Francis Harper Message for 8/16/2019


Pleasing God


“By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him; for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please him; for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” (Hebrews 11:5-6).

Our relationship with God begins with faith. Knowing that he is, is the first step toward pleasing him. The first step toward having a perfect knowledge of God is having “a desire to believe” (Alma 16:151). Who can say they have a perfect knowledge of God?



The attainment of a perfect knowledge of God is still a work in progress for most of us. Jesus expressed his displeasure with his disciples who were unable to cast out an evil spirit by saying, “O faithless generation!” Then Jesus said to the father of the child who was troubled with the evil spirit: “If thou wilt believe all things I shall say unto you, this is possible to him that believeth. And immediately the father of the child cried out, and said, with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief” (Mark 9:16, 20-21). This should be the prayer of all whose faith is not yet perfect.

“And so great was the faith of Enoch, that he led the people of God . . . and it came to pass in his days, that he built a city that was called the city of Holiness, even Zion . . . and lo! Zion in process of time was taken up into heaven” (Genesis 7:15, 25, 27 I.V.). Enoch’s City which was caught up into heaven is a type and shadow of those who “shall be caught up together into the clouds . . . to meet the Lord in the air” at the time of his second coming (1 Thessalonians 4:17).

The people of Enoch “were of one heart and of one mind, and dwelt in righteousness; and there were no poor among them” (Genesis 7:23 I.V.). If we who call ourselves the people of God today do not reach the standard set by the city of Enoch, it is highly unlikely that we will be among those who will be caught up to meet the Lord when he comes!

Becoming righteous as the people were in the days of Enoch, is still possible for us who live today, but we must not procrastinate, in our efforts to become zionic. “Have ye walked, keeping yourself blameless before God? . . . Behold are ye stripped of pride? I say unto you, if ye are not, ye are not prepared to meet God. Behold, ye must prepare quickly, for the Kingdom of heaven is soon at hand, and such an one hath not eternal life” (Alma 3:47, 50-51).

“For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith; but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him” (Hebrews 10:37-38).

But he who endures, “giving all diligence, adding to his faith virtue; and to virtue, knowledge; And to knowledge, temperance; and to temperance, patience; and to patience, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, charity”; will “before his translation, be given this testimony, that he pleased God” (2 Peter 1:5-7; Hebrews 11:5).

Our Heavenly Father introduced his Son Jesus on at least four occasions, using these words: “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” (Matthew 3, Matthew 17, 3 Nephi 5 and Church History, Vol. 1, Pages 8-10). If we walk in the steps of Jesus, God will be well pleased with us also!

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

Dear Ones,

I have selected thirty-one ways we can please God. One for each day of the months of thirty-one days. I challenge each of you to please God each day by reading and doing as each scripture suggests. During the shorter months it will be necessary to concentrate on more than one scripture on a few days. This exercise could be repeated each month. The quotes listed are paraphrased. Please read the references directly from the Scriptures.

Day 1 “Without faith it is impossible to please him” (Hebrews 11:6).

2 “I do always those things that please God” (John 8:29).

3 “Whosoever confesses me before men I will confess before my Father” (Matthew 10:28).

4 “. . . Nathanael, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!” (John 1:47-51).

5 “God loveth a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7).

6 “He that hath my commandments and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me” (John 14:21).

7 “A broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise” (Psalm 51:17).

8 “If any man serve me, him will my Father honor” (John 12:26).

9 “In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:18).

10 “Behold to obey is better than sacrifice . . .” (1 Samuel 15:22).

11 “The Lord looks to show himself strong to those with a perfect heart” (2 Chronicles 16:9).

12 “Joy shall be in heaven over one that repents” (Luke 15:7).

13 “Ye are bought with a price, therefore glorify God . . .” (1 Corinthians 6:20).

14 “He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him” (Hebrews 11:6).

15 “When a man’s ways please the Lord, he will have peace . . .” (Proverbs 16:7).

