Feast Development Fund
After 18 years in the “wilderness,” keeping the Feast in ten different camps in the Midwest and investigating possible use of hundreds of other camps around the country, we have made the decision to observe next year’s Feast of Tabernacles at YRM’s facility in Holts Summit, Missouri. Our previous expansion of our new fellowship hall makes this somewhat feasible. However, we are still lacking adequate lodging.
Since our camping and RV spaces are limited and our grounds don’t allow for expansion without considerable excavating, we have concluded that a bare-bones metal structure with simple lodging is the most economical solution to meet most of our challenges. Shown is a preliminary design of our 130’x60’x20’ building along with a few recent photos of the progress. This new facility will be used for multiple purposes, including lodging (28 basic rooms) for Feasts and youth / family retreats, children and youth activities, additional meeting space, and approved community use.
This building is crucial for the Feasts, especially for Tabernacles, and will also be a blessing in so many other ways! For the time being most feast-goers will need to stay in tents, campers, or local hotels. However, once complete, this facility will provide for more necessary lodging.
Currently, the erecting company is working on our new building and should be finished with the exterior in the coming weeks. After we pay the erecting company, the funding set aside by the Ministry and received from our faithful partners will be depleted. After the current expenses are paid, we project a need of an additional $175,000 to finish interior of the structure and heating/cooling. Please consider providing your assistance to YRM in this new endeavor. Your support is greatly needed!
