Lusaka is one of the three Feast sites in Zambia, located at Verino, about 35 kilometers east of the capital city Lusaka on a church property. Verino is close to the Kenneth Kaunda international airport.
Verino Feast site is in a rural setting with electricity, piped water and waterborne toilets. Water is pumped from two boreholes. These facilities make life easier for the local members who reside there in tents for the rest of the festival. For international visitors there are lodges and hotels close to the facility. Transport is available for pick up and drop off back and forth to the hotel. Services are held in a temporary hall at 10:30 a.m. Meals are served at the site, and temperatures during this time range between 20 to 30 degrees Celsius (70s to high 80s Fahrenheit).
A number of activities are planned for the Festival. Zambia has many tourist attractions. Close to the Feast Site, about 5 kilometers, there is a walking safari called Pazuri. This walking safari has animals and birds that can be viewed for a small fee. There are fishing and swimming pools available for use. There are other attractions available to places like the Victoria Falls, Mfuwe National Park, Kafue National Park, etc.
First Service: 7 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 13.
