By Mac Overton
BIG SANDY, Texas--Members of the Churches of God will meet at hundreds of sites in several countries, most beginning this year Friday evening, Oct. 13, and continuing through the Sabbath of Oct. 21.
From Angel Fire, N.M., to Thailand, church brethren will meet for the eight-day festival as instructed in Leviticus 23.
The Journal invites Feastgoers to send in short reports about the brethren and their activities at the Feast this year as soon as possible after the observance. Some reports may appear in the October issue; more will run in November and probably December.
Mail information to Festival Report, The Journal, P.O. Box 1020, Big Sandy, Texas 75755, U.S.A. You may also E-mail the information to firstname.lastname@example.org (mention "Feast report" in the subject line) or fax it to (903) 636-9097.

Please include the names of the nearest city and the state or province, as well as the name of the country, in which the Feast was observed.

The Journal plans to publish a limited number of Feast photographs. A writer is invited to include one or two good-quality color or black-and-white prints of people at his or her Feast site. Close-ups showing people's faces are preferred over shots of buildings or other facilities. Please attach a note describing the content of the photos, including the subjects' names and identification of the locations, as well as the subjects' cities of residence and the photographer's name. If photos are submitted over the Internet, please send them as separate files (in, for example, JPEG or Photoshop format). Do not include them as part of a Word or other word-processing file.
