Myanmar Blog (Day 1-Prep)

I am heading to Myanmar (Burma) on March 26th with two of my dudes from Vintage (Rob and Sean). We will be on mission coaching & playing basketball with the Burmese National Teams as well as helping out local missionaries. This will be my second trip to Myanmar with the same ministry. Here is a pic of my brother and I on the trip.

I have decided to keep a short daily blog of my pre-trip prep, actual journey, and post-reflections. Here we go...

Day 1 (26 days till Myanmar)
Spiritual - We had an amazing day at Vintage today. Half of our worship time was devoted to prayer. After Paul gave a charge to the church at Ephesus, he was led to prayer (Acts 20:31). After being challenged by our "Be the Church" series in Acts, I have been overwhelmed by the need around the world. Christ has mandated for us to be His witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8). Instead of strategy and planning, God is calling me and our church to a season of prayer. Stay tuned.

Physical (need to lose atleast 10lbs this month) - Weights (30min) CrossTrainer (30min) Treadmill (10min) this morning. + i ate no junk food today. Gotta start somewhere.

Myanmar Fact - Area 676,577 sq.km. Basin and delta of the Irrawaddy River ringed by a horseshoe of high mountains that isolates the country from India, China and Thailand.
