Feast of Tabernacles 2012 Reservation
The Feast of Tabernacles and the Last Great Day will be kept in 2012 from the evening of Sunday, September 30, 2012, until and including Monday, October 8, 2012.
Individual reservations for the Feast 2012 with the Hilton Garden Inn in Pismo Beach, California, can commence on Friday, February 24, 2012. The hotel has been provided with a list of our members who are planning to attend. Those who have committed to attending with us have been individually contacted. However, everyone will still need to contact the hotel to make his or her individual reservation. When you call the hotel, please make sure that you mention that you are attending the Feast convention of the Church of the Eternal God.
Accommodation and services are at:
Hilton Garden Inn
601 James Way,
Pismo Beach, CA 93449
The hotel is offering us a reduced rate of $109.00 per night for a deluxe room. The reduced rate applies for the days of the Feast and also for up to four additional days just before and two days after the Feast. An additional 10% occupancy tax and 1% city tourism assessment applies to this rate. The rooms do not have kitchenettes, but they all have a microwave and a fridge, and a little counter area where one could fix a meal. The hotel is pet-free, but they would allow service/therapy dogs. They also have rooms for handicapped people.
The deluxe rooms are very spacious (approximately 300 square feet) and quite adequate for just a couple with one child. They have also a sleeper couch. Each deluxe room has a sink in the toilet area and another sink outside the toilet.
There is (wireless) Internet access throughout the hotel, including in the meeting hall (“the Mission Room”), which will hold up to 100 people. We will be having the meeting hall for the entire time, with a 24 hour-hold.
They are offering two free hot breakfasts each day per room (children under 12 eat free). The hotel is only five years old, and was extensively remodeled last year. The rooms are insulated to avoid any noise from the outside. They have a pool (heated throughout the year), a nice pool area, and an exercise room. The closest beach is 5 minutes away, and the area has many restaurants and shopping opportunities. Avila Beach with fire pits is about 10 or 15 minutes away.
Thank you very much for your prayers and continued cooperation–to assure that the Feast 2012 will be the best Feast ever (so far)…
For any other information, please contact Norbert or Johanna Link.
New Video Programs
A new StandingWatch program was posted on YouTube and on our Website www.standingwatch.org. It is titled, “The Truth About Marriage.” Can there be marriage between members of the same gender? Should people live together before they get married? Should one get married at all? If married, can they ever get a divorce? Did God establish marriage just for the purpose of procreation? Are contraceptives wrong? Did Mary remain a virgin until she died? Who told man that his natural state in marriage was sinful and dirty, and that Adam and Eve had to be ashamed of it?
A new German sermon was posted on YouTube, titled, “Satans Gericht” (“Satan’s Judgment”).

Our radio broadcasts are being posted on our Website, www.standingwatch.org.
