From: Judi Faunce

SCRB Summer Volleyball League 2016

It will soon be VOLLEYBALL fellowship time!

South Crysler Restoration Branch is once more planning to host an Outdoor Coed Volleyball League starting the first of June this year!


Remember that if you are having trouble filling your roster it is perfectly fine to recruit outside of your branch (perhaps an outreach effort?) or to combine with another branch. Just be sure they understand that this will be a Christian League with an expected code of conduct.

I am including a sign up roster form for your convenience as a start toward planning your team. Please provide a team name. Also, remember that to comply to coed rules you must have an even number of girls and boys on the court at all times so balance you team according to gender! You may also use the “”ghost” rule this summer. We will accept all players ages 8th grade to adult+.

REMINDER: Let us know what level best describes your team:

Beginner/ Intermediate/ Advanced (Circle one)







1. Recruit a minimum of 8 players. I would suggest about twice this number due to busy summer schedules

2. You will also need a scorekeeper for each game each night you play.

3. A fee of $5 per player will be required. It is a one-time fee and will be good for the entire weeks of competition.

4. Complete the form on the back of this sheet listing all of your players.

5. Meet the deadline of May 23, so that schedules can be made and you can be notified prior to our opening night of competition. (Depending on the response, games will be scheduled starting at 6:00 PM and every 45 min thereafter) We plan to play every Friday night through July 29th with the exception of June 17th which is the SCRB Reunion!

6. You can return your entry form to Bill or Judi Faunce at 1613 N. Emery St. Independence, MO 64050 or contact them at: 816-716-9469 or 816-932-1278 with further questions.

Please find attached the latest Australian Restoration News.

Kindest regards,
Noel Rowlatt


Zion the beautiful beckons us on. ++++++++++

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

G! Day! and God's Blessings to all the lovely Saints in Australia,

Some say 2016 is to be a momentous year. Well, we only have eight months left to see what happens. In the meantime,

we are told to be waiting and watching, not out of fear or dread, but out of a great joy of expectation for the return of our

Lord, Jesus Christ. Please note, I did not say He was coming back in 2016, but we are to always be on a "spiritual alert,"

for whenever that time comes. Some often wonder why we are not given the day and time of Jesus' return, but as

someone recently said even if we knew, there would be many who would still wait until what they thought was the last

second before trying to be ready. It does not work that way. We might all refresh our memories by reading the parable of

the Ten Virgins in Matthew 25. That truly is an amazing parable as even the five foolish were out there all night long,

waiting, but when the time came, Jesus said to them, "Ye know me not." What crushing words to hear from our Savior,

we knew Him not. It obviously takes more than just "going to the big event." We must be ready in all aspects of our lives.

Read, again, DC 32:3. It would be easy to become discouraged to the point of saying, "What's the use?" The world is in a

mess, people all over the world are being assaulted by the vices of the adversary, who certainly is going to and fro on the

earth, like a roaring lion, seeing whom he may devour. There are just as many Saints, as anyone else suffering from all the

dread diseases, but we do not sing, "OUR GOD IS AN AWESOME GOD" for nothing. HE and HE alone has all power in

heaven and earth and has already defeated the enemy. Praise God for His mighty victory through our Lord, Jesus Christ.

April was a busy month with many church history events and opportunities for the Saints of the Centre Place to come

together. The services and events were all very uplifting and encouraging to those in attendance, and now with less than a

month away, we await the "season of reunions and camps." More on all that in the June newsletter.

An item of great interest, to many, is the recent purchase of the Joseph Smith III home, just west of the Auditorium in

Independence. It is a true blessing that the Lord has made it possible for the Restoration to have this tremendous source of

Reorganization history available to us. There will be articles and pictures about this facility in the next Tidings of Zion

which will come out as soon as possible following the June 19-24 CRE/POZ Conference/Reunion.

In regards to the Tidings, we are hoping to start a new feature which will be called "Australian Outlooks." Please send

your testimonies, reports, etc regarding the great work of the Lord in Australia. Send pictures as well and we will consider

all items . The deadline for consideration of items for this issue is May 15, 2016 or sooner. Please send your testimonies,

etc, to

Riches from the Scriptures Volome 2 by Elder Neil Kerswell

Chapter 3. Repentance

Over the years I have made a running account of truths I have found in scripture or good books about repentance. It has

continued to grow in definition and no doubt while life shall last, isn’t finished yet.

