The Feast of Tabernacles/Sukkot 2016 Recap!

Sukkot 2016 Was SO blessed!

We spent the whole time camping on a Texas Ranch in northern Texas near Gainesville, Texas.

This feast celebration was truly joyous in every way!!! Spent many good times with good friends as well as met some amazing new people who all love YHWH and want to please HIM! The Kindred spirit in these people made me so happy and to see the brothers and sisters truly enjoying themselves and dwelling together in UNITY…It was a true blessing!

The families that came together, became like one big happy family! We saw so much healing and family restoration take place it makes me want to dance! Yah is so good and we love to see how He is working in other’s lives!!! HalleluYah!

Our time of studying, praise and fellowship was truly one to remember as it always is at the Feast of Tabernacles, and this year was just another testimony of the blessings that come with obeying the Father’s commands! We are so thankful for another year of the Almighty’s goodness playing out in celebration of the feast of tabernacles!

 Dear Family in Messiah,

We are happy to announce the location for The Feast Of Tabernacles 2016!

After prayer, and seeking where we would have it this year,
Yah led us to host at the beautiful Lone Oak Ranch!
(you’re going to love this place!)
Lone Oak Ranch is located just north of Dallas in Gainesville, Texas
and is a Private Place to hold retreats! This place will suit our group well
and will provide a quiet and set apart place to keep the Feast!
Our family is really looking forward to Celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles once again,
as it is truly one of the highlights of our year! If you are looking for a great family atmosphere,
love and unity, a growing environment, and lots of enjoyable Spiritual Food as well as physical
food and feasting, then you are in the right place!
We are all about having fun in a holy, YHWH centered way, and we love to incorporate
biblical lessons in every game we play!  Scripture Studies are in depth and everyone is
encouraged to grow to greater heights becoming more like the Father in Heaven.
Not only do we all enjoy the fellowship and activities, but we desire that all who attend
become like Family sharing their time with us, dwelling together in unity!

There are plenty of opportunities to help us out to make this year a great year. In our physical body, each system works in harmony with the other making our bodies function properly.

Mat 6), the entire body will work in harmony making some very great things happen! There is also the saying that says “Many hands make the job lite!” So we would like to encourage each and everyone of you to get involved in serving the Body of Messiah at least one time during Sukkot making the load lighter for us all yet providing awesome learning times, practice times and memories of this years celebration!

Dwelling together in UNITY – Watch the New Video Now!!!

Shalom Brothers and Sisters!

Is everyone getting excited about the upcoming Celebrations? I know my family and I certainly are! All of the Feast days of our Creator are something to look forward to, but I’m especially excited about Sukkot! Sukkot is THE ultimate time of the year for Rejoicing and for dwelling together with the body of our Messiah in Unity! So much so that I’ve put together a new video highlighting exactly that, entitled “How good and how pleasant!” This is my little gift to you to inspire and encourage my Family in Messiah for this coming Sukkot.

In light of “preparing a people for YHWH” (Luke 1:17), most of the videos on this site are addressed to the body of Messiah, to help them get ready for The Feast of Tabernacles no matter where they attend.

Well that’s all for now, and I hope you enjoy the video!
Shalom to you all!

Brother Mark Harris and Family!