16 “So they that are after the flesh cannot please God” (Romans 8:8).

17 “Before his translation, Enoch had this testimony, that he pleased God” (Hebrews 11:5).

18 “They that feared the Lord and thought upon his name, shall be mine . . .” (Malachi 3:16-17).

19 “The Lord delighteth in the chastity of women” (Jacob 2:36).

20 “Your wives and children whose feelings are tender are pleasing to God” (Jacob 2:7).

21 Those who have the virtues listed in the beatitudes please the Lord (Matthew 5:3-13).

22 “Blessed are all they that hear the word of the Lord and do it” (Luke 11:29).

23 “To this man will I look, who has a contrite spirit” (Isaiah 66:2).

24 “Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord and walks in his ways” (Psalm 28:1).

25 “If my people humble themselves and pray, I will forgive their sin, and heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).

26 “Blessed is the faithful servant who feeds the flock” (Luke 12:51).

27 “Be ye separate . . . and I will receive you” (2 Corinthians 6:17).

28 The people of Ammon, were distinguished for their zeal towards God . . . they were perfectly honest and upright in all things . . . they were a highly favored people” (Alma 15:31-35).

29 “For it is God which worketh in you . . . to do his good pleasure” (Philippians 2:13).

30 “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly” (Psalm 1).

31 “Such as are upright in their way are his delight” (Proverbs 11:20).

Volunteers and Supplies Needed for 2 IIAW Projects


Volunteers and Supplies Needed for 2 IIAW Projects, Bibles to Kenya and Upcoming Events

August 14, 2019

Dear, Saints,

The Independence Is Alive and Well Initiative needs volunteers to help organize and shelve donated items for the Jesus Store at the Unity Center of Independence. Also, shelving for the Jesus Store has been donated and will need to be installed. The Center is open Mondays through Wednesday from 9am to 2pm. The Jesus Store is designed to immediately supply homeless and underserved Beloveds in Independence with personal hygiene items, clothes, shoes, etc. The Center is located at 803 W. 23rd Street, (Union at 23rd). This service is a way to meet immediate needs while the Center is undergoing renovation. If you can assist, contact Billy Tharp at 816-695-0621, glmsetfree@yahoo.com or Muriel Luedeman at 816-726-8425, mur620@gmail.com

The next mission trip to Standing Rock, North Dakota to take the gospel and relief to Standing Rock Reservation is planned for Labor Day weekend. The S.R. Reservation Council has asked for computers and printers, and bicycles, to improve the quality of life in that area. Also, more box fans, household items, sewing machines, tools, cleaning supplies, and winter clothing are greatly needed - coats, jackets, boots, and blankets. Pastor Brian Carline, of Team Jesus, KC, has asked for 5 – 7 computers and printers, and 10 bikes to go up this trip.

On August 7th, Pastor Carline met with Eric Odida to discuss ways to connect and network together to meet needs in the Center Place and in Kenya. Eric toured the Unity Center and a strong working relationship was established between the two men. With a commitment to prayer, plans are being made for a Team Jesus mission trip to Kenya to help supply Bibles to Kenyan youth and start outreach to thwart gambling, prostitution, and sex trafficking.

The next general IIAW meeting is August 27th at 6:30pm at the Unity Center. This is a good time to come and hear the progress being made with the center’s building renovation, neighborhood outreach, growth of services at the center to serve the needs of the community, and future projects.

Please pray for the IIAW. There are so many needs, so many people to be reached, so many ways to serve, and so much healing needed in the whole body of Christ, so that the Kingdom can be established and thrive in Independence.

At your service in Jesus Christ,

Muriel Luedeman

Francis Harper Message for 8-9-2019


Dear Ones,

We live in a material world; the world we experience with our five senses. We call this the “real” world. I ask: is there a dimension that we cannot see with our natural vision; which is also very real?

