Greetings each and everyone in our Savior's one and only name, Yahshua!!!
Much cloudiness hindered my new moon search which began from 6:19 p.m. this Wednesday evening 18th April 2007 when
the sun set that up until 7:27 p.m. when I left off searching, cloudiness was still intense.
Sighted from Dominica, Nevertheless
However, I'm much happy and pleased that I can report that the new moon was nevertheless sighted from Dominica by
our Deacon Russell Bertrand who called me from his home village of Dublanc in the north of the island (some 26 miles from
the capital city of Roseau where I live) at 6:49:29 p.m. informing me that even while he was speaking to me that
he is seeing the new moon which he told me is very thin.
Sighted from Trinidad Also
Then at 7:14:19 p.m., a text message (from cell phone # 868-750-2397) arrives on my cell phone (# 767-245-8369)
from Elder Locksley Joseph in Trinidad with the words, "Brother I've just seen it." Then, in comes another text message from
Trinidad again from Elder Locksley Joseph at 7:20:30 p.m. this time to report that his wife have as well seen this
evening's new moon.
19/04/07 Is New Moon Day One of 2nd Month Zif
With these three reportings received this evening in the absence of any sighted confirmations for last
evening after the lunar 29th day, Thursday 19th April 2007 is therefore declared the first day of the Bible 2nd
month Zif, being new moon day.

This 2nd moon Zif is an important moon too in light of the Passover for those who weren't
able to observe it in keeping with Numbers 9.
Begin your search for the next new moon from sunset in the next 29 days on 17th May 2007.
Shalom and happy second new moon day in Yahshua,

Holts Summit, MO, U.S.A.
In one of the easiest new moon spotting efforts yet, the crescent was seen tonight at 8:05 by seven brethren at Holts Summit,
MO. The moon confirmed our calendar's projection of 22 degrees high and 3 degrees from the setting sun. It formed
nearly a perfect bowl shape, being so close to the sun.
May Yahweh bless His people as He reveals His calendar in the sky.