Definition: Repentance is a gift from God, an extension of His love and mercy by the movement and power of

His Holy Spirit. When received with an open and honest heart, it brings about humility and the relinquishment of

any evil practice, from the conviction that it has offended God. Repentance implies reform (ceasing to do evil and

learning to do good). Full repentance involves bringing restitution to any injured parties resulting from our sin.

True repentance is a condition of God’s forgiveness to all who are coming to know His ways.

God reaches out to us when we have committed sin unknowingly or transgressed knowingly, when our minds

are to various degrees darkened from our act of rebellion against Him and the effects of the worldly kingdom in which we live. He extends mercy (even though we don’t deserve it – this is Grace – the gift we cannot earn).

This is why it is often said God loved us before we knew how to love Him. He loved us while we were still in our sins. Christ is the ultimate expression of His love. It is by His Spirit that our conscience is first worked upon after our acts of sin and transgression, hoping to harrow up our soul to an understanding that we have offended God.

This in turn is intended to bring remorse of Conscience. If we allow His Spirit to work in our hearts further we will say Sorry unto God and any persons we have hurt as a result of our evil moment. Once an evil heart is replaced by a purged one, forgiveness is granted. God expects we will show Him by our works from that time forth

that we desire to change for the good. This requires of us to make good any injuries we have caused our fellow men and women in the process.

Why the Necessity? (All Bible Scripture is from the Inspired Version)

[2 Pet 3:8] But concerning the coming of the Lord, beloved, I would not have you ignorant of this one thing, that one day

is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

[2 Pet 3:9] The Lord is not slack concerning his promise and coming, as some men count slackness; but long-suffering

toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

God Loves us all and wants everyone to come unto Repentance so that they perish not.

Answer 1 – If we will not repent we will perish

[Luke 13:4] Or those eighteen, on whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them; think ye that they were sinners above all men who dwelt in Jerusalem?

[Luke 13:5] I tell you, nay; but except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

[Luke 13:6] He spake also this parable, A certain husbandman had a fig tree planted in the vineyard. He came and sought fruit thereon and found none.

[Luke 13:7] Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none. Cut it down, why cumbereth it the ground?

[Luke 13:8] And he, answering, said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about and dung it.

[Luke 13:9] And if it bear fruit, the tree is saved, and if not, after that thou shalt cut it down. And many other parables spake he unto the people.

Answer 2: God cannot look upon sin in the least degree of allowance.

No evil thing can dwell in the fullness of His presence. Therefore the Plan of Salvation was set in place from

before the foundation of the world, being revealed through the Gospel of Jesus Christ (good news).

With regard to repentance, God has given many commandments or laws to keep mankind in the path of righteousness. When we break these laws knowingly or unknowingly we alienate ourselves from God to varying degrees. Forgiveness and reconciliation is granted by God upon the grounds of repentance which is an integral part of the gospel plan. Having the power of God unto the softening and changing of a person’s heart towards righteousness. This is why in the Parable of the Fig Tree (The owner of the vineyard “God “went looking for fruit “fruits of repentance”. When he found none, justice required the fig tree “people” to be destroyed because they were barren “Their lives were filthy “. However the keeper of the vineyard “Christ- Light, Truth, Love, Mercy, Mediator between God and Man “asked to be given a year to give the tree a fertile foundation upon which to grow. If the tree did not respond fruitfully in that time frame. Then let it be destroyed.

This parable tells us God is long suffering towards mankind and offers us opportunity to come back into His presence. However if we refuse that opportunity our salvation will pass us by, and we shall remain filthy still, separated by our own unrepentant works and desires.

Repentance is more than sorrow:

[2 Cor 7:9] Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance; for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing;

[2 Cor 7:10] For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of; but the sorrow of the world worketh death.

This scripture is helping us to understand that there is good and bad sorrow. One type is of God and leads us to repent and turn to God seeking forgiveness and promising to do our best with God’s assistance, not to repeat the act.

