Even More from Sukkot!

Well, here we are yet again with some more about this past Feast of Tabernacles. Believe it or not, it's been less than three months since Sukkot. But have no worries! We're halfway to Passover! And besides, winter is fun, right?

Nonetheless, I am here to share with you an encouraging report from the Sukkot kept by the Passion for Truth ministry in Illinois. Thanks to Hannah for sending in the youth report!

"This year, we had Sukkot at Bon County Christian Camp out in Illinois. It's a beautiful place. I'm guessing there were about 100 people who came. We camped in tents. We had for the most part beautiful weather, and nice fall breezes.

It was an amazing experience for many people, as it was their first time ever being to a Sukkot. We would have a midrash under the Sukkah every morning and open up the Word, and dig in to some amazing things. In the afternoon, there would be classes. Some of the different classes were dancing, flags and what the different colors mean, how to build a fire from scratch, knot tying, cooking in the outdoors etc. There were also some fun kids classes. Some of the activities and crafts that they would do: Treasure hunts, making edible Sukkahs, singing, practicing for a play, etc. In the evenings, we would have worship and dance. It was an amazing time to spend time with the Father and praise Him. When it was dark, we would build a big bonfire, and sing and play games and tell stories. It was lots of fun.

The food that Passion For Truth provided in the evenings was delicious! From the salads, main dishes, sides, to the desserts! It was all very yummy. It was also an awesome time to fellowship.

Just being able to take a week and be with my true Mish-Picha (family), was an awesome feeling. To be able to hang out with friends and family ALL WEEK was so much fun!



It sounds like a great time was had by all! To go along with it, here is a link to some great photos taken of the feast with Passion for Truth:

Since winter is indeed upon us, we may now have the opportunity to view more content in the comfort and warmth of our homes. Which is why for those of you who read this blog, you should look for some more posts coming up over the next week or two (haven't we heard that before). But I mean it this time! We have a couple of short stories and articles to show you, as well as a video to link you to. But for now, may YHWH bless you and your families abundantly, and keep you warm during these cold months. He is good and always provides for His people in their time of need. So again, may YHWH bless you and keep you!
