He is risen! Today, we celebrate Christ’s victory over death. In our world of poverty, brokenness, injustice and despair, we have this hope. Jesus is making all things new.
A group of Compassion kids in Ecuador recently shared their reflections on what celebrating Easter means to them.
“It is a day of celebration because Jesus gave us eternal life and freedom. We celebrate by singing songs and praying.”
– Sara, 10
“Jesus is like a superhero because he was resurrected. No other superhero can do that. Jesus teaches us that we don’t have to live in fear because He is super powerful.”
– Cristian, 10
“Jesus died for everyone, for good people, and for bad people, but Jesus wants us to be good.”
– Salomé, 10
“Jesus came from far away to save the world, those of us who speak Spanish and those who speak English as well. Because Jesus also speaks English and Chinese.”
– Mateo, 8
“We celebrate that Jesus is more powerful than everything. Jesus is more powerful than death.”
– Abigail, 7
Happy Easter from the global Compassion family!
