Patriarch Leland V. Collins, who has served in that office since 2013, passed away the morning of August 1, 2019 in his home at the age of 70.
Leland has held various priesthood offices since he was ordained as an Elder in November of 1979. He was admired for his love of the gospel and willingness to serve. He was an active supporter of the South Central States (Oklahoma) Reunion, where he attended and provided ministry over the last several decades. During his time as an Apostle he was able to share his love of Jesus Christ with souls in the Philippines.
We ask for your prayers of peace and comfort at this time for his wife and family.
