Spring Break Redefined
Our friends at Faith Alive are enjoying their four day Easter weekend break. Except for a few emergency personnel, the staff is resting and spending time with friends and family. It's a well-deserved break after weeks of hard work amidst a tense calm in the Jos area.
Elim Elementary School students and teachers generally take a spring break, but I think this year's is longer than normal. They'll resume again at the beginning of May. While major violence has been at bay for almost a month, there have been pockets of small violence. One day headmistress Kate said she was at school and they heard gunshots at nearby Jos Polytechnic.
Yes, a rest will be good for everyone.
