Following the church service we split the children into two groups and hunted the eggs that they dyed yesterday. In total we boiled, dyed, hid, and hunted 124 eggs. It was the first time any of them had dyed, hid, or hunted an Easter egg. It is not a tradition here in Paraguay. They were thrilled with the idea and loved eating the eggs after they found them (thankfully I had refrigerated them after we dyed them yesterday). For lunch today the kids had eggs and for dinner they had rice with eggs!
As an update, the house parents for the new house have arrived and have been working to prepare their home for the arrival of the children. I will introduce you to the new children as soon as they arrive. Please keep them in your prayers. Also keep our Sunday services in your prayers. It is such a blessing to be able to teach the Bible to these precious children. Pray that the Lord would direct us in our lesson topics and that he would help us each week to capture the children's attention as we share.
Happy Easter from Paraguay!
