From Francis on the Woodbine Restoration Reunion

From: Francis Harper

From Francis on the Woodbine Restoration Reunion

Dear Ones,

The Woodbine Restoration Reunion of the Saints held near Little Sioux, Iowa

concluded on Saturday, July 27. Many felt this was the best
reunion held since the beginning in 1989; twenty-six years
ago. Attendance set a new record at 227 registrations.
Donations exceeded expenses by a little more than $5000.
Donations at the dining hall exceeded expenses by $1100. We
have never collected offerings by passing the plate during
the services. The Saints place their donations in a box
placed in the sanctuary for this purpose. The offerings
exceeding the expenses are used in the further development
and maintenance of the camp facilities.
I believe the best measurement of the success of a reunion
is determined by the number of lives turned toward
Now that reunion is over, we must beware of the
“post-reunion letdown.” During the interim,
between reunions, we will have many opportunities to prove
ourselves as God’s elect, or as nominal Christians
only. During the next twelve months we will be tested in
many ways.
The Lord challenged his people long ago when he said:
“Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that
there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now
herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open
you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that
there shall not be room enough to receive it” (Malachi
Our unchanging God challenges his Saints today to be so
faithful and fruitful in all their stewardships that the
windows of heaven will be opened to pour out his blessings
in such abundance that there shall be scarcely enough room
to receive them! Let us accept this wonderful challenge.

Love to all,

Francis Harper

Sign Language classes

Sign Language classes

New Sign Language Classes, new location!! Classes will be at South Chrysler Restoration Branch 16101 Salisbury Road, Independence, MO. 64050 in the conference room. There will be signs showing you where to go.

Sign language classes are now open for students and adults. Wednesdays from 2-3pm, 3-4pm and 5-6pm.

Cost is $5 per person per week, due either weekly or monthly.

Class time 2-3pm
This class is for returning students who are working on their 2nd semester for credit.

Class time 3-4pm
Are you struggling to find a foreign language that your young adult will actually use? A language that is fun, engaging as well as beautiful? So why not try sign language. This class will be from 3-4pm and last for 16 weeks each semester in which at the conclusion you or your child will have a full credit to put toward a foreign language that is needed to graduate. Colleges all over the US are now accepting this beautiful language as a full foreign language. More and more employers are also looking for applicants who know sign to hire. I use a curriculum from that includes quizzes each week and cumulative tests after each 5 lesson block.

Class time 4-5pm
If you have ever wanted to just learn something different well nows your chance. Sign language is proven to enhance your brains ability to learn other things faster. Sign language gives babies and toddlers a voice long before they learn to talk for themselves. It also improves their language as well as motor skills. This class will just be vocabulary using practice with each other, learning songs and playing games.

If you are interested in join my classes please email me at or you can call me at 816-914-1577 voice or text.

Melissa Scott

I have taught sign language for over 25yrs after my interpreting career (15yrs) I took to teaching as it gave me such joy to see the look on faces after they learn new signs.

Book of Mormon Message

From: Robert Maley

Book of Mormon Message

Is the primary message of the Book of Mormon a revelation of the ethnic origins of Native Americans; the location of the Narrow Neck of Land; Nephite Geography; End Times prophecies; Archaeology, the building of the New Jerusalem; organizing a church; the Gentile debacle? While the Book does have something to say on each of these issues, they are not the MAIN thrust of the Nephite Record which is the Word of God and Personal Righteousness. From cover to cover these two are the commanding theme throughout. But ‘religious’ people don’t like the word “Repentance” too much which engenders guilt feelings and makes us squirm a bit. Nobody likes to ‘confess’ or to admit having been misled into ‘dead works’, or vain and foolish doctrine. Consequently, we tend to skirt around the subject and hurry on to more sensational interests and in the process deny ourselves the redeeming richness of the Plan of Salvation the Book of Mormon contains.

