A request for information

​David and I will be celebrating our 46th wedding anniversary on February 6th.

As I do not know Independence that well, I was wondering if someone could recommend a nice restaurant where we could enjoy dinner and celebrate our 46 years of a wonderful marriage.

If anyone has some ideas, please contact me. This is a surprise for David.

Thank you

Lord, Whom Shall I Marry

I am trying to find some copies of the book Lord, Whom Shall Marry. We was told it is out of print.

That is so sad. The testimonies in this book are so from our Lord and needs to be shared especially to all children in our church.

Please if anyone knows where I can find copies please let me know.

The Lord has placed upon my heart to share these copies.

Thank you

Around and about the Centre Place by High Priest Paul Gage, Independence, Missouri.

As an old saying states, "Time flies when you are having fun." January is going fast, are you having fun? The work

of the Lord should be fun, that is to say, enjoyable as we labor with the Lord and the Saints. It is a different kind of fun

than going to a party, a ball game, etc. I'm sure we all realize that, although the Father did throw a big event for the

prodigal son when he returned home. Remember what prompted the prodigal to go home? In Luke 15:17, it says, "And

when he came to himself...." I believe the Holy Spirit moved upon him and reminded him of what he had given up and

where he was-in a pig pen, so hungry he almost ate the food for the pigs. He realized then, after wasting his money and

time, he wasn't having any "fun." He said, "I will arise and go to my father..." In the Book of Mormon, Enos 1: Enos,

son of Jacob had gone to hunt beasts. Whether he had gone to have fun while hunting or not, we do not know. We do

know, as he tells us in verse four, the words of his father sunk deep into his heart. He then had the tremendous

experience of being spoken to by God and forgiven of his sins. His faith then was unshaken in the Lord. What "fun,"

joy and sheer happiness and delight he must have felt then and the rest of his life. Since God does not change, that

same joy is available to us, if we go to the Lord in mighty prayer and fasting as needful.

February is our next challenge! It is often referred to as the month of love because of Valentine Day. God is not

restricted to one day a year or a month a year, as He freely offers His love to us every second of every day of our lives.

The words of one song state that, "The love of God is greater far than tongue or pen can ever tell. It stretches from the

highest star and reaches to the lowest hell." This agrees with Psalm 139. Every day we have the opportunity to have

more fun than those of the world who do not know or acknowledge Jesus Christ as their Savior. Jesus said he came to

give us life, and that more abundantly." John 10:10.

In the "old days" of the Church, every January was "Stewardship Month" in which much teaching and preaching was

done to emphasis the importance of stewardship. I think DC 147:5a says it all, "Stewardship is the response of my

people to the ministry of my Son, and is required, alike, of all those who seek to build the kingdom." No matter how

we define or determine what our stewardship is, it comes down to our response to the ministry (sacrifice) of Jesus

Christ. Our response comes in many different ways, and yes, sometimes we may be in the pig pen with our face in the

mud. Dear Saints, do not let the adversary steal your joy and happiness in the Lord. God loves you, cares for you, and

always has us in His watchful keeping. Make Him the number one Love of your life.

The work continues in the Center Place as the Conference of Restoration Elders (CRE) and Pastors of Zion (POZ)

work together to provide ministry and training for priesthood and members. Planning is already underway for the

Annual Restoration Branch Family Reunion and Conference of Restoration Elders June 19-24, 2016. It would be really

great to have some representation from Australia. The missionary groups continue to function and recent missions have

been conducted in Kenya and East Africa, Nigeria, and both the northern and southern islands of the Philippines. The

SEAAM Board hopes to have a mission or two to Australia in 2016 and awaits direction from the Australian

Center Place Restoration School completed the Christmas break and is now into the second semester of the school

year. Administrator John Larson and members of the school board are visiting various branches encouraging a greater

interest in and response to the school.

Testimony “A Father’s Love”
by Sr.Pat Chadwick, Independence,Missouri

Dear Saints, Noel asked me to write a piece for the newsletter there, but first I want

to send my warmest regards to all of you there in Australia. Our experience with you at the reunion last year was just

wonderful. We are sorry that we won’t be there this year but I know all who attend will be blessed with that same

sweet Spirit that graced the reunion last year.