I must say there are many unseen realities. There is a world that lies beyond this temporal and material one. This world which we cannot see with the natural eye, is more than a creation of our imaginations. There is an eternal realm that is just as real as the one we presently occupy. It is the eternal world that will never pass away. Paul, the apostle, wrote: “For here [in this tangible world] have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come” (Hebrews 13:14).

Since the eternal world cannot be seen with the natural eye, many say it does not exist. Many of the same persons, who cannot accept the eternal verities, can readily accept the invisible world of the atom with its central nucleus and orbiting electrons! The invisible realities of our physical universe bear a silent testimony of hidden spiritual realities.

Our scientists dedicate themselves to the hidden mysteries of the physical universe. We should seek with the same intensity, a better understanding of the spiritual realities. Jesus said, “And I say unto you, ask, and it shall be given unto you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” (Luke 11:10). “We look not at the things which are seen, but at the things that are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:18).

At a certain point in the earthly ministry of Jesus “. . . many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, will ye also go away? Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life” (John 6:66-68). The same is true in our nation today; there are many nominal Christians who are walking no more with him. The words of Jesus are still the trustworthy source of our knowledge of the eternal world. He said, “I will prepare a place for you, and come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, ye may be also” (John 14:3).

The majority of those who came to our country and built our nation, were spiritual pilgrims. They came to our shores seeking for far more than silver and gold. They came seeking a better understanding of their invisible God. Most of them were as “strangers and pilgrims” on this earth, for in their hearts, they were seeking a “better country, that is, a heavenly; wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; for he hath prepared for them a city” (Hebrews 11:13, 16). These seekers have always been the strength of our nation.

Open my eyes, that I may see,
Glimpses of truth Thou hast for me.
Silently now I wait for thee,
Ready my God thy will to see;
Open my eyes illumine me,
Spirit divine! Amen.
(Hymns of the Restora
tion #244)

My Love to All,

High Priest Francis Harper

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



“Look, ye blind, that ye may see.”

Isaiah 42:18

Having 20/20 vision is not good enough. Jesus came to give sight to the blind. None are so blind as those who are spiritually blind. Isaiah prophesied: “. . . I will send my servant unto you who are blind . . . and they shall be perfect not withstanding their blindness, if they will hearken unto the messenger, the Lord’s servant. Thou art a people, seeing many things, but thou observeth not. The Lord is not pleased with such a people . . .” (Isaiah 42:19-21).

The messenger, the Lord’s servant, is Jesus. He said to those who had gathered to the synagogue in Nazareth on the Sabbath day: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor (in spirit), he hath sent me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives (of Satan), and the recovering of sight to the blind; to set at liberty them that are bruised; to preach the acceptable year of the Lord” (Isaiah 61:1-2; Luke 4:18). When we are blessed by the presence of the Holy Spirit we can see the invisible things of the Lord and his everlasting kingdom.

Jesus healed the physically blind on many occasions but he is most concerned with our spiritual blindness. Jesus came primarily to open our spiritual eyes. “Where there is no vision, the people perish” (Proverbs 29:18). There are some applicable words in the hymn, “I Have Found the Glorious Gospel”: “My once blind eyes are open, my sins are washed away, And the kingdom I can very plainly see” (Hymns of the Restoration #195). One of the most beloved hymns in all Christendom is Amazing Grace, which includes these words: “I once was lost but now am found, Was blind but now I see” (Hymns of the Saints #104).

The Book of Mormon has much to say about spiritual blindness. “Wo unto the blind, that will not see; for they shall perish . . .” (2 Nephi 6:66). “O ye wicked and ye perverse generation; ye hardened and ye stiff-necked people, how long will ye suppose that the Lord will suffer (with) you; yea, how long will ye suffer yourselves to be led by foolish and blind guides; yea, how long will ye choose darkness rather than light?” (Helaman 5:40).

Jesus warned his disciples to beware of the Pharisees. “Let them alone; they be blind leaders of the blind; and if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch” (Matthew 15:13, IV; 15:14 KJV). “. . . Take heed and beware of the leaven (doctrine) of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees” (Matthew 16:7 IV; 16:6 KJV).

