A United Church of God Feast of Tabernacles site
The Feast of Tabernacles and the Eighth Day 2023 will once again be held at Hotel De Susana and Resort at Purok 2, Patag Bagontaas, Valencia City, Bukidnon, a beautiful highland paradise in the heart of Mindanao. Bukidnon is known for its rolling grassland plateau, deep canyons and valleys, as well as its breathtaking mountain landscape, which is still covered with forests. It is also the region's "Food Basket" and the primary source of agricultural products and raw materials for processing centers in the province and Northern Mindanao.
The Feast of Tabernacles will start on Saturday, September 30, and The Eighth Day on Saturday, October 7. It is best to plan to arrive at the feast site early on Friday, September 29, to give enough time for registration and preparation for the Opening Night, orientation and welcome dinner at 7:00 that evening. Please arrange your travel plans accordingly and let us know your schedules so we can coordinate your arrivals.
For those coming from outside Mindanao, you can reach Hotel De Susana and Resort by plane through Laguindingan Airport via Cagayan de Oro City (93.21 miles) or Francisco Bangoy International Airport, Davao City (109.36 miles). From there, you can find your way to the bus station and ride a bus bound for Bukidnon, then drop off at Valencia City Bus Terminal. Finally, ride a motorcycle taxi to the resort. For our brethren in Mindanao, there are various routes to the site from the south, east and west.
Please note that outside food is not allowed in the resort. All rooms include a complimentary breakfast for two, and those who avail themselves of an extra bed will also receive breakfast. Breakfast and dinner will be available on the site for $2.60 per person respectively, while lunch after services will be served in the Grand Hall for $7 per person. Members will also find dinner options at several restaurants around the area.