At the reunion I had the opportunity to teach a class for the women. I shared a testimony with the women in the class

that I felt impressed to share again in this newsletter. It is about God’s Love.

We all experience dark times in our lives and Hal and I experienced such a time when we were 27 and had been

married 7 years. Hal’s father was diagnosed with a terminal illness and his mother could not cope and had a nervous

breakdown. Suddenly I was caring for Hal’s father, mother, and our three small children, who were 5 and under. Hal’s

father lived 6 months and then I continued to care for my mother –in- law, which was no easy task, due to her terrible

Our marriage crumbled under the stress. I was totally overwhelmed and became severely depressed. I could not

sleep at night and would stay up and do house work. Hal worked nights and was not home. One night I was in the

kitchen doing dishes, there was a darkness that came into the kitchen, and terrible thoughts came into my mind, that I

end it all and take my life, even God would not blame me. It sounded like a good way out. It frightened me and I knew

it was wrong to think that way. I recognized this darkness as Satan and that the thoughts were a lie, He has been a liar

from the beginning of time. I felt almost overcome. I knew I could not last the night without help. I called the one

person who I knew would come in the middle of the night, my father. When he picked up the phone I said “Daddy I

need your help, can you come to the house.” He did not even ask me what the matter was. He answered, “I will be right

I went into the front room to wait and very quickly my father arrived and I realized he must have driven at a great

speed to get there so quickly. Immediately upon arriving he offered to administer to me and a sweet spirit came during

the administration and the darkness fled away.

Afterwards as I sat there quietly with him in the front room, a voice spoke to me, it came into my thoughts with great

power. It said, “Look at your earthly father”.

I looked at my father, I noticed for the first time how he was dressed. I noticed that his shirt was not buttoned, that

his belt hung unbuckled in his pant loops, he had no socks on, and his shoes were untied. I realized how he must have

jumped out of bed and just thrown on the clothes he had taken off the night before and stuffed his feet into his shoes

and rushed to my aid, breaking the speed limit. I saw great concern and love upon his face and in his eyes. Then the

voice said “See how much your earthly father loves you and how quickly he has come to your aid, don’t you know that

I your Heavenly Father love you even more and I am always with you”.

Great warmth filled me and I experienced the abiding love that my Heavenly Father has for me and all of His

children. That experience has been of great benefit to me. During all the trials of life I have been comforted by the

knowledge that my Heavenly Father loves me with a deep and abiding love and He is always with me. This great love,

care and concern is for all of His children. He loves us so much and is always with us. Pat Chadwick

Philippine Trip and Organization of a Branch reported by Elder Murray Broughton, Kelvin

We left and arrived on the 23rd December 2015 and stayed in Trece Martirez.the next day we had a communion

service. On Christmas day we went to Pasay City to bless the baby daughter of one of our brothers in Christ from

Australia, who now resides in Pasay City, Philippines. On December 26th, we left early in the morning for Agno

Pangasinan, (where we will spend the next three weeks). On the 27th December, we held a communion service at

which we had a big congregation of members and non-members. The next day, we had a get together Christmas party

for the young Sunday School children and distributed the gifts from Bro.Bob and Sr. Beverly Wilkinson. Sr. Delma

told them to open their presents at the same time. The children’s faces were glowing with happiness and most hadn’t

seen koalas or kangaroos before. On behalf of those children I would like to thank Bro.Bob and Sr. Bev for their

donation. We distributed also the gifts for the Trece Martirez Branch with which they are all very

happy.Unfortunately,we did not go to Puerto Galera; instead we sent the gifts to Sr.Joy, who is doing a good work for

the less fortunate and teaching Sunday School in that area. She distributed the gifts also to them for Agno Branch,Trece

Martirez Branch,Antipolo Branch and Puerto Galera. We also distributed 4 boxes of used clothes which we sent by

shipment and rice to 77 families. We had previously sent money from Brisbane Saints, which was given to people in

rice and food after the floods in which 2 church members were washed out their house. Their story during and after the

floods is really heartbreaking but they did not lose hope and instead they are praying that there are no more floods and

typhoons like this last one in which most in our area loss their rice crops.

