Guest Preacher from Karen State Last Sunday

Last Sunday we had a special treat in our Lao worship service.   We had Maung Sein, a veteran preacher (25 years) from the Karen state of Burma fill the pulpit.   He preached in Karen and Burmese and our Lao folks were gracious to forego translation in Lao.

He and his wife were visiting High Point from Atlanta, Georgia.  Here is a picture of him and his wife on the platform with Pastor Inthava and our translators, Philip Saw and Bah Blue. Maung Sein is the uncle of three of our parishioners:  Ray Wah, Ma Nay and Kyawesue.   Maung Seing means Diamond in Karen and his wife’s name is Tha Wee (Singer).  They have three teenage children.  They have been in the United States for about a month.
