Sorry, this entry is only available in Japanese.
Hello! This is Megumix again!
An official announcement was madde that the cherry trees are in bloom in Japan!
I don’t see it around my home, though. Koubunji, Tokyo, is usually 2℃ lower than the central area of Tokyo. Maybe that’s why. I wish to go to Cherry-Blossom viewing soon!
So this time, I interviewed Kristine, the Director of EC19 Planning Committee.
For a little bit, let’s enjoy Megumix & Kristine‘s conversation.
How are you?
Thank you for taking time in your busy schedule!
So, you are the director of EC Planning Committee. How is it going?
Uh huh. When I was asked to lead the committee, there was something unresolved in my heart, so I turned it down. Yet when I talked to Setsu reflected and thought about how much EC has helped me grow in my life. I realized it’s such an important conference, and I want to offer it to everyone. I prayed, God didn’t give me a clear yes or no, but I finally resolved that I should do it, so I got his courage to face the decision. So I reconsidered and decided to say, yes.
EC19’s Theme is; “I can trust Jesus in every situation”. (working title)
So it hasn’t been confirmed yet, even so, why did you select this theme?
For returnees, the place where you live may change. But no matter where you are, you can look to God everywhere and believe you can change your way of life.
Our theme verses are from Proverbs 3:5-7
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil.”
What are your expectations for this EC?
I’d hope that the meaning of the Proverbs passage would change everyone at the core of their being. I hope that they’d dig deep into this passage, and have a great spiritual change. Even in disappointments there is hope, and I’d want them to walk forward with this in mind.
Lastly, do you have anything to say to the EC attendees?
Sometimes, you may feel you’re not a super Christian, and don’t know Bible so well. But with God, I’m glad if you have an attitude of “I’m here. Please talk to me, God.” You’re blessed not just when you’re in a good place spiritually. If you want hear from God, please join us! I want you to come with even smallest bit of hope.
Also, the prayer letter will be sent out soon. So, please read it and pray for EC19 with great expectation. It will change your life! Your prayers will prepare your heart as you participate in the EC.
I am already blessed!
Expect great things from God!
Thank you, Kristine!
What will God reveal to us?? Let’s get excited together!
