To wrap up Easter weekend, I’m going to share how mine went!
It was crazy busy as always. On Friday night, my roommate and I went back to my home town for an annual play at my home church. I was in it until I was 17 and the rest of my family is still in it, so naturally I had to go see them! The Passion Play is a big hit and I couldn’t miss it, even though it meant two trips home in one weekend. The play is the life, death, and resurrection of Christ highlighting the important moments in His life. I was also excited to bring my roommate home for the first time to show her my world. Here are some photos!
After the play, I went back home in order to work Saturday morning, then afterwards, I went with my roomie and my Drexel buddies to Drexel church to do some cleanup work. We mainly scraped paint, polished the pews, set out Easter eggs, and had a fantastic time. We got a lot of work done in a short amount of time cause we worked really hard! It was nice to see some improvements too since there hasn’t been any in a long time. It was also great because it was all done in preparation for our Sunday service.
For Easter Sunday today, we woke up real early for the Drexel community sunrise service. As cold as it was, we kept the service short with some worship songs and a small devotion. God knew about our service and painted a breathtaking sunrise. I wasn’t able to catch the full beauty on camera but I tried! After the sunrise service, we had our normal gathering of our own back at our church. We had so much fun with it.
Drexel has become home to me. It’s a small town with that perfect home-town feel. I absolutely adore it. It’s been a tremendous blessing to me and my growth this semester. We are continuing next semester and hopefully recruiting incoming freshman ministry majors — and others who are interested. It’s a real encouragement to the community of Drexel and even to the MNU community!
Easter is important to me because of the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It’s a time to be thankful for all He’s done, spend time with family, and of course eat food. (: In the midst of everything going on, knowing Christ is risen from the dead gives me hope each and every day.
