So each year, hundreds of people gather at the steps of the Orthodox church in the center of town for a time of prayer, scripture, music, and a march at the beginning and it ends with a time of music and preaching by the different churches in the Rose Park. We had the privilege of going to be a part of this event (Ella and Jana, as Joel was with Daniel at a evangelistic crusade). Though I was not able to understand what was going on, it was so neat to be a part of this celebration, and I was very excited that when the band played, they played Agnus Day, by Michael W. Smith (I get pretty excited when I know songs here, because I can sing them in English).
|The March has begun|
|You can see their signs Hristos A Inviat (Christ is Risen)|
After our time at the March,we enjoyed a little time in the down town area, it was filled with people enjoying the holiday as well as the weather..... and for Ella - she loved the birds, the fountain, and the ice cream.
|Spring is here, the flowers are beautiful!|
|Wishing she could jump into the fish fountain|
|She thinks she is one of them :)|
|Talking to her pigeon friends, and giving them some bird seeds, she gets her love for birds from her Papa Snyder|
|Enjoying some raspberry ice cream, thanks Alexia!|
|Mariana and Alexia - pretending to enjoy their pineapple lemonade|
|That face shows her true feelings, bitter not very good!|