Clayton Foss Update - July 25

It is probably time for a new update. We were so overwhelmed and humbled at the response of the fundraiser on Sunday night. It was so good to see so many friends in one spot. We wish we could have gotten to talk to each one of you personally. Thank you for your support and prayers. And no, I haven't dialed up his foot lately!!!! (Clayton shared a story at the fundraiser about how he lost his phone and Glenda called it so they could find it. They had purchased some extra large shoes for Clayton for rehab, so since Clayton has no feeling in his feet, he did not notice that a phone had ended up in one shoe until it started ringing. He said I think my foot is ringing.)

We were both pretty tired out the next day, but it was good to see what we could handle. We went to church Wednesday night at Chilhowee. It was good to be back, but I am going to have to make sure I get a good nap in that day. With our 4:30 am wake up time and a once up in the night, I don't do well with 10:30 pm bed time. Am glad to be home where it works to take a good afternoon nap. We have now had two weeks of PT through home health and will probably do two more. We are getting our routine down and he is able to stretch out quicker with a little less pain. We haven't noticed any more new muscle movement or feeling, but it comes so slowly it is hard to tell from day to day. We would welcome visits. Best times are mid morning (9:30 -11:00), late afternoon (3-5 pm), or early evening (6:30 - 7:30). These are approximate times, but people have asked. We may have home health here on the morning time and once we start driving to PT three times a week, obviously our schedule will change. Sunday is the only morning time that wouldn't work and Wednesday on the evening time. He remains positive and determined to keep working those muscles. I don't think give up is in his vocabulary. We wish all the best to each of you and pray that you are being blessed abundantly.

Clayton Foss update - July 18, 2014

Hello Everyone, I wish I could contact each of you personally, but my time seems very limited at this point. We are trying to establish a routine for home along with get the house set up better for Clayton to do things in. We have had many offers of help and appreciate each one. Clayton and I have found that we just need to sort through and get rid of many things. Unfortunately we can only do that for ourselves. I have let a lot of things accumulate that I really don't need. I hope that I don't sound like I'm whining and complaining. It feels good to get things cleaned out. We went to the Dr. in Holden (who will be our primary care Dr.) yesterday. We like him and feel like it is an answer to prayer. Glad to find one under our insurance plan so close to home. The car transfers/ride went well. We went through the bank drive up and then came home. He was tired out, but it was better than the week before when we came home from rehab. Home health is coming in with PT, OT and a nurse. We will probably have them about a month before we venture out to out patient therapy. Then we will be on the road three times a week. I think Clayton has more muscle movement than he did a week ago. His feeling of touch is about the same, but sometimes it is hard to remember what may be new when it happens so slowly. His attitude is still great and we hope we can witness to a new set of people on this part of the journey. It has been very humbling to hear the stories of how he has touched peoples lives by the attitude that he has had throughout this ordeal. We continue to be grateful for the blessings that we have received, for the prayers and the good friends who have encouraged us and pitched in to help in whatever way they can. We are planning being at Colbern Road Sunday night. Have a very blessed day and weekend.

With love,
Clayton and Glenda.

Dwight Garmin is in violent dementia. He cannot walk very well and falls a lot. He is a very big person, so his wife Connie has to call the Fire Department to pick him up. Sometimes he gets a knife and wants to cut wires in their car, and also threatens her. She needs prayers and strength.

Also, pray for Lyle and Linda to have a good life together. They are both beautiful Christians.

God bless,

The Middle East Problem

The Middle East Problem

Published on Apr 28, 2014
The Middle East conflict is framed as one of the most complex problems in the world. But, in reality, it's very simple. Israelis want to live in peace and are willing to accept a neighboring Palestinian state. And most Palestinians do not want Israel to exist. As Dennis Prager explains, this is really all you need to know. In 5 minutes,

Very important video:

Clayton Foss - Update July 12

It was a long day in getting home and we were really tired. Have more things than I thought that need changed. Mostly moving furniture around and getting rid of stuff. Until we have time to get a different house antenna for our cell phones, if you really want to get a hold of us, you need to call our home phone. We aren't ignoring you if we don't text back or call back, we just aren't getting them like we did in the hospital. We are going to have to figure out a new schedule that works for us here. We scheduled everything around therapy when we were at rehab. I have more things pulling at me that need done and can't focus completely on Clayton. It will probably take us some time, but I'm sure that we will get there before we know it. Thanks for all the support and prayers. Have a blessed day.

