"Jesus was placed on a cross with a crown of thorns. He is alive now in heaven. Jesus exists and loves me and that makes me feel happy."
— Belinda, Bolivia
girl from Rwanda
"Every Saturday before Easter there is a celebration day at the center. Different choirs perform Easter songs and the older children at the center perform a drama about Jesus’ death and resurrection. On Easter Sunday my family prepares a nice meal."

“At Easter, we eat sweet beans, we bathe in the pool, and it is very special because I can play and have fun and spend time with my family.”
