Prayers please for those in danger from ISIS

Urgent need for prayer

Verified on Truth or Fiction:

This is incomprehensible. Prayers please. I received this last night from a friend. Bob Keifer

This is so sad. A friend from Ohio just got a text message from her brother asking her to shower him and his parish in prayer. He is part of a mission team and ISIS has taken over the town they are in today. He said ISIS is systematically going house to house to all the Christians and asking the children to denounce Jesus. He said so far not one child has. And so far all have consequently been killed. But not the parents.

The UN has withdrawn and the missionaries on their own. They are determined to stick it out for the sake of the families - even if it means their own deaths. He is very afraid, has no idea how to even begin ministering to these families who have had seen their children martyred. Yet he says he knows God has called him for some reason to be his voice and hands at this place at this time. Even so, he is begging prayers for his courage to live out his vocation in such dire circumstances. And like the children accept martyrdom if he is called to do so. She asked me to ask everyone we know to please pray for them. These brave parents instilled such a fervent faith in their children that they chose martyrdom.
Please surround them in their loss with your prayers for hope and perseverance. She was able to talk to her brother briefly by phone. She didn't say it but I believe she believes it will be their last conversation. Pray for her too. She said he just kept asking her to help him know what to do and do it. She told him to tell the families we ARE praying for them and they are not alone or forgotten -- no matter what. Her email broke my heart. Please keep all in your prayers. Thanks

This came this morning...
Just a few minutes ago I received the following text message on my phone from Sean Malone who leads Crisis Relief International (CRI). We then spoke briefly on the phone and I assured him that we would share this urgent prayer need with all of our contacts.
"We lost the city of Queragosh (Qaraqosh). It fell to ISIS and they are beheading children systematically. This is the city we have been smuggling food too. ISIS has pushed back Peshmerga (Kurdish forces) and is within 10 minutes of where our CRI team is working. Thousands more fled into the city of Erbil last night. The UN evacuated it's staff in Erbil. Our team is unmoved and will stay. Prayer cover needed!"
Please pray sincerely for the deliverance of the people of Northern Iraq from the terrible advancement of ISIS and its extreme Islamic goals for mass conversion or death for Christians across this region.

May I plead with you not to ignore this email. Do not forward it before you have prayed through it. Then send it to as many people as possible.
Send it to friends and Christians you may know. Send it to your prayer group. Send it to your pastor and phone him/her to pray on Sunday during the service - making a special time of prayer for this. We need to stand in the gap for our fellow Christians and others that are suffering.
In Christ....

Doug Patterson and Mike McGee Give Testimonies on Kangen Water

Hear these incredible life changing testimonies

Doug Patterson Tells His Story

Of healing from a deadly, rare case of Crohn's disease

with prayer and Kangen Water

7:00pm - 8:30pm

Thursday, October 9th, 2014


201 W. Lexington, Independence, MO, Suite 100

(Enter through the double doors on the 1st floor of the old Chrisman Sawyer Bank Building

On the SW corner of the Independence Square)

In March of 2012, Doug Patterson fell ill.

He had just returned in December from Liberia where he had been doing mission work.

He thought he may have caught something while there.

The first part of May, 2012, he was diagnosed with a rare form of Crohn's disease.

His name went out on many prayer lists as he battled for his life.

The doctors said his case was so severe there was no recovery. Death was inevitable.

God does His healing in many ways.

A church friend started bringing him water from her Kangen Water machine.

The results were nothing but amazing.

Please come if you have been praying for Doug.

Please come if you have heard of Kangen Water and wondered if it really works.

Please come if you have a machine and want to hear the latest and most amazing of stories.

Please come and bring someone you know who is investigating or drinking Kangen Water.


Mike McGee

Tells about his fight with Leukemia using Kangen Water

Mike was had been feeling bad for some time before his diagnosis of Leukemia in April of 2012.

His mother, Wanda Mc Gee, has a machine and started giving him water.

Mike had a stem cell transplant September 14th 2012.

Both Doug and Mike believe God is faithful and is healing them,

and they know that God, mysteriously,

has brought this special technology to them to assist in the healing process.

