An Easter to remember

We do things simply at Kuda Vana. The best moments are sharing a meal with the entire family, or gathering together for worship in our beautiful veranda overlooking the lake.

This past Sunday we celebrated the resurrection of Jesus Christ with an open air sunrise service at our Worship Center. Each child at Kuda Vana received a brand new pair of pajamas, a welcome gift as winter is approaching and the nights are getting colder. They bundled up and snuggled together as we retold the story of Jesus and his death for us on the cross. A fire kept us toasty as we watched the sun rise over the lake below. We reflected on the One who gave everything so that one day there would be no more pain, no more sorrow, no more orphans. Our children celebrated that He has risen, and death can no longer hold us!

Afterwards, we shared a family meal, with each house bringing a special dish to share. The children then played games, hunted Easter eggs and held relay races , one of their favorite activities.

We are so thankful for the hope we share that life on earth is not all there is. Our belief in Jesus gives us hope that one day each child in our care will have the opportunity to sit in the lap of their Father in heaven, and to be comforted knowing they are loved completely.
