing had happened to this family. But those feelings were quickly replaced by a sweet spirit and the thought that God uses all things together for his good.

This site was created in response to a number of inquiries I received as to how to help the Gard family. If you would like to help Adam and Tana replace the stolen items, or contribute to a happy Christmas, please visit

While Adam and Tana would be the first to tell you money and posessions are not what brings happiness, we all know they are necessities when raising a young family. Help us wrap our virtual arms around the Gard family this Christmas and show that the love of many speaks far louder that the evil actions of a few.

Brother Garland,

We know so many pray for the saints in Africa and the missionaries that go forth in His name. Below is an email I received from Elder Eric Odida. Here is a great example of how the Lord watches over his servants and how the gospel is spreading by the local priesthood. Thanks you all for your prayers!

Romans 8:28 We know that all things work together for good to them that love God and to them who are the called according to His purpose.

On Tuesday December 9' 2014 Elder James Yogo from Nairobi Kenya left Rwanda for Uvira DR Congo. He was to meet Priest Deward of Congo for a follow up missionary trip to Kalemi in DRC. Deward was delayed and did not meet James as planned. The following day James boarded the ship at 6 am for Kalemi without Deward ( his host) who was still away. James travelled safely to Kalemi and arrived on Thursday 11th Dec. with about 200 other passengers.

Priest Deward who was expected to board the next ship on Thursday Dec. 11th was again left behind by the ship. He arrived at the port late and therefore could not board. He ended up spending an extra day at Uvira port waiting to board the next ship on Friday the 12th. Unfortunately the ship he missed sunk before reaching its destination Kalemi. Many l​ost their lives, we are yet to confirm the number but it is said to be over 100. Had Priest Deward boarded the ship, he would probably have died.

He joined Elder James two days later shaking from what had happened ahead of him. He had lost time but The Lord preserved his life. The testimonies of their experiences in DRC are encouraging. Elder James just got back this evening after spending 3 days traveling on the road.

God bless you all who remember those on missionary fields.

Joel Olsteen New age Occult teaching in the church

​From: ​Fern Smith

Joel Olsteen New age Occult teaching in the church

To be truthful, I just didn’t have the stomach to listen to all this video. It is the truth…we are hearing a gospel that is not truth…not of the scriptures…but not everywhere. Our pastor has had sermons regarding these men spoken of – warning us of their false doctrines. We may not be the mainstream, but how wonderful that we are not.
The scripture quoted here says it all very well…it is a accurate picture of what is happening in our world today. Every week they have a map of all the earthquakes around the world… I count them, and there is rarely less than 6 or 7 and many of them in USA… or effecting our hemisphere. Yellowstone National Park is alive with activity never seen in our lifetime, or for hundreds of years…Vapours of smoke are reported in this same report and map of world. Whole rivers have fish dying … many strange things like is mentioned in this scripture quoted by Sandra. People that don’t notice these things have closed eyes…Those of you who think Olsteen is such a encouraging preacher, should listen and investigate where he gets his ideas for sermons. You may not listen to him, but maybe you know someone who does and this is an opportunity to be learned and to warn others.

Do we want to be so dull of hearing and not knowing what is happening around us? Please take a few minutes out of your life and listen and see for yourself. Listen to some of the Olsteen video Sandra has given you the address for… just click on it…
You will forever be thankful you did…and your life will be richer because of it. You will thirst for what is the fullness of the truth, and not the words that are lulling you to sleep till it is too late.
God bless each of you. He loves you so much that he has given you a way out of what we all deserve.
He died, that you might have life, and not just any life, but life abundant. Read his word daily.