From: Kelli Miesse

Spring Herbs/Vegetable/Flower Plants - Heirloom/Non-GMO, Organically Started and Nursed from Seeds

Good morning, everyone! =)

I know many of you are not necessarily thinking of next year’s gardens yet. However, this is the time of year that I work my heirloom/organic seed exchange networks to procure seeds for next year.

Many of you purchased plants from myself or my sister last year, and I hope that you all were pleased. If not, please let us know what we can change.

We are taking pre-orders for plants for the spring already, in order to make sure we have available what you want. If you give us a request, we can grow EXACTLY what you want for your gardens next year. All plants are heirloom, non-gmo, and organically grown in our home greenhouses. We get them to you completely hardened for direct planting outside in your own gardens.

I will send a list of what we have on request. However, if you have something special in mind, let us know. We might just give it a try – who doesn’t love a gardening challenge?!?

Thanks, and look forward to hearing from you all.

Blessed day!

Update for Greg Mogg

Angela Coffman

Update via Cloyce:

Greg is opening his eyes some and answering us in short responses. His left side is really weak and he doesn't have much feeling in his left hand, arm or face. They are watching some swelling in his brain and a spot in his lung as well. However, we were very encouraged by his muscle response and strength when the Occupational therapist and physical therapist came to work with him today. Thanks for all your prayers.

Prayer Request for Greg Mogg

From: Cloyce Coffman

Prayer Request for Greg Mogg

We just received a call from our oldest Daughter, Gayla, in CO requesting prayers for her husband Greg Mogg. He started his usual activities this morning and became dizzy. After further symptoms of a stroke were experienced they went to Urgent Care where he was immediately taken by ambulance to the hospital. After the treatment for a stroke, he started to respond well. However, after tests it was found his carotid arteries are both (right and left side) clogged and is undergoing surgery now.

The most critical part is that the artery on the left side has several twists and turns, which is apparently quite serious.

Gayla is asking for “Big Prayers in behalf of Greg and the doctors. Thanks.

Prayer request for Sarah Norman

Please pray for Sarah Norman, her husband Aaron and their baby Marleigh (who is almost four months old). Sarah has been having gall bladder attacks. By the time she was scheduled for surgery on Friday (yesterday), her bilirubin levels were too high to do it. Instead she had a procedure to remove the stone which was blocking a duct. That procedure went well, but now Sarah has developed pancreatitis. She is suffering a lot of pain and nausea. She will be hospitalized and unable to have her gall bladder out until the pancreatitis resolves.
We greatly appreciate your prayers.

Cole Sappington's son Ethan needs your help

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: whistler kenworthy

Cole Sappington's son Ethan needs your help

Please read below about the ordeal and blessings this little boy and his family have experienced, and please remember him and his family in your prayers as he continues through more treatment and surgeries.

--Whistler Kenworthy

On the morning of Tuesday September 2nd, Ethan was admitted to Northwest Community Hospital due to an uncontrollable fever and swelling. By Wednesday morning of that week, Ethan's temperature was a consistent 103°F and his swelling had now traveled throughout his body. Ethan was unable to fully open his eyes. Around 2am on Thursday September 4th, Ethan started experiencing kidney failure. Ethan was immediately rushed to Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago. Once admitted and multiple tests had been run, he was diagnosed with sepsis, and was experiencing systemic organ failure.
First day at Lurie's Children's Memorial, September 5th, 2014 @ 11:00am.

He was immediately placed on a breathing pump, was given blood pressure medicine to help circulate and regulate his blood flow for his heart and other vital organs, was placed on dialysis for his kidneys and was given heavy doses of antibiotics for his liver. He was staring death in the face.

Ethan quietly fought, with his parents and family at his side, for 4 days before there was any sign of improvement. The bit of hope we were given after those four long endless days was that Ethan's kidneys were no longer in danger and he would soon be able to come off of dialysis. Ethan had overcome the first part of his fight. Ethan had been #EthanStrong.

Over the next few days, more positive signs would show up; the swelling had reduced, his liver was recovering and his color was coming back. On September 9th he was taken off his ventilator and was able to fully snuggle with his mommy and daddy, and this was also the day when we were finally able to hear his precious voice. He shouted loud enough for the room to hear "Mommy" "Daddy" and of course "Ernie". A BIG victory, a GREAT day, an #EthanStrong day. had opened eyes for us.
Shortly after the breathing tube was removed Mommy was finally able to hold her baby Ethan again, September 9th, 2014.

