Scripture Reading: Luke 19:28 – 40
As Christ entered Jerusalem, the people celebrated him as their king. Jesus told the Pharisees that if the people had been silent, the rocks would cry out with worship instead! This week, consider gathering stones and decorating them with the words of this week’s memory verse. As you make your way through Holy Week, these stones will provide a constant reminder that Jesus is worthy of praise!
Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven, and glory in the highest heaven!
“Walk for Water”
Map out a course similar to the distance that a family in Ghana, Malawi or Zambia might have to walk to collect water (we recommend between 2 and 12 miles). Charge an entrance fee for participants to Walk for Water, donating proceeds to Wells of Salvation. Provide a bonus for anyone who completes the walk while carrying a full bucket of water.
In Ghana, more than 25% of females over age 15 have not learned to read or write.

Girls like Asana Awudu are working hard to earn an education, but without safe water or a safe school building, they face many challenges.
Christ Our King, thank you for coming into the world and dying for us on the cross. Thank you for the Resurrection and for the hope of everlasting life. You told us in Matthew 25:40, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” This Holy Week and throughout our lives, teach us to honor you as our King by serving your beloved poor around the world. Amen.
