Prayer Request for Jesse

From: Luke Zahniser
green_Luke_03@hotmail.com


Prayer Request for Jesse

I have a friend, Jesse Bolinger, of Lamoni, IA who is undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. He is not a member, but is continually seeking the Lord with a knowledge of the Restoration and an eagerness to learn more about the church. He has requested prayers from anyone who is willing to pray for him, especially myself and other friends that he knows he can trust. He has undergone several treatments and is starting to feel the symptoms from nausea and vomiting to exhaustion. I would, on his behalf, mention that he would greatly appreciate prayers for healing, comfort, and the ability to overcome this event in his life.

Thank you all in advance.

Your Brother in Christ,
Luke Zahniser

Verle Cornish Response


Brothers and Sisters,
I have received the answer that I was looking for and I want to share it so that other saints may benefit from the instruction Patriarch Verler Cornish gave as well. I hope that we take to heart what he said for it is very good counsel!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Top Ten Tips For Becoming Spiritually Fit For The Kingdom

​​1. Begin the first 5 waking minutes of each day in praise and prayer to your Heavenly Father

2. Spend 15 min each day remembering and writing in a journal how God's hand has been in your life and pray that God will give you a humble heart.

3. Spend 1 hour each day feasting upon the words of Christ and pray asking that God will teach you how to implement into action that upon which you have feasted.

4. Fast at least 3 meals each week, spending at least 30 minutes each time you fast focusing upon Christ.

5. Pray each day with all the energy of heart that God will bless you with charity, even the pure love of Christ.

6. Make a list each week of 5 persons for whom you will specifically pray and call them during that week to tell them that you love them and that you are praying for them.

7. Make a list of all the persons with whom you have aught and begin to pray for them, eventually approaching them to implement reconciliation

8. Make a list of persons that you do not particularly like and pray for them, asking God to reveal to you the good and positive potential He sees in them.

9. Do not say anything negative about anyone else and do not listen to gossip or negative statements about others.

10. End the last waking minutes of each day in praise and prayer to your heavenly Father.

Thank you!
Your brother in Christ,
Eric Woolery

Ron McCune Home From the Hospital

From: McCune, Esther
ermgfd@mail.missouri.edu


Ron McCune Home From the Hospital


Saturday morning Ron McCune had an episode, for lack of a better word. He went to the ER around 10:00 a.m., thinking it was possibly a heart attack. After tests in ER they decided it was symptomatic of a Mini stroke so the doctors checked him in to do more testing. Today he had an ECO cardiogram and his heart results came back positive and strong. He also had an MRI with the results the he did not have a stroke. This is an immense weight off of all of our minds and hearts.

It looks like the episode and the numbness in his hand and arm were caused by high blood pressure and diabetes. Both of which are very manageable.

The hospital released him about 7:00 p.m. and we are very grateful he is home.

My dad wanted me to pass along his sincere gratitude for all the prayers on his behalf. We have been very blessed and I would ask for your continued thoughts and prayers that he will be able to get his blood pressure and sugar levels under control and start feeling better.

Thanks
Esther McCune

Kenya Report ​February 1, 2019

Kenya Report ​February 1, 2019

Dear Saints,

I would like to add to the message Sherrie sent a day or two ago.

It may be difficult for me to share with you the blessing the Lord is extending to us in this patriarchal ministry here in Africa. How does one adequately express the gentle, quiet Spirit that is here with us? We are in the home of Eric and Pam Odida, which is in one of the suburbs of Kisumu, the third largest city in Kenya. Their home is almost within sight of the shores of Lake Victoria, which is on the Eastern edge of Kenya and almost directly on the equator.

When I say “we,” I mean Brother Eric Odida, Brother Michael Ballantyne, Brother Doug Smith, and
myself. We meet each morning and evening for a short worship to thank the Lord for His blessings and goodness and to ask his help with that which is before us. During the day, we are also blessed to have Kenyan priesthood and members that stop by to visit.

We all recognize that without the Lord’s guidance and strength these blessing would not be given.
Saints, please be aware that what brother Mike is doing is very demanding both physically and
spiritually. Without the gentle and quiet Spirit that is here with us it would not be possible, which, of course, means that your prayers are of great value to the ministry being given.

On Sunday, February 3 rd , Mike and I will worship with one of the local branches. We plan to fly back to Nairobi on the afternoon of February 5 th and spend two days providing blessings to members in the Nairobi area.

