“He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.” – John 20:6

In the midst of the confusion and disappointment of life, Jesus’ resurrection stands as a powerful witness to God’s fidelity and love that conquers sin and death.

Sadao Watanabe, Resurrection

Let this Easter be a reminder of the eternal promise fulfilled—a promise of redemption, forgiveness, and boundless love. May the story of the Resurrection fill our hearts with gratitude and our souls with peace.

As we gather with loved ones, let us embrace the joy of this season. Whether near or far, may the blessings of Easter surround you, bringing renewal, hope, and the warmth of God’s love into your life.

Wishing you and your family a blessed and Happy Easter!
