    Okay, can you please help me out here?
    Please correct me if I’m wrong, because I’m having a hard time figuring this out.

    So the new moon was sighted Saturday evening? Then the new moon day is from Saturday evening to Sunday evening, right?
    So that means Sunday is new moon day, right?
    So then the 6 days of labor happen, then on the 8th day of the month is the sabbath, which means that Monday would be the Sabbath day this month. Is that correct?

    1. Dear Sister Jenny and others who may have this same question,

      Thank you for your question! And we are sorry it took so long to respond to you…I think you had some trouble with your email or something, because every time we tried to respond, it would bounce back a failure. Not really sure why….

      You are correct that the new moon was sighted Saturday evening. Then the new moon day was from Saturday evening to Sunday evening…Sunday was new moon day.

      However, the new moon does not determine the Sabbath. The weekly Sabbath is still always kept on the seventh day of the week. Friday night at sundown to Saturday night at sundown! I hope this answers your questions!

      If you have any other questions, feel free to ask, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

      Thank you for searching out the truth!

      Brother Harris