The other is worldly and makes no change for the better in our lives. An example would be (If you were stealing

and were caught in the act by the police authorities. If when brought before the judge the only sorrow you feel is the regret that you weren’t more careful not to be caught. Then this is worldly and in God’s judgement condemns the individual).

Repentance and Restitution go hand in hand:

[Luke 19:5] And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zaccheus, make haste, and come down; for today I must abide at thy house.

[Luke 19:6] And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.

[Luke 19:7] And when the disciples saw it, they all murmured, saying, that he was gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner.

[Luke 19:8] And Zaccheus stood, and said unto the Lord, Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken anything from any man by unjust means, I restore fourfold.

[Luke 19:9] And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forasmuch as he also is a son of Abraham;

The fruit of repentance in the life of Zaccheus was that he was willing to make restitution with all those whom

his sins had injured and share with the poor, because while he had more than his fair share of the cities wealth

other poor souls had been going hungry and naked.

Alma & the Sons of Mosiah showed Fruits for their Repentance

[Mosiah 11:185] And it came to pass after they had fasted and prayed for the space of two days and two nights, the limbs

of Alma received their strength, and he stood up and began to speak unto them, bidding them to be of good comfort:

[Mosiah 11:186] For, said he, I have repented of my sins, and have been redeemed of the Lord; behold, I am born of the


[Mosiah 11:187] And the Lord said unto me, Marvel not that all mankind, yea, men, and women, all nations, kindreds,

tongues and people, must be born again;


[Mosiah 11:200] And now it came to pass that Alma began from this time forward, to teach the people, and those who

were with Alma at the time the angel appeared unto them:

[Mosiah 11:201] Traveling round about through all the land, publishing to all the people the things which they had heard

and seen, and preaching the word of God in much tribulation, being greatly persecuted by those who were unbelievers,

being smitten by many of them;

[Mosiah 11:202] But notwithstanding all this, they did impart much consolation to the church, confirming their faith, and

exhorting them with longsuffering and much travail, to keep the commandments of God.

[Mosiah 11:203] And four of them were the sons of Mosiah; and their names were Ammon, and Aaron, and Omner, and

Himni; these were the names of the sons of Mosiah.

[Mosiah 11:204] And they travelled throughout all the land of Zarahemla, and among all the people who were under the

reign of King Mosiah, zealously striving to repair all the injuries which they had done to the church:

[Mosiah 11:205] Confessing all their sins, and publishing all the things which they had seen, and explaining the

prophecies and the scriptures to all who desired to hear them:

[Mosiah 11:206] And thus they were instruments in the hands of God, in bringing many to the knowledge of the truth,

yea, to the knowledge of their Redeemer.

[Mosiah 11:207] And how blessed are they! For they did publish peace; they did publish good tidings of good; and they

did declare unto the people that the Lord reigneth.

Alma and the sons of Mosiah the King had been trying to destroy the Church in their day. They caused both

pain and suffering to their parents and the membership. After their incredible experience with the angel, Alma

was unconscious and his spirit was in a situation like unto hell, being in torment of soul. Once he remembered the

words of his Father and repented, seeking after Christ, he was given a living testimony and his body of flesh

became a Temple of the Holy Ghost. From this time forward he was a tremendous servant of God who showed his

faithfulness by the works of his life.

Repentance in him had brought forth fruit unto the Lord in both his soul and all the souls who heard the word

through him.


 Repentance implies reform. It means a surrender of all that is wrong, whether in doctrine or morals, as fast as the

discovery of error is made.

 Very few subjects should be proclaimed and explained as much as this one. The world needs it and the church

would be improved greatly by her members doing more of it

 Repentance is a conversion made manifest – a change of heart – and when it occurs, prepares us for a relationship

with God, which is brought about by baptism of water and the Spirit by priesthood having authority.

 Baptism does not remit sin that is unrepented of, and while baptism is the gate by which we would enter,

Repentance is the approach to the gate and continues in God’s word which is like a rod of iron that runs alongside

the straight and narrow path that leads to life eternal, of which if we will cling to it, will keep us on the path no

matter what storms or times of darkness may cross our way.

