The sultry air hung close around us. We sat on a log next to a rugged airstrip deep in a tropical highland in the Asia-Pacific Region to chat with Paiye. Off the top of his head and from the depths of his heart, the man from the Moi tribe shared the true story of Easter.
What impressed us most was not that Paiye could spontaneously retell the story so well. No, what impressed us was the joy with which he told the story. He got what the story meant. Jesus died and rose triumphant over sin and death so we could have eternal abundant life — so our joy may be full. We are His now and forever because of what He did for us. May His name be praised to the ends of the earth!
