Christmas Packages for Easter

We normally distribute Samaritan's Purse's Operation Christmas Child packages in December/January for Christmas. This year, they asked us if we wanted extra packages around Easter as well and we said "yes". People can order packages online until January and then they made them up and sent them to us in March. Luckily we had the Czech team to help us unload the truck. Then we waited for Orthodox Easter (which is on the 1st of May this year) to hand them out for Easter!

We did multiple distributions over two days, and as usual it was a lot of work, but so much fun. Here is Ljilja with Nestor at one of the distributions. He has been one of our actors in our last two Christmas productions in 2015 and 2014
But this time, we just used a DVD which we had which was the Easter story told in 15 minutes: which made things a lot less stressful :)
And then it was time to give out the packages: This is the part I love!

The best part is seeing the smiles on the kids faces!
