This was one of my favorite Easters. I really missed Family, and many of the traditions of an Easter service that I am used to but what a fabulous day to reflect on our Savior. We are busy here learning language and living life but I yearned for our kids to have a sense of the importance of the holiday so amidst sickness, lack of sleep and helping our teammates move we had our best Easter because of it’s simplicity. Hope you simply enjoyed reflecting upon our risen Lord as well! The highlight of our day we don’t have a photo of but 8 people accepted Christ in church this morning (Praise God!) Here is what Holy Week looked like for our family in Melut, South Sudan. What are your favorite simple easter rhythms?
Flower-girl made this to hang in our window to remind us of what we have been given in Christ. We made the paint out of powdered food dye.
Auntie Claire read the bible verses in each egg that corresponded with the items we took out
We seek to empower our children, our teammates and our Sudanese friends to love and know more of who God is through acts of loving service and biblical teaching.