Saints, each of us have a strong testimony that this ministry was arranged and is sustained by the Lord. We also believe that it will be a strong blessing to the Saints in East Africa, not just to those receiving these blessings but, as their lives are changed, they in turn will become blessings to others.

I am reminded about an article Brother Eric wrote after the funeral of his grandmother. He said, “for with God nothing can be impossible (Luke 1:37).” Surely this is true.

Book of Mormon Round Table for February (tomorrow night) is canceled due to weather concerns.

Bob is ready with his presentation but the weather is just too iffy with tonight & tomorrow. We would hate for someone to get hurt driving to or walking at Stone Church.

Faye is presenting in March and Rich Rupe in April, so Bob will present tomorrow's presentation in May.

We are all disappointed, but our saints safety comes first! Thank you & see you in March!!

Dear Elder Garland,

Thanks for adding me; just wondering, is there some way that I can introduce myself to other readers, the branch, or can you introduce me?

I’m homebound, due to serious heart condition.
I was brought up with: “don’t pray FOR each other, but together WITH each other”.

I believe our modern ways of communication can in a way connect us in prayers and blessings.

Sometimes I sing, I was a musician student; or I play a blues harp as breath practice and to create happiness.

Because of medication side effects and weakness, speaking with voice is sometimes difficult, and I nap and sleep a lot, but I don’t exclude talking by phone or whatsapp.
Feel free.

- I am living in The Netherlands
(isolated from a declining Mormon presence)

- I support / am interested in Restoration branches and Remnant movement

- I would like to get to know like minded people - from the branch itself or others worldwide

Dream of Howard Parker

----- Forwarded Message -----
From: Howard Parker
hwatchman2@yahoo.com


Dream of Howard Parker

Brothers and sisters, I feel compelled to share with you a dream that I had in mid August. It is not a "thus saith the Spirit", but I feel it to be a spiritual dream, and a warning of preparation to his people. I simply ask that you consider this experience with prayer. I am not a prophet, and am not interested in being a leader. This is a response, I believe, to much prayer over the state of the Church, and asking how we can prepare for the end times ahead.

“And the day shall come that the earth shall rest. But before that day the heavens shall be darkened, and a veil of darkness shall cover the earth; and the heavens shall shake, and also the earth. And great tribulations shall be among the children of men, but my people will I preserve; and righteousness will I send down out of heaven, and truth will I send forth out of the earth, to bear testimony of mine Only Begotten; his resurrection from the dead; yea, and also the resurrection of all men. And righteousness and truth will I cause to sweep the earth as with a flood, to gather out mine own elect from the four quarters of the earth, unto a place which I shall prepare; an holy city, that my people may gird up their loins, and be looking forth for the time of my coming; for there shall be my tabernacle, and it shall be called Zion; a New Jerusalem” Gen.7:67-69

The promise I want to emphasize here is: “my people will I preserve”. Most believe that we are living in the last days, and that this world is only growing darker. This is not an excuse to give up, or take up other interests. This is a day to look up and rejoice, for the Lords coming is nigh. Those of us who grew up in the RLDS faith recognize, at least in part, the trials that will come upon this world, particularly this nation.

Section 105:9a-10a reads “Verily, verily I say unto you, Darkness covereth the earth, and gross darkness the minds of the people, and all flesh has become corrupt before my face. Behold, vengeance cometh speedily upon the inhabitants of the earth--a day of wrath, a day of burning, a day of desolation, of weeping, of mourning, and of lamentation--and as a whirlwind it shall come upon all the face of the earth, saith the Lord. And upon my house shall it begin, and from my house shall it go forth, saith the Lord.” Who knows how all of this will occur, but because of her sins, Micah 3:12 states that “Zion shall be ploughed as a field”.

Honestly, this has never been a pressing issue for me. Perhaps I, like everyone else, thinks about this as something that will happen “later”; that it’s really not my concern. But it has to happen some time, right? If the scriptures prophecy of this, then it has to happen because God has said “my words will not return to me void”.

I pray, constantly, for the people of the Lord, and the gospel going out to the nations. The church, in her present state, is a mess. So I am always asking the Lord what I, or we can do. The Lord seems to give me dreams when he desires to get through to me. I always wake up knowing that this is a message from the Lord. My Grandfather has come to me in night visions, and every time, they’ve come true.

