Wishing you all a blessed Easter!
Here are a few snapshots from our worship service on Good Friday. Whenever we have a 'special' service (Christmas, Easter, Profession of Faith), anyone who wants to has the opportunity to present an "item" after the service. Usually a song, often sung in their mother tongue, which for most is not pidgin. Two groups of Sunday School children sang, as well as the Women's Bible Study, and these three girls you see here.
Yeah, Ian and I sang too. During his sermon, Ian had shared the story of when the hymn, "It is well with my soul" was written--after the author lost all four of his daughters to the Atlantic sea. As we remembered Christ's death on the cross for us, this verse was so powerful: "my sin--o the bliss of this glorious thought--my sin not in part but in whole, was nailed to the cross and I bear it no more, praise the Lord, praise the Lord o my soul."
After the service, we enjoyed donuts that some of the women had made--they stayed up almost all night making 300 of them!! And then, some played volleyball and others just sat around on the grass, storying with one another.
It was a wonderful way to celebrate our Lord Jesus' saving work on the cross!
