It’s a little late, but we still thought that this step-by-step scenario on “How to celebrate Easter in Africa” was an interesting cross-cultural experience. We wanted to share with you right around the time of Pentecost, a post-Easter holy day on the liturgical calendar:
Step 1. Buy and transport cow to feed the whole village
Step 2. grocery shop for the village and cook food for your sqaud
Step 3. Put up tent for the third time this week
Step 4. Trudge to Church in the mud
Step 5. Worship the Risen King, Ordain a Pastor and Plant a Church!
Step 6. Save your energy… it’s going to be a long day
Step 7. Take it all down again
Step 8. Most importantly… spend time celebrating with your friends and family!
Sarah is from Delaware. Her faith journey started at 4 years old when she got to leave the nursery and trek up to big church to be baptized with her baby brother. For her, growing up as a Christian has been like a roller coaster: there are times when her faith has been strong and times when she has been too stubborn to accept the guidance that God provides. She is just thankful that God has never let her get off the ride. She misses the University of Delaware like crazy, but is currently on a year-long mission trip around the world.