We went to visit one of our sisters, Merly Nanasca in the hospital. We gave her money to be able to start treatment of

kidney dialysis, but unfortunately she had so many complications, her doctor told her that she only had 3 months to

live. She decided not to have dialysis, instead, going home and buying medication to sustain her up to 3 months. I pray

the Lord will give her a healing and a blessing that she may overcome the trials in her life. I pray also that she will not

suffer. We went to visit her in her home and she looked a bit better than she did in the hospital. I administered to her

I gave many administrations to those that were sick. On Jan.12, 2016 we left for Candon Ilocos Sur to visit

Bro.Ronnie & Sr. Remy Datu and their 2 boys. It was a good visit and we had communion service, study and hymn

singing with them .I was surprised to see the people who came for the service and study based on Christ’s Church,

Ordinances & Priesthood. I gave some people a bible and Tidings of Zion magazines.

We went back to Agno the next day and on the 15th of January we went to Trece Martirez,, arriving late in the

afternoon. The next day,we travelled to Antipolo City,to have a service and communion with the saints .There were

three baptisms. There were also administrations of the sick .There are seven members in Antipolo and I organized a

branch of which Elder Ace de Vera is the Pastor. We went back to Trece Martirez and had also a business meeting and

I stood down as Pastor .Elder Ace de Vera is the Pastor of Trece Martirez and Antipolo Branches. We had services

every night during our four weeks stay. We had to feed them spiritually and I know there is more to be done in the

Philippines, with some people asking for baptism next time we go back. We have only one member in Puerto Galera,

Sr, Joy Maranan, and she is really doing a good work for the Lord. She teaches Sunday School children, and as part of

Christmas holidays she organized a "Christmas Share your Blessings" to indigenous people called “Mangyan Tribe"

living in her area, Dalaruan. Everything I did, showed that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak,

remembering the words of the Lord Jesus who said; “It is more blessed to give than to receive." Let us make a home in

our hearts for him and share our blessings with the homeless and the needy

Pastor of Kelvin View Branch

Services have been maintained for the members living in the Euroa-Kelvin View area. Our Priesthood numbers have

been affected by the illness of our Deacon, Bro.Dirk Waasdorp who now lives a great distance from the work, which

places a greater load on the two remaining elders. We miss him very much.

Our attendance numbers have declined for various reasons and this is a matter of concern. The driving licence of the

pastor has been restricted and the kindness of several others in providing transport each Sunday is much appreciated.

Please excuse me for painting a dull picture, but rest assured, our desire is to continue the work and we pray for each

member in the branch to keep up the fight against the adversary who would see us close.

We ask you to pray for Sr.Loris Broughton who recently lost her husband Harry. Over 500 people attended his

funeral; what a wonderful testimony to his value in the community where he and Loris resided. His knowledge and

skill in caring for animals was indeed a blessing to the community. God bless you Harry and may the continued

presence of the Spirit of comfort rest upon a true and faithful member,

Greetings from Tamworth and a Happy Blessed New Year

On Sunday 3rd January Elder Danny Archer gave the Sermon then he travelled back to Sydney.

Bob and I presented the family Worship on Sunday 10th January, Bob welcomed us and qffered the Prayer and I

read “The Ministry of Hymns” by Sharon Warner. For our Class we are watching a DVD of the Gospel of John. For

the Sermon Elder Peter Archer read Sec 1:7-8c Sec 8a “What I the Lord have spoken I have spoken and I excuse not

myself (b) though the Heavens and the Earth pass away, my Word shall not pass away but shall all be fulfilled, whether

by mine own voice or by the voice of my servants, it is the same; for Behold and Lo, The Lord is God and the Spirit

beareth record and the record is true, and the truth abideth for ever and ever Amen”. Elder Peter also spoke on the Faith

of Adam who was obedient in offering the firstling of his flock as a sacrifice although he didn’t know why. Genesis 4

7 “and then the Angel spake saying, this thing is a similitude of the sacrifice of the only begotten of the Father, which

is full of Grace and Truth”. Elder Peter Served the Sacrament and Deacon Roy Schubert gave the Benediction.

