The Celebration

Last year, I was introduced to a new (for me) way of celebrating Easter. So we decided to do things similarly in Gonaives. It is good to remember the death and resurrection of Jesus. 

Good Friday turned into Good Saturday here. But everyone was on the roof. It's an amazing thing to watch the moon rise while listening to a friend preach/talk. To take communion in community. To pray and reflect back to God.

Easter was celebrating. We all got to bring a friend to come share in a feast. We sat in the yard on beautiful mats, ate delicious food, and then contra danced. Sharing things with people can be hard here. But sharing with friends is so very good.

Good food, great friends.
