Pastor I. I.’s Message in Six Languages
On Sunday I had a chance to hear the last part of Pastor Inthava Inthisane‘s message to his congregation. He was summarizing his sermon to the church. His word was to encourage them to become solid church members through regular church attendance, living a consistent Christian life and bringing all the tithe to the church.
The amazing thing was that I could understand what he was saying!!!. Actually he was self translating, once in a Lao/Thai dialect, once in English, then it was being translated into S’gaw Karen by Philip and into Hakha Chin and Burmese by Biak Cin Thang. Six languages were being negotiated in the service!
On the left is Philip, center is Pastor I.I. and right is Biak. Above is the congregation in prayer at the conclusion of the service.
