PDF version Restoration Business Directory
I am putting together a PDF Restoration Business Directory. So I am asking all Restoration Business owners, Independent Contractors or Distributers Consultants etc. to send me:
- Name of your Business
- Phone number
- Email address
- 1-2 sentence description of products, services, or Special offers
Who can submit their business—ANY Person or business who is affiliated with a church that dates their origins back to 1860 or to Joseph Smith III living ANYWHERE IN THE USA.
This directory will have two sections—
Section 1: Businesses will be organized alphabetically by Categories
- Home (roofing, remodeling, carpentry, plumbing etc)
- Vehicle (sales, repairs, custom work, RV etc)
- Business/Finance. (CPA, Consultants, Investments, Financial Planning, Marketing Lawyers)
- Education. (Teachers, tutors, educational specialists)
- Medical (Private Practice, Chiropractors, Therapists)
- Vacation/Entertainment. (Rentals, Tour/hunting guides, Campgrounds etc)
- Food (Restaurants, Food Trucks, Catering Services, health food stores)
- Products/Services (Clothing lines, Cosmetics, supplements, Jewelry)
If your business does not fit in one of these categories, don’t worry; I can add more categories if needed.
Section 2: By State
Because this directory will be formatted for distribution digitally, it can be used as a good resource for people living outside the Centerplace as well. The goal is to help ALL restoration business to increase leads, sales and growth so as to further the building up the Kingdom of God.
And Because there will be no printing costs (unless the local pastor wants to print copies for the members of his branch) this business directory is free to all who wish to have a copy.
It is my goal to have this directory ready for distribution by the beginning of September or in two months. So I am asking everyone who sees this letter to share it with anyone they know who owns a business; because that faster I can build a strong and comprehensive list, the more time I have to work on formatting and the faster I can get this directory out to all who wish to invest their time and moneys into these wonderful Restoration Businesses and Services.

From: Erica Bailey
Invitation to area Zion's Leagues from RCI's Leadership Camp
In this new role as editor and having made the initial contact to confirm your email addresses etc I realize how little I know about everyone. As suggested by Elder Noel Rowlatt, I invite you to all to share something about yourselves, to be printed over the coming months as part of our 'Getting to Know You' - for those, who like myself would like to know you all better. It needn’t be too personal but you might include the area you are from, family members, your nearest branch and how you came to be a member. Were you born and raised in the Church or did you join later?
Anyone can send something in. For the busy parents, ask your children to write something. I look forward to hearing from you all.
Your Sister In Christ, Monique.
