Update on Restoration Times
The November/December edition of the Restoration Times is scheduled for mailing next Tuesday. In this edition, we focus of the theme of Holidays or Holydays? We review the true story of Christmas, the questionable roots of Hanukkah, and the scriptural days of worship commanded by our Father Yahweh. In addition, we consider our paradigm along with an important lesson from Ruth. The printed version of this publication is reserved as a gift to those who donate $25 or more to the Ministry. It is also available free online for all to read >>
Milestone on Facebook
Last week we hit over 20,000 likes of followers on Facebook. This continued growth allows us to reach thousands within a few hours. As an example, a recent post garnered over 16,000 views within only a few hours. Reaching an audience of this size so quickly is only possible through such outlets. It was from this invaluable resource that we first communicated the urgent need for helping the Filipinos in their distress.
Final Airing on WGN
This Sunday @ 5:30 am, Central, will mark our final airing of Discover the Truth on WGN. Don’t miss Christmas – The Untold Story by host Randy Folliard. Starting November 30, you can watch us on Family Entertainment TV (FETV) on Dish Network and AT&T U-verse, Saturdays, 10:00 am, and World Harvest TV on DirecTV, Saturdays, 10:30 am, Central.
Approval on Major Network
We received approval this week from the Word Network for airing Discover the Truth. We are in the process of negotiating with the station for an available airing time (to be announced). The Word Network is available in approximately 200 countries. It reaches viewers in the US, Canada, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Latin America. The network recently added two new satellites which will expand their reach in the Middle East and North Africa. The first is EB2 (Arabsat). The second is Optus D2, reaching over 4 million viewers in Australia and New Zealand. The Word Network reaches nearly 86 million homes in the U.S through DirecTV, Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Bright House Networks, Cox, Cablevision, Charter Communications, and approximately 9 million homes on Sky TV in the U.K. The Word Network is available on IPTV through AT&T U-Verse, Verizon FIOS and Sky Angel. The network also streams live on their website, and is available to air travelers on selected aircraft carriers.
Discover the Truth Also Coming to Roku
YRM recently met with our media coordinator and Roku developer to discuss our plans for a dedicated DTT Roku channel. It will contain all past DTT programs. For those unfamiliar with this technology, Roku is a digital media player that provides access to Internet streaming. To access Roku, you need a Roku box, which connects to most TVs with an HDMI connection. Roku boxes are available at most major retailers, including Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Sam’s, and online merchants like Amazon. The cost for the box ranges from $50 to $100. Our channel will be subscription-free and available to all! It should be ready by the end of this year. Our media department is currently working with the developer to build our channel. Stay tuned for future announcements.
Feast Pictures and More
Pictures of this year’s Feast of Tabernacles are now available online See pictures >>
In anticipation of next year’s Feasts, we encourage all to begin saving their second tithe so that you can join us at Camp Galilee in El Dorado Springs, MO, located in southwest Missouri, 1.5 hours north of Springfield and Joplin and 2 hours south of the Kansas City airport. This beautiful camp offers all the needed facilities, including a large tabernacle, dining hall with a large commercial kitchen, separate lodge for children’s classes with a bathroom and small kitchen. In addition to the lodging, the camp has a private lake for fishing, human foosball, a large open field that can be used for softball, soccer, kickball, and other games. It also offers archery, sand volleyball, full-court basketball and a host of other activities. The Feast is a taste of Yahweh’s Kingdom and the best commanded vacation you will ever experience. We pray that you will begin preparing now with your second tithe to ensure the means to attend, Deuteronomy 14:22-27.

Help Our Video Crew Get to Israel!
YRM is planning a 10-day trip to Israel this coming spring for the Discover the Truth film crew. The main purpose is to do on-site filming for the Discover the Truth television program and collect photos and footage for our publications and DTT program. To add weight and substance to our Hebraic Roots teachings we need to film in the Hebraic land where the Old and New Testaments were written. Learning firsthand about the country where prophets roamed and Yahshua ministered will add scope and depth to our presentations. The estimated cost is $10,000. For those who would like to support this venture, donations can be mailed to:

Holts Summit, MO 65043
You can also donate online (please indicate that your donation is for the Israel trip).

TEST YOUR TUTELAGE
How many tithes does the Bible mention?
We find three separate tithes in Scripture. The first tithe is holy to Yahweh and is to be used exclusively for Yahweh’s work or service (Lev. 27:30-34). Paul alluded to this tithe in 1Corinthians9:11.The second tithe is to ensure adequate funding for the worshiper to attend His Feasts (Deut.14:22-27). The third tithe was for the stranger, fatherless, and needy. This last tithe was required every three years and was Israel’s form of social welfare (Deut. 14:28-29). Correct: C
