What are you looking for in a festival site? If it is a Feast with a focus on fellowship and spiritual instruction, you may want to attend the Davao festival site!
Davao City is considered the “fruit basket of the country,” located on agriculturally fertile Mindanao Island. The Feast falls near the peak of the fruiting season, providing the opportunity to enjoy a variety of tropical fruits. The natural beauty of Mindanao facilitates stepping away from the materialistic world around us to enjoy a foretaste of God’s coming Kingdom.
Feast services and Bible studies are conducted in English (with translations into Cebuano). Visitors enjoy the weekly Sabbath’s Q&A Bible study where questions are answered straight from the Bible. Other Bible-based sessions focus on various groups such as teens, young adults, married couples and parents. One highlight of the activities is the annual variety show. Other activities are scheduled to include all age groups from children to seniors.
The venue will again be at the Girl Scouts of the Philippines (GSP) Regional Training Camp in Daliao, Toril, Davao City. Most taxi drivers are familiar with its location. It is about 20 kilometers (12.5 miles) from the Davao International Airport (DVO). Accommodations at the GSP may not be as comfortable as at other sites, but the brethren’s hearts and hospitality more than make up for the difference. All rooms at the camp have screens, and some are air-conditioned. Meals at the camp are served in the air-conditioned dining hall. It is hard to beat three buffet meals per day for about $10 per person per day.
Private rooms in camp are somewhat limited. Those desiring nicer accommodations and meals will find a variety of hotels located between 1.5 and 15 kilometers (about 1 to 10 miles) from the festival site. When eating out, tips are appreciated but not obligatory. For your information, the present foreign exchange rate is approximately U.S. $1 = 49 PhP.