On Sunday 17th January 2016 Elder Peter and Helen presented the family worship Peter welcomed us and gave the

invocation and Helen read “Keep me from harm, that it may not pain me” by Jennifer Raffety. In our Worship Service

Elder Peter spoke on the Light; He said let us walk in the light for "Jesus is the Light of the World” The natural man is

an enemy of God because he rejects the Light," Bear one another’s burdens and let us not be weary of well-doing. Let

us all go forward in faith never doubting, because without faith it is impossible to please God; forgive all men, have

faith, repentance and forgiveness and to God be the Glory”. Deacon Roy gave the Benediction. After the service,

members, friends and family went to the Dragon Palace Chinese Restaurant to celebrate Helen’s birthday.

On Wednesday 20th January we met at 26 Higgins Lane for a Prayer Service.

On Saturday 23rd January Elder Peter and Helen Archer travelled to Port Macquarie to bless baby Sebastian Dunn,

fifth child of Lance and Georgia Dunn and grandson of Merran, on Sunday 24th January 2016.

We thank Kingston Branch for their annual donation of $600 towards the upkeep of church car.

News from The Hummel Family in South Australia
submitted by Sr. Monique Hummel

We are settling in to our new home. Fortunately, there is much for us to do and we are trying to channel our energy

into home improvements. The boys will return to school after a 6 week summer break and we are keen to start a busier

routine. Ethan has decided on a Career in Aviation Mechanics and will be studying a certificate through TAFE while

completing his final year of high school. Jacob will begin year 10 this year but is not yet sure what type of career he

would like to get into. He has decided to return to football having been given the 'go-ahead' from his GP after learning

of a rare bone condition he has in his arm (he's missing a piece of bone approximately 2cm in diameter). Seth will soon

begin his 2nd year of high school - he would like to share that he has no ambition other than to leave school as soon as

possible and make a career as a stuntman.

I have begun work with a Community Care Service where I travel to different homes each day and do 'whatever is

needed' - work varies from showering and personal assistance, to medical appointments and sometimes just spending

time with people. It is different from the work that I have done previously in Aged Care but I am enjoying the

opportunity to help other people.

The break in our family has been very difficult to bear and we continue to ask for your prayers during this time. This

situation is still very new but it has made us very aware of the difficulties experienced by broken families particularly

when the decision to divide a family has been made for you. I feel very much as though we have been confronted by

Satan in our home and that he is attacking our family. Although I see the great need to pray for help, I struggle to find

the words. I want you to know, that it has been important to us, to know that you are praying for us.

Update on Butler, Missouri Restoration Branch Fire

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: paul gage

Butler, Missouri Restoration Branch

Dear Saints,

The following information was forwarded by Elder Phil Freeze, pastor at the Oak Grove, MO Restoration Branch after a conversation with Elder James Daugherty, pastor of the Butler, MO Restoration Branch.

The Butler, Missouri Restoration Branch was damaged, by fire, on Sunday, January 17, 2016.

Following the morning services and a fellowship lunch the Daugherty's received a phone call in mid-afternoon that the church was burning.

The inside of the church building is totaled and one outside wall. It may be three to four months before they will need help to finish the inside.

The electric company has added a temporary meter and electricity so contractors can work and did not charge the church for this work.

In the interim time, the Butler Saints will be meeting in the old Butler High School gym.

The gym, known as the "Community Use Center", is located one block west of their old meeting place, which is at 4 W. Pine St. in Butler, MO

Also the city of Butler is not charging them for the use of the gym. . Both of these things are blessings.

Please uphold the Butler Saints during this time of trial.

Tree Trimming Service

Jeff Johns

Tree Trimming Service

I'm looking for anybody who needs tree trimming done. I do not climb, but I can take down small to medium size trees (or large ones if they are in the wide open). I do trimming from the ground with a pole saw. I can get up to roughly 12 feet or more without a ladder. I've worked for other tree services such as "the best tree service in KC" (according to Angie's List), named Advanced Tree Experts North, so I know what others charge. I charge cheaper rates than any other service around and I look to make the work area very clean when I'm done. My aim is to create a fair business between me and my customers, but even more, I desire to make them happy. I've done work for Richard Neill and his son, Andrew and they seemed pleased and surprised at my cheap service, and were also pleased with my work.

5th Annual Prayer Vigil at the Temple Lot

“I was not a politician,

but I had strong opinions in regard to

such subjects as human slavery,

and felt it incumbent upon me to

fearlessly express my views and to do

what I could to help the Nation

overcome what I so plainly

recognized as an evil.”

