DonB! at the Easter EGG-stravaganza

The egg, and the Message.

Last Saturday, I, along with my family, went over to Willmar, Minnesota, to the Willmar Assembly of God Church, where my good clown buddy, Pastor Randy Christensen and his family live.

Since this was a first time event for the church, Randy didn't know how many people to expect. He said, "It could be anything over 200." Willmar Assembly sent out a postcard for the event to every house in Willmar. With God's blessing, over 900 people showed up, many of them without a home church. It proves that when a church, as a whole, gets behind an outreach event, especially when it is designed for kids, this is how successful it can be.

The event was the Easter EGG-stravaganza, where 5000 eggs were spread around the church grounds for kids to collect. Just prior to the egg hunt, I did a 40-minute show along with a "Meaning of Easter" message.

So, along with collecting candy and jumping on inflatable moon bounces, they had a few laughs at the show and heard the Easter presentation. MORE PICTURES
