The CDC, Jackson County, and the city of Independence have released updates concerning the mask mandate.  In light of this, the priesthood who were in the meeting in May have agreed that we, the priesthood, would leave the decision whether or not to wear the mask up to each individual priesthood member save for certain instances, such as serving the sacrament.  This has been the pastorate’s stance for the branch as a whole since the start of the pandemic.  Everyone has a right to choose.  We ask that we continue to be mindful of each other and that we pass no judgement upon anyone regardless of their decision. Let us continue to focus on the One, the Lord Jesus Chirst, Zion, and one another.

Brother Bob Bobbitt says that Ken Bobbitt has COVID and is at CenterPoint Hospital. Ken is near death at this moment. His oxygen saturation level is at 70%. At 67%, the body experiences cyanosis and turns blue. He needs your most urgent prayers! – AND - Sister Burdina Bobbitt has Covid and is at Mid-America Rehab in Overland Park, KS. She is 92 years old and going through three hours of rehab each day. Please pray on her behalf. 

Brother Lee Campbell went to the hospital last evening because he couldn't keep his Oxygen level up. He is home now, BUT, both Lee and Karen are very sick fighting Covid. Please pray for them.
