Free Chickens


We have a rooster and three laying hens we would like to give away. They are all 2 years old. There are only 3 requirements to meet in order to take them:

1. You must treat them humanely.
2. You must pick them up at my house (address will be provided to the taker).
3. The rooster must not be placed with another rooster. This rooster is a very kind and gentle rooster and uses his authority to break up fights, defend the injured, etc. (this is not a joke). He is also not a very good fighter against other roosters, yet will try to maintain dominance. He lost one eye and sustained serious injuries due to the last rooster who gained dominance over him. Shortly after that we got rid of all roosters except him. Because of his personality he became a special pet, and he needs to go to a good living situation.

If interested, please call or text Jeff Cool at 816-804-9049

Thanks!

Part Time Bookkeeper


My daughter is getting busy with college so I need someone to come into my office, or we could work out an online arrangement, near month’s end, to reconcile and prepare monthly financial statements. Must be fluent in Excel as that is what my current system is on. I am a small one person business. I imagine once the bookkeeper is familiar with my needs the work may encompass 4-5 hours a month. Besides communicating what my needed reports are I cannot train someone. Monthly reports are forwarded to my CPA for subsequent tax preparation.

Vernon Darling's Blessing


We have just received a miracle! We went to meet with the oncologist today and we were told that after reviewing the 1st pathology report and then receiving a final one that there is no sign of cancer anywhere! The doctor said there must have been a mixup when the first one was sent out and after conferring with 2 other doctors, all agreed that there is no cancer. They may think that there was a mixup, but I choose to believe that Vernon received a miracle! Thank you for all your prayers and loving support. Praise God!

​Rural School Music Program Fund​


Good Afternoon Saints,

I am excited at the possibility of adding world drumming to my elementary music classroom this year! I've created a classroom project request on DonorsChoose.org to give you a glimpse of what I hope to accomplish if this project succeeds. As of now, the project still needs $735 to succeed with an expiration date of December 2nd. Unfortunately, due to budget cuts, my district is unable to purchase quality instruments from which my students can learn key fundamental concepts. If you or someone you know wish to donate to a rural school music program, please follow the link below. Any amount helps get us closer to the goal!

Greater Love, message for 8/18/17

From: Francis Harper
wbfrmsup@iowatelecom.net


Greater Love, message for 8/18/17


Dear Ones,
In 1941, at Auschwitz, a Nazi concentration camp during World War II, a catholic priest, Father Maximilian Kolbe, demonstrated the greater love of Christ.
“The Jews were always beaten until they were unconscious when they arrived at the camp. Then they were placed in the ‘block of death,’ where they received less food and care than the other prisoners. Kolbe, under the cover of darkness, was often visited by other prisoners seeking his comfort. He would say something like, ‘Take Christ’s hand in yours, and you can go forward with confidence.’ Often he spoke without words to the prisoners, by warmly holding their hands, then he would say, ‘I commend you to the protection of God.’
“Like a magnet, he drew people to himself. In the prison the general tone was every man for himself. Kolbe wrote: ‘The real essence of evil is the denial of love for God and neighbor.’ Life became so brutal that it was rare to see one prisoner aiding another, Kolbe would say, ‘I don’t fear death. I fear sin. I fear for my soul, and my faith.’
“He was called the Apostle of Auschwitz, because he spent every free moment helping others with his short statements of encouragement and prayers. I recall how Kolbe once gave his entire serving of soup and bread to one of the prisoners who was young. He said: ‘Take it, you are younger; you at least must live!’ His desire to sacrifice himself for others amazed us. His uncommon love for neighbor was not a momentary impulse, but was rooted within his personality. He loved everyone. He dispensed love, nothing but love” (Excerpts from A Man for Others; In the words of those who knew him, Patricia Treece).
When it was discovered by prison officials that a prisoner had escaped, it was decreed that ten prisoners would be put to death as punishment for the escape of one.
During the selection process, “a sergeant, a tough professional soldier, had been designated or picked by the S.S. [Security Squadron] for one of the cruelest deaths known in this place of cruelty. He was to be shut up naked, in an empty, underground cell, and left without food or water until he died. Grown men, not too numbed by terror, weep and wail at such a sentence. This victim is no exception. He sobs for his wife and children. He does not want to die. The S.S. ignore him.
“Suddenly, another prisoner breaks ranks, and asks to take the condemned man’s place. Now the S.S. are stunned. Who are you, they ask the man numbered 16670? ‘A Catholic priest,’ the prisoner replies. ‘I have no family,’ he adds, as though that explains everything. The priest had not asked the sergeant if he was a believer before he offered to die for him.
“Father Kolbe had caught a glimpse of the glory of the One who offered to die on the cross for us (From A Man for Others).
This Polish priest heard and answered the call that comes to all who promise to follow Jesus. We must strive to embody the love of Jesus. For “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” (John
15:13).

