need some financial assistance in order to
attend. We don't want money to be a reason why anyone is unable to feast with
the brethren...especially if you need to be baptized in Yahushua's name. In 5
years of doing this, I've never had to turn anyone down.
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: Treasures
of Yahweh P.O. Box 1255 Ava, MO 65608. 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
