Easter is a big deal, and people in El Salvador know it! There are family celebrations and parades. Kids even get a week off school! How cool is that? Many kids in El Salvador who are poor face big challenges and sometimes feel hopeless. So when they learn the true meaning of Easter — Jesus’ resurrection — it gives them hope. You can pray for those kids while you make this minigarden to remember Jesus’ resurrection. 

Plant 7-10 days before Easter day for best grass growth! 

“Easter is a week of love.”

“I am both happy and sad at Easter. I am sad because Jesus suffered so much for my sake, but I am happy because at the end He gave me the hope of heaven.”