On September 11th, Ethan was finally taken off sedation medication. September 13th, was the day he moved from the ICU Unit to the Recovery floor. We have a long road ahead of us but were extremely happy to move onto the next step in our journey.
Ethan ready for his big move!
Mommy, Daddy and Ethan about to walk on to the 21st floor. (Recovery Floor)

Because Ethan was in systemic organ failure, the medication he was put on greatly reduced his blood flow to his limbs. The goal was to strictly save his organs and reduce as much damage from occurring internally as possible.

With this goal came a sacrifice that will forever change Ethan and his family’s life. Blood flow was essentially nonexistent to his hands and feet, ultimately leading them to a necrotic state. On September 18th, Ethan had the first of many surgeries to follow, where the blisters were surgically removed along with the finger tips on his right hand. After evaluating the damage done to hands and feet doctors have concluded that the left hand and both feet will need to be amputated. This surgery will take place the week of September 22nd ... changing his life forever.
Ethan after his first surgery, September 18th, 2014.

We are banning together today and reaching out for your support. Ethan and his family face enormous uphill battles over the next few months and years that can be greatly reduced by the support you give. The money raised here will go to many different needs that Ethan and his family will now have; medical bills, prosthetics, home adjustments, change of life adjustments.

We would like to thank everyone for their prayers, support and love through this difficult time. They are greatly appreciated!

Ethan has been #EthanStrong, now WE must be #EthanStrong

(Thursday & Friday 7 PM – Saturday Morning 9 AM)

THURSDAY EVENING: Lynn’s Message: “The Linchpin”

Lynn explores the question, “Is there a linchpin, a central theme, of the restoration gospel—that if it were removed, would the restoration gospel eventually fall apart?” Lynn addresses that very issue.

Tom’s Message:

The Book of Mormon was not given to us to be our own little hoarded treasure. It was given for the benefit of anyone who would receive it and it was given to help deal with some of the divisive thinking that has entered Christianity during its two thousand year history.

FRIDAY EVENING: Lynn’s Message: “Consequences of Losing the Linchpin”

Lynn examines three consequences of losing the linchpin—the central theme of the restoration:

1) We lose a marriage. 2) We lose a mindset. 3) We lose the miracles

Tom’s Message:

The Restoration is not our own little Movement or denomination. The LORD is working with anyone who will listen to Him. The Restoration is much larger than we are inclined to think.

SATURDAY MORNING: Lynn’s Message: “What Happens when we find the Linchpin”

Lynn explores two things that happen when we find the linchpin (the central theme) of the restoration.

1) Oneness happens among the saints

2) The kingdom happens in our midst

Tom’s Message:

This is the Hastening Time and the LORD is very busy doing many things to bring to pass the fullness of His work in the Earth.

Room or two needed for Christian woman


Room or two needed for Christian woman

I have a Hallmark friend in her mid-50’s who needs a small, inexpensive place to rent. It could be just a room for the time being, but having a kitchette would help. Perhaps, mother-in-law type quarters. She works two part time jobs and goes to school to certify as a Special ED teacher. This would be a good person to have house sit, or be on the property coming and going while the owners are traveling or on mission trips. My friend might also be good for an elderly woman or couple who could use someone around for occasional help and conversation. She is single, clean, quiet, no pets, considerate of others, and trustworthy.

She works in Blue Springs and attends Blue River Community College in Independence. She would prefer Blue Springs or eastern Independence area if possible.

RLDS#2: The Community of Christ uses the Book of Mormon along with the Doctrine and Covenants and the Bible as the basis of faith for the church, but does not make belief in any of all of these a test of fellowship or of opportunity for ordination.

RLDS#1: Wow ... Their are some dead RLDS folks rolling over on that news ..My Dad is just heartbroken over this as he sees priesthood members that don't feel the Joseph Smith inspired version of the bible and the Book of Mormon worthy of being reference material .. He just refuses to leave the congregation that's changed so much and now he finds himself outside and totally lost .. It's so depressing .. One day he was a member of the RLDS faith then just like that he was a member of the Community of Christ ...then, Boom just like that the RLDS faith was gone and he was and still is horrified and lost .. Well suppose it's an old story that many of the RLDS congregations had to deal with as the elderly dealt with the C of C changes.

