2021 Year in Review

Greetings Brethren and Faithful Supporters in the Name of Yahweh,

We pray this report finds you immersed in Yahweh’s blessings. We thank you from the depths of our hearts for your dedication and help in reaching the masses with the great Truths Yahweh has shown us. Our command and desire is to teach His Word to all who will hear, Mark 16:15.

This has been an exceptional year of progress and growth at Yahweh’s Restoration Ministry. Numerous baptisms before, during, and after each of His Feasts attest to the power of His Word in these trying times. We are seeing new visitors to services each Sabbath, which underscores the urgency for the planned expansion of the meeting hall. Sabbaths have begun to look like Feasts as our facilities fill to capacity most weeks.

Following are brief highlights of this past year’s progress and successes:

• An order to reprint the Restoration Study Bible was placed recently. Our initial supply of 10,000 Bibles of the fourth edition is down to fewer than a third, which will likely be depleted by early summer. With uncertainties in the global supply chain, we needed to get a jump on replenishing our stock while we can. We’ve ordered 10,000 more Bibles. The RSB is printed in Eastern Europe at substantial savings, which we pass along to those who place an order.

• The website yrm.org was given a new look that we believe will make it easier to navigate while increasing its effectiveness. Google recently canceled our advertising account because of policy changes over religious advertising (saving us $2,000 monthly), yet our outreach has not been substantially affected. For example, The Lost Temple Mount video Watch it here has received 1.7 million views on YouTube, which increases daily. The digital media outreach is growing as well.

• Our livestreaming continues growing on various platforms. Over 300 devices tune in live each Sabbath while hundreds more watch later each Sabbath on our website, Youtube, and Facebook.

• Our mobile app to date has seen 31,300 downloads, where users access YRM videos, live services, publications, the Restoration Times magazine, biblical articles, the holy day calendar, new moon network, and much more. If you have not yet done so, we encourage you to download the app and have all of this at your fingertips no matter where you are.

• YRM is a full-service ministry and to that end we have introduced several new programs and activities to aid the local brethren in spiritual growth and strengthening of the bond of fellowship. Because of prior emphasis on outreach, we had not done as much as we could to feed the local Body. These new endeavors include a new youth group to minister to the youth and provide fun activities to engage our youth. Other innovations include: men’s and women’s group outings; senior luncheons; and enrichment of monthly new moon celebrations to include educational and other enjoyable activities.

• We are looking for volunteers to be of service to the community to fulfill the command to do good unto all men, Galatians 6:10. Local YRM volunteers have begun serving at food banks, nursing homes and other venues to aid the disadvantaged.

• For the busy individual who has limited time to watch lengthy studies, we have introduced a new video series with Elder Randy Folliard, called Menorah Minute. This program is available on our Facebook page and YouTube channel and can be watched whenever you have a minute.

A great deal is being done at YRM to take the Truth to the world, but much more remains undone. We pray that you will continue standing with us as we reach out to a world that sorely needs to know Yahweh and His Word. Yahshua is soon returning, and we all must be ready and work hard while we can for His sake. Thank you again for your prayers and help, which make these humble efforts possible.

In Yahshua’s Love,

Yahweh’s Restoration Ministry

Electric Line Relocation Fund

YRM is continually growing and we have reached a point where for any more future growth we need to do some work! As those who come for holy days and Feasts know, we are experiencing an incredible shrinking meeting hall. To expand our worship area the first necessity to tackle is relocating the electric lines that serve the building. As of now, the lines are encroaching on the easement and they must be moved to make room for the building enlargement, or to even to be up to code. We'd rather not have to do this step, but it is necessary and we need your help.

The cost estimate for the relocation is $15,000. This will allow us to start planning the construction that will accommodate many more attendees for  worship and fellowship. Please give what you can as soon as you can. May Yahweh bless you richly!

Below is an email correspondence between YRM and the electric company.

You may have noticed the $12,500 price quote in the above email. That figure does NOT include the cost of hiring a trencher to trench out the path for the new line.

FOT 2021 Registration is now open!

Yahweh’s Restoration Ministry invites you to the 2021 Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) celebration in Holts Summit, Missouri, from the evening of September 22-29. This Feast offers incredible insight into our Father’s plan of salvation for mankind. It represents not only Israel’s 40 years in the wilderness, but prophetically points to the coming Kingdom, when Yahshua the Messiah will govern this earth with His saints, Revelation 20:6.

Don’t delay, dorm rooms are already booked up and the RV spots are nearly gone. There are still plenty of tent sites available.

We look forward to seeing you all at this wonderful feast!

Our Growing Outreach

Almighty Yahweh’s Word is reaching thousands through the outreach of YRM. Data show that our YouTube videos had 83,700 views in the last month. This reflects nearly 13,000 hours of watch time. YouTube is only one of our outreach platforms. We average 300 live views of our Sabbath services each week. Many more come when those messages are downloaded later from the website. We praise Yahweh for the ability to accomplish His work in the time we still have.


