YWAM Brisbane just spent a week (the week of Easter) camping and working at Easterfest in Toowoomba, Australia. Its pretty cool because even though its a Christian music fest, the community and government support and promote it, and it draws a huge crowd, Christians and non. It was so fun for me to help out, from carrying water bottles and checking wristbands, to hanging out in YWAM's chai tent. I think its been my favorite part of Australia. The music industry, musicians, that environment and atmosphere is something that I love to be around. It was also really cool to worship with hundreds of people on the evening of Easter Sunday- singing loud and praising God. (led by Jimmy Needham, who I didn't really know, but apparently he's pretty big on the Christian scene.)
I took a few photos, but mainly just enjoyed the week. It was pretty cold to be camping in tents, but it was fun, I hadn't been camping in ages.

So- most people that know me know that I'm not... a KID person. I love children- especially my niece and nephew. Kids are cute. But I'm not one of the those people who will chase down a mom with a baby so she can randomly cuddle. Or someone who would rather interact and roll around on the floor with the little ones than interact with adults.
But this past week we spent four days at an English preschool in Narimasu, Japan... and the little ones there stole little pieces of my heart! It was so amazing to get to spend several days with them- to play and cuddle and console (some of them had a hard time letting go of momma). I was especially thankful to the school for wanting to USE my art, and my love of photography, so I was able to capture some really great photos of the kids.
