2016 Feast of Tabernacles Report

Margate, South Africa, Africa

Most importantly, the messages were exceptionally inspiring and much appreciated by all. 

Spending time together was a priority with a special welcome social at the beginning of the Feast, a family game night, and our first year with a special youth day, which included ziplining over beautiful Oribi Gorge. 

Unique experiences that visitors could enjoy include: swimming at the beautiful ocean beaches, deep sea fishing, taking a safari at a game reserve, distinctive shopping, visiting a crocodile farm, cage diving with sharks and many more. 

Overseas visitors enjoyed the South African hospitality and friendliness, which contributed to the overall experience. Most notable among them were the Myers family, with Steve being the principal speaker at the Feast, and family members sharing their considerable talents in the form of special music. Mr. Myers also conducted two interactive Bible studies during the Feast, answering questions from the brethren from Scripture. 

Two exciting occurrences were the ordination of Arthur Fisher as elder, as well as a blessing of little children ceremony. 

We hope next year even more from around the world will come and experience the wonderful foretaste of the world beyond today in South Africa.
