Hi and welcome to all who have found our blog site. This week’s blog will be something a little different. There will not be a normal post this week, as we are going to be given an informal video from our Prophet Matthew Gill that will be posted later this week. In this video presentation the Prophet talks about Zion’s Camp and the role that it will play in the church and also about how the Last Days and events that are happening around us are a fulfilment of Prophesy. We will hopefully have the video posted by the end of the week.

We are encouraging every one that reads this blog to help us in our efforts by talking to us and asking questions, we want to be able to post a video response at least every month to questions that we are asked and also to act as a call all those that are still undecided to come and join with us in building the kingdom of God and also in building Zion’s Camp. The Latter Day Church of Jesus Christ wants your membership and we want you to join with us.

God Bless you all and we hope that you enjoy the video presentation, keep an eye out for it.

Happy New year to Each And Every One of You.

2007 was a wonderful year for the church which was capped of wonderfully with the Winter General Assembly meeting, which was a wonderful success. The Winter General Assembly can be seen our youtube page.

2008 promises to be a good year for the church with the completion of the second Edition of The Book of Jeraneck soon to be with us and the Book of Prophesies and Revelation also soon to be with us. It is a year that as already brought reward to our small but faithful people. Already in 2008 we have been inundated with emails from people all over the world wanting to know more about us and wanting to get hold of Book of Jeraneck, so all in all the start to 2008 look’s good.

This year we have a plan in force to get a few things done. They are, establishing Zion’s Camp, getting the children’s version of the Book of Jeraneck completed, the churches mission to Tibet and India completed and on track and also the new version of the Bible to be finished and ready to use.

So once again we would like you to keep watching and contacting us as this year should be a great one indeed.

I found the following story and I thought that it would be great to include in this weeks blog. I hope that you like it, we all did. God bless you in your week and may his countenance shine upon you.

A Childs Hug

We were the only family with children in the restaurant. I sat Erik in a high chair and noticed everyone was quietly sitting and talking. Suddenly, Erik squealed with glee and said, 'Hi.' He pounded his fat baby hands on the high chair tray. His eyes were crinkled in laughter and his mouth was bared in a toothless grin, as he wriggled and giggled with merriment.
I looked around and saw the source of his merriment. It was a man whose pants were baggy with a zipper at half-mast and his toes poked out of would-be shoes. His shirt was dirty and his hair was uncombed and unwashed. His whiskers were too short to be called a beard and his nose was so varicose it looked like a road map.
We were too far from him to smell, but I was sure he smelled. His hands waved and flapped on loose wrists. 'Hi there, baby; hi there, big boy. I see ya, buster,' the man said to Erik.
My husband and I exchanged looks, 'What do we do?'
Erik continued to laugh and answer, 'Hi.'
Everyone in the restaurant noticed and looked at us and then at the man. The old geezer was creating a nuisance with my beautiful baby. Our meal came and the man began shouting from across the room, 'Do ya patty cake? Do you know peek-a-boo? Hey, look, he knows peek- a-boo.'
Nobody thought the old man was cute. He was obviously drunk.
My husband and I were embarrassed. We ate in silence; all except for Erik, who was running through his repertoire for the admiring skid-row bum, who in turn, reciprocated with his cute comments.
We finally got through the meal and headed for the door. My husband went to pay the check and told me to meet him in the parking lot. The old man sat poised between me and the door. 'Lord, just let me out of here before he speaks to me or Erik,' I prayed. As I drew closer to the man, I turned my back trying to sidestep him and avoid any air he might be breathing. As I did, Erik leaned over my arm, reaching with both arms in a baby's 'pick-me-up' position. Before I could stop him, Erik had propelled himself from my arms to the man.
Suddenly a very old smelly man and a very young baby consummated their love and kinship. Erik in an act of total trust, love, and submission laid his tiny head upon the man's ragged shoulder. The man's eyes closed, and I saw tears hover beneath his lashes. His aged hands full of grime, pain, and hard labor, cradled my baby's bottom and stroked his back. No two beings have ever loved so deeply for so short a time.
I stood awestruck. The old man rocked and cradled Erik in his arms and his eyes opened and set squarely on mine. He said in a firm commanding voice, 'You take care of this baby.'
Somehow I managed, 'I will,' from a throat that contained a tone.
He pried Erik from his chest, lovingly and longingly, as though he were in pain. I received my baby, and the man said, 'God bless you, ma'am, you've given me my Christmas gift.'
I said nothing more than a muttered thanks. With Erik in my arms, I ran for the car. My husband was wondering why I was crying and holding Erik so tightly, and why I was saying, 'My God, my God, forgive me.'
I had just witnessed Christ's love shown through the innocence of a tiny child who saw no sin, who made no judgment; a child who saw a soul, and a mother who saw a suit of clothes. I was a Christian who was blind, holding a child who was not. I felt it was God asking, 'Are you willing to share your son for a moment?' when He shared His for all eternity.
The ragged old man, unwittingly, had reminded me, 'To enter the Kingdom of God , we must become as little children.'
If this has blessed you, please bless others by sending it on. Sometimes, it takes a child to remind us of what is really important. We must always remember who we are, where we came from and, most importantly, how we feel about others. The clothes on your back or the car that you drive or the house that you live in does not define you at all; it is how you treat your fellow man that identifies who you are.