—Joseph Smith III, Memoirs, page 85

What do we recognize as evil today?

Are we fearlessly expressing our views,

and doing all we can to stop that evil?

Let’s start the New Year by joining together in prayer,

asking God to help us stop the evils of our day!

Please come and stand on sidewalks surrounding the

Temple Lot, to pray for His guidance, and praise Him

that we still have the liberty to pray in public!

Mary Kay Consultant

--------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Lynn Vogel

Dear Friends, FYI and thank you very much.

I'm asking all my friends to pass on my website and help me find customers. Could you please pass this on to at least 5 people? Mary Kay is a well known and well loved brand and has great customer loyalty. We have a great line of sun screens and men's products too. Many people have lost their consultant, are simply busy, or choose to stay home these days, so I offer a mail order program if you prefer.

If you invite me to your home, I am honored to meet you and your friends. I take a teaching approach to demonstrate our products. I offer a complimentary facial to introduce products and a follow-up appointment to fine tune and review how to use the products correctly. Did you know that if you use only your ring fingers on your face you won't pull or tug on that fragile skin so much? We recommend that you apply cleansers, moisturizers and sunscreens with an upward and outward motion to fight gravity, but down on the nose and in under the eyes.

On, you may sign up and the profile questions will point you to the products which will be of most benefit to your skin care needs. You can also play around with Virtual Makeover if you like color cosmetics. We have it all! Then you can pay through propay with your card and have your products Ezshipped from our factory directly to you.
I'm praying for a way to reach a million consumers this year but I cannot do this alone. If you could pass this on to your friends and the people you know, or if you produce a newsletter, bulletin, program or some type of communication for your church, club, group or business that you could use to forward my website, I'd appreciate it. I can sell in all 50 states plus the U.S. territories.

Thank you for helping to make my dreams come true!

A Happy New Year to the faithful Priesthood of the Restoration Branches / Groups
I am writing to remind you about our February 6th 2016 meeting that will be held at Farview Restoration Branch Church, 1104 E. 24th St. South, Independence, MO (24th and Vermont).
Farview will be having their Men’s breakfast starting at 8 a.m. on that day – even if you are fasting for the meeting it is a great way to fellowship. There have been great conversations during this time of fellowship.
Agenda: 8 a.m. – 9 a.m. Men’s breakfast / pre fellowship 9 a.m. – 10 a.m. Prayer & Testimony - Lasting as long as the Spirit leads us then moving into the classes.
10 a.m. – 11:30 Class 1
11:35 – 1:00 Class 2
All times are estimates as there are times that the Holy Spirit moves us to stay in prayer or on a topic.
So many times when we come together we are incredibly blessed by the Spirit and leave with a renewed spirit.
The purpose of the CPR (Concerned Priesthood of the Restoration) is simple in that we do not promote, endorse or adhere to any Faction or group, but we are Priesthood that feel the need to hold on to the basic principles as when the RLDS Church was established and have been lost. There is a real need within the Priesthood body to understand the very basics of the Gospel and how we can move ourselves to being open for Endowment type of experiences and to bring a ministry to those in the outlying areas.
Today, more than ever, we need to come together and learn from each other so that we may be ready and ready our flocks for that day when Christ returns and we can be the servants that brought tenfold!
3 Nephi 5: 36 Verily, verily I say unto you, that this is my doctrine; and I bear record of it from the Father; and whoso believeth in me, believeth in the Father also; 37 And unto him will the Father bear record of me; for he will visit him with fire and with the Holy Ghost; 38 And thus will the Father bear record of me; and the Holy Ghost will bear record unto him of the Father and me; for the Father, and I, and the Holy Ghost, are one.
D&C 32: 3a Behold, verily, verily I say unto you, This is my gospel, and remember that they shall have faith in me, or they can in nowise be saved; and upon this Rock I will build my church; 3b yea, upon this Rock ye are built, and if ye continue, the gates of hell shall not prevail against you; and ye shall remember the church articles and covenants to keep them;
Men of the Priesthood, if there is a subject that you have been blessed in as it relates to strengthening the Church we would enjoy the opportunity to have you share with us.

Yours in Christ
Brian Turner Chairman
Concerned Priesthood of The Restoration ​