A few weeks ago, he came to me again. In this dream, I began by thanking him for allowing me to bear his name, after which, I asked him a question that I have always wondered about. It seems, growing up, that older people would warn me “be careful what you do; someone in heaven is watching”. Could those that have gone on really watch us? I asked Grandpa if he could see us; observe us. He answered “no”. Surprised, I asked again “so, you can’t watch us”? Again, he said “no”. Makes sense. Why would we go on to our rest, only to have to watch the mess down here?

At this point, he turned to leave, so I grabbed his arm and asked him to give me something, some instruction, advice. He didn’t respond. I asked again, anything. My hopes were that he would give me some spiritual counsel; what he gave me was not at all what I was ready for. He looked right into my eyes and said “within two years, a great volcano will erupt in Wyoming, setting off catastrophic events across this country”. I immediately thought about the San Andreas and New Madrid fault lines. Then another thought hit me: “this will open us up to our enemies”, to which he replied “ yes, and they will come Quickly, led by evil men.” I awoke in a sweat.

Since this event, I’ve started researching, and found an enormous volcano beneath Yellowstone Park. There have been 1400 tremors there in the last two years. There are many articles dealing with this matter. I believe we should prepare.

Anyone who knows me realizes that I don’t seek the spotlight. I’m not a prognosticator of future events. I only know that the time is near, and that we must prepare. The Lord does not want us to fear, but prepare, in faith believing his words “my people will I preserve”. Any temporal preparations we make must be done, not for self preservation, but for the opportunity to witness. Our greatest goal should be, as Captain Moroni sought in Alma 21, is to "prepare the hearts of the people". This will be a time of great confusion and grief. We believers need to stand in the gap and be ready to help. What a day of missionary work it will be!

Since I had this dream, I’ve been praying for direction as to what I am to do with this experience. Do I take it to the church, and risk looking like a fool? Do I ignore it, and if the calamity takes place, and the people were caught unaware, remaining the eternal fool? I just wanted the Lords expectation.

On the night of January 4th, I had another dream. In this dream, I was at our church campground for a reunion. A young woman, probably college age, asked me if I could give her a ride home; that there was nothing here for her. I said "yes", and told her I'd like to discuss this with her. As we got into my car, one brother called me into the dining hall, telling me I was needed. As I entered the room, all of the people were surrounding someone. When I entered the circle, there was a woman, laying on the floor with her head propped up against the wall. I recognized this woman! Only, I remembered her much healthier; she presently looked like she would soon pass away. Believing I was sent to administer to her, I bent over and asked how I could be of service. She then asked me to tell her my dream. Surprised by her request, I knelt down next to her, and shared the dream. When I was done, she exclaimed “I believe it! I believe it!” I looked at her, and to my amazement, she looked much healthier; she had, taken strength. The dream ended.

As I awoke and pondered the dream, my thoughts were taken back to the woman. I knew her! But who was she? I then felt the Lord speak to my mind, and tell me that she was the Church. The young girl represented the youth of the Church. I was going to deal with her, but a more pressing issue came to me: the Church. When the Church responds, so will the youth.

Hymns of Zion - March 30th


A small group of restored gospel saints are working together to select hymns of Zion that we share and love so we can come together and spend an evening sharing through song our love for the Restored Gospel and the coming forth of Zion.
We have rented Stone Church for the evening of Saturday, March 30, 2019 from 7:00-8:00 pm. All of the Restored Gospel family is invited to attend!

If there are any persons who would like to sing in a choir comprised of restored gospel saints, please let us know so we can alert you to the two rehearsals prior to March 30th.

Please see the attached jpeg flyer.

Prayer Request for Gary Inman

----- Forwarded message -----

Prayer Request for Gary Inman


Please pray for a friend of mine, Gary Inman and his grandson. They were gracious and kind to mow my yard for me last summer. Gary's wife passed away last Friday so he is all alone now and needs to move to a smaller home. He is 76 years old and has health problems, but he fell backwards in November and his injuries still cause him a lot of pain. His grandson had received news of a new job just before his grandmother's passing, but it is 200 miles south of here. Gary doesn't want to move there because of his lawncare business here.

If all of you could please pray for both of them while they grieve for their losses and for guidance on making these very difficult decisions.

