Babel-Breaker

Lao/Burmese Congregation Receiving Equipment

Lao/Burmese Congregation Receiving Equipment

This week, the Outreach Class of First Wesleyan Church delivered a special gift to our Lao/Burmese congregation.   The class, led by Jerry Farlow provided a simul-translation system that will allow 40 to 50 people to listen to the services as they are being simultaneously translated into their own languages.  This is truly a Babel-Breaker.

Since the curse of multi-languages, as a result of the prideful sin in man in building the tower of Babel, it has been hard to communicate.   Pastor Inthava has preached each Sunday in a Lao/Thai dialect.  That was translated into Karen and then further translated into Burmese.   God has given some people the gift of learning languages easily, they have become our translaters.   Others are studying hard to learn English.  But now the preaching of the Word can go forward with communication in the heart language of our people.    Praise the Lord from whom all blessings flow.  Thank you Outreach class for once again ministering to those in need.
