Another Mormon History Event

These are the gentlemen in charge of the ribbon-cutting. Pres. Van Koman is the middle one.

The evening of May 30 we attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Mormon History Room in the Ray County Historical Society and Museum located in Richmond. Again, the ceremony was a joint occasion between the RLDS (Community of Christ-- as well as one (maybe more??) of their breakoff churches and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Conducting and taking part in the ceremony was the Liberty Stake President, our Mission President Van Koman and the President of the Remnant Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I tell you, it gets so confusing to have so many different sects from the RLDS.

The ceremony was very nice -- and very hot and humid -- it was held outside.


  1. It's worthy of note that the president/prophet of the Remnant Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is a direct descendant of Joseph the Martyr. President Frederick N. Larsen is the gr gr grandson of Joseph Smith, Jr. and is the ONLY direct descendant leading any type of LDS church today. The Remnant Church is literally the remnant of the original church before corrupted doctrines were started. I always wonder why our church doesn't have a direct descendant as our prophet/seer/revelator?? Joseph Jr wrote AND spoke of the importance of lineal descent in the restoration. The RLDS had it for several generations but they lost it.

  2. I am glad you have shared your blog with me. What a great experience you are having. Take care
