Today was-- get ready for the Easter Egg hunt outreach day.
Seven hours of making sixteen recipes of frosting, boiling 200 eggs and baking more than 600 cookies... and now everything is ALMOST ready for tomorrow!
The dough was made a few days ago, so we just had to pull it out and bake today.
Today went almost without anything happening. WE ran out of gas at the community center and had to move the operation to my house.... One time my oven pretty much fell over (its on bricks) and i burnt a few fingers. But other than that... smooth sailing!
Lily is ready for her presentation of the resurrection eggs too!
After we handed out 650ish flyers today for this Saturdays easter egg hunt outreach... we had our closing ceremony for this block of classes!
We celebrated English Class, Baking Class, Country Dance Class, Soccer, Crafts, Exercise, and Guitar. Jim gave a little devotion and we ate (no mexican celebration is complete without food!) Good time, good turnout (although i wish more class participants would have come), good food ;)
Friday and Saturday was spent at a youth leaders conference in Mexico City. A total of eight people went from the two churches in Ixtapaluca. It was a good time to hear about youth ministry in Mexico. Pray about the youth here and hear/share ideas!
I was proud that i kept up (listening and talking) in Spanish for a whole two day conference... =0)