 Anyone who approaches God’s kingdom in any other way than He has declared is without divine passport to

celestial life.

May all who read these words be blessed by the added witness of God’s Holy Spirit in testimony as to the truth thereof.

Lynn’s Writing Courses

How would you like to come to our seminar…

And never leave your house?

I don’t know how many times I’ve been asked, “Brother Lynn, when are you going to have your next writing seminar? I couldn’t come to your last one.”

Everyone is so busy these days. So I thought I’d bring the writing course to you.

Two courses:

1) Writing Made Fun (Introductory) and, 2) How to Publish (Advanced)

Both courses will be up and running and available within the next month. I thought I’d give you a preview of what’s to come. Enjoy the two 7-minute promo videos of both courses.

I’ll let you know when they’re available.

Blessings, Lynn

Marie (Wages) Nordyke Obituary

Marie (Wages) Nordyke Obituary

Marie Rosella Anderson was born on December 16, 1913, the daughter of Edwin P. and Blanche M. Anderson a pioneer farmer and rancher family near the small town of Albin, Wyoming. She grew up engaged in the many activities associated with first generation pioneer life on prairie land in SE Wyoming. She especially enjoyed riding the pony her father purchased for her when she was only 10 years old. Marie often told how thrilling it was to feel the wind blowing through her hair when at a full gallop on her pony.
A young man appeared in Marie’s life when Fred Wages came to the Ed Anderson homestead from Colorado seeking employment. He was hired with the provision that Fred would attend Albin High School to get his HS diploma. Fred graduated salutatorian from the Albin HS and received a scholarship to the University of Wyoming. Rather than going on to the University, Fred chose to continue working as a farm and ranch hand while courting Marie. This successful courtship resulted in their marriage in Fort Collins, Colorado on April 21, 1935.
Soon after their marriage, Fred took a job working on the railway mail for the US Postal Service on a route from Denver, CO to Ogden, UT during which time they resided in Denver. About a year later, they returned to the Albin area to resume farming for the next 3 years during which time they became parents of their first son, Sherrie Raymond, on September 16, 1938.
In 1941 they moved to Orchard Valley, a suburb of Cheyenne, where Fred began his full-time career as a mail carrier, first carrying a foot-route in Cheyenne then carrying the first rural route out of the Cheyenne Post Office.
While living in Orchard Valley, 2 more sons were born to Fred and Marie, Norman Gary on September 5, 1943 and Dwight Eugene on February 12, 1947.
After moving to the Bell Ranch a few miles west of Cheyenne for the 1948-49 school year and then into Cheyenne for the 1949-1950 school year, Fred and Marie made the decision to move to Cameron, MO in the summer of 1950. This opportunity resulted from exercising an option in the rural mail carrier division of the US Postal Service that permitted ‘trading routes’. Fred traded routes with a rural mail carrier in Cameron. This move was motivated in large part by their desire to live in a community where there were many members of the church so that their family would have the benefits of worshiping in a ‘large’ congregation of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints ( several hundred members) as compared to the small congregation in Cheyenne (about 50 members). A secondary benefit was that their sons would have other church members in their school classes rather than being the only church members in their classes in Cheyenne.
After living in a classic old farm house for 21 years, Fred and Marie moved into the new house they built in Cameron in the summer of 1971. In the fall of 1987 they moved to Independence, MO. They were only able to enjoy living together in their new home for about 2years prior to Fred’s death on June 18, 1989.
Marie continued living as a widow until being courted by a kindly widower who also attended the South Chrysler Restoration Branch. On August 22, 1993 Marie was married to Dalton Nordyke. They first consolidated into Dalton’s house and sold Marie’s home, but within a year they also sold Dalton’s house and moved into a very attractive apartment off of Route 40 in S. Independence. Eventually, they determined that their life style could be improved by moving to a very comfortable apartment at The Fountains at Greenbrier on Swope Drive in Independence.
At the age of 94, Marie again faced widowhood following Dalton’s death on August 15, 2008. She continued living in her apartment at The Fountains with special celebrations for her 99th, 100th, and 101st birthdays. For her 100th birthday, Marie was granted her ‘one birthday wish’, to go horseback riding. She was accompanied by family and friends to the Robbie Maupin Horse Ranch in Lexington, MO to saddle-up for an exciting ride on a fine cow-pony. We all cheered as she rode around the arena outfitted with her pink cowboy hat and riding gloves.
On April 8, 2016, Marie went to be with the Lord. She will be remembered for being a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. Marie was known to be an excellent homemaker who prepared delicious meals, especially her lemon pie. Wherever she lived, Marie was dedicated to growing beautiful flower and vegetable gardens. In later years she began to display her special artistic talents, working with pottery, copper, painting, knitting, and embroidering. Marie had also served her church and community in a variety of capacities including serving as Women’s Leader for the RLDS “Daughters of Zion” while living in Wyoming and Cameron, and as Leader of “The Orioles Girl’s Club” in 1975-77.
Marie was active in the Extension Clubs in Wyoming and Missouri, was president of the “Todays Women Club”, The Fun and Facts Hobby Club, the Independent Club from 1970 to 1974, and was twice president of a Federated Women’s Club. She also served in various offices including president of the Cameron PTA.
Marie was preceded in death by her father, Edwin P. Anderson, her mother Blanche M. (Raymond) Anderson, three younger brothers, Edwin A. Anderson, Ivan A. Anderson, and Marvin D. Anderson.
Marie is survived by her three sons and their families, Sherrie Raymond and his wife, Eleanor Jean, and their 2 sons, Stephen Randall and his wife, Shannon, and a granddaughter, Emily Claire, and David Ellis and his wife Deborah; Norman Gary Wages and his wife Lynette, their son, Ronald Jeffrey, and daughter, Liana Marie Nichols and her husband Adam Nichols, and their son, Hayden; Dwight Eugene and his wife, Diana, their daughter, Heather Erin Zimmer and her husband, Colin Zimmer, their son, Eric Nathan and his wife Margaret.
Her firm faith in Jesus Christ and her living testimony as a servant of her Lord will be remembered by all who had the privilege of her love and friendship.

