The Temple Fund Project
My name is Elaine Henderson. I am part of a loosely knit group of fellowships which believe and practice the Doctrine of Christ through baptism by immersion by one holding the authority and power from heaven, and receiving, because of this baptism, the Holy Ghost and baptism of Fire as promised by God the Father through His Son, Jesus Christ. I also believe many other things advocated by God through the scriptures such as helping the poor, and being kind to all people.
One of the very strong beliefs which I have is that of advancement in knowledge and the receipt of higher ordinances to better prepare me and all people with my same desire to meet our Lord and Savior when that time comes. I believe that every person should have opportunity for an increase in these things while in this mortal life, and I believe an acceptable temple in the eyes of God to be the great motivator in these things. I do not believe there is currently any place on this earth approved by my Heavenly Father which can afford me all those kinds of blessings which I desire.
I am setting up this fund to establish means by which gifts can be collected from all those who would desire to contribute. As these funds accumulate they will be transferred by GoFundMe to a personal account solely in my charge and keeping, where such funds will generate interest, and the amount of funds will accumulate until it is appropriate to begin the effort described herein.
This temple fund will be used exclusively for the purchase of land and the construction of the temple building on that land. These funds will be used for any and all needs related to that construction. Architectural drawings, permits, building contractors, etc. will all be needed.
In gifting to this fund all must understand there is no personal monetary or real property value to be accrued to yourself, or any other, or position or status to be obtained by your gift. Your gift must be made solely because you believe this is a worthy project, or that you are pleasing your God by doing so.
God bless you in your kindness and obedience to Him.
The mountain picture is beautiful....where is it?
Does anyone know Karen Strong's contact information?
Not being negative, I'd prefer to donate to a trust run by several members, than to a personal account. I'm not saying you are dishonest, but I've seen terrible things in the past that involve large amounts of money to one person. And second, is there a way to donate off this site? 8% of 5 million is $400,000. That to me is too much money not going to our cause. Tha is for listening.
I'm impressed and moved with your willingness to get this started. I still need to consider it more prayerfully, but my initial feelings are that it is 'right'. We are on the verge of some very chaotic and unnerving times. Perhaps, we need to have more in the way or preparations for this project so that when the direction from the Lord comes, we are ready to respond. We can't repeat Nauvoo.
Thanks, Ladies, for your work and willingness to embark on this project.
