on saturday about 12 congregations in bellflower took over the city's easter egg hunt. due to fiscal cuts the city cancelled the 3 easter egg hunts so a friend, jane, who attends bellflower brethren church stepped up and mobilized over 200 volunteers in partnership with kingdom causes to put on the easter egg hunt. it went really well and you can see the article about it in the press telegram. there were probably about 2,000 people, an utterly chaotic and quick hunt, lots of crafts and games and people having a ton of fun.
on sunday we did enjoy the beach with the copelands, nespers and rob. it was beautiful, relaxing, the kids had a blast playing in the sand and water, and we had good conversation. love this tradition we have!
