Joseph Smith Said ...I have tried for a number of years to get the minds of the Saints prepared to receive the things of God; but we frequently see some of them, after suffering all they have for the work of God, will fly to pieces like glass as soon as anything comes that is contrary to their TRADITIONS: (TPJS <20 Jan 1844> 231) 

Alta Vista Education Centers : 1997 - 2019: David Cassani - Founders Story

 Welcome to this website Sisters. I am brother David Cassani, currently retired and working part time, raising my 6 year old daughter, caring for my 90 year old father, and Mr. Mom you might say.  My wife is a convert from Taiwan, and works full time at an at risk youth center.  This is a brief version of my story. 

After receiving family funds from the Smith family, (relatives of Joseph Smith's grandfather Asael Smith,) my former spouse and I  felt to consecrate these to the Lord, and in 1989 came a vision to me of two buildings joined together,,,, a larger building on the east  joined a smaller facility on the west side . That same year I felt directed to move to Utah - leaving a top career position as a college facility manager --and pursue graduate work at BYU. In 1997, we found this east west facility zoned for a school and  from 97-98 I lead the renovation of these two adjacent neighborhood facilities. We  did extensive remodeling - major  foundation work - joining this "east" and "west" space and adding  a second and third level.  This became the Alta Vista Education Center, where our mission was to suppot parents with more options in education and were a powerful witness came of a millennial work. 

For years, the thought that buildings reflect deeper spiritual truths --returned to me again and again.  I have worked on temple facilities, run a community college facility program, worked in public and private schools, was a director at a mental health center, and later ran operations at the Utah State Capital. The patterns revealed themselves to me, in every setting. Learn of this Alta Vista movement and how the Lord led a work that  joins the east with the west in to one whole vision, --a simple vision for every nation in preparing for the  Savior's return and the calamities of these last days. 

When we started this project - we had no idea this work would lead. The work unfolded over the last twenty years. In 1999, I was intrigued when my  wife was awakened  4 times through the night by someone from the spirit world, and spelled the name of a child to adopt in China, After we returned from China with this little girl, I later, received by the spirit  in the year 2000, for three days, tutoring regarding how to clear stored "history" in our bodies, 

I learned how to have complete emotional integrity and feel places where my stressful history - stored in my body could lead to illness, and pain., and how to access the atonement more fully. Details are in the website, in the two month course below. To  summarize, I realized what was unfolded to me, regarding our spiritual and emotional anatomy - could change entirely how mankind looks a modern medicine, health and a divine power  accessible to all mankind.  The spirit had revealed key connections between our health and our family history. From 2010, to 201 9  more details of a foreseen later day work was unfolded to me, reminding me of witnesses given earlier in my life.  I was in awe, to have unfolded to me a work -I learned was  foreseen as separate from the Church put parallel to it. The spirit impressed upon me to use the word parallel.  I believe Joseph Smith had been shown a similar vision and pattern of - and left for us --ways to have the spirit reveal it to us. This happened just before his life was taken, when the temple endowment being communicated to the Saints. 

This website is not a quick read or academic  exercise. It is a path the spirit unfolds to those who are open and willing to look beyond cultural norms and receive what God intends for them and discover their person work on this earth.  I am  asking you to consider this two month course and consider pledging your support to what has been revealed as a  neighborhood and this grass roots international movement that leads to the transition of entire communities, with a vision for temple building in our millennial age. Learn of this vision given for  building Simple Living Centers in interested neighborhoods and what they can become. This work is key to facing challenges in our time, ...not only for developing local healthy food security for communities , but for transition to a new way of life needed for our time. 

In 2010, two organizational names were  revealed  to me. Learn of witnesses that followed, from  Hyrum, Joseph, John the Revelator, and the Savior himself,.....along with multitudes of others from a foreign land. Let the spirit connect keys between a David on one side of the veil and a John on the other side of the veil - beginning this latter day work. Learn how in 2010, when given two new names for organizations to start for our day, I was directed to complete a business plan for these and given keys pieces of a token fiscal play for this work.  Receiving this work over many years,  I have been shown  how a small group of people - working together -can over several years begin to tip the consciousness of  entire  communities to supporting a new sustainable - common sense way of life.  We encourage your prayerful consideration, and call your to explore how the Lord wants you to help led this work. 

Sincerely, your brother and servant in this cause. David A. Cassani

3. A second token donation of thirty cents a month  goes to Homes for Health to improve educational tools, connect with resources worldwide, and fund raise for communities campaigns .
