|Religious films are popular during Peru's Holy Week.|
Sadly "Semana Santa" is increasingly becoming more comercialized and worldly. When we first arrived in Peru there were no bunny rabbits or easter eggs. Today, the stores are filled with candies, rabbits and stuffed animals. America's idea of Easter is taking over the traditions of the past. If people don't hear the true message of Christ now with all of the religious traditions how will they hear it in the future when all we have left are pastel colored eggs and a fluffy rabbit?
Tomorrow we'll be showing an evangelistic film at our church. We'll be doing our best to spread the good news of Resurrection Day. I'm glad we serve a Risen Savior!
