April 2008 Passover & Feast of Unleavened Bread Observed in Dominica!

Greetings to each and everyone of you in the saving/redeeming name of our beloved Savior Yahshua our soon coming King.

How was it with each and everyone of you for this just concluded Bible commanded Passover (20/04/08) and Feast of Unleavened Bread (21-27/04/08).

For us Yahweh's Assembly in Yahshua (YAIY) here in Dominica, Passover was indeed observed solemnly but on a high note and was well attended by 22 of us, 10 brothers and 12 sisters partaking of Yahshua's body and blood symbolised by the unleavened bread and fruit of the vine in keeping with the example laid down for us by our Savior Yahshua Himself.
Passover service started at about 7:00pm Saturday evening 19th April 2008 after sunset of the weekly Sabbath being the lunar 14th evening of the Bible lunar first month Abib.

Then the day immediately following the day of Passover began the 7 days of the Feast of Unleavened Bread on Monday 21st April 2008 which too was a well attended annual Sabbath day of rest in praise and worship to our creator.
We had a full house and some how, we appeared to had been running out of sitting capacity. 
And ofcourse, we had returning visitors and returning visiting brethren as well for the first day of the feast.
Following the morning service was a lunch fellowship.
The day ended in continued praise and worship to our creator Yahweh with rejoicing before His presence.
There were nightly services as well as the wavesheaf evening service on the last night of the feast on Saturday evening 26th after Sabbath sunset followed by the next morning of Sunday with more praise and worship being the last day of the feast, an annual Sabbath as well, as Scripture has commanded.
Messages throughout the feast were indeed inspiring. Special mention must be made of Elder John Felix Thomas' greatly inspiring message which He delivered to us on the weekly Sabbath and sixth day of the feast. We trust Yahweh helps him keep those and more deeper inspiring messages coming.
May Yahweh help us to continue in the truth that He has shown us and in turn to be of enlightenment to those who are ignorant of these things.
Also during the afternoon session of the weekly Sabbath and sixth day of the feast (26/04/08) was the confirmation in a congregational agreement that our departure from Dominica to Trinidad in observance of the Feast of Tabernacles (Booths), if Yahweh permits, will be on Sunday 12th October and will be remaining there for two full weeks and that our return back on island will be on Sunday 26th October 2008. This could have been finally arrived at since the brethren in Trinidad have concluded on where Yahweh shall place His name for this His greatest festival of the year on His Bible calendar.
Whoever may be willing to booth up with us and the brethren in Trinidad during the upcoming Autumn/Fall time of the year in obedience to our creator's Feast of Tabernacles (Booths) command, may wish to contact us here in the Commonwealth of Dominica (ElderJosephFrancis@hotmail.com or StudyTheBible@PraiseYahweh.com) or the brethren in the twin island Republic of Trinidad & Tobago (Locksley.Joseph@yahoo.com) here in the Eastern Caribbean.
Come celebrate Yahweh's Bible commanded Feast of Tabernacles this year 2008 in the Caribbean, with your Caribbean brethren, on the island of Trinidad!

We now look forward to the next annual observance on Yahweh's calendar which is the Sabbath pentecost (50th day) Feast of Weeks/Harvest/First Fruits, come Sunday 15th June 2008 during the Bible third month Sivan.

Let's not forget the next new moon search which is only about some six (6) days from today when the Bible second month Zif will begin early next week. Sunset of the lunar 29th day of this moon Abib will be next Monday sunset 5th May 2008 when our next new moon search should begin.

Thus far for this reporting as I bid each and all Shalom in Yahshua in the spirit of Yahweh's Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread.
