Easter Part Two, 2009!

(Sorry this post is very late!)

OUR SECOND EASTER PARTY

We invited the second group to celebrate Easter on April 29th. We pretty much did the same things as the first party, but I have to tell you that this was a bunch of ENERGETIC kids! There were many elementary school boys, and let's just say that none of them had "listening ears".

Eggs were colored, crafts were made. My throat was sore from having to yell throughout the 2 hours to be heard, so I was exhausted!!

 HOWEVER, I was still VERY glad that we had this party because the most important part went so well. Before the Gospel presentation time, Jeff and I prayed in our hearts that the children would be calm, and that they would somehow quiet down enough to hear a few words. God was gracious...the kids not only listened, but they were also verbally responsive. easter2-2009-storyboard

Throughout the story I'd hear them saying things like, "wow", "cool", "amazing", etc. And of course at the very end, we gave out the Manga Messiah (anime Bibles) to everyone. Even with the headache and the sore throat, it was WORTH it and so much more! May these children never forget the true meaning of Easter. May they think back on the story and remember that Jesus is their Savior. May each person come to a point of decision-making, and may they choose to follow their Creator.easter2-2009-group

P.S. Sandy Guerrero, they loved the SCE hats and visors!! Thanks!
