This new Feast site is located in a densely populated rural area in eastern Zambia, about 30 kilometers south of Chipata, the provincial capital, and 525 kilometers from Lusaka, the capital city of Zambia.
The site has safe water from a deep borehole funded by LifeNets Australia in 2019. There are tentative plans to upgrade this facility to solar power before the Feast of 2020. In addition, we hope to have two ablution blocks and a raised concrete slab to be tented up for services. The Feast is likely to attract around 80 brethren from satellite congregations in Katete, Petauke, Nyimba, Lundazi and Chipata. Guests from abroad will be welcome to stay in the tents with the Zambian brethren or in a guest house at a nearby Christian institution of Madzimoyo.
Those living in the area, including the area chief, are quite friendly. There have been strong indications that over the period of the Feast, many local people may come to learn about the Church. For this reason, pamphlets on key messages, e.g. Baptism, The Sabbath, Fundamental beliefs and Church doctrine, will be produced well in advance to be handed out.
In addition to daily services and Bible study sessions, other activities will include an open sports day and a seniors’ dinner. There will also be a one-day excursion into the Luangwa National Park nearby to see giraffes, baboons, duikers, buffalo, elephants, lions and birds in the wild. This will include a unique Bible study on the Creation and lunch will be pre-packed for everyone.
