Jesus Waked Up!

Kelly King enjoying her time in Africa with some new friends!
JT and our great friend, Bo Hardy, in South Africa.
Easter morning with the children...Kaitlyn, Madison and Jett.
The kids counting down the days until Poppa returns home!

When you ask Jett what Easter is about, this is a snippit of what he says....Jesus died on the cross and then He waked up! While it may be in 4 year old terms, he gets the basic idea. He loves to look through His Bible and find the picture of Jesus on the cross. He makes his sad face and then pretends to be asleep. He peeks out of one eye and tries to find the resurrection without looking too much. When he finds it, he miraculously wakes up..makes sense to me!

We had a great Easter celebration this weekend. Yesterday, we celebrated the resurrection at church and then went to the home of John and Mary Crisp. We ate like it was Thanksgiving....what a treat for us when JT was out of town.

Speaking of JT, we can talk to each other while he's in Africa but the rates are still high. So, we have little communication time. I did get some pictures from our friend Bo who just returned yesterday. So, I'm posting a few of Easter and Africa. In one of the photos, the kids are holding a calendar. My friend Angelia gave me a calendar as a visual way of helping Jett understand how long Poppa would be gone. This time will be a total of 19, as we mark each day off, Jett gets so excited...he counts how many days are left and talks about getting Poppa at the airport. Oh, what a joyous reunion that will be!

Please pray for those mommas still waiting on their babies as well a special unspoken prayer request for someone close to me today.