Love for all,
Francis Harper


The Greater Love

From: Francis and Iris Harper
wbfrmsup@iowatelecom.net


The Greater Love


“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13). Jesus exemplified this greater love throughout his earthly life. The final proof of this was his willingness to lay down his life by dying on the cross for each of us. As disciples of Jesus, we are called to willingly lay down our lives on behalf of others. Jesus said, “A disciple is not above his master; but every one that is perfect shall be as his master” (Luke 6:40).



Jesus also said, “A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another: as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another” (John 13:34-35). Jesus expects us to follow his example in the way he loved. His love is without limits; unconditional. He even prayed for those who were crucifying him! Who of us can love like this?
Only by the divine power of the Holy Ghost will we be able to love as Jesus loves. He said, “Verily, verily I say unto you, he that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also, and greater works than these shall he do; . . . And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him, but ye know him, for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you” (John 14:12, 16-17).
According to 2 Corinthians 6:16, we are the temple of the living God. “As God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” But it is written, “. . . he [the Holy Ghost] dwelleth not in unholy temples” (Mosiah 1:82). Before we can receive the promised Holy Ghost, which will enable us to love as Jesus loves, we must clean up our act. Cleaning up our act requires that we come to Jesus and fully comply with the principles of the gospel as they are listed in Hebrews 6:1-2: Faith [“without faith it is impossible to please him” (Hebrews 11:7); Repentance [“for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23); and Baptism in water. Then comes Baptism by the Holy Ghost.”
The greater love we seek is the greatest of all virtues. The Apostle Paul expressed it in these words: “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity” (1 Corinthians 13:13). Charity has been defined as the pure love of Christ. “Wherefore cleave unto charity, which is the greatest of all, for all things must fail; but charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth for ever; and whoso is found possessed of it at the last day, it shall be well with them. Wherefore, my beloved brethren, pray unto the Father with all the energy of heart, that ye may be filled with this love which he hath bestowed upon all who are the true followers of his Son, Jesus Christ, that ye may become the sons of God, that when he shall appear, we shall be like him . . .” (Moroni 7:52-53).
Our worthiness to dwell in the presence of God will be determined by the love we have in our hearts. John, the beloved apostle, wrote: “If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar. And this commandment have we from him, that he that loveth God love [s] his brother also. We know we have passed from death unto life because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brethren abideth in death. Hereby perceive we the love of Christ, because he laid down his life for us; we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren” (Excerpts from 1 John, Chapters 3 and 4).
I remember the words of a song that was popular many years ago. The words I recall are these: What the world needs now, is love, sweet love,” I would change the words to: What the world needs now, is love, pure love; the greater love; the pure love of Jesus.

Hi Everyone

I was wondering if there is a church mechanic or if someone knows of one who can fix my driver's side lock? It's a 2011 Hyundai Elantra. It's not locking or unlocking with the remote. Carmax says it's probably the sensor. They want several hundred to fix it. So wondered if anyone knew anyone who can do it for less?

Thanks

Private Music Lessons for Violin, Viola and Saxophone


Dear Saints,

Now that I have moved into the Independence area and with school starting up for the kids, I will have a couple days a week available to teach private lessons for either violin/viola/saxophone to those who are looking to have their child or themselves learn. For violin/viola, I teach all ages and skill levels, and for saxophone I teach from beginners to intermediate levels. I hold a BA in music from Graceland University and an MA in performance from the University of Iowa. My location for lessons sits right off of 291; ideal to get to and from an appointed time coming from town or any of the surrounding areas such as Blue Springs, Liberty, Lee’s Summit, etc…

For more information about me, what I teach and why I teach, please check out my website at naylormusicstudio.com!

It’s never too late to learn! Why not give your child or yourself the wonderful opportunity to add on one of God’s great gifts of music to your life. : )

Thank you and God Bless!

