Seventy Doug Patterson along with his wife, Donna, returned Sunday, July 25th, from a four week trip into Iowa, South Dakota, and Nebraska. Their primary focus was to follow-up contact with the Lakota at Pine Ridge and Omaha at Macy, Nebraska. They also visited some scattered saints along the way. The trip showed that the Lord is preparing His vineyard for harvest.

Seventies Steve DeVera and Bill Leutzinger left today for India and will be providing ministry with Seventy Ananda Rao for the next couple of weeks. There are many, many saints there that are in the process of forming Restoration Branches, leaving the Community of Christ. One key purpose for this trip is to train the priesthood about the differences between the two organizations so that the saints can be better informed to make their decision. Upholding the fullness of the gospel in purity as restored via Joseph Smith, Jr. is a key thrust of the Restoration Seventy in bringing people to Jesus Christ.
