August 4, 2020 UPDATE: Due to citizens from the United States and other countries being restricted from entering any European Union nation, the Feast in Estonia is canceled.

For a delightful, peaceful, and safe European experience, consider the 2020 Feast of Tabernacles on the Baltic island of Saaremaa. Estonia is located next to Russia and the other Baltic Republics and is near Scandinavia. This country has been largely transformed since the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union. The crumbling ruins of failed collective farms still emphatically testify to the utter failure of atheistic Communism (Psalms 14:1 Psalms 14:1The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that does good.
American King James Version×).
Estonia is an economically developed modern country by first world standards. Reflecting modern expectations, the venue for the Feast is the highly rated Georg Ots Spa Hotel (www.gospa.ee), located in a millennial setting in the coastal city of Kuressaare on the island of Saaremaa. Brethren from more than seven countries are expected, giving a great opportunity to share cultures and life stories of unique callings and survival.
Attendees stay in the same hotel and eat meals together which offers time to fellowship and bond. Language is no barrier as most people from the Eastern European countries speak a modicum of English. There is usually someone nearby to translate conversations if necessary.
No car is needed. Shops, restaurants, and tourist attractions are within walking distance of the hotel. Group visits to tourist sites are planned. If desired, taxis at reasonable rates are readily available.
Location of Services: Conference room of the Georg Ots Spa Hotel
All services will be in English with translation as needed. Following services on opening night, a meet-and-greet champagne reception will allow everyone to get acquainted.
Please indicate on your application if you are interested in attending the Day of Atonement service on Monday, Sept. 28, in Tallinn, Estonia.
Travel Information: Most international visitors will fly to Tallinn, capital of Estonia. From Tallinn to Saaremaa is a four-hour comfortable coach ride (which includes a one-hour ferry crossing), allowing a view of the Estonian countryside. The bus ticket costs about 16€ each way. Air flights with a limited schedule and limited luggage weight are also available from Tallinn to Kuressaare two times per day on most days for 52€ round trip. The website for the commuter airline is saartelennuliinid.ee.
If your schedule permits, touring the medieval, walled city of Tallinn (known as the City of Dan) is a convenient opportunity. A pre-Feast or post-Feast visit to the historic city of St. Petersburg, Russia, is a train ride away. Prior arrangement for a visa to visit Russia is necessary.
Additional information about charges for excursions, group meals, and applications for the Feast are available by emailing the festival coordinator, Johnnie Lambert, or by writing to him at email@example.com, or by calling 607 796 2669.
