The Búzios, Rio de Janeiro Feast site has been canceled.
It is with great regret that a decision has been made to close the Búzios Feast site in Brazil due to both current Covid-19 travel restrictions to Brazil as well as the continued postponement of facilities opening up in Brazil. However we are pleased to announce that we have booked the same facility for next year’s Feast, God willing. The hotel has agreed to the same terms and conditions, and all that have booked this year will have their deposits valid for next year. For more information contact the festival coordinator, Jorge de Campos at firstname.lastname@example.org.
God has opened the door for a second Feast site in Brazil this year!
This site will accommodate Brazilian brethren who live in the southern part of Brazil as well as a number of international visitors.
This new site will be at Búzios Beach Resort, in the state of Rio de Janeiro, which is about 100 miles from the capital city of Rio de Janeiro (approximately a three-hour drive from Rio’s main international airport, Galeão, airport code GIG). The Búzios region is one of the highest quality and most sought-after areas in Brazil, while still far enough from the populous Rio de Janeiro city. The resort itself is only 15 minutes from the Búzios town and its main tourist attractions of the city with local shops and restaurants, such as Rua das Pedras and Orla Bardot.
The resort consists of condominiums or little villas spread out around a set of swimming pools, with various sporting activities available on site, such as tennis courts, beach volleyball, archery, putt-putt, etc. Most major sports activities are included in the price, except for a few activities, such as ten-pin bowling, spa/massages and tours that you may want book. There is a travel agency at the hotel to book and pay for tours, such as city sightseeing, boat tours, diving, etc. (For more details search for ‘Buzios Beach Resort’ on YouTube.)
The messages will be in English with mutual translation into Portuguese.
The Feast in Búzios, Rio de Janeiro would be the first time some of the Brazilian brethren will attend a Sabbath service with other brethren of like mind, not to mention it will be their first Feast ever. In addition to the fun activities planned and the opportunity to visit the famous city of Rio de Janeiro, this is an opportunity for visitors to share of ourselves at church services, at meals and at activities with other Feastgoers, as we attend services and reflect on the messages that we will hear.
The Church is also helping many of the Brazilian brethren financially as their resources are very limited. Please email the coordinator, Jorge de Campos at Jorge_decampos@ucg.org if you would like to donate to aid in making this Feast possible for the Brazilian brethren you’ll be spending this week with.
Services times: The opening service will be Friday evening Oct. 2 at 7 p.m. Services will be held every morning at 10 a.m., except on Thursday, Oct. 8 which will be at 3:30 p.m. Additional Bible studies will be held most evenings before supper. On the Eighth Day (Oct. 10) there will be services in the morning (10 a.m.) and afternoon (2 p.m.).