BMAF: Being an LDS faithful, I can truly sympathize with your father. Many former RLDS are happily turning to LDS sources for Book of Mormon archaeology and scholarly research. See, There are more now than in the past and we've always had a good dialogue with Shirley Heater and other former RLDS scholars. I invite you to join this ecumenical movement. Despite all the hatchets that have been thrown from both sides, it's time to bury the hatchets. There are blessings in store and we can learn much from each other.

RLDS#3: I think we still use the books for a point of reference or completely if we wish…our pastor uses the iv and the BoM and DC...… the freedom goes with the belief that all are welcome, and that there is freedom in what you choose to believe…..scripture says we must love God and believe in Christ… does not say we must believe in any other book, it tells us to read all good books. We are to use our intelligence (as a gift) and grow in knowledge. We are also told not to be judgemental…. Love one another, we are only as strong as the least among us..

RLDS#4: At one conference I attended there was a resolution presented that basically required belief in the Book of Mormon. The message in the book itself stood as testimony that this resolution was out of order, which it was rightly ruled.
I believe many teachings in the Book of Mormon are simply part of our identity and makes us uniquely original in all the world!
The whole story behind and within the Book of Mormon is frankly too much for me to get my brain around. I can see how easy it is to discount it simply because of all the baggage surrounding it. On top of that, we still have two other books of scripture to choose from! But like a magnet, it draws me to it and has become for me a "Pearl of Great Price!"

RLDS#5: The Book of Mormon is the testimony of Jesus Christ to us in these latter days to guide us in our thinking about who God is. That book, and its adherents, have faced many challenges and trials because it is what it says it is. While the modern day archeologists are changing their knowledge about Meso-America because of their discoveries, the Book of Mormon historical record has not changed. What's there not to believe? Why wouldn't a set of believers want their leaders to believe what they do?

BMAF: In my opinion the Book of Mormon does not allow you to view it with a cafeteria approach. It is true or it is not. It is a valid Mesoamerican Codex or it is a sham. If it is what it says it is, then it follows Joseph Smith was and is a prophet. I don't understand cherry-picking the book. Shall we throw out the book of Ether? How about King Benjamin's speech? Mormon's testimony? How about Alma 1 but not Alma 2? I absolutely agree with Kent, the Book of Mormon is our handbook for survival in the last days and the most intimate record of Christ's love for us. Can you imagine His letting some 2,500 people feel the nail prints in His hands? I believe He appeared at a Nephite temple........that requires that I believe there were Nephites who loved, lived, had families.

RLDS#6: As someone versed in both history and theology the BoM has always struck me as clearly being a work of 19th century Christian theology, written to address the very specific cultural and theological conflicts happening at that time. No wonder then that the early saints found that it spoke directly to them, their concerns, and the challenges of the age. It reflects how early 19th century Christians with minimal educational opportunities might have view 6th century BC jews. But what it does not reflect is how nomadic herders in the lavent six centuries before Christ thought of the world or religion.

RLDS#7: Some of the Bible is fiction so why can't some of the BofM be fiction? I was referring to university seminary biblical scholars who write for example that the book of Job is hebraic fiction. But it's scripture. So why can't the BofM be American fiction but be scripture?

RLDS#1: I strongly disagree with the comment about "fiction" no matter how Prestigious the seminary school maybe or how highly acclaimed the scholar.. The word fable is a better word and less inflammatory..

RLDS#7: Fable or parable can be based in fact but ultimately is a piece of fiction to teach a value or lesson.

RLDS#1: I strongly disagree and think any defense of calling the sacred scripture fiction is non-productive and some may consider it offensive ..

BMAF: Joseph Smith wrote that "we believe the Bible as far as it is translated correctly, we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God." Is it reasonable to consider some of the Bible to be non-scripture? Yes, because it was collected over many years' and includes many authors, then endured many substantial changes through the centuries. Is it reasonable to cherry-pick the Book of Mormon in the same way? No, because it was translated by one person and other than some minor grammatical changes, remains intact; including the CofC translation. With the Bible, many hands have stirred the pot. With the Book of Mormon, only one person filled the pot. You can consider Job as a real man or the book of Job a fictional story to illustrate a principal, but the Book of Mormon will not allow you to do that.

