A message from the Prophet Matthew Gill on the disaster in Japan:
"This week we been witnesses to the awesome destructive power of the forces of the nature of the world, we have seen the light of life for many extinguished in the face of that awesome force. The people of Japan have borne the brunt of this destruction to such an extent that it boggles the mind to think of this force and the life it has taken.As God's representative upon the earth and as the leader of The Latter Day Church of Jesus Christ, I send out the heartfelt condolences and prayers of all the members of the church to all the people in Japan at this time and to our few but obedient followers in Japan. We are with you in thought and in prayer, peace be upon you, our thoughts are with you and we will do all we can to help and assist in this time of great sorrow. May the peace of the Lord be with you may it rest upon you and give you a sign of rest and comfort in these hard and troubled times.I know it may seem that the Lord has abandoned you, that he has left you alone, but I bear testimony that he is with you now more than ever. The Latter Day Church of Jesus Christ is committed to using the little resource that we have including our charity to send aid and help to those who may stand in need of it at this great of sorrow.
Once again our prayers and thoughts are with you all. God bless you."
