Sabbath day February 11, 2017 saw the visit of Pastor Robert Kerr from the Douglas Castle congregation in Clarendon.

Pastor Lynval Henry delivered the Sabbath day study, whilst Pastor Robert Kerr delivered the word.

Before that there was a dedication and after the sermon by Pastor Kerr, there was the baptism of brother Robert Hanshaw.

Core scripture of Pastor Kerr’s sermon was taken from the story of Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch, which is found in Acts 8:26 – 39.

Acts 8:26 (YLT)

And a messenger of Yahweh spake unto Philip, saying, ‘Arise, and go on toward the south, on the way that is going down from Jerusalem to Gaza,’ –this is desert.

And having arisen, he went on, and lo, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch, a man of rank, of Candace the queen of the Ethiopians, who was over all her treasure, who had come to worship to Jerusalem;

he was also returning, and is sitting on his chariot, and he was reading the prophet Isaiah.

And the Spirit said to Philip, ‘Go near, and be joined to this chariot;’

and Philip having run near, heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, ‘Dost thou then know what thou dost read?’

and he said, ‘Why, how am I able, if some one may not guide me?’ he called Philip also, having come up, to sit with him.

And the contents of the Writing that he was reading was this: ‘As a sheep unto slaughter he was led, and as a lamb before his shearer dumb, so he doth not open his mouth;

in his humiliation his judgment was taken away, and his generation–who shall declare? because taken from the earth is his life.’

And the eunuch answering Philip said, ‘I pray thee, about whom doth the prophet say this? about himself, or about some other one?’

and Philip having opened his mouth, and having begun from this Writing, proclaimed good news to him–Yahshua.

And as they were going on the way, they came upon a certain water, and the eunuch said, ‘Lo, water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?’

And Philip said, ‘If thou dost believe out of all the heart, it is lawful;’ and he answering said, ‘I believe Yahshua HaMashiach to be the Son of Yahweh;’

and he commanded the chariot to stand still, and they both went down to the water, both Philip and the eunuch, and he baptized him;

and when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of Yahweh caught away Philip, and the eunuch saw him no more, for he was going on his way rejoicing;

Here are a few photos from the day:

Sabbath day February 11, 2017 was the day of the baptism of Robert Hanshaw from Falmouth here in Trelawny.

The baptism took place after Sabbath service and was performed by Pastor Robert Kerr of Douglas Castle congregation in Clarendon. He was assisted by Pastor Hopeton Gordon of Clark’s Town First Congregation of Yahweh International.

Incidentally, Pastor Kerr himself was baptized at the same place eight months ago by Overseer Lynval Henry. The video of Pastor Kerr’s baptism is also shown below.

Brother Robert has already started his street ministry, walking the streets of Falmouth enlightening others about the goodness of Yahweh, and the impact Yahweh has made in his life. He anxiously hastened his baptism as he said he can’t wait to officially be a part of the family at the Congregation of Yahweh.

We welcome brother Robert Hanshaw to the family of First Congregation of Yahweh International. We pray he will fulfil the purpose for which he was called.

Pastor Lynval Henry Pentecost 2016

Here is the video of Pastor Lynval Henry’s sermon on Pentecost 2016, entitled: “The Baptism of the Holy Spirit.”

This is my first attempt at recording a full sermon and it turned out to be quite a struggle. The Nikon D3100 kept shutting off after every few minutes. It would have been great if it could have been restarted immediately, but I sometimes had to wait minutes before it could restart. Sadly, this resulted in critical parts of the sermon being omitted.

In the end, I had to discard the Nikon DSLR and use my cellphone. That’s why things got a bit shaky in the end, but I guess it is the message that counts.

Hope you enjoy the sermon. It was delivered in the Content branch.

On Sabbath, June 11, Seven members of the Douglas Castle congregation in Clarendon were baptized in the First Congregation of Yahweh International, Clarks Town. Although not a part of our congregation, Yahweh has linked the Douglas Castle congregation to ours in an interesting way.

The Douglas Castle Story

A young member of our congregation was in Clarendon on a visit with a friend who took her to a Christian church. Feeling uncomfortable, she left the church and faintly heard the name Yahweh coming from the distance. She followed the sound and came upon the meeting of a small assembly of believers and worshiped with them. Afterwards, she met the Pastor (Robert Kerr), who had heard Pastor Lynval Henry’s sermons on the radio.

The link was made and Pastor Kerr visited our congregation and got baptized in the name of Yahshua a few weeks ago. Pastor Henry, in turn, visited the Douglas Castle group.

Pastor Kerr returned yesterday with the rest of his flock and 7 of them (1 male and 6 females) were baptized in the name of Yahshua HaMashiach. Yahweh truly has a way of bringing his people together!

Here are the videos from the event.