​​From: Sandra Stevens

Joel Olsteen New age Occult teaching in the church

Do you really think he is so very innocent Fern? Do you think his teachings are simple happy uplifting and positive for your life. Anyone who thinks this does not understand the Gospel of Christ or the Doctrines of our Lord. What ever happened to pick up your cross and follow Me? Or if they hated Me they will hate you? How have we become so very watered down that we would think there is anything good about the false teaching of these positive preachers such as Osteen and Meyer and so many other. My heart is grieving for the church. We need only look to the Bible and BofM to see how we must be "be holy as He is holy". Let us search ourselves for anything that is unpleasing to the Holy Spirit who lives in us.
Mormon 4:36-43 "Yea, it shall come in a day when the power of God shall be denied and churches become defiled and shall be lifted up in the pride of their hearts, yea, even in a day when leaders of churches and teachers in the the pride of their hearts, even to the envying of them who belong to their church. Yea, it shall come in a day when there shall be heard of fires and tempests and vapors of smoke in foreign lands, and there shall also be heard of wars and rumors of wars and earthquakes in divers places. Yea, it shall come in a day when there shall be great pollutions upon the face of the earth; there shall be murders and robbing and lying and deceivings and whoredoms, and all manner of abominations, when there shall be many which will say, "Do this or do that and it mattereth not, for the Lord will uphold such at the last day";
But Wo unto such for they are in the gall of bitterness and in the bonds of iniquity! Yes, it shall come in a day when there shall be churches built up that shall say, "Come unto me and for your money you shall be forgiven of your sins." O ye wicked and perverse and stiff-necked people! Why have ye built up churches unto yourselves to get gain? Why have ye transfigured the holy word of God, that ye might bring damnation upon your souls?"
Verse 47-54 "But behold, Jesus Christ hath shown you unto me and I know your doing, and I know that ye do walk in the pride of your hearts; and there are none, save a few only, which do not lift themselves up in the pride of their hearts, unto the wearing of very fine apparel, unto envying and strife and malice and persecutions and all manner of iniquity; and your churches, yea, every EVERY ONE have become polluted because of the PRIDE OF YOUR HEARTS. For behold, ye do love money, and your substances, and your fine apparel, and the adorning of your churches, more than ye love the poor, and the needy, the sick and the afflicted. O ye pollutions! Ye hypocrites! Ye teachers which sell yourselves for that which will canker! Why have ye polluted the HOLY CHURCH OF GOD? Why are ye ashamed to take upon you the name of Christ? Why do you not think that greater is the value of an endless happiness than that misery which never dies, because of the praise of the world? Why do ye adorn yourselves with that which hath no life, and yet suffer the hungry, and the needy, and the naked, and the sick and the afflicted, to pass by you and notice them not? Yea, why do ye build up your secret abominations to get gain? And cause that widows should mourn before the Lord?

If this doesn't describe what is happening today then I'd eat my hat. Read the whole chapter and you will see just what is happening today. Yet there are those among you that would justify a little sin or a little error. Those of you who would say it makes no difference because we will be taken up and Raptured because we are better than that. Oh how blind are so many today. God is calling us to REPENT, Turn away from this false teaching. Shun these false teachers and don't call them good or of God. They do not preach the God of the Bible. They teach another Jesus one who has not power. One who has given everything to the power of mankind. One who as Kenneth E Hagin said "can't do anything unless we speak it". WHAT?!!! He was preaching a different Jesus. We need to wake up and try to wake up others. We must not look on sin with the least amount of allowance. We must first be sure our own lives are cleaned up. We are to judge rightly. see John 7:24, 2 Tim 4:2, Titus 2:15. 1 Cor 2:15, James 4:3-4, 5:1'3.

“Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment. John 7:24”

“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.” 2nd Tim. 4:2.

“Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; (v. 12) and “These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.” Titus 1:12 & 15.

“Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is THE ENEMY OF GOD.” James 4:3 &4.

​Wanted to Provide Childcare

I am looking to provide childcare for 2-3 children on a full time basis as an opportunity to stay home with our eight month old daughter. My husband and I are members of the Parkview Community of Christ Church in Blue Springs and my husband works as a Firefighter/EMT in the area.

