Remembering the Feast of Tabernacles
We were especially blessed at this year’s Feast of Tabernacles at Camp Allen near Greenville, Missouri. The love and devotion from those in attendance were remarkable. We had attendees from throughout the United States, including: Missouri, New York, Pennsylvania, California, Colorado, Ohio, Washington, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Louisiana, West Virginia, North Carolina, Michigan, Texas, Oklahoma, Illinois, New Jersey, Alabama, Iowa, and Arkansas. In addition to the many states, we also had believers from Canada and the United Kingdom. The new camp was enjoyed by all Feastgoers, especially the children. The gymnasium and the many outdoor activities were a blessing for both the young and young at heart. Perhaps the most memorable were the 11 baptisms during the Feast. Please keep in prayer our newly immersed brothers and sisters: Brent and Donna Ferrell, Larry and Donna Godejohn, James and Suzanne Cyr, Bobby and Anissa Baird, Dorothy Hubbard, Michael Hubbard, and Harold Ballew.
We are also glad to announce that the camp has agreed to have us back next year and for the foreseeable future. For those who were unable to join us this year, we would encourage you to begin planning and saving for next year’s Feast. Due to uncertainty with the Abib barley, there is a small likelihood that the Feasts will fall a month earlier than projected by the Jewish calendar. If this occurs, the Feast of Tabernacles will begin mid-September. If the Feast falls in October, as we suspect, there is also a small chance that the new moon for the seventh month will be seen a day early. For this reason, we have reserved Camp Allen from October 14-24 (this includes the first Sabbath and the 8 days of the Feast). Following are the tentative lodging/camping rates for next year at Camp Allen: Lodging: ages 2 and under: free; ages 3-8: $60 per person; ages 9 and over: $120. For medium to large families, there will also be a not-to-exceed family rate. Camping with full hook-ups or electric: $20 per night for nuclear family. Basic camping (no water or electric): $10 per night for nuclear family. In addition to the lodging, there will also be a special meal package available to all Feast goers.
Please Be Patient
Due to being gone for several days in observance of the Feast of Tabernacles, you may experience delays in our response, including emails, phone messages, literature requests, Bible orders, etc. We do apologize and are working hard to respond as quickly as possible. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have assisted this Ministry through their prayers, support, and financial offerings.
RSB Reorder and New Economical Edition
Due to the popular demand of the Restoration Study Bible we are in the process of reordering 3,000 of the Design edition. We are also planning to print a new economical paperback edition with a considerable discount from the current three. We hope to offer this new paperback edition at $15 per Bible with a 10% discount for those who purchase a case or more. It has never been the goal of YRM to merchandise the Word, but to provide it for free or near cost. It’s our hope that this new economical version will help those on limited incomes and also those interested in purchasing mass copies of the Bible for their assemblies or for general distribution. We hope to have this new edition available by February, 2016.
Discover the Truth Going to Israel
YRM is officially planning a second trip to the Holy Land in the fall of 2016. This trip will be different from the previous in that the main purpose is to record full length programs for Discover the Truth. It’s our goal to record a minimum of 12 programs. Locations for episodes will likely include: Caesarea, Tel Megiddo, Mount Carmel, Tel Dan, Caesarea Philippi, ancient location of Sodom and Gomorrah, Mount of Olives, City of David, Golden Gate, Valley of Hinnom, Capernaum, Chorazim, and the Garden Tomb. We are estimating a total cost of approximatively $15,000. If you would like to help with this important work through a tax-deductible donation, you can send your financial gift to: YRM, c/o Israel Pilgrimage, PO Box 463, Holts Summit, MO 65043. You can also donate online. Please make sure to notate that the funds are for the 2016 Israel Pilgrimage.

TEST YOUR TUTELAGE
What tithe is reserved for the worshiper to attend the Feasts?
While the first tithe is holy to Yahweh and is to be used for His work (Lev. 27:30-33; Malachi 3:8-11) and the third for the ill-fated and needy (Deut. 14:27-29), the second tithe was given to ensure that a person had sufficient funding for the Feasts. Deuteronomy 14:22-26 reads, “Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year. And thou shalt eat before Yahweh thy Elohim, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear Yahweh thy Elohim always. And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able to carry it; or if the place be too far from thee, which Yahweh thy Elohim shall choose to set his name there, when Yahweh thy Elohim hath blessed thee: Then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which Yahweh thy Elohim shall choose: And thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul desireth: and thou shalt eat there before Yahweh thy Elohim, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household.”
May Yahweh bless,
