Another Immersion Blessing
We rejoiced to witness the baptism of Dillard Madden of the Holts Summit Assembly. Dillard has eagerly planned for this key step in his spiritual walk and commitment and we welcomed him into the Body of Messiah on Sabbath, August 17. The technical team has installed the equipment for live video of the actual immersions outside, and some have commented how this is encouraging them to consider this critical step themselves. We will have immersions at the upcoming Feast of Tabernacles as well and pray that many will come and make the commitment to Yahweh as they rejoice with others at His commanded Feast (Lev. 23). Are you or someone you know seeking baptism? Click here!

Magazine in the Mail
The July-August Restoration Times was mailed this week. Included with the magazine are offering slips as reminders that Yahweh commands offerings on each of His holy days. These upcoming holy days are Trumpets, Atonement, and Tabernacles. Yahweh says “none shall appear before me empty [handed]” for His appointed Feasts (Deut. 16:16).

Multi-use Pavilion Under Construction
To give us more flexibility for outdoor activities at Feasts we are constructing a multi-purpose pavilion behind the meeting hall. The site offers a natural amphitheater sound for musicians, plays, and other uses. Spectator seating will be on ground level or elevated on the hill across from the pavilion and we encourage Feast goers to bring their lawn chairs. At other times of the year the structure will provide much-needed storage space for equipment.
 
Critical New Moon on the Horizon
The new moon of Trumpets will be seen either on the evening of Aug. 30 (next Friday) or on the following Sabbath evening, Aug. 31. This crescent will establish which day all four Feasts of the seventh month will fall. We can’t emphasize enough to be sure to go out and look for it and report it to us. It will be very difficult to see August 30 but because it is a Trumpets moon we must make the effort. Our new moon reporting web site is https://yrm.org/new-moon-network/. Or you can call in at 573-896-1000 and we will have an operator standing by. We follow the biblical calendar based on agriculture and the new moon. As with our walk itself, confirming by visual sighting both the green ears of Abib and the new moons each month compels us to be actively involved in our worship and devotion. This pleases Yahweh.

TEST YOUR TUTELAGE
Where in the New Testament do we find a reference to the Day of Atonement?
A. Matthew
B. John
C. Acts
D. Romans
Acts 27:9 reads, “Now when much time was spent, and when sailing was now dangerous, because the fast was now already past, Paul admonished them.” The word “fast” is a reference to Atonement. As we note in the Restoration Study Bible, “This was the Day of Atonement, one of the seven annual observances of Leviticus 23, NIV Study Bible note. Thirty years after Yahshua’s resurrection, a reference to this annual command shows it is still being observed by Paul and those with him.”
Correct: C
In prayer, the only way up is down.