My home is located a mile north of i70 off Lees Summit Rd, near Drumm Farm in Independence. We live in a quiet neighborhood and have two parks in walking distance. Our home is smoke free. We do have a cat that is very friendly and is completely declawed.

Piper (our daughter) loves playing with other kids. Past work experience includes working as a gymnastics teacher for 6 years to children ages 2 to 10.

My family lives an active, healthy lifestyle and we love outdoor activities. I will provide healthy meals and snacks as well as fun crafts, games, books and the occasional field trip.

Childcare days would be Monday through Friday. Hours are negotiable depending on the parents’ schedule. I charge $30 per child per day.

From Facebook

Clayton and I talked about doing an update just the other day and thought we would wait until after the special prayer service on Sunday. I would like to say that he had a complete healing and was able to get up and walk. However, that was not the case. He says he felt a peace, a physical strengthening in his legs and feels like God accepted the fasting and prayers and this will be the start of many changes. I felt free. I suppose that I should say that I felt the burden lift, but in all honesty I just felt light and free. Don't know what all that means, but when we were at PT today, his left ankle moved one time for the first time since all this happened. We do feel like we have been greatly blessed. We know that all of the prayers on our behalf have been helping tremendously. I could not do what I am able to do without the blessings from God. We are so appreciative of all the help, prayers and friendships. It is very humbling to know how many people are praying and truly care about what happens in our lives when there are so many needs out there. I wish each of you many blessings from God and a very Merry Christmas.

Love, Clayton, Glenda, Jacara, Sara, Andy & Bethany.

​Update on Kenya Missionaries ​

​I talked to Doug Smith and Eric Odida today and they asked me to post an update. Perhaps Joy and garland could also send out an email. Anyway the youth retreat in Kenya is going very well with 160 in attendance. They were able in only one day to travel to Nairobi, go to the embassy getting new passports and back to kisumu all in time for the retreat to start. In fact the next day a neighbor found Riane Thomas passport along the road. This was a huge blessing because it had her captains license in it. Thank you all for your prayers!!!! Truly we worship an amazing unmatchable God!!!!​

Kenya missionary prayers needed

I received a message from Eric in Kenya in regards to our 4 missionaries there. Please pray earnestly for them. Here is what I received

Have the saints keep prayer vigil for the missionaries. Doug and the ladies were attacked by a team of 6 thugs as Elder Tom Okeyo drove them into our compound at about 8:30 PM. They were not physically hurt but their laptop , 2 phones, $200 and Kshs. 400 were stollen. The biggest loss was Judi and Raine's passports. Doug and the ladies had to travel to Nairobi today to get the ladies traveling documents. But we were soooo very blessed overall. Unbearably so. Lucas was not with them at the time. All of them are well and in good spirits .

Over 100 youths have reported for Youth camp today. God bless and love to you all.

​This is Doug and Judi Smith, Raine Thomas and Lucas Boyce.

Monday Update On Karmi McCune

After a scary weekend with Ron taking Karmi to the ER with severe vomiting and her heart stopping, and the doctors starting it up again, she was transported to Truman West to stabilize her with IVs of potassium, magnesium, and calcium. Saturday Karmi was much improved, though still weak. A central IV line was inserted rather depend on the slower IV through her hand, to get more electrolytes to her heart faster. I spoke with Ron this morning. The doctors are so pleased with her improvement in her heart and electrolyte levels they can now schedule the colonoscopy. Ron says Karmi is not out of the woods yet, so keep praying.

Restoration-Trivia - Haun's Mill


What was the name of the person from Wisconsin that establish a Mill in Caldwell County, Missouri in 1835–1836 , and what historical event took place at his Mill?

