Your brethren in Sri Lanka warmly invite you to attend the Feast of Tabernacles with them at the Amaya Beach in Passikudah, Sri Lanka. The beautiful beach resort sits on a vast expanse of golden sand dotted with palm trees on the beautiful Passikudah Bay a long stretch of coastline renowned for its calm and shallow waters ideal for swimming and water sports.

All brethren will be staying at the Amaya Beach. The hotel will also be the site for services each day in the Vandeloos Bay Ballroom. Services will be in English. Family day is a traditional favorite in which you’ll experience a special afternoon full of surprises and fun, followed by another afternoon of cricket, which the whole family can enjoy. The variety show as well as a family dance are sure to be a highlight as the Sri Lankan brethren are very talented and musical.

Brethren have the unique and enjoyable opportunity to dine together at the Reef Café which provides 3 buffet meal each day, featuring local Sri Lankan dishes as well as excellent international cuisine.

A visit to Sri Lanka will be a life-changing experience. If you want to travel internationally and you earnestly desire to serve your brothers and sisters who live overseas, the Feast in Sri Lanka would be an exceptional opportunity for you. A visit to this tropical island where food is delicious and the brethren are gracious, friendly and enthusiastically desirous to see the coming of God’s Kingdom, is a Feast you’ll not soon forget!
