Brother James Evans recently found YRM through the Internet and journeyed from Ireland for baptism into Yahshua’s name and to learn more about the faith. Last Sabbath we were blessed to witness his dedication to Yahweh through immersion. When he returns home, he plans on being a light to those in Ireland. Being the son of a preacher, he plans to witness to many of the ministers in Ireland regarding Yahweh’s truth. Pray that Yahweh pours out a special blessing upon our new brother in Messiah and that he finds much success in his future endeavors. In addition to James’ baptism, we were also very blessed to witness the immersion of Sister Jessica Martin. She traveled from Mississippi for this important commitment. Please keep Jessica in prayer as she strives to follow Yahweh.
This week YRM continued making progress on our multipurpose building. Ryan Mansager and Lucas Cecil continued work on the electrical and plumbing for the kitchen and communal bathrooms. A local plumber assisted with the installation of the eight showers and the two instant hot water heaters. In addition, Midwest HVAC continued making progress installing the heating/cooling equipment for the lower level of the building. It is our hope to finish the communal bathrooms and the 5 lower lodge rooms by Passover. This would allow for additional bathrooms and lodging rooms for this upcoming observance. Depending on funding, it is also our goal to finish the upper rooms by the Feast of Tabernacles. Please consider helping with this important project.
Join YRM for Passover and Unleavened Bread
We warmly invite you to this year’s Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread in Holts Summit from the evening of March 31 – April 8. Those who partake of the Passover emblems must be baptized into “Yahshua’s” name by an ordained minister, which, for those interested, we can provide on the Sabbath before the Passover. These observances promise to be a blessing for all in attendance. We have scheduled several worship services, Bible workshops, and activities, including roller skating, bingo, board games, an afternoon on the Katy Trail, open gym time, and several group meals.
The new moon of the 12th month is scheduled to be visible the evening of February 16. Below is additional information.

TEST YOUR TUTELAGE
What is Paul speaking about in 1Corinthians 10:25?
A. Pork and other unclean meats
B. Eating with unwashed hands
C. Food previously sacrificed to idols
D. None of the above
This passage is referring to foods sold in markets that were previously dedicated to idols. This is not speaking about pork and other unclean meats. Since Paul states here and in other passages (e.g. 1Cor. 8:4) that idols are nothing, eating biblically sanctioned meat that was previously dedicated to an idol is not prohibited. The only caveat is if eating the meat might cause another brother to stumble, 1Corinthians 8:9. For example, if the “weak brother” previously worshiped the idol that the meat was dedicated to, perhaps this would cause offense for this new brother who doesn’t yet understand that these idols are man-made and inconsequential.