$10 & $20 LDS BOOKS


I recently purchased a bunch of LDS BOOKS and want to pass them on. They are displayed in groups for $10.00 each and $20.00 each. Scroll down for photos.

This is an ideal time to obtain books for research on Mormonism.

Shipping for 1 book is $3.00. Add $1.00 for each additional book. Or I deliver in the Independence/Blue Springs for only $1.00 per order (any quantity). Sales tax (for buyers in Missouri) is $0.59 or $1.17 per book.

Please e-mail directly to PaulVLudy@gmail.com or call me at 816 210-8450.

Remember that I also have thousands of used RLDS books available, plus a growing number of new books and new reprints.

The next book in line is a revised edition of TELL MY PEOPLE by Walter Weldon. It should be ready by October.

Free Washer and Dryer

From: Scott McMilian

Free Washer and Dryer


We have a GE washer and dryer to give away. They are each 19 years old. The washer is "use at your own risk." It flooded our basement back in October. The timer is going out. It still works, but it requires some babysitting (pressing on or slightly turning the knob) to get the washer going again when it stops mid-cycle. The dryer is in better shape. However, once in a while, it requires an extra 20-30 minutes to get a load of laundry completely dry.

If you have an interest in either of these, please let us know soon. If we don't hear from anyone, they will be gone on Tuesday.

Thank you,

List of denominations in the Latter Day Saint movement


"The denominations in the Latter Day Saint movement are sometimes collectively referred to as Mormonism. Although some denominations opposed the use of this term because they consider it to be derogatory, it is especially used when referring to the largest Latter Day Saint group, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), and offshoots of it. Denomination."

This is an interesting read.

Our son has used it for the past year and enjoyed fishing but no longer has a place to store the boat. Trailer has brand new tires. Motor starts right up. The only problem is when putting the motor in reverse it needs to be held as the pin broke of. All else is good and it's been a great boat.

Draw Nigh to God

From: Francis Harper

Draw Nigh to God


Dear Ones,

Where does the process of drawing near to God begin? Since God never violates our freedom to choose, the decision to cultivate a closer relationship with God is left to us.

As we draw ever nearer to God, step by step, we begin to know ourselves as we are known. “For now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known” (1 Corinthians 13:12). As we draw nearer to God we become more and more conscious of our sins and of our need to repent. We need to see ourselves as God sees us. When this happens, we may say as Paul, “O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death?” (Romans 7:24).

Jesus described many of us in our day when he said, “. . . thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable and poor, and blind, and naked” [spiritually] (Revelation 3:17-18). Only in His presence will we see ourselves as He sees us.

The Scriptures have been called the gospel mirror. A daily, consistent, scriptural study will help us see the changes we need to make in our lives. Every positive change we make will bring us closer to God, which in turn will reveal even more things we need to overcome. This is the process of our redemption. Jesus says to us, “Be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

Erlo Stegen had been a Christian missionary in East South Africa, for twelve years. He felt that the efforts of his missionary team had been a complete failure. He said there weren’t even twelve true Christians to show for their hard work. He then challenged his team to attend two Bible Studies each day at seven a.m. and five p.m. They started by studying the Book of Acts. From the outset, the Lord took hold of their hearts. The more they studied, the more their hearts were broken. They saw how the early Christians continued with one accord in prayer.

During one of their sessions they were suddenly interrupted by a young woman; a new convert, who stood up and asked if she could pray. Her simple prayer was, “O Lord, Jesus, we have heard what the early church was like. Couldn’t you come down and be in our midst as you came down two thousand years ago? Couldn’t our church be the same as the one in Jerusalem?”

Pastor Stegen told how the Lord convicted them of pride, prejudice and idolatry. He said to his team: “Let us get down on our knees and pray.” He continued, “I wept incessantly, and cried, God, be merciful to me, a sinner. We were praying in a cowshed when we heard a noise like a great wind. Everybody was conscious of the presence of God. All I could do was bow down and worship the God of heaven.” This happened in December, 1966.

Stegen testified, “After the Holy Spirit came down, more happened in two or three days than had happened in our twelve years of hard labor.” Without church bells ringing, the people came. The Holy Spirit drew them; they came without invitation. Many lives have been transformed and healed; physically and spiritually.

The mission base, Kwasizabantu [Zulu for “the place where people are helped”], was established in 1970. Currently it is one of the largest and most successful mission stations in South Africa. Four thousand beds are available for those who come to be helped.

