After a long winter in Southeastern Michigan it was time to continue with the tour!
First, we want to thank everyone for keeping Sister Linda in your prayers. Last winter when she went into the hospital was a big scare for us all. Many Medical Tests and examinations led to the discovery that Sister Linda was suffering from the onset of Celiac Disease as of May 17th, 2011. Ever since the family witnessed Felicia’s accident of being struck by a 70mph dodge ram truck resulted in devastating effects on the family. When that truck hit Felicia, it hit the entire household. With the 2 year anniversary coming up (May 17th) since the accident occurred we also would like to thank everyone for their prayers for our Family when we needed them the most. Please continue to keep our family (especially Sister Linda and Felicia) and our humble Ministry in your prayers.
If anyone out there also has Celiac Disease, Sister Linda would greatly appreciate an email or message of encouragement (emailus@followersofYah.com). Celiac Disease is a deadly disease. Because of the seriousness of that the risks of wheat and gluten are with Sister Linda’s situation, the entire household has gone gluten free since late fall. Which means if you ever come to one of our showings, you will have a Gluten Free meal waiting for you. From the damaging effects Gluten has done to Sister Linda’s digestive system and intestines, the last year has been very hard for her. She was having an extremely hard time maintaining her weight (yet alone keeping the weight) and absorbing the nutrients she consumed. After a drastic weight-loss, thankfully, within the last couple months she is gaining the weight back! HalleluYAH! Isn’t this wonderful?!? The next step to recovery for Sister Linda is to regain her strength, continue to gain weight, the ceasing of her frequent abdominal pain and be healthy again! Please keep Yahuwah’s beautiful daughter in your prayers for her full complete 100% health and recovery.
As for Sister Felicia. For those of you who would like an update. She is still recovering with what the Doctors say to be ‘permanent’ health problems that may worsen; multiple daily seizures, daily chronic pain, numerous headaches, short-term memory loss, partial loss of taste and smell, excessive hair loss and ringing in the ear, are just to name a few of the many problems she has to suffer with each day. Also, since Sister Felicia had internal hemorrhaging, along with a severe traumatic brain injury from the accident in May 2011, she is dealing with Perimenapausal symptoms.
These two women of YAH won’t let poor health get in the way with YAHUWAH’s Ministry. Still, today, day by day, everyday and many days, ALL day… they continue to do this work. Linda and Felicia will not let HaShatan get the best of them. Despite all they have gone through… they are never ending Temple Builders! Are You?
Our next stop was in Chesterfield, Michigan. Since it was such a long drive from our cozy winter cottage; the whole crew was unable to make the trip. Brother Danny and Sister Felicia went, leaving behind weak Sister Linda, Daniel (the photographer) and Michael home.
Since we do all the producing for our materials, with the upcoming Summer and showing in Chesterfield we had to stock up for the upcoming season. Which means, burning, labeling and printing. Michael and Daniel did a great job helping.
|Michael burning DVDs.|
I’ll just pop 4 DVDs in at a time and the job will be done in no time!
|Daniel printing DVDs|
Placing the DVD onto the specially designed printer tray.
Wait 2-3 minutes to print and out comes a freshly printed DVD. Wait a few seconds for it to dry and then its ready for the next step.

When we got to the Inn is was a race against the clock. We would have taken more pictures but it took an extra hour or so to get there because of the traffic in downtown Detroit, Michigan. With only 45 minutes to setup we did the best we could
First, we want to thank Brother Jessie who found the place for us to rent, passed out 2,000 fliers with some friends in Detroit and its surrounding cities. This would not have been possible without Brother Jessie’s help.

FYI of WHO we are,
WHAT we do and WHY.
This was the first showing all believers show up. Even though only close to 15 people attended this showing, we were not discouraged! Everyone was able to connect and fellowship. They had a great time! What was expected to be a public free dinner and movie (The Imposter) showing ended up being a blessing. Instead, since everyone already saw The Imposter numerous times we all watched The Temple Builders. We at the F.O.Y. Ministry want to thank everyone who drove out to Chesterfield, Michigan to meet us! It was such a blessing to receive your words of encouragement and support in knowing our work is appreciated by the thousands of believers worldwide. The small kind words everyone has given us over the years encourages us to continue this work.
(we wanted to take pictures of
the others who attended but
didn’t get to because they
left before we remembered.)
|So far two showings in Michigan. You never know. We might just do a third.|
