March 31, 2020 - Letter from the First Presidency
Along with everyone in the world in the year 2020, members of the Remnant Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, find ourselves dealing with the coronavirus epidemic. The end of March and the first of April, one begins to wonder how long we will have to self isolate. We wonder how long we will be required to postpone our church services...(Read more)
Praying at your Family Altar
During this time, and always, we should be turning to God, especially as families at our family altars. The Lord has heeded us all in Doctrine & Covenants 154:4b,
To withstand the approaching collapse of moral and family values around you, established family altars must be in place. Even though you may have to pass through many trials in these last days, be strong and be cheerful, for in my gospel and in my word you shall find strength to overcome. Seek me in your quiet places and you shall have peace in your souls.

March 24, 2020 - Letter From the First Presidency
Feedback from Brother Patience’s letter to the saints of March 19th suggests many found it uplifting and helpful in a difficult time. We say difficult time because lives are being endangered, the economy is at risk, and churches are closed as a result of COVID-19. Some of our people are directly affected. Like 9-11, the unfolding of this pandemic came with little or no warning, and it feels like the ultimate nightmare.

Beyond the fact that this virus is causing many people to pray who haven’t prayed for a while, or as fervently, how the present situation works for our good we do not know. However, it does, we believe, inasmuch as we are among those that truly love God. Similarly, the apostle Paul showed great spiritual maturity when he wrote, “I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content” (Philippians 4:11). Even so, as our cabin fever mounts, we can remember how Paul was imprisoned for two years for doing no more than preaching the gospel. As the days drag on within the four walls of our domiciles, this thought may remind us of how much worse it could be...Read the rest here.