We should be forever grateful for being able to see the things of God which are invisible to the natural eye. “For God hath revealed unto men the invisible things of him: (Romans 1:20). Moses “forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible” (Hebrews 11:27). Giving thanks unto the Father . . . who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son . . . who is the image of the invisible God, the first-born . . . for by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and are in earth, visible and invisible . . .” (Colossians 1:12-16).

How wonderful it is to be able to see through the veil which separates us from our loved ones who have preceded us in the death of our mortal bodies. Through our eyes of faith we can catch a glimpse of “the things which God hath prepared for them that love him . . . God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit; for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God . . . that are freely given to us of God” (1 Corinthians 2:9-12).

Francis Harper Message for 8/2/2019


Dear Ones,

I have a beloved brother in Christ who lives in the boundary waters of northern Minnesota. We became acquainted at the first “Barn Reunion,” which was held in 1997. Christians from many areas and denominations attended these reunions.

“Brother Victor” had been a communist, and an alcoholic before his conversion. His wife Barbara had asked him for a divorce as a Christmas gift one year! During their visit at our home earlier this year, Victor told me that one of his former drinking buddies had asked him to come to his place to do some welding for him. As they were traveling to do the welding, Victor had a captive audience so he began to witness of Jesus. His friend became agitated by this and said with some disgust; “Don’t give me any of this Jesus stuff, you used to be normal, like the rest of us.” His friend did not realize he was complimenting Brother Victor! Being “normal” in today’s world, is less than what the Lord expects of us.

I urge you to be different; peculiar. John wrote: “We know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him” (1 John 3:2). If we become like Jesus, we may be ridiculed by some of our neighbors but this should not deter us from striving to be more like him every day.

Lehi, a prophet who lived in Jerusalem before the Babylonian captivity was given a vision in which he saw some people who had partaken of the good fruit of the tree of life who “cast their eyes about as if they were ashamed.” And Lehi beheld “a great and spacious building . . . and it was filled with people . . . and their manner of dress was exceeding fine; and they were in the attitude of mocking and pointing their fingers towards those who had come . . . and were partaking of the fruit. And after they had tasted of the fruit they were ashamed, because of those who were scoffing at them; and they fell away into forbidden paths and were lost . . . And great was the multitude that did enter that strange [great and spacious] building. And after they did enter that building they did point the finger of scorn at me, and those that were partaking of the fruit also; but we heeded them not . . . for as many as heeded them had fallen away” (1 Nephi 2:70-84).

Our granddaughter Whitney, had two spiritual dreams in 2011. She was only 15 at that time. In the first dream she was in a shopping mall with some of her friends. She also saw a person there who was dressed in a white flowing robe. She recognized that it was Jesus. In the second dream she was in the same mall but she was not accompanied by her friends. But the person dressed in white was there. She interpreted the dream to mean that your friends may abandon you but the Lord never will! He is the friend that “sticketh closer than a brother” (Proverbs 18:24). “What a friend we have in Jesus.” He is our best friend!

Whitney was comforting a friend Hannah, who was weeping. Hannah was often bullied due to her Christian faith and daily walk. As a result of her compassionate concern for her friend, whom other girls habitually picked on, Whitney was called a “traitor.” This experience prompted her to put a message on Face Book, February 8, 2012, saying, “I will stand for right, even if I have to stand alone. I hate to see people hurting, and seeing people do nothing about it. Well, that is not me! I’m gonna try to make a difference in peoples’ lives even if I’m standing alone without my friends, because really, I am not alone, because God is always with me.” “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13).

My Love to All,

High Priest Francis Harper

Becoming A Peculiar and Sanctified People


“Ye shall walk after the Lord your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. . . . and the Lord hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth” (Deuteronomy 13:4; 14:2).



The Lord’s people will always be a minority and a minority is powerless if it conforms with the majority. Only by becoming peculiar, will the children of God fulfill their calling. Paul wrote, “I beseech [plead, beg] you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, . . . be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove [know] what that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God is” (Romans 12:1-2).

