Preaching the Gospel and Feeding the Flock

Norbert and Johanna Link have arrived safely in Germany. Their busy schedule will include Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread with the brethren, confirming a site in Germany for the Feast of Tabernacles, visiting and following up on requests from Europe, registering the Church in Germany and a variety of other activities. Elder Michael Link, Ramona, CA, will join them by the end of this week.

Passover Services will be observed Sunday evening, April 13, after sunset; the following evening (Monday, April 14) is the Night To Be Much Observed, which is the beginning of the First Day of Unleavened Bread (Tuesday, April 15). The last Holy Day of Unleavened Bread will be observed on Monday, April 21. (beginning Sunday at sunset, April 20). We invite our readers to explore the rich library of Q&A’s, Booklets and sermons about God’s Holy Days–available at

Following the recent prayer requests in respect of Mr Gladstone Chonde, an Elder in Malawi, we have been informed that he died in the early hours of Saturday morning 5th April, 2014. He suffered from severe pneumonia and was 80 years of age. The burial will be on Tuesday at his home village. Your prayers for Alice, his widow, and the rest of the family would be appreciated.

A new Member Letter for the month of April has been written and mailed. This is a joint letter from the ministry in which we summarize highlights from our recent Church Conference, along with emphasizing the importance of preparing for Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread.

“Do Earthquakes Wake You Up?,” is the title of a new StandingWatch Program presented by Evangelist Norbert Link. Here is a summary:

Increased earthquake activities are one of the signs for Christ’s return. Seismologists tell us that in light of recent events, huge earthquakes are to be expected. They are alarmed about major quakes in Southern California, Chile and Yellowstone; conclude that these earthquakes are connected; and point at an earthquake storm with unparalleled devastation in the near future. Are you awake and prepared?

Why the Days of Unleavened Bread?,” the sermon from last Sabbath by Norbert Link, is now posted. Here is a summary:

Through Christ’s death, we can obtain forgiveness of our past sins. But this does not give us the guarantee nor the strength, not to sin again. Still, we are commanded to overcome and to conquer sin on a continuous basis. How is this possible? What is the meaning of the Days of Unleavened Bread for us today? How are they related to freedom from sin? And how are they to be kept?
