Our first Easter in Okinawa.. cold! I mean, cold for a subtropic island. Too cold for an egg hunt on the beach, sadly.  Or conveniently, I’m not sure.

A house full of boys, street full of kids, friends, good food, and a whole lot of (need for) Jesus.

We got a crawler this Easter. He makes one move and is done. Just as well because I’m happy to keep him one place.

Rushing out the door trying to get this picture, I just put my camera in my purse and subsequently took it in to church.  I’m glad I did! After worship the band played wipe out as 20 something beach balls flew through the air.

And that wasn’t it! To drive home the umbrella of grace we through balls and finger rockets to an unprotected demonstrator. Hello, youth group. I’ve missed you. Looking for a church? Koza Baptist is solid.

Coconut cake without the coconut shavings! On an ISLAND! I searched for coconuts, finally find them and they were moldy!! Sprinkles it is.
