Silas’s whiteboard drawing of Jesus on the cross.
I love how all of our holidays have this great feel of people from all over the world coming together to celebrate. Yesterday, to celebrate the resurrection we had a houseful of people from Thailand, Laos, Philippines, U.S., and Nicaragua. Lan took full responsibility for planning the meeting and leading it and he did a great job. It’s been an awesome to see Lan grow as a leader. He’s in Bangkok for about a week, staying with us right now.
Here are a few pictures of our special (and HOT) Easter Sunday…
Ta’s sister Jam (left) and her friend were able to come to one of our meetings for the first time. She’s also Lao and working in Bangkok.
Our singing has improved since Lan taught himself guitar!
As usual Silas seats himself in the middle of the circle. We had singing in three languages, then testimonies, prayer, sticky rice communion and Bible Study.
Wanna and Utai joined us too and brought their famous sushi. Praying against salmonella from eating sitting-out-sushi and hard boiled eggs, eaten post-Easter egg hunt!
The kids dying some eggs during Sunday School time. I’m sure this was a first for Faa and Dtao. Their dad seemed really confused by the concept! 🙂 After finding their eggs, they ate them right up.
Brennan and his pretty egg.
Brown eggs make deeper colored eggs which I love.
On the hunt.
Hot and sweaty but they found them all…except for the stinky one Tom found later in the day.
A candy reward
Then a cool down in the pool. I wish I had a picture of Tom and the two Lans all sacked out on the front porch having an afternoon nap! It was also fun to have our friend Anna here (from our home church in Ohio)- she’s doing student teaching in Bangkok and got to join us for Easter. She and Dani and I went out for lunch in the neighborhood while the kids and guys got their naps. 🙂
Later in the afternoon, Eliza and I made some hot cross buns for fun. I never tried them before and didn’t know they were so much like cinnamon rolls- full of cinnamon sugar and raisins. Yummy Easter snack supper along with deviled Easter eggs :).
