While you may be distant in miles and culture, you were present in each celebration of hope and new life. Having trouble viewing this email?Click here How was your Easter? You've probably asked or answered that question several times this week. Your answer might include stories about family gatherings, special church services or the relief everyone feels now that spring has finally arrived. Tempting dishes of leftover candy at home or the office are likely the only remnant of the holiday gone by. At Lifeline, we pray that the hope of Easter's story remains alive in your heart every day. Holidays come and go. Traditions fade. But the truth of the resurrection changes everything. Because our mission is to restore hope among the nations, we just keep living the realities of Jesus' story each and every day. You have helped restore hope among the nations this Easter. Your sacrifice, prayer, service and gifts have enabled people in Honduras, El Salvador, Haiti, Cuba, Guatemala, Panama, Navajo Nation and Canada to discover what genuine, lasting hope really is. Thank you! On Easter Sunday, there were 7228 people who worshipped a risen Savior in 46 Lifeline churches around the world. There were 63 baptisms in Haiti alone. While you may be distant in miles and culture, you were present in each celebration of hope and new life. In Central America, their celebrations were similar to ours...with a few twists.

Imagine that?! Lifeline's 3-month-old church plant in Alberta, Canada (Northern Hills Christian Church) had over 1000 people at a carnival on Saturday, which included an egg hunt, bouncy houses, games and snacks. Not only did this unite the new church members who served together in this outreach project, but the church even had 21 first-time guests on Easter Sunday. Many of the Navajo know about the secular traditions in the USA, but now they are starting to uncover the depth of meaning Easter holds. Haiti offers the most unique Easter traditions. Secular celebrations with roots in Voodoo run the spectrum from Rara, a relatively harmless week- long revelry with music and dancing in the streets, to parades led by witch doctors that mocks the death of Jesus. Perhaps it's those evil influences that drive Haitian Christians deeper in worship at Easter. Churches sometimes have 1-2 weeks of revival-style services. Intense prayer -- individually and as a congregation -- is common. Many believers fast from Good Friday until Sunday, breaking their fast with communion at a sunrise gathering. Whether it was 850 gathered in our largest church in Haiti (Mahotierre Christian Church) or emerging house churches in Guatemala and Panama celebrating their first Easter together, the joy was the same for every believer. No matter where you live or what traditions you have, the message of Easter is always the same. Together as one, we serve a LIVING Savior.