Dear Fellow Believers:

Price Publishing Company and the Restoration Bookstore (915 E. 23rd St, Independence, MO / 1-816-461-5659 / have always been supported by the Saints in their prayers, purchases, and generous contributions; for which we have been and will continue to be very grateful.

Unfortunately, the Bookstore is experiencing a time of ongoing financial difficulty and we need your help. We have taken many actions to reduce our expenses, but the lack of sufficient income over time has been significant enough to bring us to a critical situation.

In addition to regular expenses for wages, utilities, taxes, etc., we also face additional printing costs this month with no way to meet them. This last week we put the Fall Vision on the press, and also took delivery of our new book Joseph Smith Fought Polygamy— Volume 2 which is now available. Together, we now owe $10,000 for these two publications, and do not have the funds to pay for them

There is always a delay between publication, and recouping publication costs as orders for that item come in. Usually we can accommodate that delay, but this time we cannot—we do not have the funds on hand to pay the bills for these publications.

In addition to sales, we now truly need any contributions you may be able to make. Your contributions are tax deductible.

We are committed to continuing the work of the Bookstore in promoting the Restored Gospel and look forward to the blessings of the Lord in helping us to accomplish this work with your assistance.

Thank you for considering us in our time of need,

The Restoration Bookstore Directors

Dennis makes it a point to sell at a reduced rate to the Saints.

The Moe’s are one of our committed, hardworking families who are Kingdom focused.

It is good to learn from them and others who have gathered to the Center Place.

They have a lifetime of experience in farming and nearly 20 years of stories here in Zion.

Room for Rent Wanted

From: Deanne Murnieks

Room for Rent Wanted

I have a friend, Kate, here in Oregon who happens to be moving to the Kansas City area. I have been praying for her regarding this move and how I can help to introduce her to the church. I believe as a response to my prayers, she has asked if I know anyone in the area who may be willing to rent her a room while she looks for and secures an apartment. She believes this will take about 6 months. If you have a room you would like to rent or possibly know someone who does please contact me and I will put you in touch with Kate. Please feel free to contact me with questions as well. There is no better way to spread the Gospel of Christ than through the love of the Saints!

In the Hope of Zion,

Homemade Pie Contest

From: Julie Marsh ​

Homemade Pie Contest

Sept 27th 2014 submit by 10:00 am

Kingsville Restoration Branch

There is something about community and pie that go hand-in-hand. It represents the goodness of home and place. In the spirit of community our pie baking contest is open to all – just like our future store!

We encourage participants to get creative, have fun and celebrate the Americana treasure that is pie.

Pie Entry Categories:

• Contest Rules:

1. The pie must be made from scratch and baked by the individual(s) submitting the entry – No store bought pies or crusts.
2. Each baker can enter as many pies as they wish, but a separate entry form must be completed for each pie.
3. Each entry form will be recorded and a number will be assigned to that pie. Only the number and the recipe title will be displayed to allow for anonymity during the judging.
4. The pie must have at least a bottom and a side crust and must be baked in an oven. Due to lack of refrigeration, we are not able to accept cream-based pies.
5. Pies must be baked in an 8-10 inch pie tin/pan, preferably non-returnable. We will place a sticker on the bottom corresponding to the assigned entry number, so we know it’s yours.
6. Due to allergies, we request that a recipe be submitted with each entry.
7. Pies should be brought by 10:00 am-11:00 pm to Kingsville Restoration branch
8. All pies submitted will be served after judging.
9. Bakers agree to have their pie, recipe and name published and/or photographed without compensation or reimbursement.


Judges will sample the pies and express their inner food critic! Judging will be based on the following:
• Appearance: Once sliced, does the pie appears to have the appropriate gooey-ness, juiciness or firmness? Are you enticed by the aroma and visual appeal?
• Filling taste: Is the flavor balanced and delicious? Does it have the appropriate texture (smooth, chunky, crunchy, sticky, etc.)
• Crust taste: Does it complement the filling? Is it tender, flaky and cooked through?
• Overall Impression: Do you want another slice?

