He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Matthew 28:6
What beautiful words those are! To know that death does not have a hold over our Lord and Savior! Today was such a beautiful day to worship and thank our heavenly Father for His Son, His sacrifice, and His love!
This has been a whirlwind weekend starting on Good Friday bringing loads of kids from the poor communities where we minister: Varzea, Campinas, Sao Paulo, and Jarinu. Lots of fun, sun, games, activities, swimming and other crafts were had. Most of those returned to their homes in the evening but approximately twenty children and teens stayed behind and spent the entire weekend with us. We had these little munchkins (below) around our table last night while the bigger kids enjoyed their meal outside with a bonfire afterwards.
It has been a wonderful, blessed Easter! Thank you God!
