It has been a wonderful week all round for the church what with people talking to us and expressing there desire to be untied with us and their desire to help us in the work. We have some exciting news for everybody. It has been decided by the Prophet Matthew Gill that we shall make our sacrament meetings available on the internet. The Prophet has proposed that all Sacrament meetings shall be recorded and posted on our youtube page. It has also been decided that if people want to join us live then they can do so by logging on at a certain time on Sunday morning and joining us for the meeting live in real time. Also our General Assembly meeting which is set for the 16th of December will also be done in the same way, we will make an announcement before hand letting everybody know when to log on and you can join us live for our General Assembly meetingon the 16th od December, however it will also be available on our youtube site as will all our Sunday sacrament meetings. With the use of modern technology we believe that it is only fair that those who are not able to get to the meeting house can join in and feel the love of the Saviour and hear the Gospel.

Once again we would like to dedicate a little bit of this blog space to the cause of Zion’s Camp and what we believe that we should be doing to serve Gods purposes here on earth. We the members of the Latter Day Church of Jesus Christ as you are aware have been commanded to build a safe refuge for the storms that are coming at this place of refuge we will be looking to create a new social order of peace built upon the laws of God. In this life no one has the right to be cold or nasty to his neighbour. Malice, put-downs and payback will be foreign to our way of life. The love that we shall try to institute will restrain us form striving to take advantage of one another, form turning our backs on one another when the times get hard.

All of you know that this world and its way of doing things encourage everyone to be responsible for his own life and the lives of their family. They make you think that once you have food, clothing and a place to live then it is okay to try and be nice to your neighbour, however they still put limits on how nice you can be or how much you can talk and what is acceptable, now matter how many laws they pass to try and make you unite as a community there are still barriers, for instance one person has his group of friends, another a different set, someone else another set, most family cant even sit down together to eat a meal without fighting and trying to get one over on someone else.

We want to create a new society were this is not the case. We have been given the building blocks for this new society were the chains of fear and guilt and hatred that bind us can be broken. The new order we are talking about is not ideal, its real. Ideal societies are the playground of the dreamer and the intellectuals of this world, not one person has ever built an ideal world or society that works. In fact there is not a location on this earth were you can observe an ideal society, all those society’s that profess to be ideal are all based on the laws of men and those laws can only limit evil not create virtue and godliness. Zion’s camp will not be perfect, but God has given us the plans and building blocks to get it done and make it real and living. In Zion’s Camp we will be able to shake of the natural man who is an enemy to God and has been since the fall of Adam and we will be able to forgive each other and press on toward the goal and that goal is that one day we will be able to stand at the feet of our saviour.

All the Prophets of the ancient times have spoken of a new order a new social order in which all things are restored. Joseph Smith established many places in America many places were this new order could take hold, but the people failed him they weren’t ready to live up to the laws of Kirkland, Kirtland was the first place were God established his vision for his people that vision that Joseph was given to fulfil was to establish a living place of God were his laws were real and meant something in peoples lives. But it is possible for Gods people to build a place were man can dwell at one with God, were the laws of the creator can be paramount in our hearts, were children need to be exposed to hate and fear where families can live together in peace and harmony. Many people reading this will not be able to see the difference between Zion’s Camp and any other idea that describes utopian ideals some will feel that its is to good to be true. But there are those of you who are ready to do the will of the Lord and you will know weather this is actually gods plan and that Gods wants his children to live in a place of love and peace you will know weather or not this is just something that we have made up or weather it truly is Gods will. Remember the city of Enoch that was translated remember that in that place there was no poor among them they truly were the sons and daughters of God. And now the Lord has asked that we do it again, that we establish this place for a refuge for all those that are seeking this new life. Read Luke 9:23 and take in your hearts what it says... If you desire to live a self sacrificing life of love, to experience the deep soul satisfaction doing what God wants and serving his law and doing what we were created for then Zion’s camp is for you.

If you want to see such a place built then please make a donation, pledge your money to help buy the land and build the buildings and put your name forward to come and join with us in Zion’s Camp and make it a reality for the benefit of all those that are seeking a better way of life, free from persecution, war, hunger, poverty and hatred. As the statue of liberty says "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore, Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