Dea​r Saints​

Our VBS program begins July 28. As a part of that week, we will be doing a service project for Soles4Souls. They are a 501(c)3 organization that collects shoes (and clothes) to give to the needy all over the world. We will be collecting shoes - new or gently worn - and would like to invite you to participate. If you could take a few minutes and look in your closets for shoes you don't need anymore, I would be happy to collect them.

I will be coming up to KC this weekend, 7/12-7/13, and then again 7/19, to bring Jacob and Joel to youth camp and then to pick them up. So I would be available to take your contributions.

You can go on their website,, and watch a video or read information about what they do. Below is a link to the tax receipt form that you can fill out for your income tax purposes. You would want to keep track of how many pairs you donate and their condition.

Thanks so much for considering the poor!

I praise God for all His blessings, and know He desires the very best for us all...knowing our needs before we know them ourselves.

For this reason I hope you all who are able to come can attend this special event. Because you are all precious to me (and I know much more precious to the Lord) I know we all are much more fulfilled when we are obedient to the ways of God.

I am looking forward to this lecture this coming Friday July 11 at 6:30 pm, because Paul is so good at getting us all grounded in scripture - it is not what we is what the Lord thinks. I know you will appreciate Paul's passion for the Lord and what is being taught by God on marriage

Be blessed,

Clayton Foss update - July 8, 2014

Hello Everybody.

We had a team meeting with all of the therapist, dr's, etc that we work with today and we have a release date of this Thursday. We are excited and wondering how things will go. It will be nice to be home. We both feel ready and it is a little daunting. He had a good nights rest last night and his appetite is coming back. He had quite a bit of stretching this morning. He worked on getting over curbs this afternoon. Friends are working on making some changes to the house tomorrow and so we should be all set. Have a blessed evening.

Clayton Foss Update - July 7

Clayton is feeling a little better this morning. He did feel like eating supper last night and breakfast this morning. Thanks to all the visitors that stopped by yesterday. It was very uplifting and the prayers that we shared were very much appreciated. I believe they are being answered. We meet with the wheelchair geru today to see what he would recommend for Clayton's needs. Megan is back from her classes and we are happy to be working with her again. Take care and have a wonderful day. This is the day the Lord hath made, rejoice and be glad in it.

Introducing One aChord!

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Lynn Ridenhour

Introducing One aChord!

“They did break forth—all as one—in singing and praising their God.” (3 Nephi 2:78)

Our historic youth choir has a new name—One aChord! we love it.

The choir sang at the recent Pastors of Zion reunion held at Waldo Restoration Branch Church here in Independence. Attached is a short video of One aChord singing “Fairest Lord Jesus.”

We’re so excited about the choir which is made up of young people from all the various restoration groups; i.e., LDS, CofC, Restoration Branches and Remnant. We’re planning concerts around the KC metro area, as well as out of state. And eventually, the plan is to tour Europe.

We’re so very blessed to have a great leadership team: Lynn Ridenhour, Kristopher Taylor, Joy Cain and Muriel Luedeman.

We still have openings for singers. If you’re between the ages of 15 and 35, we welcome you. And invite you to sing with us. Being a member of the choir is a great way to meet new friends, have fun, and minister the love of God. Contact Kristopher, our choir conductor: 816-929-5042. The choir practices at Living Hope Restoration Branch church located at 2425 S. Crysler Ave in Independence. Practice is every Thursday evening from 7 to 9. One aChord will make its debut appearance at Stone Church in November.

We encourage you, be a part of this historic choir.

Clayton Foss Update - July 5

We had a great day yesterday. Our trip to the park went well. The roses were beautiful and it was nice to be outside. It is a lot of work for him to get in and out of the wheelchair to the car, but it gave us a good idea of what it will be like to do it day to day. We got lunch at Winstead's and were ready to come back for a rest after an hour and a half. Jacara, Sara and Marj spent the majority of the day with us. The Simmons family brought us a fourth of July picnic and we ate until we were stuffed. We had a panoramic view of the fireworks and stayed up a little later than usual to watch. I woke up extra early and so have already taken a nap. We have therapy before too long. The girls should be here soon and we know we are going to have several bunches of visitors today. Clayton is maintaining and continuing to keep a great attitude. We hope you all have a blessed day.