The Holy Spirit stands by to help us today, even as it helped the First Century Church.


May the Lord be with you, always.

Draw Nigh Unto God Msg for 8/11

Draw Nigh Unto God Msg for 8/11


Draw Nigh to God


“Draw nigh to God and he will draw nigh unto you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn and weep; let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up” (James 4:8-10).

In this scripture James gives us the recipe for drawing near to God. If we follow his prescription, God will draw nigh to us. What blessing is greater than to live in the Lord’s presence? The psalmist describes the blessings of living in the sacred nearness of God. “. . . in thy presence is fulness of joy: at thy right hand are pleasures for evermore” (Psalm 16:11).

The pathway to God’s presence is also portrayed in the life of Jacob, who prayed, “O God of my father Abraham, and God of my father Isaac, I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the truth which thou hast shown unto thy servant . . . And he [the Lord] said, Thy name shall no more be called Jacob, but Israel; for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed . . . and he blessed him there” (Genesis 32:9-10, 28-29).

In both of these descriptions humility is emphasized as the way to God’s presence. Jacob confessed, “I am not worthy.” James counseled, “Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he will lift you up.”

How long has it been since we have recognized our unworthiness to be in God’s presence? David, sensing his many transgressions, prayed: “have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy loving kindness; . . . blot out my transgressions. Cast me not away from thy presence . . . Thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it . . . The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise” (Psalm 51). David became “a man after God’s own heart” (1 Samuel 13:14).



If we want to live in the Lord’s presence and be the Lord’s people [“after God’s own heart”], we need to bow before him with broken hearts and contrite spirits. We need to weep and mourn over our sins, as James suggested.

We need a genuine breaking before God. Those who weep over their sins will be forgiven and preserved in the great day of the Lord’s judgment. “For behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly shall be stubble; and the day that cometh shall burn them up . . .” (Malachi 4:1).

Attendance at church once each week is no guarantee that we will be numbered with the wise virgins when the Lord suddenly appears. Remember the parable: “Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself; God, I thank thee that I am not as other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers; or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week; I give tithes of all that I possess. But the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven . . . saying, God be merciful to me, a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other; for everyone who exalteth himself, shall be abased, and he who humbleth himself, shall be exalted” (Luke 18:10-14).

“The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit” (Psalm 34:18).

Needing a Youth Group


Washington Restoration Branch in Excelsior Springs, is in need of a youth group that would be willing to volunteer some time to help our branch out with some storage cleaning. It's not a lot and wouldn't take long, but is needed to prepare for some pest control.

I've attached some photos. Ideally we would like to see a group from a smaller branch that could use some items from our church that are from a time gone by. We used to have a large group of youth and had some talented members that made costumes for Christmas pageants that are free to anyone that wants them. We also have a barn puppet stage that is beautifully crafted!!

Please contact Steve Ferdig, pastor of the branch, to schedule your youth group service project!! We will provide a meal!!

Blessings in advance!!

Support Good Theater Mary Poppins


Dear Saints and friends,

I write to encourage you to support Joy Cain’s Center Place Christian Theater Group’s production of Mary Poppins. We are so blessed to have Joy and Larry Cain’s vision for having good theater and music experiences in the Restoration. The fine arts come together in musicals and Joy does what she does for the sake of our youth and adults, to give us all the opportunity to work on something together that is bigger and better than ourselves. Her productions are nothing short of Zion at work. So many skills come into play and strong relationships form and we are knitted together into amazing memories. The actors and musicians develop a sense of commitment, diligence, and confidence at the same time they are exposed to acting, choreography, singing, stage craft, makeup and even fundraising. Those who work on the shows find they are stretched to do so much more than they think is possible. I have firsthand experience, having painted backdrops for Joy for many years. That is such a good thing to learn about oneself.

Everyone from the actors to the lights and construction crews work so hard for opening night. They deserve and hope to have every seat filled.

Thank you, Joy, for sticking to your mission! What an absolutely colossal, fun way you provide to help us all bind ourselves to each other, to be interdependent, to feel a part of the Kingdom and make Zion real real! Thank you for helping us believe in what God has put inside us and wants to see flow out! Thank you for putting Joy in our lives. How much we need that every day!

