High Point Burmese Community Christmas Celebration

img_3670Yesterday the Burmese community of High Point hosted a Christmas celebration.   Saw Philip, Saw Klo Say, Ko Aung Htun and Saw Nyein Aung from our congregation helped to organize the program.  Christian greetings were given, Scripture was shared, and a sermon from a guest preacher was heard.  img_36181There were delegations from Chapel Hill, Durham, Greensboro as well as Buddhist participants.  The group used the facilities of a local Baptist church.  The Burmese had prepared a wonderful chicken and fried rice dinner, arranged a drawing for door prizes and took care to greet each person who arrived.  Here is a video clip of a guest song.