Thanking all of you in advance and may God bless and keep all of you safe and protected.


Live honestly, Love generously, Care deeply, Speak kindly and Leave the rest to God.

Francis Harper Message February 14, 2019


Dear Ones,

There are great numbers of Christians who have accepted a false doctrine of the rapture of the saints based upon a misinterpretation of Daniel 9:27. They detach the 70th week of this wonderful prophecy and carry it forward and are still waiting for its fulfillment! There is nothing in this prophecy to indicate the time periods mentioned in it are not continuous. Daniel’s prophecy of 70 weeks was fulfilled nearly two thousand years ago.
Howard B. Rand wrote of those who chronologically detach week seventy from the preceding sixty nine weeks of Daniel’s prophecy: “There has never been a more hair-brained theorization of prophecy than that contained in the teachings of those who hold this “parenthesis” or “gap” theory (Rand.1948. Study in Daniel. Page 228).
“This error of detaching week seventy from the rest of Daniel’s prophecy of seventy weeks has given birth to a false theology accepted by millions of faithful Christians today who have been deceived. Those who have accepted this deception believe that at the beginning of the detached week of seven years before Jesus comes, the saints will be raptured. They believe the rapture of the righteous will be followed by seven years of tribulation punctuated at the three and one-half year point by the rise of the antichrist who will sign a peace treaty with Israel. Those who are waiting for these events to transpire before the Lord’s coming have been deceived. Beware of these false teachings.
Those who embrace any of the versions of the rapture theory believe they will be raptured before Jesus comes. Those who think they will be raptured at least 3 ½ years before the Lord comes have been deceived. The Lord will quite likely come while they are still waiting to be raptured! They will be numbered with the foolish virgins spoken of in the Parable of the Virgins (Matthew 25:1-12).
When Jesus was asked: “What is the sign of thy coming?” He answered: “Take heed that no man deceive you” (Matthew 24:4-5). The truth is the Lord can come at any time, even today. “Be ye also ready; for in such an hour as ye think not, the Son of Man cometh” (Matthew 24:51 IV; 24:44 KJV).

My Love to All,

Francis Harper

The Prophecy of Seventy Weeks


I have been asked, “Why don’t you believe in the rapture?” Although the word rapture is not used in the Scriptures, I do believe the saints who are alive when Jesus comes will be “caught up together into the clouds to meet the Lord in the air” (1 Thessalonians 4:17). This “catching up” at the time of the Lord’s second coming could be called a rapture but it is quite different than the rapture theory based upon a misinterpretation of Daniel’s prophecy of 70 weeks, which is recorded in Daniel 9:25-27. I will endeavor to give the correct interpretation of this prophecy.