Tickets for Broadway shows, (Mary Poppins is one) average $120 a seat, plus handling and taxes. This Mary Poppins production is 1/10th that price. Tonight, Monday, is the last night discount price tickets will be sold. At the door they are $12. At the main building of the Remnant Church from 6:30 – 8:30pm, tickets are available for $10. Be generous. If you can’t come to the show, still come and make a donation to support this wonderful theater group.

Disclaimer: I was not asked by anyone except the Holy Spirit to write this. I do encourage you to see Mary Poppins. I know you will be blessed.

Clothes Dryer Lint Exhaust Tube cleaning


Does anyone clean Clothes Dryer Exhaust tubes? If so, please get in touch with me. I have the equipment if needed. It is a really messy job and time consuming. While I don’t mind looking like a lint covered Muffin man (or lady) afterwards; I have a small business and I don’t have the time. Let me know what the charge is and a good time for you to do the job. Thanks!

P.S. You can keep all the lint.........

“Walk by Faith, not by Sight”

From: Francis Harper
wbfrmsup@iowatelecom.net

“Walk by Faith, not by Sight”
(2 Corinthians 5:7)


“We look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal [temporary]; but the things which are not seen [with the naked eye] are eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:18).
Although God and his Son, Jesus Christ, cannot be seen with our natural eyes [except by divine revelation], we know they exist in the realm of the Spirit. “By faith Moses forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king [Pharaoh]; for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible” (Hebrews 11:27). Like Moses, we all need to “walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7).



Jesus came to open the eyes of the blind. Isaiah prophesied: “Hear ye deaf and look ye blind, that ye may see. For I will send my servant unto you who are blind; yea, a messenger to open the eyes of the blind and unstop the ears of the deaf; and they shall be made perfect notwithstanding their blindness, if they will hearken unto the messenger, the Lord’s servant. Thou art a people, seeing many things, but thou observest not . . . ; The Lord is not well pleased with such a people . . .” (Isaiah 42:18-22).
Jesus healed many who were physically blind. He can also open our spiritual eyes to see the unseen realities of the spiritual world.
What are the unseen realities we need to see with our spiritual eyes that they may become real to us? Paul wrote, “. . . he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” (Hebrews 11:6). Jesus said, “Ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And when I go, I will prepare a place for you, and come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am ye may be also” (John 14:1-3). These are some of the many precious, unseen realities we can believe without reservation.
Jesus said to Martha, “. . . whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? She saith unto him, Yea Lord; I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world” (John 11:26-27). He asks us the same question; “Believest thou this?”
Jesus promised, “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; Even the Spirit of truth . . . which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you” (John 14: 16, 26). “. . . when the Spirit of truth is come, he will guide you into all truth . . . and he will show you things to come” (John 16:13). The Holy Ghost, as invisible as the wind, has manifested himself in many helpful ways in the lives of believers and followers of Christ in every generation, including our own.
There are other “exceeding great and precious promises” (2 Peter 1:4); hidden realities, yet to come, such as the Lord’s coming “in the clouds with ten thousands of his Saints” (Revelation 1:7), “Then they who are alive, shall be caught up together into the clouds with them (1 Thessalonians 4:17). “He that overcometh shall inherit all things” (Revelation 21:7). And John saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband “. . . and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God” (Revelation 21:2-3). “The consummation will be glorious” (D & C 141:8b).
We need to visualize these things as if they had already occurred. The promises of God are sure. “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things are passed away” (Revelation 21:4). “Let us walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7).

Walk by Faith, message for 8/4/17


Dear Ones,

We need to improve our abilities to see the invisible and unseen. During an evening service at a Saints’ Reunion this summer, an elderly lady suddenly came to sit by me. It was obvious that she was upset. She began to quietly sob when I asked her to explain the cause of her tears. The theme for the day was “Having love one to another.” She said, “I feel like an invisible woman. No one seems to know or care that I am here.”

I thought we were a loving and caring community at reunion! How could this happen here? Perhaps we were so happily engaged in greeting our old friends we had ignored the new person in the camp? Later in the week the lonely lady was doing much better. On the last day of reunion she was expressing her desire to return again next year. Hopefully this experience has taught us to watch for the unseen and invisible persons in our communities and neighborhoods.

