KANDAHAR AIRFIELD, Afghanistan - Soldiers of the 143rd Expeditionary Sustainment Command participated in an Easter sunrise service here April 12.

1st Lt. Lameka D. Grayson, a 143rd support operations officer, led the choir, composed of several Soldiers, in a variety of worship songs and hymns.

Other Soldiers performed in a play depicting the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Staff Sgt. Craig Huggins, a 143rd command group noncommissioned officer, played the part of Jesus, and Sgt. 1st Class Cynthia D. Francis, a 143d support operations NCO, played the Angel of the Lord.

Staff Sgt. Oshaonna L. Bryant, a 143rd support operations NCO, played one of the weeping women at the crucifixion and empty tomb.

"I enjoyed being in the skit," said Bryant. "The fact that we are deployed and they still had a service just like at home makes it feel like home, even though we're in Afghanistan."
