Holy Week

One of perks of working for the Church is a nice long weekend for Easter. The offices closed on Thursday and Friday. All I did was sleep, watch movies, read, and attend church services. Most of the people on the compound visited their families, so it was pretty quiet.

Below is a short photo diary of my Holy Week. I actually missed Good Friday service because a local priest died that day and they moved the time of the service without telling me. While, I had all intentions of going, it didn't work out.

It was a quieter, simpler Easter than I'm used to but I greatly enjoyed the break after all the traveling I've been doing. And it was simply TOO HOT to do anything at all.

{Homemade treats for after the service. Thanks Mom, for the napkins and plates!}

{Mom sent Easter Egg dye and it was a great hit with all the kids}

{Somehow each egg was a shade of pink, purple, or blue and doused in glitter}

Don't forget to head on over to the YASC Lenten Blog to see how other volunteers celebrated their Easter! It's the last post. 

Thanks for reading!
