Happy Anniversary to the Church of Jesus Christ Restored April 6, 1830
Greetings Dear Saints,
I'm sure you are all aware that Thursday, April 6, 2017 is the 187th anniversary of the Church since it was restored in 1830. Refresh your historical memory by reading DC 17:1 as well as the preface to Section1.
It is my testimony that the Church of Jesus Christ is still in His hands and is alive and well, waiting for the Saints to "Come to themselves" as the Prodigal Son, and come home to the Father.
An outstanding prayer service and Sacrament Service was held at Waldo Avenue RB on Sunday, April 2, 2017. A stirring service was held Tuesday, April 4, 2017 also at Waldo, sharing the story of the purchase of the former home of Prophets Joseph Smith III and Israel A. Smith.
Another service of worship and historical significance will be held Thursday, April. 6, 2017 at 7pm at Waldo Avenue RB.
There have already been a number of strong positive testimonies in relation to the Sacrament Service on Sunday. Anyone who has a testimony to share of the events of this week, how the Lord has touched your life, experiences you have had with the Lord, etc. are encouraged to send them in for consideration to be included in the Tidings of Zion.
Items may be sent to Paul Gage at firstname.lastname@example.org preferable electronically in font Times New Roman size 12. If you have something you would like to share, it needs to be in by May 1, 2017.
Feel free to forward this as desired.
Chairman, Publication Council, Conference of Restoration Elders
