To those who have registered for this site: British Columbia Health Services has issued a Mass-Gatherings restriction of 50 persons per event. So this year we have no choice but reset Osoyoos Lake as a regional feast site. It is now only available to BC residents. We are very saddened to have to do this. But it is in the effort to submit to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake. (1 Peter 2:13)
We may be setting up a satellite site or two in other BC communities to make more spots available. This would be primarily to ensure all BC residents can attend. Once all BC residents have registered, some non-BC residents would be allowed to do so, but preference would be given to those already with assignments, and in the order they appeared on the current registry.
For us to comply with the spirit of the BC government order we must make every effort to ensure intermixing does not happen outside of the 50 registered to the site.
To our American friends, you should be aware that the border is currently closed to non-essential entry and it is highly unlikely it will reopen by feast time. There is talk it may remain closed until early next year. We are very sorry we will not get to rejoice and fellowship with you this year. We hope you will consider us again next year. Thank you for understanding. God be with you all. And please stay safe.
