Hilton Head Location moving to Charlotte... We continue to pray for the thousands of people who were affected by Hurricane Matthew. Lives and homes were lost and much damage occurred in Haiti, other islands, and up and down the East Coast of the USA. There is also flooding and various damage in Hilton Head, which was one of our planned sites for the Feast of Tabernacles this year. Due to the hurricane, the resort we had planned to use is not available.
We are planning on moving the location to Charlotte with Mr. Richard Ames being here the first half and Mr. Gerald Weston will be here the second half. Several additional ministers will also serve at this site. We are still trying to nail down the exact venue, but trust that God will provide the right location.
If you had reservations with the Hilton Head Beach and Tennis Resort, your refund is in progress. However, it could be 5 to 7 days before it is credited to your account. If you made plans offsite or through other means such as VRBO or HOMEAWAY, then of course we encourage you to quickly request cancellation due to these unforeseen circumstances.
Activity ticket refunds will be issued as soon as possible; however, regrettably you may not receive it before the Feast begins. Festival Advisors, your immediate attention is requested to help those without internet access.
We are working on an orderly plan to quickly re-distribute members to various Feast sites where space is available. Accordingly, we are asking all those registered to Hilton Head to RE-REGISTER to one of the following sites:
USA FEAST SITES WITH SPACE AVAILABLE:
Panama City, FL
Osage Beach, MO
Traverse City, MI
Mount Snow, VT
San Diego, CA
Please re-register at one of the above sites, as soon as possible.
Again, we all are very disappointed by this most unfortunate reality, and the hurried situation this puts all of us in to make new plans for the Feast. The Festival Office and Festival Coordinators will do everything we can to make the transition as smooth as possible. Remember, brethren, God is in charge, and He has promised that “all things work for good to those that love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28).
Even through the trial, let’s thank God for His protection and guidance, as we ask Him to provide the way to keep His wonderful Feast of Tabernacles!
