Turin Preached in the Chin/Burmese Service Sunday

This weekend an entourage of Matupi visitors from Baltimore visited High Point.  Among the visitors was Turin.  He is a lay preacher that assists at his Silver Springs congregation with the Matupi Chin people.  He preached first in Burmese and then in Hahka, ministering the word to the 30 people that attend the FWC Sunday morning Burmese language worship service.   Turin first came to the United States after the 1988 Burmese student uprising.  He attended a Georgetown conference for the dissidents.   He had to flee his country to India where he eventually obtained political asylum status and could come to the United States.   He works for a Maryland tool manufacturer in their distribution department.

Others who visited were two fathers named Yung Uko and Aung Oo and Rosen.  Rosen is a boyfriend of Frosintina, one of the young ladies in our church.   Below is a picture of the group with their hosts, Peng Len, Nu Nu and Sang Bik.
