This report was submitted by Sophia Lewis:
The 1st Annual Easter Egg Hunt was held on Sunday, April 12, 2009 at the future site of the developing “A Piece of Heaven While Here on Earth Prayer Garden” located at 1900 Orthodox Street.
The developing lot had 469 colorful plastic eggs filled with candy treats and biblical scriptures for a chance to win an Easter Basket for ages 1-15. There were also candy filled eggs and cash money totaling $50 for ages 16-19. One youth collected $25. Local community churches were invited to engage their Sunday School youth in this learning fun-filled event. The children had a wonderful time and they especially enjoyed the Easter Story and the sampling of the Resurrection Cookies which were provided prior to the egg hunt.
We would like to express a sincere thanks for the contributions of candy, baskets, and monetary gifts which filled the plastic egg containers, the following people made our 1st Annual Easter Egg Hunt a success:
Pastor Mary P. Elum-Butler from St. Thomas United Methodist Church
Amelia E. Lewis, Founder from The Gill Missionary
Mr./Mrs. Dwaine & Yesenia Lewis, Sr. of DJ’s Deli
Deacon Donald & Evangelist Lizette Lewis, Sr. from The Deliverance House of God Prayer For All People
