Another Ministry Update 12-17-17


When we purchased our new building at the beginning of November, we knew that construction would have to be completed on the addition that the previous ministry had not finished.  However, we did not know the extent of the repairs needed nor that much of the work that the original ministry had completed would need to be redone.  The electricians, plumbers, HVAC, and security crews have completed their portions of this project.  In the new TV studio, the ceiling and walls have been repaired and painted, new bathrooms put in, and a kitchen built.  We are hoping that this coming week will be the final week of construction.  The new flooring in the studio is now about 25% completed, and that will be finished in the next few days.  The studio is huge with about 2,400 square feet of flooring to put down!


There are still doors to hang, trim to put up, and many other odds and ends.  As soon as this is all done, we can turn Mary loose to decorate as we begin setting up the studio.


Currently, all of the items for the studio are stored in the administrative part of our new building.  When all of the studio items have been cleared out, we can get back to normal with the Seminary and other administrative duties for the ministry.  We are hoping to have everything completed and back to normal by the first of the year.

  1. I am happy the Lord led me to your podcasts, and am grateful for your ministry, especially Mary’s journey of healing from child sex abuse throughout her life, as I too had similar experiences. God is my healer and although the abuse was over 48 years ago, I am still healing. Thank You so very much Mary for sharing the bold revelations Jesus has given in processing the affects of your traumatic experiences.

  2. Praise Yah! Looking good guys. May the remainder of this project be completed without one hindrance from the enemy. I ask for a hedge of protection to surround the crews and the Lakes during this critical time, in the matchless name of Yahusha!

  3. thank you for the update! i am excited for all that God is doing here in the KIB ministry, to say i love your podcasts is an under statement, thank you for being leaders for the remnant. We are out here, and greatful for the leadership and training. You both are much loved.

  4. It is amazing how quickly it is all getting done and seemingly quite smoothly too! Y’all are getting to be fixer uppers just like the show! Hee hee
    So glad to have your podcasts back and hearing y’all’s voices, insight, prayers, and love again! We love you at the Hardesty home!

  5. Congratulations! Both of you are amazing and your ministry is a blessing. Merry Christmas and a Happy 2018!

  6. Dr. Mike & Mrs. Mary Lou, I rejoice with you for the progress in the new building. I continue to agree with you that there will be continued provision for the vision. Thank you for all that you continue to do for the Remnant!

    Faithfully Your Sister in Christ,


  7. I’m giddy with excitement for all of you! As many here have professed we are so glad you are back. You were sorely missed, my beloved friends. The Remnant is scattered for now, but you bring us all together with your podcasts and we are deeply indebted to you for that. You, your team of workers and ALL at KIB are in my daily prayers.

    One a very selfish note…sure wish I could be there for some of Mary’s eats in that new kitchen!!!! Maybe one day soon.

  8. I love the flooring you are putting down. It is similar to what we have in our house. Great choice. :o)

    1. DITTO (Great choice),Jeannette! It looks like my flooring as well. It’s been over two years since installation and there’s no sign of wear!

      Blessings and love, dear Michael and Mary. YHVH is ‘greasing the skids’;)

  9. We were at the True Legends Conference in Branson and while buying one of Mary’s books, I got to say hello to her. She is just as beautiful in real life as on You Tube. Thank you both so much for the tons of studying material. I am telling others about this and the remnant is screaming for joy. Your presentation is so meaty in Branson that I have to watch it over and over. I used to observe the holy days when I was in Herbert Armstrong’s church years ago and because of your explanation and nagging questions in my mind d/t bible passages, again am observing the holy days and the sabbath. Would you let me know or do you have a calendar of God’s Holy Days for 2018? Do you have a church in Missouri?

    Love you in Wisconsin

  12. That’s great Dr. Lake and Mary. I listen to episodes of your podcast while doing maintenance at the hotel I work at. Excellent teaching and I really enjoy learning the Torah and Old Testament stuff you bring out and explain in lightbulbs future New. Praying for you and your wife,

    1. Should read: in light of the New (Testament). Need to proofread before I post, haha.

  13. Praise the Lord it is going well. Praying for you and your ministry. That every Kingdom Purpose you are involved with will be prosperous, and that you will be given the strength to finish what you have been called to do.

  14. Hello and Happy Sunday, I’m asking for prayer right now, I’m sensing a spirit of absalom in our ⛪ Church right now, seems to have gotten worse sense the holiday season has kicked in……your prayers would be greatly needed Thank You
