Shining Stars Egg Hunt

Today at Shining Stars (the Water Angels ministry to the homeless children) the children hunted 1700 eggs on the property adjacent to Water Angels. The children were so excited, and thrilled to find egg-after-egg!

Leaving the building for the hunt...

Anthony is so excited!
Sarah Grace grabbed some goodies too!

In front of the outdoor chair...Mason and Franklin try not to be too conspicuous.
Mother and son. Adorable!
Braden is up for the hunt!
Cole willingly helped others fill their bags!
Kristy, I think she understands! Yeah!
Mytravia strikes a pose!

Group photo of everyone! Thank you to the girl scout troop who gave their time to hide the eggs! Thank you!

Checking out the loot! Braden and Lamar count. Jessica is always helping someone! Lamar found 71 eggs! He was thrilled!

And the winner is...Emanual. Stephanie gave him a HUGE stuffed dog for finding the most eggs!
At the end, it's time to clean up and set up to do it all again tomorrow! Reid is vacuuming to help prepare the facility for the Easter service. Stephanie pulled out the baptismal so I assume there will be at least one baptism! Yeah!

After the service, there will be another Easter Egg hunt. However, this one will be for the adults! Our church has donated over 3,000 filled Easter eggs! Thank you! Come join us if you can!

Please pray everyone will understand the true meaning of the celebration. What a wonderful God we serve!
