2019 Feast of Tabernacles

Kalutara, Sri Lanka

Inspiring messages, close family camaraderie and delicious shared meals at the hotel restaurant buffet were hallmarks of the Feast. Staying together in the same resort and having daily meals together yielded a millennial atmosphere as Sri Lankan and overseas brethren grew to love one another and soon became like family. The messages during the Feast were both encouraging and thought-provoking.

Sri Lankans and visitors alike also enjoyed many Feast activities: a fun-filled Family Day with a wide variety of team games and challenges, a variety show displaying participant’s talents and humor, an exciting game of cricket played in the pouring rain and some great splashes in the pool with friends.

A Feast tradition continued on “saree and sarong day.” The ladies and men dressed in traditional Sri Lankan clothing with a variety of beautiful colors. Visiting members from other countries were encouraged to participate and the local ladies and gents supplied extra sarees and sarongs.

The 2019 Feast in Sri Lanka was uplifting and meaningful for all, and encouraged God’s people to endure until the end—pressing toward the goal of His Kingdom in every aspect of their lives this coming year.

For those interested in enjoying a once-in-a-lifetime experience in a part of the world that is seldom visited, you are encouraged to come to the “Pearl of the Indian Ocean” and rejoice with your brothers and sisters at God’s Feast in 2020.