More Interest, More Baptisms

Yahweh Word does not return empty. We read in Isaiah 55:11: “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” Lately we have been blessed with numerous baptisms. Two were immersed a week ago and three more this past Sabbath. To impress on the necessity of baptism in the believer’s life, we are expanding our baptism booklet. It will answer the most common questions asked about immersion and why baptism is such an important step in your life.



I don’t understand the account of Yahshua and the woman caught in adultery in John 8:1-11. As the scribes and Pharisees tempted Him with this “gotcha” situation, Yahshua challenged them with the statement, he who is without sin cast the first stone. Who isn’t without sin because all have sinned, Romans 5:12. How can justice be possible in that case?

  1. Yahshua was trying to shock them to make a point.
  2. When He wrote on the ground Yahshua was naming names of those accusers who had committed the same sin of adultery.
  3. The authenticity of the story is questionable and not in the early text.
  4. The account was added to later manuscripts of John

The Restoration Study Bible carries the following footnote on this passage: “The genuineness of this passage is in question. The following maintain that this entire pericope is missing from the early manuscripts: NRSV Harper Collins Study Bible: NIV Study Bible: Aramaic English New Testament: The King James Study Bible. The Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary reads. “It is wanting in the four oldest manuscript-the newly-discovered Codex Sinaiticus (‘Aleph’), the Alexandrian Codex (A). the Codex Vaticanus (B). and the Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus (C) – and in four other valuable Uncial manuscript, although two of these have a blank space, as if something had been left out: it is wanting also in upwards of 50 Cursive manuscript: of ancient versions, it is wanting in the venerable Peshito Syriac and its Philoxenian revision, in one and probably both the Egyptian versions-the Thebaic and Memphitic-the Gothic, probably the Armenian, and two or three copies of the Old Latin: several of the fathers take no notice of it-as Origen, Tertullian, Cyprian, Cyril, Chrysostom: it is wanting in the most ancient tables of the sectional contents of the Gospels, though afterward inserted as an additional section: the variations in the manuscript which insert it exceed in number and extent those in any other part of the New Testament: and of those manuscript which insert it, four Uncials and upwards of fifty Cursives have an asterisk or other critical mark attached to it. as subject to doubt or requiring investigation.” Some scholars speculate that it may well be an authentic report of something Yahshua did that was woven into John’s evangel at some later time. Answer: Each answer has some merit.

Interest Culminates in Immersions
With half the world in shutdown, YRM continues unfazed and going forward full speed with the inspired Word. We put our faith and trust in Almighty Yahweh in all things, knowing He will hold each of us accountable for our commitment to Him, or lack thereof. He continues to bless this work of restoring Truth. Responses to our many avenues of outreach continue unabated.  If all goes as planned, we anticipate two more immersions this Sabbath. That brings the number of recent baptisms to 11, starting with those performed at Tabernacles in October.
Bundles of Joy at Holts Summit
We happily report two births at YRM since our last eNews. Abigail Cecil gave birth to Graeme Alexander on November 14. The healthy baby boy has daddy Lucas still on cloud nine. Danielle and Ian Frochtzweig report their new baby girl, Selah Isabell, was born into the world November 23.  We praise Yahweh for these healthy newborns and for His blessings on these families.
Feast 2021 Projections
The holy day dates we have projected for the 2021 Feasts won’t be confirmed until spring with the sighting of the Abib barley. There is a slight possibility the Feasts will be a month later. The 2021 projections are at: https://yrm.org/2021-feast-dates/
The following are the projected 2021 Feast dates if Abib is spotted early
Passover Memorial: March 27 (evening)
Feast of Unleavened Bread: March 29 – April 4
Feast of Weeks: May 23
Feast of Trumpets: September 8
Day of Atonement: September 17
Feast of Tabernacles: September 22-28
Last Great Day: September 29
While the above dates are predicted to be correct, there is a slight chance that Abib will fall later. In that case, the following dates will be used:
*Later 2021 Dates  (slight possibility for confirmation)
Abib: April 12th
Passover: April 25th (Evening)
FUB: April 27th – May 3rd
Feast of Weeks: June 20th
Trumpets: Oct 8th
Atonement: Oct 17th
Tabernacles: October 22rd – 28th
Last Great Day: Oct 29th
Which Old Testament prophet objected to a king’s disastrous treaty with an enemy, giving one of his sons the longest name in the Bible?
A.     Isaiah
B.     Ezekiel
C.     Daniel
D.     Amos
Faced with the threat of invasion by the combined forces of Israel and Syria, King Ahaz of Judah decided to make a treaty with Assyria. The prophet Isaiah objected and, in an unsuccessful attempt to convince Ahaz to trust Yahweh, gave the symbolic name Maher-shalal-hash-baz (incidentally, this longest biblical name means “the spoil speeds, the prey hastes”) to his own second or third son before the child’s conception. The treaty would be unnecessary, the name indicated, because the threat would soon end; Israel and Syria would be defeated and plundered before the prophet’s child learned to talk. And, indeed, Assyria crushed both of Judah’s northern neighbors in the Syro-Ephraimite War of 734 to732 BCE. Answer: A

