Dear Sukkot 2017 Family,
Wow! What an awesome Feast we had! We truly got to enjoy special time with our Creator, with our families and with each other! We created special memories singing together, sharing testimonies of His greatness together, praying together and laughing together! We cooked together, floated on the river together, walked around the park together, played volleyball together and shared our meals together! We learned how to fear Him always and in all ways! We rejoiced before our Maker and were thankful together! Who could forget the awesome “Thank you Heavenly Father! Thank you Heavenly Father! Thank you Heavenly Father! Thank you Heavenly Father!”
We blind folded each other to learn the lessons of walking by faith and not by sight, giving clear instructions, and obeying perfectly! We learned how important accurate thinking is to study His Word as we went on a treasure hunt practicing the concept of Here a Little There a Little (Isaiah 28: 9-10). We learned how to forgive each other as our Savior forgave, and how to Love as He loved. We learned how to Be Ready, endure to the end and truly BELIEVE His Word and how to do that!
So many wonderful things make up the memories and lessons of this year’s Sukkot celebration! None of these things could have happened without the loving help, the giving attitudes, and the free-will offerings of all who attended! So we want to share with all of you one last “Thank you Heavenly Father, Thank you Heavenly Father, Thank you Heavenly Father, Thank you Heavenly Father”! from the Harris Family…Thank you Heavenly Father…
For all who attended this year’s Feast of Tabernacles/Sukkot! EVERYONE played an important part in making it a big success! Thank you for all of the support you all gave to our Sukkot Family! So many people helped not only out in the open, but also behind the scenes in various ways. Yah knows who you all are and what you all did…little things and big things alike such as picking up trash, cleaning up the tent of meeting, helping with the cooking, donating food, sharing extra special treats, special prayers offered up for each other, encouraging words given, backs cared for, information shared to lead each other to better health, kitchen cleaned, dishes washed, babies cared for, children pushed on swings (that were made by someone ), music shared, feet moved with dance, hearts turned to each other, re-commitments to YAH and doing things HIS way, meals shared, tents set up, tents torn down, rides to town, food prepared (and eaten!)… Thank you to ALL!
We want to take time to give a special shout out to:
Big Oak Campground, for all your generosity, easy going and joyful attitudes, and all the time and effort you put into providing a great camp for us to celebrate! It was awesome! ?
The Stahl Family! For everything you brought to make Sukkot Awesome! The tent of meeting and the sound system and helping with the drink station to be specific among other things! Y’all are a blessing in so many ways!
To The Kral Family! For all the chickens, deer and goat y’all donated to folks during the feast! It added a delicious touch!
To Desmond Taber! For spending hard tireless hours seasoning cooking and smoking all the meat on your amazing grill!
To Craig Pearce! For bringing all the leafy branches for rejoicing and for the Sukkahs! Your effort was such a blessing, and we are so appreciative especially after the hurricane damaged your area, making your offering a bit more difficult to achieve!
To Joey, Jeremy, Joseph, Paige, Ben, Bob, Desmond, and anyone else who helped our family with kitchen duty! All your help was greatly appreciated!
To John Stockton! For giving people chiropractic treatments! ?
To the Gonzales Family! For bringing more instruments, and music to worship with!
To Caleb and Michael Camero to Vivian, the Stockton girls and the Stahl boys for helping to take videos and pictures!
To the Guajardo Family! For providing the Water filter system so we had good water and did not have to leave to fill up the jugs! And to all those who extended their willing hands to help out with the community drink station!
And just to everyone else! Y’all added so much playing your parts! Your smiles, love, subjects to discuss, perspectives, giving of gifts, doing little things and big things! Everyone was such a blessing in their own way, and this past feast would have not been the same without each of you!
We pray you all are well and staying strong! We pray you are walking in encouragement to grow closer to Him in all that you do! We pray that you as individuals, families and congregations are walking towards Him more faithful than ever! May you continue with Him!
Thank you all again for everything! We love you all so very much and are praying for you all!
