husbands and fathers, and how to overcome the challenges we have at work and
at home. Always a great time of fellowship and developing relationships.
Many men consider these meetings to be the highlight of the feast.
Daughters of the Light - Similar to the men's meetings, ladies will come together and discuss anything from home schooling
ideas to Sabbath preparations to how to be better wives & mothers. This
is a luncheon so bring enough food for you and one extra person.
Daily Hebrew lessons (9:15am) are offered in the conference facility
that will teach everyone
how to read the written Hebrew language. Self-graded quizzes will be given and

Children activities - Story time for children, arts & crafts, Youth & family night
with a special event planned, Midnight Midrash for teens (10pm -midnight),

Note: If any of the
following afternoon activities are not of interest to you, we'll be offering open-forum bible study, scripture Q & A, and
group-oriented counseling at the same time as these activities. We missed
this last year due to the heat in the tabernacle so we'll be moving the
activity to the main pavilion.
Scripture Treasure Hunt for children - The
scriptures themselves will provide the clues, and a brief teaching will be
provided at each stop. Bring your bibles, it's sure to be an adventure!
Singles meeting class
will be offered for unmarried teens and adults. For some, this is the only
time of year that unmarried believers in our faith can get to know
each other. We'll be sharing a teaching on the biblical method of finding a
spouse, and doing a group activity to help break the ice and learn what each
of us are expecting in a marriage partner.
Making Class. Sand
it down, drill the mouthpiece and get ready to blow your own shofar
(horn/trumpet) in praises to the King! We'll also have instructors to help you
learn how to sound it. Available for a donation or
free if you can't afford it (limit one free shofar per family).
shofars will be available this year and will be handed to you when you

We'll take a 3-5 hour float trip on the river. The campground has
canoes, large rafts and kayaks available. The float
trip will end at the campground.
Horseback riding will be
offered for children, teens and adults (up to
There is no pressure to sign up
for anything and this feast can be whatever Yahweh wants it to be for you. You can choose to spend
all your time just relaxing and fellowshipping with your family
and/or other feast goers, or you can choose to sign up for anything that
will be musical praise to Yahweh around the campfire every evening, and this
is a great time to get to know each other as brothers and sisters in
Yahweh. Getting believers connected to the body of Messiah and building up
families & individuals is our goal.
have described HIS feast as a life changing experience and the spiritual
highlight of the year!
Contact me if you
need some financial assistance in order to
attend. We don't want money to be a reason why anyone is unable to feast with
other believers...especially if you want to be baptized in Yahushua's name.
For those who can afford to help others,
you can contribute to the
feast-going fund to help anyone with costs of attending. This fund is
separate from the feast operating expenses of EliYah.com.
To contribute to the Fund,
please send your donation to:
P.O. Box 1255
Ava, MO 65608.
Please make sure you mention that
it's for the feast-going fund.
It's helpful to have contributions done
well in advance so that those who otherwise cannot afford to come will know that
there are funds available and make plans. If there is any left over, we'll save
it for another feast or put it in the open

night though so dress appropriately. Inclement
weather is always possible so make sure your tent and other

no electricity so they are even more ideal for primitive camping.