Presentation Computer Upgrade
For many years, we have been getting by with a home-grade computer to process our slides and other presentations for the overhead screen on Sabbaths. Thanks to a donation from a brother, who covered half of the purchase of a professional system, we will have the proper equipment to render the right results. The balance of the purchase is about $1500. If you would like to help with the cost, we would be very grateful. Donate Here>>

Clarification of a Previous e-News Report
Regarding our previous e-News on COVID and the Feast of Tabernacles, we want to clarify that there were several cases of COVID and other sicknesses reported from the Feast (most reports came after the Feast). To our knowledge, everyone has recovered. Praise Yahweh for a great Feast of Tabernacles and for restoring the brethren back to health.

Baptisms Abounding

We had six immersions in the past month, including Feast baptisms. Two more immersions are scheduled for tomorrow’s Sabbath service and another on the 21st! We will not slow our efforts to reach out to the world in the time Almighty Yahweh gives us. Praise Him for His blessings as we teach His truths.


Commercial Kitchen Mostly Completed

We were successful in having most of the commercial kitchen usable by Tabernacles. Thanks to the hard work of Ryan Mansager, Chris Fouts, and James Duenow, the kitchen is now mostly finished. We are turning our attention now to discussions about future facility expansion to accommodate the growing numbers who are coming to Holts Summit to observe Yahweh’s Feasts. An essential part of that preparation is to increase our building fund. We will have more in future newsletters.


Bible Orders Continue Apace

Each day brings orders for the RSB 4th edition. Recently we filled bulk orders for 50 and more Bibles. A great way you can evangelize is to order extra copies to share with family and friends.  The Outreach (paperback) edition is affordable for anyone, and contains all the material found in the two other versions.



Who specifically was known by Yahweh before they were born? (Select 2 answers)

  1. Jeremiah, Paul, David
  2. Isaiah, John the Baptist, Levi
  3. A only
  4. B only
  5. None of these


Many in our culture treat abortion with little regard, arguing that the “fetus” is not a person until born. All life is sacred, including the life of the unborn child. The Scriptures show that Yahweh considers the unborn belonging to Him, and He even knows them in the womb. No one has the right to take life through abortion. The corresponding Scriptures for the two correct answers are:

  1. Jeremiah 1:5, Galatians 1:15-16, Psalm 139:13
  2. Isaiah 49:1, Luke 1:15, Levi, Hebrews 7:10


Please pray for us and our nation in these difficult times!

We Are Back in Full Operation

After the week-long office shutdown for the Feast of Tabernacles followed by another Covid-cautious interruption, YRM is now back up to full throttle. We are holding in-person Sabbath services once more and all office operations are up and running. Thankfully, the Feast was free of any known illness and all who had contracted the virus afterward have reported have recovering or are in the final stages of recovery. Nearly all the positive cases reported mild symptoms similar to a weak flu or cold. Even those tagged “high risk” had few problems. Yahweh is good and watches over His people when we put Him first.

More Growth

Happy hearts and pristine weather characterized the Feast of Tabernacles 2020. We were at near capacity for lodging and dining, prompting a consideration of future ways to prepare for more expansion. Four individuals were immersed at the Feast, another two weeks later, and a likely sixth candidate this Sabbath. Praise Yahweh!

Holy Days in 2021
We have projected the Feast days for next year. You can find them at: https://yrm.org/2021-feast-dates/

Be aware that these days must be confirmed by the barley and new moon sightings.



How did the use of holy water become a practice of the Roman church?

A. It derived from the account of the Ethiopian’s baptism by Philip
B. It derived from the heathen ritual of personal cleansing before entering pagan temples
C. Yahshua sanctified the waters of Siloam before healing there

D. It was part of infant baptism rites first used at Alexandria, Egypt

Answer B.
“The use of holy water was introduced into the church by Alexander, a bishop of the church. He taught that the water for baptism must first be blessed and thus consecrated for religious purposes. This grew out of the practice of the heathen’s custom of dipping their hands in water and sprinkling it upon themselves as they entered the pagan temples. As paganistic ideas were introduced to the church, it became a custom to provide holy water for the use of the worshipers. Later holy water became connected with superstition. Marsilius Columna, the Archbishop of Salerno, attributed to holy water “the power to frighten away devils, to remit venial sins, to cure distraction, to elevate the mind and to dispose it to devotion.” This innovation was followed by others that were just as unscriptural.” – History of the Church by Robert H. Brumback
