Dear Elder Meyer,
Greetings to you and Sister Meyer from Tennessee! We hope you are both doing well and are getting well-deserved rest and recuperation.
We wanted to write and thank you and all the brethren at Bethel for al the hard work that went into the preparation for the 2005 Feast of Tabernacles. It was readily evident that much planning and work was performed to make it such a comfortable and peaceful atmosphere for us to worship and fellowship. This kind of cooperation takes a great director, and we are grateful for your diligence in this role, not only at the Feast of Tabernacles but all year round.
Elder Meyer, our hearts are filled with so many things that can’t be adequately expressed on the page of this letter. We are so thankful to Almighty Yahweh for having chosen us to reveal His truth to in these end days, for all the miracles that have brought us in our lives to the Assemblies of Yahweh and the only end-time message being preached from Bethel. We, as a family and as individuals, are determined to strive to live up to this greatest honor, to work hard each day to live by Yahweh’s family values and never make him regretful for having sought us out of this world. The best witness we can give to this world begins with how we conduct ourselves on a daily basis, being a good example of Yahweh’s way of life to the people that live around us. We know that this is not just our “religion,” not just where and how we worship, but it is our way of life, our faith, our salvation, what defines who we are and how Yahweh lives in us. This is a great honor and responsibility and one we have determined not to take lightly.
We were baptized into Yahweh’s name at the Feast of Tabernacles in 1983, but the Feast of Tabernacles 2005 was absolutely the best we have ever observed. If this feast was an indicator of the Kingdom of Yahweh, it will be even more splendid and wonderful than we can imagine! The messages we heard were tremendous, not only at the Feast, but also since we have been home on the streaming system. During this past Sabbath’s sermon, The New Young Israel, Part 2, it was apparent that you are weaving together many Scripture notations we had in our Bibles from previous sermons, expanding on the points and bringing them into more clarity and depth than ever before. Anybody would only have to listen to this sermon alone to be certain, without a doubt, that Yahweh is working through His servant, Elder Jacob O. Meyer, in the Assemblies of Yahweh, and it is from Bethel, and from Bethel only, that He is showing the world His Truth and His plan of salvation that will be so vital in these end days. There are no words to adequately express how humbling and marvelous this is, and we praise Yahweh for this miracle ministry!
It was with much joy, but also great sadness, that we left the Feast of Tabernacles 2005. Bethel is our home too, and we miss and dearly love all of our brethren there. We are family, and we feel a strong bond like no other with our family in the Assemblies of Yahweh. It is a kinship, a sharing of family heritage, that is more binding than even our fleshly families and we cannot wait until we won’t ever have to leave but can live each and every day together in Yahweh’s Kingdom.
We will continue to pray for you each day, asking Yahweh’s blessings on your health and well-being as you lead the Assemblies of Yahweh into the soon-coming Kingdom. May Yahweh bless you and Sister Meyer richly!
With sincerest Philadelphia love and affection,