Paul counseled: “. . . ye 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. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty” (2 Corinthians 6:16-18).

In a latter day revelation, God’s people were admonished: “Go ye out from among the nations, even from Babylon, from the midst of wickedness, which is spiritual Babylon (Doctrine and Covenants 108:4-b).

God does not call us to a monastic lifestyle, or to live in a monastery! We are called to be in the world, but not of it. There were saints even “in Caesar’s household” (Philippians 4:22). Being in the world and not of it is a mighty challenge for the humble followers of Christ. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, come out of her [Babylon], my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities” (Revelation 18:4-5).

Far too often we are not the peculiar people we are called to be! We tend to be like the chameleon, blending in with the world around us. If we were accused and taken to court for being a Christian would there be enough evidence to convict us?

Are we like the salt that has lost it’s savor? Jesus said: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, I give unto you to be the salt of the earth; but if the salt shall lose its savor, wherewith shall the earth be salted? The salt shall thence be good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men” (Matthew 5:15 IV; 15:13 KJV). The Lord is counting on his peculiar people to be the salt of the earth.

Heaven forbid that we become as the inhabitants of Jerusalem in the days of Jesus, who called “themselves of the Holy City but they did not stay themselves upon the God of Israel, who is the Lord of hosts” (1 Nephi 6:9). They did not rely upon God for his strength and wisdom. And when he [Jesus] was come near, he beheld the city [Jerusalem], and wept over it” (Luke 19:40 IV; 19:41 KJV).

Let us be as the more humble part of the people in the days of Helaman, son of Alma, He wrote: The more humble part of people “did fast and pray oft, and did grow stronger and stronger in their humility, and firmer and firmer in the faith of Christ unto the filling their souls with joy and consolation, yea, even to the purifying and the sanctification of their hearts, which sanctification cometh because of their yielding their hearts unto God” (Helaman 2:31).

Prayer Request from Hal Edwards

Prayer Request from Hal Edwards


A friend of mine at work needs prayers. Her son is disabled and he has a cancer that he has to have surgery for in two weeks. I would ask for prayers for Patrick and his Mom that the surgery would go well and that my friend would have the strength that she needs to get through this. She is an amazing lady and an inspiration to all of us at work.

And also my dad, Harold Edwards, Sr. is going to be having cochlear implant surgery to hopefully help his hearing in about two weeks also. I would again ask for prayers that the surgery would go well, and that he will have a blessing with it. His hearing has been really bad for a long time and he gets really depressed over it. I am praying that this will help him. He gets pretty discouraged.

Thank you for your consideration. I am a firm believer in the power of prayer.

215-day Inspired Version (Bible) Reading Challenge

----- Forwarded Message -----

215-day Inspired Version (Bible) Reading Challenge

August 5, 2019 to May 29, 2020

"Thou shalt ask, and my Scriptures shall be given as I have appointed, and they shall be preserved in safety; and it is expedient that thou shouldst hold thy peace concerning them, and not teach them until thou hast received them in full.
And I give unto you a commandment, that then ye shall teach them unto all men; for they shall be taught unto all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people."
(Doctrine and Covenants 42:15).

Last fall into spring, we had a 100-day Book of Mormon Reading Challenge https://www.facebook.com/groups/243083412444025/ in which we have 695 members, with at least 24 states and 11 countries that publicly committed to joining us on this reading challenge.
This time frame coincided with The Book of Mormon Foundation reading challenge.

After that reading challenge concluded, there were exactly 40 business days (Monday through Friday) until the last day of May, so an additional Facebook page was created https://www.facebook.com/groups/411832359625118/ in which we had 116 members that joined that new page.

June and July was a time to pause with a reading challenge, so we could enjoy various camps, family camps, reunions, retreats, etc.

With school starting up, starting next Monday until the last business day of May 2020, there are 215 business days (Monday through Friday).

