Each year God asks us to leave our homes and everyday lives to go to the Feast of Tabernacles. There He wants us to learn many things about Him and how life will be when all live in harmony, unity, and peace with each other and Him. At this year’s Feast in Daytona, God showed us His power, His favor, and His love in ways we will never forget as demonstrated by these events.
