Easter 2015

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: 
          that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 
          that he was buried, 
          that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures,  and 
          that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. 
I Corinthians 15:3-5 ESV

We had a great time celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord yesterday!  God saw fit to give us a tremendous rain storm most of the day, which definitely gave it an interesting flavor. :)

We helped organize a campus sunrise service and were very thankful for our covered basketball/fulbito court that allowed us to be outside, but dry.

Our family had guard duty this week (one family stays on campus every Sunday, for security reasons), so we put some hymns on the stereo and had an indoor egg hunt with the girls, followed by a family Bible lesson and reading of the events of Easter Sunday from the Gospel of John.

We were glad for the opportunity to host our friends Dan and Judy for lunch.  They have been in the States the last 4 months and it was good to catch up.  During lunch, the storm knocked the power out for awhile, which made for a special ambiance.
After our guests left, Kaylee and I spent most of the remainder of the afternoon playing games and doing puzzles with the girls.  My parents came back around 6:00 and we ended the day by watching the children's version of the Jesus movie and The Road to Emmaus.
