Pre-Easter Fun

Not mine personally but my neighborhood. For at least 4 or 5 years now a non-profit religious organization called Mission Mineral Wells has coordinated a city wide effort to reach the people of Mineral Wells in partnership with the Police Department and local churches. Each year a certain neighborhood is targeted. It started with the ones who had the largest crime rate.

Taking the whole month of March or April (depending on when Easter is) we do an outreach every Saturday ending with the Saturday before Easter. The first week we prayer walk the area. The second week we hand out a gift bag with a few items for each family. The third week we clean up the area by  picking up and hauling off trash. The last and final Saturday is a big Easter Celebration with all sorts of games for the kids, face painting, bounce house, egg hunt and of course a short message

My dear friend Julianne decided to dress up as a clown. We manned the registration table. This was obviously before the event started. We stayed pretty busy after this. Another friend Lane Cawthon is seated at the table.

Keannon, Vanessa and the kids came out and enjoyed the festivities.

Waiting in line for face painting.

Korin is proud of her bucket of eggs!
