Easter Sunday

This year Easter came after our Spring break so we had all the dorm kids here in the dorm for Easter. We had to plan carefully to get everyone over to the Goudel School for the sunrise service as we can not get everyone (legally) in our two vans. Despite our careful planning one child got left behind... our seven year old, Mikaylah! Thankfully our neighbours brought her home and she didn't even realize she was overlooked!

For lunch we all went to the river property (our kids call it Mango Camp) for a picnic and a relaxing time under the canopy of mango trees.

Some of the kids went to the sand bar and even waded in the Niger River.

After that we decorated Easter eggs and had an easter egg hunt!

Later in the afternoon we went to the Winsor's house for the baptism of 8 children from our church.

Jonathan Wright, from our mission was the eighth child. It was an emotional, beautiful service. In all it was a fantastic day to remember HE IS RISEN!!
