The sole feast this year in Kenya will be conducted in Kendu Bay, close to the shores of Lake Victoria. This site will be principally for the Kenyan and Ugandan brethren rather than being open to transfers. Some 400-500 brethren are expected to gather at this site.
The Feast will be conducted in a marque and brethren will be accommodated in tents on the Church’s property. Meals will be catered throughout the feast. Kendu Bay is less than 60 miles south of the equator, but the elevation of some 3500 feet moderates the temperatures. Rain is not uncommon during the feast, especially during the afternoon of the Last Great Day.
Brethren will travel to the Feast site using the local transport available. Often times, congregations will hire a small bus or buses so that they can safely travel together. The congregations also provide staple food such as maize, millet, bananas and chickens for the Feast site.
This part of western Kenya is somewhat removed from the Game Parks that tourists frequent on safaris. A small game park–Ruma–is several hours’ drive from Kendu Bay. It boasts several rare forms of antelope and probably the best viewing available of the Rothschild Giraffe. However, being on the edge of the fourth largest body of freshwater in the world, this area does provide interesting opportunities for observing bird life.
Fellowship, learning, food and beautiful sunsets are part of the fare keeping the Feast in Kendu Bay. Services are conducted in the local language Dholuo, and translated into English as needed.
Those who are not looking for all the creature comforts usually associated with a Feast site and who have the ability to relate to brethren from the developing world and have an interest in this site should contact Peter Nathan, site coordinator before making any plans to register.
For more information about this site, please contact the Festival Coordinator.
This site is NOT open for transfers.
