Jelly Bellies and Faithful Hearts

Easter is always a special time at the Have Faith Haiti Mission – and not just because of the new spring outfits generously donated by individual sponsors. It’s a celebration of faith and renewal, of community and coming together.

Let’s start with a little fashion show, brought to you by Widley learning how to put on a tie:

Best dressed in their Easter best (but sorry, no bonnets!)

They shared a special moment releasing balloons to heaven, in remembrance of those loved and lost.

So much Easter basket fun, with thanks especially to Beaumont Health for the teddy bears, and beautiful greeting cards in Kreyol from Cardz for Kidz.

These baskets belong to our newest additions, and are their first Easter baskets.

And then the hunt began–for 400 eggs, that is. Yes. 400! Ready, set, go….

May we all be as excited as this happy bunny Manes (even before any sugar!)

Josue and Bianka found the golden eggs and were later treated to ice cream at Sugar Rush, an ice cream parlor and candy store in Pétionville, a suburb of Port-au-Prince where Have Faith Haiti is located. They also showed off their moves as they posed just like the mannequins in nearby store windows.

But perhaps what they will remember the most is the Jelly Belly challenge. Weird and gross, or sweet and delicious? Who knows! But you quickly get a good idea of how they fared once you watch these answers to li bon?

Can you tell who got coconut and who got spoiled milk?
