Happy Easter

This past Sunday we had an amazing Easter celebration with the kids. A local restuarant called New Paradise provided nearly 40 of the kids with an authentic western style brunch. It was truly a sight! After, with the help of several local and foreign friends, we trucked over to a local park and had a massive easter egg hunt. I dont think Luoyang has ever seen anything like it!

Once all the eggs were discovered, our good friend Mike explained the Easter story in detail. The kids and random passerbys alike were intrigued and captivated.

No Easter would be complete without a bit of Easter egg painting so we returned to the orphanage and began an egg painting frenzy. The kids had a blast painting everything from trees and cups to Crosses.

It was truly an amazing day! Thank you to all of our friends here in Luoyang for helping make it possible and a special thanks to Tim and Melissa Bueckers for putting so much thought and effort into Sunday.
