Easter On the Hill with Tim Tebow

Easter On the Hill

Well, it was no secret about Tim Tebow coming to our church for Easter! It was everywhere, in the news, on Jay Leno, online, everyone seemed to be talking about it. And it did not disappoint! It was an incredible event that I'm so glad we got to be a part of.

David served in the volunteer parking lot, that opened at 4:30am, so he got to church around 4am, got the volunteers parked and then was getting buses in and out of the lot all day. He didn't leave the lot until around 3pm, so he was there, on his feet for almost 12 hours straight, and didn't get to see one minute of the event. It's because of him and other people like him, that this event went off so smoothly! I was so proud of him for serving and not complaining, and just doing whatever it took so other people could come and hear the gospel.

Riley and I served in the Kids tent, so we got there around 6:30 and helped set up the tent, and get the face painting going. We did face painting and the eye black tattoos that said "John 3:16" under the eyes. Those were a big hit and we ran out of those before the service even started.

We ended up with nearly 20,000 people there, and over 1,000 salvations! In the end, that's what it was all about, not Tim Tebow, or Joe Champion, but about people coming to know Christ, so I would say it was a success, and all those early morning trainings, orientations, prayer meetings, it was all worth it. I'm so proud of my church, and I can't wait to see what God will do next!
