REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON RELIEF AND CHARITY To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Section 5.090 allows the Committee on Relief and Charity to provide for the care and relief of distressed worthy cases of Masonic charity not otherwise provided for under the policies of the Masonic Home. In early December of 2014, a younger member with a very serious illness needed assistance and the Masonic Home was unable to help due to age and length of membership, so the Committee authorized the payment of $1000.00 for his travel expenses to the Mayo Clinic. Respectfully submitted, David W. Haywood, Chair C. Brent Stewart Richard L. Smith Ronald D. Jones

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE RECOGNITION OF FOREIGN GRAND LODGES To the Grand Lodge A.F & A.M. of Missouri Brethren: In 2015, your Committee received several requests for recognition, as well as communications from Grand Lodges, other organizations and Brethren. In considering the requests for recognition, we have again relied upon information provided by the Commission On Information for Recognition of the Conference of Grand Masters of Mason in North America, (hereafter, the Commission) for a determination of the regularity and/or whether the Grand Lodge has met standards for recognition. Those standards are summarized as follows: 1. Legitimacy of origin 2. Exclusive territorial jurisdiction, except by mutual consent, and/or treaty 3. Adherence to the Ancient Landmarks – specifically, a Belief in God, the Volume of the Sacred Law as an indispensable part of the furniture of a Lodge and the prohibition of the discussion of politics and religion.
