Aviv Found in Jordan Valley!
This morning (March 12, 2010) we found Aviv barley in the Jordan Valley in two
just north of the Israeli army checkpoint. We took three samplings from
these fields and they were 90-100% Aviv. I posted
two videos of these fields on
Youtube, taken with my new Flip MinoHD video

quantities near Ein
Thanks to Devorah Gordon and Shoshanah Waterman for participating in this
preliminary Aviv excursion. The
main Aviv Search will still go ahead on
16-17 but what we found so far is already enough to call it for this year. This
means the new biblical
year will begin on March
17, 2010 at sunset.
For us here in the North America region
including the Caribbean Community
(CARICOM), the upcoming no longer expected-to-be but confirmed new moon of Abib
will become visible this
sunset/evening 16th March 2010
, a day/evening earlier than Israel
is a slim chance of it becoming visible there in the Middle East
the same evening (Tuesday sunset/evening 16th March 2010) with us here in the North
America region including the Caribbean where I live (please see www.CrescentMoonWatch.org
for reasons why).
Do you how greatly excited I am for this Abib confirmation and most of all, the preliminary timing in which this
excursion search was done? It is only those who are concerned about and take part and pleasure in things above
(Colossians 3) who will have such great excitement and pleasure in such as these. Those who do not, are invited to join
with us in the same joy, happiness and excitement into inheriting everlasting life in the soon to be established kingdom of
heaven upon this earth for eternity.
Shabbat shalom to all in Yahshua and Yahweh bless,

Still More Maturing Barley Green Ears of Corn/Grain Found in the Jordan Valley on Wednesday
17th March 2010:
In addition to the Aviv barley previously reported on Friday
, we found a planted field of domesticated 6-row Aviv barley in the Jordan Valley
just south of Nakhal Milkha. The field also contained small quantities of 2-row domesticated
Aviv barley intermixed with the 6-row. The other Aviv barley found earlier in the Jordan Valley and northern Negev was spontaneous