A college student shared a lesson he had learned about invisible persons. One of his professors gave a pop quiz during one of his classes. He wrote, “I was a conscientious student and had breezed through the questions, until I read the last one: “What is the name of the woman who cleans the classrooms?” Surely this was some kind of a joke! I had seen the cleaning woman many times. She was tall, dark-haired and appeared to be in her fifties, but how could I know her name? I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our quiz grade. ‘Absolutely,’ said the professor. ‘In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant and important. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say hello.’ I have never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy.” “Remember the worth of souls is great in the sight of God” (D & C 16:3c).

None were neglected or went unnoticed by the Lord. It is recorded that when Jesus appeared to the people in Meso-America, “the multitude went forth and thrust their hands into his side, and did feel the prints of the nails in his hands and in his feet; And this they did do, going forth one by one” (3 Nephi 5:15-16). Later when he blessed the children, “he took their little children, one by one, and blessed them, and prayed unto the Father for them” (3 Nephi 8:23).

The Lord knows every one of us and is aware of our needs and every heartfelt desire and concern within us. We need to ask him to assist us in seeing the invisible persons and the unseen needs of those we meet on life’s pathway.

On May 9, 1994, I prayed, “Lord, send someone to me today whom I can bring to you.” He brought a high school student; a person I least suspected would come, a co-captain of our football team. He asked, “Francis, can I join your church?” After being taught, he was baptized. Today he is happily married and he and his wife have two children. They attend church regularly and assist in the ministry.

On January 11, 1995, I prayed that the Lord would send someone I could help that day. I waited for someone to come, and in the afternoon a man came. The first words he spoke were, “Francis, I need your help!” He was facing foreclosure on his home. I loaned him the amount he needed, and he later paid the loan in full. Needless to say, I gained a lifelong friend.

The Lord will help us see the unseen ministry needed by people who may be our next-door neighbors!

Love and blessings to all,
Francis Harper

Re: Underwater Ancient Pyramids in WISCONSIN LAKE

Re: Underwater Ancient Pyramids in WISCONSIN LAKE


Dear Brother Maynard and all,

Thank you for including me on your email regarding "Underwater Ancient Pyramids in Wisconsin." I'm always interested in such things, and do not doubt that some sort of structures exist in the lake mentioned in the video. I've read other reports about it, and even saw a TV program regarding the same. However, the lady making this "report" lost all credibility in my opinion when she started showing underwater structures that were not from Wisconsin. She even showed a squiggly distorted photo of the pyramid of Kukulkan at Chichen Itza which is in the Yucatan of Mexico, apparently trying to make it look like it was underwater. She couldn't even properly read the the words on her own script.

Then there is the issue of dating the Wisconsin structures at more than 12,000 years old !!! To my knowledge, nothing has ever been recovered from that lake that could even remotely be used to date the underwater structures. The 12,000 years are probably from the imagined dates of the ice age. I do believe in the Biblical Flood of Noah's day, but that was less than half of the 12,000 imagined years ago. The so-called dating of the ice ages was invented by atheists who were trying to deceive people into an atheistic belief system which would relegate the Bible (as well as the Book of Mormon) to the dust bin of history.

I am far more interested in the real history that we have in the Bible and the Book of Mormon which do recognize the reality of the Flood and the reason for it which was the judgment for sin. And as the Apostle Peter said, there will be another judgment at the time of the end (in our day) which will be by fire because of the wickedness upon the earth. By the way, there is a surviving manuscript from the Spanish Conquest of Guatemala (the Popol Vuh) which relates the story of a universal flood which it calls "butik," and further states that the ancient prophecies speak of another butik which would come at the time of the end, and would not be by water, but this time by fire. I find that written report far more credible than this cobbled together video from some unknown person that can't read her own script.

I'm sure that most, if not all of you had some similar thoughts as you watched this video, but since no one else had commented yet, I thought I'd put a few of my thoughts on "paper" just for the fun of it.

Keep the faith.
Blessings to all,
Frank Frye

P.S.
Join me to celebrate my 70th birthday as the Lord bisects the USA with the shadow of a total solar eclipse on the 21st of August. I believe it will be one of the signs of the judgments that God has for our nation because of the wickedness of most of our leaders and many of our nation. 3 Nephi 9:51–52 is about to be fulfilled because of the "open borders" that the last president forced upon our nation along with his busing program that brought Central American youth into the hearts of major cities and even small towns all around our nation. If we don't befriend these Latin American people who are now in our midst and teach them the gospel so that they can come under covenant with the Lord, then they will be our enemies and will fulfill the above prophecy.
