Although the IOG’s Prayer Health & Spiritual Counseling Committee is not taking requests for in-person visits during these unprecedented times, they are praying daily for all and adding individual requests as they are received. You may still email prayer requests 24/7 to the Committee at [email protected].

You are also welcome to join the congregational prayer in unison, 3x’s daily at 9 am, 3 pm, and 9 pm. Lastly, the Committee has an open prayer line each Sunday at 2:45 pm, when you can call to request live prayer. Dial 1-563-999-2090 access code 758514# to submit your request. The Elders will begin praying promptly at 3 pm. Please remember to mute your phone during the prayer.

It is unbelievable that Pentecost 2020 is rapidly approaching on Saturday, at sundown May 30th. The Israel of God will again continue to follow the law’s of land and maintain their social distancing mandates.

We will also continue to stream out the Sabbath day lesson as in pass weeks. As you should now know Pastor Buie will be doing live streaming with a small support group to make this happen weekly.

All of the IOG facilities will remain closed until further notice. I imagine the open announcement will be very good news whenever it happens. Until then Brother Buie asks that all of us to watch and pray.

We know that families managed the last High Day’s and made a bad environment work in praising the God of Israel. It’s for certain you will do the same thing dreaded year for the Feast of Pentecost. Enjoy the Lord of the Sabbath. Jesus.

God has been merciful during this current pandemic. I am sure everyone knows that this new highly infectiousness COVID-19 will be with be mankind here on out. Actually, this strain of disease origins could be ancient for all we know. The Lord could be revealing it for a time as this.

If man would be practicing the science of clean dietary laws, maybe this current environment wouldn’t be as bad as we’re experiencing. But we are and by our prayers we will remain in good courage to sensibly navigate through it to its end. May God continue to bless all of you Christian Israelites.

Be safe until we meet at the appointed time.
