The Cross Ministry!!

First of all, HaPpY EaStEr!!!!!!!

Easter is not about bunnies and eggs, but I know y'all already knew that! It is about Jesus dying on the cross for our sins and rising up from the dead!! Jesus endured a horrible horrible death so that we may live. Last Sunday our pastor was talking about Jesus' crucifixion and he was very detailed and graphic. It is so hard to hear, but it needs to be heard. I just imagined sending Noah to do that and was in awe of God's love for us!!!!

In honor of Easter I would like to share a ministry with y'all that is near and dear to my heart. It is the Cross Ministry! In a nutshell, Todd's uncle read an email and was inspired to make crosses to give out (for free) for others to put in their yard as a witness for Christ. You would not believe the number of crosses that have been made so far and given out! It is on FIRE!!!! This past Sunday my dad, mom, and I handed out 200 crosses at my church! Then we were asked to bring 50 more by Wednesday :D

Here we are ready to hand out crosses!! My dad and I!!!
My super handsome daddy!!!!! Did you know that he makes the crosses?? He is quite the woodworker!!! He has been making crosses day and night trying to fulfill the orders!
My gorgeous Momma with me!! She has been helping my dad paint the crosses b/c like I said we are getting TONS of orders from Todd's uncle!

I just could not believe that everyone was taking a cross and telling me thank you! I was just sooo thankful that they were taking a cross. I could not stop saying thank you to them as they took a cross!! Now when I drive into town I see them in yards and my heart just smiles!!!

It is easy to get involved!! We are encouraging churches and others to make crosses and are willing to show you how and etc. If you want you can click HERE and visit the website for more information on how it all started and the progress!! The Cross Ministry is on facebook too, so click HERE for that :D
