Hey everybody, hope you guys are excited for Easter Sunday! As you guys know, this week is the last week before Easter Sunday, so there is one thing I want to encourage you guys to do. Yesterday, my Pastor challenged the church to fast and meditate on Christ, so I want to encourage you guys to do the same. For me, this is especially important because I will be going on a short-term missions trip to Over the Rhine in Cincinnati, Ohio. In any missions trip or evangelism, Christ needs to be at the center of our lives. We need to be usable by God in order to do His work. I have to admit, I've been spending a lot more time on the unnecessary things (games, anime, manga, etc.) instead of praying and reading the Word. I really need to spend this week earnestly seeking God and fast those things that suck up so much of my time. And I don't want this week to be the only week I spend time with God; I hope that by seeking God this week, that it will be something that I will do the following week, the next week, and the next. And I hope you guys have this kind of desire as well; that we think about God's amazing love for us this week, and really pray with a heart of gratitude. I want to love Christ more than I do now!

So anywho, I just wanted to write this topic to encourage you guys to think of Christ, no matter what is going on in your life. Make this week about Him.

And on a side note, please pray for me as I am training for the missions trip. Hope that you guys can cover me and the team as we prepare for OTR in Ohio. Thanks
