Resurrection Day With Gospel For Africa In Côté d’Ivoire, West Africa!

Children waiting to search for hidden gifts.

This year we celebrated Resurrection Day (Easter) by inviting people from the surrounding area asking them to bring their children for a hidden gift hunt. We also served food and drinks to everyone present. Noelle Jones and her diligent helpers organized the event.

The place was packed and the children had a wonderful time.

For the majority of the children this was the first time they have experienced a Resurrection Day celebration like this. A large number of them come from Muslim households. We were so happy that their parents agreed to bring them.

Every child received a gift and balloons tied in the shape off a cross.


Listening to the Gospel Message. Many came to faith in Christ on this day.

The gospel message was delivered to everyone present and many came to faith in Christ Jesus. Children and adults raised their hands in agreement that they wanted to repent, believe and follow our Lord and Savior.

There is a great hunger for the Word of God all around us. When we speak about Jesus the old and young alike want to hear every word, because it gives them hope of a better future now in this poverty stricken country and eternal life with Jesus Christ.

The children produced a play about the resurrection of Jesus Christ. They sang songs about His love and majesty, and played their hearts out on the drums. It was a fantastic time in the Lord for all who attended.