Judging will be done on a point system then all the scores will be averaged together with the highest score winning in each category. In case of a tie, the baker with the most points in creativity with local ingredients will win. If there is still a tie, winner will be decided by the toss of a coin.


Prizes will be awarded to the first and second place.

Please fill out this form for each pie you will be submitting to the contest.

Salem Restoration Branch building fund

From: Deanne Murnieks


​T​he Restoration Branch in Salem Oregon is raising money to build a church. A kind and talented sister in our branch, Nancy Curtis, has generously provided a meticulously hand-crafted quilt to help raise funds for our new building. The quilt is designed around Galatians 5:22, "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance..." This beautiful quilt measures approximately 80" x 80", large enough to fit a full or queen sized bed. The embroidery of the fruit consists of 188,571 stitches, took 22 hours to stitch, had 91 thread changes, and won third place in the Oregon State Fair. The picture of this beautiful quilt is shown below. If you would like to donate to our building fund for our new church building please make your check out to The Restored Church of Christ and note that it is for the building fund/quilt raffle, and mail it to Priest Jim Clark, 4577 Sunflower Way NE, Salem, OR 97305. In return, you will be sent 1 raffle ticket for every $5 donation or 6 raffle tickets for every $25 donation. A drawing for this beautiful quilt will take place on January 1, 2015.

BSQ Live This Weekend!

Website email header (580 x 137)

Hi Saints,

The Bountiful String Quartet will be playing again this Saturday, September 6th at 7pm at Grace Episcopal Church in Liberty, MO (520 S. 291 Hwy, Liberty, MO 64068). Consisting of the BSQ's hymn arrangements and passages of scripture, the program is designed to be worshipful, uplifting, and Christ centered - in many ways it is more of a musical worship than a concert or performance. All are welcome to share in this celebration of the gospel of Christ. Bringing friends and family is highly encouraged!

The BSQ will also be bringing the same program to The Nativity of Mary Parish in Independence on September 20th at 7pm.

Admission at both events is free, though donations will be gratefully accepted. Copies of the BSQ's album, "To God and the Lamb" will also be available for sale at both events.

For a interactive map of either location, please visit our website at

Thank you all, and may God bless you more than you expect!

Kenya: the translation of the Book of Mormon into Swahili

From: Frank Frye

Kenya: the translation of the Book of Mormon into Swahili

The translation of the Book of Mormon is progressing very well. We had a slow start for several reasons, but now we have six teams of two people each working on the translation into Kiswahili (many may just know the language as Swahili). Five of the teams are translating directly from the English and one team is presently reviewing what is being done. They have all kept me very busy providing up to date documents for the translations. I am keeping the records of what each team is doing and giving out new chapter documents to each team and receiving for back up and review the documents as they are translated. At present we should be at about 65% completion of the basic translation. I'm projecting that we will finish that part around the 7th of September. After that several of the best team members will join with Team # 6 and we will all be reviewing the entire translation.

I am very pleased with the dedication and the knowledge that these Saints have. We have been getting up between six and six thirty each morning and ready for a worship service and/or a class to begin with. The teams translate until breakfast is ready (a couple of hours later), and then work all day except for meal times. Then a class/worship service each evening and continue to work until between eleven to one or two in the morning depending on which person you may be talking about. The days are very long, but the dedication and love that we are experiencing is wonderful.

This translation will be a great blessing to many. The Swahili language is universally used in many countries all over East Africa, regardless of whether the other languages that may be used there. We are aware of three other translations of the BoM into Swahili, but they all have some serious problems. We hope to produce the best translation yet. The teams pray every day that God will guide them and inspire their minds for this great task. It has been an honor to work with them.

Please keep this important task in your prayers.

A small brush pile removed and some weed eater work

A small brush pile removed and some weed eater work

We have a 20’ x 30’ weed filled lot with a small brush pile at one side. We need the brush pile hauled off and the weeds knocked down. The brush should easily fit into a standard size pick up. I estimate the job will take about 45 minutes or less. Let me know your cost. I can pay you in cash or ammo.

Please contact Bruce Luedeman at 816-353-6826

The space is in the alley behind our home at 620 S Main Street, Independence.

Wear plenty of bug spray. The chiggers are wearing combat boots this year