Trailer update

From James Noland

Greeting Saints,

We have received $850 toward our goal of $3000. It as our hope that we can receiving the other $2,150 by the 15th of August.
Your support will be used to our very best efforts to build up the Kingdom Of God on earth.

There is a great need to procure a 6’ x 10’ enclosed travel trailer for hauling the “Life After Death” booth from place to place.

The booth was used last year at the Santa-Cali-Gon festival in Independence, Mo. with a viewing of over 1,386 people. It was then taken to Nauvoo, Illinois with a viewing of over 200 people, many who are LDS members.

We have been renting a U-Haul truck for these purposes. The cost last year for renting a U-hall truck was over $1,000 when you include fuel, etc.

We had been asked to take the booth to Dallas, Texas, Geneseo, Illinois and to Belle, Missouri, however, when they realized the cost of hauling they declined.

We again have an opportunity to visit all of these places this year and more. If we can procure a travel trailer the cost will be only for the fuel to pull the trailer. There are several people with a pickup truck that are willing to haul the trailer.

Future plans for the booth will include, A tour of Latter Day Saint Church History, and A tour of the Book of Mormon.

Anyone donating a gift of more than $1000 will receive a beautiful lighted Chrystal that represents our church and is a keepsake that you will want to hand down to future generations.

Your consideration in this matter is greatly appreciated.

Seventy James L. Noland

Clayton Foss update - July 4, 2014

We had a pretty good day yesterday. They have increased his OT therapy time and I think we are up to 4 hours now instead of three. No therapy at all today. We have a day pass and the girls and gram are coming here. We want to go to Luce Park (which is very close by), eat lunch out and come back early afternoon. They like the patients to try a short trip so that we can come back and say eek we need more help or I think this is doable. We think we will be somewhere in between. I am hoping that the Plaza isn't a zoo today. Fridays seem like an extra busy day. Am hoping the fourth will have people elsewhere. I am looking forward to feeling rested. We have to be diligent in his stretching exercises no matter what else we do today, but this will give us more of a feel of what our schedule will be like when we are home. Have a great 4th of July!

Clayton Foss Update - July 3

My post yesterday was cut short because we needed to get to therapy. We start our day at 4:30am. It takes from then until almost 9:00 to get everything done so he is ready for the day. We have private time for him to do his bathroom duties from 6:30 to 8:00 that I have had to enforce a few times saying it applied even to the Dr.'s and nurses. He is dressing in the wheelchair. Boy is that an effort for him. We start Occupational Therapy at 9:00. We have to be back to the room by 10:00 to cath and then be ready to be at Physical Therapy by 11:00. We just get back in time to have lunch, cath and then take a little nap to start all over again at 2:00. We have OT and PT back to back in the afternoon, so we are exhausted by the time 4:30 gets here. We always hope to get a little nap in before the next cath and supper. On shower nights, like last night, we then start the work after supper. Everything takes a lot of energy and time. We fall into bed by 7:30 or 8:00 as there are a few interruptions in the night with the self cathing. We are grateful for the long hard days as the therapist are working to give him all the tools to function as close to normal as possible when we get home. We know that we have to take advantage of their knowledge when we are here because it will be considerably more difficult to get therapy once we are home. Weekends are not as hectic and we can catch up a little on our rest. Yesterday's car transfers went really well. The afternoon session of trying to teach him to use his wheelchair to get up off the floor if he has fallen was over the top hard. It will take a while before he masters that skill. It looks like it is almost impossible at this point, but I'm sure eventually he will be able to do it. Well, it is time for me to start cooking breakfast.

Will post more tomorrow,

They spent a lot of time with him yesterday working on his arm strength and upper body. The goal is to teach him how to pull himself up off the floor. It takes a lot of arm strength and great technique. We are going outside to actually practice getting in the Pacifica today. We were both so tired last night that we went to bed at 7:30.
