Seventy Retreat

February 7-9, 2014

The Restoration Seventy gathered in Independence Missouri to spend a weekend in fellowship, instruction and worship.  Four of our brethren from foreign lands were able to join us for the entire weekend, enriching our activities as well as our love for each other.  Each day was begun and ended in worship with classes of instruction presented in between.  Fellowship permeated from beginning to close and travel to and from our homes each day. We were especially blessed to have Brother Fred Greene join us for our Saturday morning sacrament service then to sit under his ministry as he shared his hope and vision for the Seventy as well as the upcoming conference as we seek to unify the saints and grow the work of the Kingdom. Sunday morning after worship and a period of instruction the brethren will travel to share with some of the branches as well as one of the local branches of the Restoration Church and a group of us will worship with a congregation of committed followers of Christ in the inner city of Kansas City.

We would like to express our gratitude and thankfulness to the Restoration Church for the use of their building.  They have not only provided a permanent office for the Seventy, a sound studio for the development of important materials to enhance our work, but they have offered their facility for our gatherings.  God bless these brothers and sister who see the hope of the coming Kingdom and the need to become unified. 

We rejoice in and for the work of the Latter Days and the privilege that we have been given to labor for our Lord and wait upon the children of men that the saving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ might be proclaimed unto the ends of the earth.  We would invite all to come unto Christ and be perfected in Him, preparing ourselves and each other for those things that are coming upon the inhabitants of the earth.  A day of trouble, but a day of rejoicing and fulfillment.  We lift a warning voice, prepare ye, prepare ye for the Bride Groom cometh.

Your Servants in Christ Jesus, The Restoration Seventy
