Easter meal in Kenya

In Kenya, Sebastian and his family celebrate Easter by sharing a special meal together. Their meal includes rice, chicken, bread and soft drinks which are a special treat. The family also decorate their home with a wooden cross and palm leaves.

Easter kites in Haiti

In Haiti, many children spend Good Friday flying kites. As Peterson explains, “Good Friday is one of the rare days that I have the freedom to go out with my friends to play all day long, and also to eat a big meal. We then go to a special service at the church project.”

Girl with Bible in Ghana

In Ghana, Leticia and her family wear white to church on Easter Sunday. For Leticia, “Easter assures me of the love God has for me to sacrifice His only son for me. And also that Jesus agreed to die for me because He also loves me.”

This weekend, while not take some time to write to your sponsored child and ask them how they celebrated Easter.
