Those Easter 'texts'

Christians in Kenya were busy texting about the Resurrection over the Easter weekend, said some Kenyan church leaders.

Of the country's 40 million people, nearly 20 million have mobile phones. Some texts were taken from Scripture, while others were more creative, such as: "If you have Jesus' number, call and tell him not to go to Jerusalem. There are people who want to crucify him. I do not have airtime to call him now."