Jacob Haun (Hawn) was not a member of the Church, when he moved his family from Wisconsin, to established a mill on the Shoal Creek of Fairview Township, Caldwell County, Missouri in 1835–1836. However, by October 1838 there were approximately 75 Church families living along the banks of Shoal Creek, about 30 of them in the immediate vicinity of Haun's Mill and the blacksmith shop. It was there that the massacre known as "The Haun's Mill Massacre" accursed. The massacre took place just a few days after Missouri's governor, Lilburn Boggs, issued his infamous Extermination Order, most historians have now concluded that the militia unit had neither the time nor the opportunity to have received news of the order. Although the militia involved in the massacre was led by Colonel William Jennings, Sheriff of Livingston County.

At the time of the attack it consisted of 240 men from Daviess,Livingston, Ray, Carroll, and Chariton counties and included prominent men such as Charles Ashby of the Missouri state legislature and Thomas O. Byron, Clerk of Livingston County.

The threat posed by the growing strength and animosity of the Missouri militia caused considerable concern among the Church settlers at Haun's Mill. They held a council on Sunday, October 28, and decided to organize a defensive force. 28 men were armed and held in readiness against an attack. That same evening, one of the militia groups sent a representative who negotiated a truce with the settlers. Monday the 29th and most of Tuesday the 30th passed without incident.

On October 30 at approximately 4 p.m., the militia rode into the community. David Evans, a leader in the community, ran towards the militia, waving his hat and calling for peace. Alerted to the militia's approach, most of the Latter-day Saint women and children fled into the woods to the south, while most of the men headed to the blacksmith shop. Unfortunately, the building was a particularly vulnerable structure as the widely spaced logs made it easy for the attackers to fire inside. The shop became a deathtrap, since the militia gave no quarter, firing about one hundred rifle and musket shots into the building.

After the initial attack, several of those who had been wounded or had surrendered were shot dead. Members of the militia entered the shop and found ten-year-old Sardius Smith, eight-year old Alma Smith, and nine-year-old Charles Merrick hiding under the blacksmith's bellows. Alma and Charles were shot (Charles later died), and William Reynolds put his musket against Sardius's skull and blew off the top of his head, killing him. Reynolds later explained, "Nits will make lice, and if he had lived he would have become a Mormon. Seventy-eight-year-old Thomas McBride surrendered his musket to militiaman Jacob Rogers, who then shot McBride and hacked his body apart with a corn knife. Several other bodies were mutilated or clothing stolen, while many women were assaulted. Houses were robbed, wagons, tents and clothing were stolen, and horses and livestock were driven off, leaving the surviving women and children destitute.

By the end of the massacre at least seventeen Church members were dead: Hiram Abbott, Elias Benner, John Byers, Alexander Campbell, Simon Cox, Josiah Fuller, Austin Hammer, John Lee, Benjamin Lewis, Thomas McBride (78), Charley Merrick (9), Levi Merrick, William Napier, George S. Richards, Sardius Smith (10), Warren Smith (44), and John York. Thirteen more had been injured, including a woman and nine-year-old child. A non-Mormon sympathizer was also killed. Three of the 250 militiamen were wounded, but none fatally. After the massacre, the dead were placed in an unfinished well and covered with dirt and straw. The survivors and their wounded gathered at Far West for protection. After the massacre, Philo Dibble stated that "Brother Joseph had sent word by Haun, who owned the mill, to inform the brethren who were living there to leave and come to Far West, but Mr. Haun did not deliver the message." Of the matter, Joseph Smith recorded, "Up to this day God had given me wisdom to save the people who took counsel. None had ever been killed who abode by my counsel." Then he recorded that innocent lives could have been saved at Haun’s Mill had his counsel been received and followed. It appears that Haun had received the direction to relocate to Far West from Joseph Smith and did not convey this direction to any of the others at Haun's Mill.

Although participants in the massacre boasted of their acts for years, none of the Missouri attackers were ever brought to trial, and the Latter Day Saints' efforts at receiving justice in the Missouri courts failed.

