Simbari children join the celebration

Every year the Simbari believers celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. They love to celebrate Easter by acting out a drama and this year was no different.

Except, that is, for one thing. This year for the first time, missionary Lori Morley writes, the Simbari believers included children in their singing and celebration of Christ’s resurrection from the dead.

She writes, “This morning as we entered the church, we were told that instead of calling out the numbers of the songs to sing like we usually do, we were to call out the names of the children who were standing at the front.” Lori says that as each name was called, the child would turn around to reveal a number on his or her back.
