2015 Feast of Tabernacles Report

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

Fifty-three members met at beautiful Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Derrick and Denise Strauss from Dallas were able to attend the entire Feast there, and contributed to the messages. Regional pastor Aaron Dean and wife Michelle were there for the last four days, filling in the assignments. Mr. Dean baptized two new members, blessed the children and anointed the sick. Local pastor Mike Mukarati had health and family issue that kept him from attending the Feast, leaving a number of assignments to be filled by others.

All but four of the baptized members were able to come to the Feast. They enjoyed a family day of games and swimming in the camp’s pool accompanied by the monkey who roamed freely on the grounds. Deacon Mabasa Chichaya was able to set up the site we have used for many years and took care of local members who are scattered across Zimbabwe. The brethren enjoyed a tea at Victoria Lodge and a tour of Victoria Falls courtesy of the Strausses. It was a very fulfilling Feast, both spiritually and physically.
