Pentecost Sunday Ball....

Once again we celebrated Pentecost Sunday with our church family/friends. Freckles was so excited to attend this year. What is Pentecost you might ask? Pentecost Sunday marks the day when the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles/believers. It occurs 50 days after Easter. The Bible records the Pentecost in Acts 2:1-13. It also comes 10 days after the Ascension of Jesus Christ. It is also known as 
"The birthday of the Church".

Pentecost, with Christmas and Easter, ranks among the great feasts of Christianity. Not only does it commemorate the decent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and disciples, but also the fruits from the effects of the Biblical event: The completion of the work of redemption, the fullness of grace for the church and its children, with the gift of faith for all nations.

Our church celebrates Pentecost Sunday with feasting and dancing. It is one of the biggest events that we look forward to throughout the year. It truly is a magical time spent with our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. This year is extra special to us, for it may be one of the last times we spend time with this church...We said our goodbyes to many of our friends. I can finally say for certain we are moving up North to San Jose California for a year long internship/ Then church planting in the Bay area. We are truly blessed by this new church and delightful congregation. We look forward to working with them and serving. Yet, this will be one function we will surely miss. 

It's so good to see Freckles smiling this big after a long, trying time. 
These are moments that will forever be cherished.

P.S. Here is a picture I am squeezing in this post of my son and a gal friend 
he took to her prom this weekend. Just wanted to share it.

I know you must be thrilled. hey at least most of your stuff is still packed, right? and you can pretty much just go! Do you have to go house hunting there or is the church providing a place?
