Services were held in English with simultaneous translations into the Russian and Latvian languages. All were welcomed with a champagne and hors-d'oeuvres reception following the opening night service. This special evening helped in building relationships among the brethren.
Messages focused on why we keep the Feast, our relationships with God and others today, and the hope and vision of our future role in His coming Kingdom.
In addition to enjoying the many spa-related activities on site, brethren enjoyed exploring the nearby castle, walks into town and various games with one another. Many of the brethren spent an afternoon enjoying a guided tour of historical sites on the island of Muhu, including Koguva village, which featured peasant architecture from the 18th and 19th centuries.
The crisp fall weather and warm, familial fellowship, along with the rich cultural flavor of the region, made a memorable backdrop for worshiping God at this festival site.