Thank you for the prayers for granddaughter

Thank you for the prayers for granddaughter

We want to thank all of those who had prayers and letters of concern for our granddaughter Olivia Fua. She had to spend three (3) days a Merilac which is part of the University of Kansas Hospital.
Both of her parents Lori and Clayton want to also thank you for your concern and prayers.
After she was released she went back to school because she wanted to be apart of the choir contest practice.
When she was leaving the office after signing back in she ran into another special person in the hallway. It was her boyfriend and she said they hugged and cried. Then she said he told her for the first time in his life he said a prayer that morning to be able to see Olivia that day.
She told him yes prayers can be answered.
So we ask that you continue to remember her and her parents in your prayers.

Zion's Ridge Campground Fundraiser / RADA Cutlery

Zion's Ridge Campground Fundraiser / RADA Cutlery

Hello saints and friends,

We are still trying to raise the necessary funds to complete the Restroom/Shower Building in time for the Reunion May 30th - June 4th. Local scout troops also use the campground for their overnight activities. We are currently selling RADA cutlery. We receive 40% or your purchase. The items are all made in the USA and have a lifetime guarantee on workmanship. I have catalogs for placing orders, samples for viewing, paring knives and peelers for quick purchase and we are now set up for online ordering. They have been in business since 1948 and these are the knives sold at Jamesport and Windsor, Missouri Amish stores.

Go to our customer # is 506151 and our password is ridge (all lower case). You will be placing your order directly with RADA and they will ship directly to you and deposit our commission in our account. They have a quick turnaround of about 2 days order fulfillment and 2-4 days mailing. Shipping is very nominal. We have set this option up in order to allow saints in other areas of the country to be able to assist in this project but anyone is welcome to order direct if you prefer. Many items would make nice Mother's Day gifts, shower and wedding gifts, Father's Day... They sell cutlery, stoneware, cookbooks, prayer journal, spices, soup mixes and mixes for sauces, dips, cheesecakes, pound cakes, etc.

Please feel free to pass this information on to your friends, family, co-workers. Thanks.