The Inspired Version Reading Challenge can be found here on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/640918639717624/about/
Currently, we have 122 members and know that this number can be easily doubled, in a few days.

I spent numerous hours putting together a "Read through the Inspired Version (Bible) in 215 days."

I downloaded the Inspired Version into Excel and counted the words in each chapter in each book.

I counted 805,748 words.

215 days allows for the months of June and July, along with Saturdays and Sundays, with no scheduled readings,

In my opinion, having no scheduled readings on the weekends, is advantageous in many ways.
his can allow for those to catch-up with the scheduled reading, focus on family time, etc.

Below are few notes on the prepared schedule:

1. All the books, prior to Revelation, is an average of 3,834 words/day.

2. Daily readings of Revelation is only 1,519 words/day.

3. Psalms and Proverbs readings will be scattered on most Old Testament reading days.

4. The month of December will pivot to Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, not including the Holy Week, in the last few chapters of each book.

5. The last day of the Old Testament will be Thursday, April 9.

6. Good Friday (April 10th) is the reading of Matthew 26-28, followed by the last few chapters of Mark, Luke and John, that following Monday through Wednesday.

To quote Daniel Webster:

"If we work upon marble, it will perish;
if we work upon brass, time will efface it;
if we rear temples, they will crumble into dust;
but if we work upon immortal souls,
if we imbue them with immortal principles,
with a just fear of God and a love of their fellow men,
we engrave on those tablets something which will brighten all eternity."

FRAUD ALERT by U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services (DHHS)

FRAUD ALERT by U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services (DHHS)

This alleged scam specifically targets the senior population across several states. “Marketing representatives” are visiting senior-living communities, such as assisted living and residential care facilities, as well as, other various locations where the senior population often congregate and offer to perform genetic testing for the purpose of disease detection and prevention. These individuals are using personal information collected from those who participate for identity theft and fraudulent billing purposes.

Additional information regarding this scam is noted in the text below, as well as, the links to the two recent articles discussing the scam in detail.

DHHS Fraud Alert:
https://oig.hhs.gov/fraud/consumer-alerts/alerts/geneticscam.asp

Impact across many states:
https://www.insurancejournal.com/news/nation/2019/04/18/524185.htm

The scammers typically try to determine if the person has Medicare or Medicaid and might host an event, such as bingo with prizes or food, to entice the residents to participate. Sometimes announcements are made to all residents over the building’s intercom system in order to attract them to the event.
They may be dressed in scrubs or white coats to give the appearance they are a health care professional and in some cases, they may indicate they represent a medical research facility.
The victims are usually asked to complete a questionnaire and ask whether any of the individual’s relatives have had cancer or other diseases. They indicate a genetic test can be conducted to determine if the individuals already have a disease, or if they are susceptible to acquiring a specific condition. In some cases, they indicate the test will tell whether the combination of prescription and over the counter medications the individual is taking may have undesired interactions or adverse effects on their metabolism.
If the individual agrees to be tested, the representative obtains their Medicare of Medicaid numbers and uses a swab to take a saliva sample from inside their mouth. The individual may to may not be asked to sign the questionnaire and they are typically told the test results will be sent to them in several weeks, usually somewhere between four and eight weeks. The individual may or may not receive the results of a lab test later.

2010 Hyundai Elantra GLS 90K For Sale


Hello!

My husband and I have just purchased a larger vehicle so we are looking to sell my car. I bought the car new when I moved out her a few years ago so I have been the only owner. For the past few years I have just been using it to drive back and forth work. It is a 2010 Hyundai Elantra GLS with just over 90,000 miles on it and it still under warranty (non-transferable).

Attached are some pictures of the car and I can provide move if you are interested. We are asking $6,200 but are willing to accept less from someone in this group. It is black exterior/interior, has a moon roof, rear spoiler, and is in really great condition. I have kept detailed maintenance records that I can share. Feel free to call/text me at 816-547-1971 or email gaylesdunning@gmail.com if you know someone who might be interested!

Thanks, Gayle