Through 2012 the grounds of the massacre are maintained as a historic site by the Community of Christ. In May 2012 it was announced that the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints had acquired the property from the Community of Christ. The church had also acquired the Far West burying ground from the Community of Christ.

Know your history,

it defines who and what we are!

Philippines starts evacuating residents ahead of typhoon Hagupit

MANILA (Reuters) - The Philippine government on Wednesday sent food and medical supplies to central provinces on the path of a category 3 typhoon, with many of them still reeling from devastation brought by super typhoon Haiyan late last year.
Residents of coastal villages and landslide-prone communities were told to move to government-designated evacuation areas, as typhoon Hagupit (Filipino for lash) barreled towards Eastern Samar province in central Philippines with winds of up to 140 kph and gusts of up to 170 kph.
Hagupit is currently hovering over Palau islands and is expected to pick up strength before hitting eastern Philippines on Saturday. Tropical Storm Risk forecasts Hagupit will become a category 4 typhoon in 36 hours.
"Definitely we will now strictly enforce forced evacuation," said Jerry Yaokasin, vice mayor of Tacloban City in central Philippines.
"We have no more excuse, we have gone through Yolanda, and to lose that many lives, it's beyond our conscience already," he said, referring to typhoon Haiyan which left more than 7,000 dead or missing in November last year.
Tacloban City, worst-hit by the strongest storm ever to make landfall, accounted for more than half of the dead from Haiyan. Nearly all of the city was either flattened or damaged.
While Hagupit is weaker than Haiyan's 250 kph winds, it is expected to bring 3-4 meter high storm surges, topple houses made of light materials and uproot trees, said officials at the state weather bureau, adding there was a 75 percent chance the typhoon will hit land.
"We are on a worst (case) scenario," Landrico Dalida Jr, deputy administrator at the state weather bureau Pagasa, said at a media briefing, adding there was a 25 percent chance Hagupit may veer north and miss Philippine coasts as it heads to Japan.
About 20 typhoons strike the country each year, most hitting the north along the main island of Luzon.

Jan Fountain created it over the last seven years of scripture study, placing verses under the headings of the the Epitome of Faith statements. (See the attached scanned copies of the cover and Introduction). The calendar was printed for gifts for Jan's family and friends hoping the calendar will serve as part of their daily devotions. For Jan and her family, the Epitome of Faith defines and recalls the “faith of our fathers”. Jan hopes this compilation of scriptures from all three books of the Restoration will honor the Lord and increase belief and participation in the "Great and Marvelous Work" among men.

Prayer Request for Gina's Grandson in Australia

From: Gina Krieg

Prayer Request

My grandson, Seth Hummel, (12years) is in Adelaide, Australia Children's hospital, in a serious condition.

He was operated on, late Saturday night, for a burst appendix.

The family would appreciate prayers for Seth's healing.

Thank you,
Gina Krieg

Please Pray for Karmi McCune

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Janice Altschul

​Please put Karmi McCune's name out for prayers also?
She just found out she has stomach cancer.

Thank you


From Karmi's daughter Esther

Yesterday evening my dad took my mom to the ER. If any of you know my mom, Karmi McCune, you will understand the severity of this situation for her to ask to go the the hospital. She has not been feeling well for the last 4 or 5 months because of digestive issues and most recently not being able to keep food or liquid down. She has been very weak and at times even faint.

After 8 hours in the ER, a cat scan, an EKG, and other tests the results Do Not look good. She will be going in for a colonoscapy on Tuesday to determine if the blockage/mass can be removed. She was excessively low on potassium so they gave her 200 mg 3 separate times. Today she has been able to eat more and I feel like the potassium has made a difference. BUT the reality of it all is cancer in her colon and possibly her liver.

My mom is only 56 years old. With your prayers and God's help she will be around for another 40 years to 50 years. Physically, emotionally, financially, and spiritually my family needs a miracle. So tonight I am asking you all to join us in prayer that my mom be blessed.