The prophecy of 70 weeks delivered to Daniel by Gabriel is very important because it gives a bird’s-eye view of the future history of the nation of Israel and the coming and ministry of the Messiah.
We will begin with Daniel 9:25: “Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem, . . .” Ezra, the priest and scribe of Israel was commissioned to go forth and lead the Israelites back to Jerusalem to restore and build it in 457 B.C. This marks the beginning of the 70 weeks of years.
Continuing with Daniel 9:25: “. . . unto Messiah the Prince shall be 7 weeks and three score and two weeks [69 weeks = 483 years], 457 B.C. + 483 years = 27 A.D. Jesus was born in 4 B.C. In 27 A.D. he would have been 30 years old. “And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age” (Luke 3:30 IV; 3:23 KJV). This was his age at the time of his baptism and the beginning of his public ministry. The period beginning with year 457 B.C. and adding 70 weeks, or 490 years, ends in 34 A.D. Beginning with the Lord’s ministry in A.D. 27 and adding the 70th week [7 years] = A.D. 34. Jesus was crucified after 3 ½ years of ministry in 31 A.D. During the remaining 3 ½ years of the 70th week the Lord’s “other sheep” received his ministry, 31-34 A.D.
Gabriel continues as it is recorded in Daniel 9:26: “And after [the] three score and two weeks [7 + 62 = 69 weeks] shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself . . .” According to Strong’s Concordance the Hebrew word for cut-off means allotted, separated or decreed. It does not indicate the death of Jesus. It simply means that after 483 years the ministry of the Messiah would begin. The earthly ministry of Jesus was limited to the House of Israel. He said: “I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the House of Israel” (Matthew 15:23 IV; 15:24 KJV). After the 70th week, the gospel was extended to the Gentiles.
Gabriel’s final words in Daniel 9:27 are a prophecy of the earthly ministry of Jesus and his servants in the 70th week: “And he [the Messiah] shall confirm the covenant with many for one week . . .”. Until the midst [middle] of the week [3 ½ years] Jesus personally ministered to the Jews [Judah] in the land of Jerusalem. During the last 3 ½ years of the 70th week, Jesus brought ministry to his “other sheep:” “And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice . . . (John 10:16).
The Lord gave personal ministry to his “other sheep” in Meso-America, and in other places during the final 3 ½ years of the 70th week. Jesus certainly confirmed the covenant with many in the Western Hemisphere during that period. Jesus told the “other sheep” of Meso-America: “And verily, verily, I say unto you, that I have other sheep which are not of this land; neither of the land of Jerusalem . . . who have not heard my voice . . . I shall go unto them (3 Nephi 7:20, 24-26).
Continuing with Gabriel’s message, in Daniel 9:27: “. . . in the midst of the week [at the mid-point of the 70th week, or 3 ½ years after his public ministry began] he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, . . .” At the time of the Feast of Passover in the spring of 31 A.D., the Lamb of God was slain. The veil of the temple was rent, signifying that the sacrificial system had ended. This was “the great and last sacrifice . . . an infinite and eternal sacrifice . . . there should be a stop to the shedding of blood; then shall the law of Moses be fulfilled . . . and that great and last sacrifice will be the Son of God” (Alma 16:210-215).
The final words of Gabriel recorded in Daniel 9:27 are these: . . . and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” Gabriel did not paint a pretty picture for the House of Israel.
Jesus wept over Jerusalem. He, as Gabriel, used the word desolate in describing the Jews. “O Jerusalem! Jerusalem! Ye who kill the prophets, and will stone them who are sent unto you; how often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and ye would not. Behold, your house is left unto you desolate!” (Matthew 23:36-38).

Writings of Jonathan Cahn

​Dear Saints and Fellow Citizens of this Nation:

Recently, I have been reading some writings of Jonathan Cahn I have found very informative
about the progressive changes which have and are taking place in our nation and our lives. If
you have already read them, you know what I am talking about. However, if you haven’t read
them, I strongly, and urgently, recommend you do so.

The three books which I have read, and recommend, are:

1) The Harbinger: the Ancient Mystery that holds the Secret of America’s Future; 2011;
published by Front Line.

2) The Mystery of the Shemitah: the 3000-year-old Mystery that holds the Secret of
America’s Future, the World’s Future … and Your Future; 2014; published by Front
Line.

3) The Paradigm; 2017; published by Front Line.

Many citizens of this nation, and of the Restoration movement, have fallen prey to what is
described and discussed in these books. Jonathan Cahn has been blessed in calling the reader to
acknowledge and heed the “warning” offered.

May we submit our wills humbly, and promptly, to the teachings and beckoning of the Lord
God Almighty?

May God Bless,
Cloyce Coffman

Francis Harper Message for 2/8/2019

Francis Harper Message for 2/8/2019

Dear Ones,

January 27, 1995, was the 50th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, the most infamous of the Nazi concentration camps of World War II. There were an estimated 1.5 million people exterminated at this place of death between 1940 – 1945. Auschwitz and the other concentration camps were designed as instruments of terror by the leaders of the Third Reich. The deaths were caused by exposure, starvation, beatings, electrocution, excessive hard labor, medical experimentation, gas chambers, and firing squads. This was a holocaust. We dare not forget how evil man can become in a nation whose leaders turn away from God, and when citizens blindly accept their leadership.

In the midst of that dark night of horrors, a man stepped forward to take another man’s punishment. There’s no greater love.

A sergeant, a tough professional soldier, had just been picked by the SS for one of the most cruel deaths at Auschwitz. He would be stripped of his clothing, and placed in an empty, underground cell, and left without food and water, until he died. The condemned man sobbed for his wife, and children. He was ignored by his captors.

Suddenly, another prisoner stepped forward, and offered to die for the sergeant. This was not a momentary impulse in the man who had just offered to die. This was his way of life. He had walked the way of the cross for many years. This man of God was Maximilian Kolbe, a Catholic priest; Saint of Auschwitz. Many years before he had accepted the invitation of Jesus, to come and die. His willingness to die, for someone else, was rooted deep within his personality. It was a very natural thing for him to do.

