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
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.
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
The day ended in continued praise and worship to our creator Yahweh with rejoicing before His presence.
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.
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.
