This past Tuesday evening we had our weekly gathering at our Campus Director's home and had a Passover Seder Celebration. We have done this in the past with our couples group from church and really enjoyed it. It is so powerful to see how the Exodus story and the passing over of the oldest Israelite firstborn points directly to Jesus. He is our passover Lamb and because of what He did for us we are passed over for the death sentence we deserve. So amazing. It is also a neat way to recognize the Jewish roots of Christianity and participate in a celebration that Jesus did 2,000 years ago. Most of our students had never even heard of a Passover Seder before so it was a new experience for all! We had some interesting mishaps with horseradish (some people got a little zealous with the amount they put on their Matzah bread - it's hot!) but overall I think it was a great way to remember what Jesus did for us and that this was God's plan all along.

We are finally recovering this week from a busy Spring Break! We were able to rent a house in Sunriver for Monday - Friday of Spring Break and we had 9 students come along with us. We all slept-in a bunch, hot tubbed, some went skiing/snowboarding, we shopped in Bend and explored Sunriver. We also spent a good amount of time just hanging out at the house watching March Madness b-ball, movies and reading a crocheting. Every night we all had dinner together and had a question of the day such as "what is one thing you want to have done before you die". It was a great time of just being relational and having fellowship with one another.
Early Friday morning Stephen and I left and drove 7.5 hours up to Spokane because his mom's friends were throwing me a baby shower! The drive didn't end up being too bad and I'm very thankful we were able to do it now at 27 weeks rather than later on in my pregnancy. I know I'm only going to get more uncomfortable as time goes on! Here are some pics from the gorgeous and fun shower. It was such a blessing to us!
