Letter to the Governor

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ of the Pacific Southwest District,


I pray that you and your families are safe, healthy, and living daily in the grip of His grace.


I always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. I remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 1:2-3)

The purpose of this email is to share with you a joint letter that President Mike Lange (CNH District) and I sent to California Governor Gavin Newsom requesting that he reclassify the church as essential and grant permission for churches to reopen as soon possible. President Lange and I next will reach out to our Nevada pastors to determine what we should communicate to Nevada’s Governor, Stephen F. Sisolak. Finally, I will send a letter to Arizona Governor, Doug Ducey to express our thanks for his support of the church.


I thank you for your encouragement and prayers during these days. Our God is doing wonders that are amazing to behold!
