The students participated in a Teen Missions Promotion over the Easter Weekend at the
Australian Easterfest which is a Gospel music festival with 35,000 + people attending. They supervised a mini OC and Sumo wrestling and gave away about 1500 free slushies (they had to run the OC first to get the slushy). They gave out about 2000 brochures and talked to a lot of people who came through the tent about coming on summer teams. So far we have 6 registrations for the Australia Boot Camp from the Easter effort.
