Easter Rally

Easter used to be filled with hours of shopping for that perfect Easter dress that I normally ended up having to wear a sweater or jacket over top of as it was normally freezing on Easter. Our Easters now are filled with finding clothes that we don’t mind getting dirty. Every Easter weekend, Baptists from all over Botswana gather in a field in a small village called Radisele.  It truly is such a sweet time to escape the everyday distractions and spend Friday-Sunday with our brothers and sisters in Christ worshipping our risen Savior. Brent lead several seminars on tithing and Amanda helped teach the 45+ kids that attended.
