We have received reports from some of our Feast of Tabernacles sites in Kenya and Ethiopia.
The Ochiengs sent in the following reports:
Pastor Dr Bob,Wonderful Feast of Tabernacles was opened on 23rd September 2018 evening. This was the most enjoyable feast in Kenya. The happiest week of all the weeks. I was very happy with the feast of tabernacle 2018 because God’s church obeyed the commandment and reached at the feast site at the appointed time. Our brethren from all the congregations that were attended and keep the Feast of Tabernacles in Ndhiwa reached the same day. The opening hours found everybody inside the hall. Day one was a wonderful day and brethren enjoyed chicken, juices and snacks. The faces were smiling and the temperature was good. The sermonette was done by Evangelist Evans Ochieng from Kenya and sermon videos by Dr Bob.On Wednesday we had free walking in the afternoon where brethren visited different places to see God’s creations. Some went to Ruma national park where we different kinds of animals, like buffalo, Rhinos, Antelope, Giraffes etc. Ndhiwa feast site is surrounded by so wonderful sites. We have Lake Victoria, the fresh water lake.
FEAST OF TABERNACLES 2018.
Greetings to all the brethren all over the world . It is my pleasure to share with you the report on the Feast Of Tabernacle 2018 In Kenya, Homa-bay County, Ndhiwa sub-county, Sigama villages.
Everyone knows it is God’s plan and a command for true Christians to Keep the Feast Of tabernacles every year. You may wish to have a glance at the verse bellow:
(Then the Lord spoke to Mosses saying, speak to the children of Israel saying, the fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast Of Tabernacles for seven days to the Lord . On the first day there shall be a holly convocation you shall do no customary work on it. For seven days you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord , on the eighth you shall have a holly convocation and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the lord, it is a sacred assembly and you shall do no customary work on it “Leviticus 23:33-36”
As you know and to those who have not known , this Feast site is located just 300 miters from Ruma National Game park where many had the opportunity to just walk up to the game park to view God’s creation and Thim Lich Ohinga national Reserve where anyone can learn more about the Luo tribe and how they lived and erected very tall walls with stones to protect them from their enemies in the ancient days plus the site is located 10 kilometers away from Lake Victoria , A fresh water lake with different species of God’s creation such as Hypos crocodiles and many more.
The brethren came from different tribes, with different languages and from different parts of the country to come and keep the feast of tabernacles.
The congregations that came to this site are, Ndhiwa congregation which was hereby the Host, Three congregations from Kissi, Nyakach, oyugis, mbani, Oriang, kiseke, Kehancha, Migori, otho , Giribe and the total number of brethren that attended the Feast of Tabernacles this year in Ndhiwa was 273, many who are at Primary schools, High schools collages and universities both teachers and students could not attend because of preparation for what they call end year exams which is starting this month.
For the brethren who came, we enjoyed different teachings from different pastors and many brethren had enough time to ask and know various teachings as most of the afternoon services were left for bible study.
This time round we had over 31 brethren who had obtained the age of 60 and above some were old as 85 year and Pastor Evans Organized for them a special day where there were left alone to study and have special meals so that they would then teach the young people how to lived and only follow Christ in this deceived world. “ Proverbs 1:8-9 My Son hear the instruction of you Father and do not forsake the law of you mother for they will be graceful ornament on your head and chains about your neck.”
“ Proverbs 3:1 My son, do not forget my Law but let your heart keep my commandments for length of days and long life and peace they will add to you”
In general, we had a very wonderful Feast Of tabernacles and everyone of us should thank the almighty God for protecting us through out the Feast of Tabernacles and May Gods bless all the brethren who helped us through out the Of tabernacles Financially, Spiritually and Physically.
I am sure that all the brethren all over the world had a very wonderful Feast of Tabernacles and that everyone had the opportunity to continue growing in Faith from the teaching we got during the Feast that is preparing us to be ready for the soon coming Christ and His Kingdom.
Here is another report from another region of Kenya:
REPORT FROM TRANS MARA ON THE FEAST OF TABERNACLE
I greet you in the name of Jesus Christ, we had a blessed Feast of Tabernacles. The brethren were blessed on the teaching in the feast. All the groups of transmara attended chilani local church, I also received a report from njoro and its members that they went on well at mau same to bomet. We are really thankful to the Continuing Church of God and Pastor Ochieng because ever since we joined the church we have experience a great dispensation of the word more so in chilani. For the last ten years we have been experiencing unfavorable weather conditions that has affected us economically and that we could not sustain our selves for three days in the feast if it could not have been you .the thing which I have also like in the brethren of chilani is that they like the feast. I believe that you may ask how other churches of God around us who are feast keeper do this? The answer is that they cannot even sustain themselves for 3 days because of economic hardship. They just only appear in the evening worship for a while and went home but in some places such as bomet and kericho where the land is a bit productive they are able to assemble the food items and are able to sustain themselves in the feast. We also had brethren who had visited us from other churches, there were brethren from kilindani, we had also women from angata barakoi who migrated from a place called kapsinendet . They invited us to their area. If we could get support we could visit them in the course of the month.we want to thank you for your prayer to brethren who were not feeling well. the elder from kabolecho called jona who was with us in the feast with his family, although he is going for check up at eldoret,others are children of pastor William of whom 3 of them had fallen ill, 2 have recovered while one is still sick, – …
I also sent some photos from chilani groups together with the message above.
The Lord bless you
Note: The photos were not attached, so apparently they overlooked attaching them.