Later, the pardoned sergeant Gajownicezek said; “I could only try to thank him with my eyes. I was stunned, and could hardly grasp what was happening. The immensity of it: I, the condemned, am to live, and someone else has willingly and voluntarily offered to lay down his life for me, a stranger! Is this a dream, or reality? . . .”

Sergeant Gajownicezek had witnessed the love of God in a man. God’s love revealed in a man gives us hope. The Sgt. longed to thank his “Savior.” “I could only thank him with my eyes!”

In many ways we are like the condemned sergeant. We will spiritually die without our Savior. “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.” (1 Corinthians 15:22). How can we ever thank Him?

A few years ago, Iris and I attended the movie, Schindler’s List. One of the closing statements made by Oskar Schindler, who had saved many from the gas chambers of World War II, was, “I could have saved more.” This statement has haunted me to this day. I hope and pray that I will be privileged to bring many to the Lord.

Our task is not to save souls. Our job is to bring people to the Savior who saves to the uttermost: “. . . he is able to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them” (Hebrews 7:24).

Lord, save us! There’s no greater love than yours. Because of your love for us we want to accept the call to martyrdom, in life or in death, according to your will. Help us to become “partakers of your divine nature.” (2 Peter 1:6).

My Love to All,

Francis Harper

No Greater Love



During this month dedicated to hearts and flowers, and expressions of love, we need to remember these words of Jesus; “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends, ye are my friends . . .” (John 15).

Jesus taught and demonstrated that the highest type of love is self sacrificing. Our lives should be a free-will offering in service to others. Jesus challenges us to enter the way of the cross. “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me” (Matthew 16:24). Sounds kind of stupid, doesn’t it? “. . . the preaching of the cross is to them that perish, foolishness! (1 Corinthians 1:18). Jesus explained; “whosoever will save his life, shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life . . . shall find it” (Matthew 16:25).

A famous martyr once said; “Jesus asks us to come and die.” This is His invitation: “Come and die!” Probably not many of us will have the opportunity to die for another person, or persons, but all of us can be a “living sacrifice.” The Apostle Paul wrote: “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies, a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service” (Romans 12:1).

We have been called to take up the cross first borne by Jesus. We are called to love without limits as Jesus loved. Much of Christian preaching today is focused on what Jesus can do for us! We need to return to preaching the great commandments; To love God and neighbor.

It has been said, “there is only one way to say, “I love you,” but there are thousands of ways we can show others that we love them.

Paul said love is demonstrated by our patience, kindness and humility. Those filled with love are not easily offended when they are mistreated. They are quick to forgive.

The minds of those who love are not filled with evil surmising. They think of those things that are true, honest and just. Their hearts are pure. They rarely complain. They can see the good in others. Their lives are devoted to serving and alleviating the burdens of their brothers and sisters.

We are called to bear the burdens of others. “Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2). The burdens our neighbors are carrying may be physical, spiritual or emotional. Are we quick to observe the needs of those around us and ever-ready to offer immediate assistance?

During the night of April 15, 2004, I was blessed with a spiritual dream. I was in a hotel lobby in an unknown, foreign city. I was greeting some people who were sitting on a couch, one of whom was a taller man sitting in the middle. As I took his hand to greet him, I immediately sensed he was having a heart attack. I knew that he was dying.

I was panic-stricken! I tried to enlist someone to assist me, but the people seemed to ignore me, or could not understand what I was saying! I had difficulty finding a telephone to call an emergency medical team. When I did reach an operator, I did not know the name or location of the hotel, and no one seemed to be willing or able to help me! Finally, in desperation, I asked a lady at the desk to help me. Although we could not understand each other verbally, she somehow understood what was needed and quickly made the call.

When I turned to see how the sick man was doing, I was surprised to see that he was gone! I immediately began to search for him, and when I finally found him, he was being cared for by the most wonderful rescue team that I had ever witnessed. Their medical skills were enhanced by the great love and compassion they had for my unknown friend. He was feeling much better and appeared to be so happy and grateful that he had been saved from death! I rejoiced with him and with those who were so skillfully attending to his needs.

The Lord is calling for volunteers to serve on His rescue team.
