Suzi Herman was our guest teacher and she was also in on the surprise. We planned a Crash/Flash party for Pastor Estell’s 60th birthday.
Class starts at 7pm, at 7:29pm while doing a flag exercise the alarms went off on our cell phones as planned. It was annouced “It’s 7:29” and all the ladies in the class started setting up the tables ad chairs and decorating the room, at 7:30pm the door opened and approximately 50-60 people crashed the class. More arrived soon after. It was awesome to see so many people there that came to celebrate Pastor Estells birthday. It was so very nice. It was also so very hot in the room with all those people we had to set up chairs outside in the yard for groups to gather and socialize. There was so much food and beverages. Don, Pastor Estells husband bought this really beautiful sheet cake. Make sure you look for the pictures of it. The surprise was a real surprise as Pastor Estell was tearful and happy at the same time. She is a well known and well loved pastor that has helped many many people.
I want to thank everyone that came and also the SOS ladies, Suzi Herman and my helpers in pulling this surprise party together. Thank you Kim J., Sherry D., and Camely. I also want to thank Pastor Estell for all she has done for me. She is an awesome woman of God and I am privileged to know her and the other Calvary Chapel members.
