Anna Mu had a Birthday

IMG_4615On Labor Day, Nyein and Sharon announced a birthday party and open house to be held at 3:00 PM.   Anna, their daughter, is celebrating her 7th birthday and the family is rejoicing in the Lord for the good home He has allowed them to buy.  The festivities started with singing, scripture reading, prayer and a duet.  Moo Whaa led the service.   Then Pastor I.I. gave a short message.   Interestingly the translator was a former neighbor of Nyein.  Then Pastor Inthava offered a prayer of dedication and I was privileged to pray a blessing for Anna.  Again the pictures tell the story best.
