Easter Week News of the Burmese in High Point

During the Holy weekend, on Saturday night, there were three Burmese care/fellowship groups that met to worship God and pray.  I just happened to run into them and find them preparing to pray and sing songs of praise to God.  img_4164

Shwe Za Myint’s brother visited her this weekend.  He lives in New York City and has been in the states for about 10 months.   They are both west Poe Karen in dialect.  Shwe is the mother of Blessing Oo.  Her husband is a preacher in a refugee camp on the Thai/Burma border.  He hopes to come to NC soon.   Shwe Za Myint has training with computers and can use Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and the Word program.  She has been in the US for about one month.

On Sunday the Burmese saw the story of Easter portrayed in the FWC American service.   The Lao/Thai/Burmese joined the Americans to see a production entitled “The Gift Giver” by our own Robin Parrish and to hear a sermon by Pastor Kavanaugh entitled “Fact, Not Fiction”.  The program concluded with an invitation song by the choir and orchestra while some students painted the graphics picture below.  The church was packed, the message was clear and souls were invited into the kingdom.  img_4394-b
