Sunday Bible Dedication

Today our church learned about Saw Ler Phaw‘s work on translating the Bible.  Saw Ler Phaw and his family are new Karenni Burmese arrivals.   After news about a Bible distribution and a dedicatory prayer by Pastor Paul Coates, Hla May Pray read one of the Sunday morning scripture lessons from the new Bible.   Thae Rey received a symbolic Bible on behalf of 350 Karenni Burmese who live in Lumberton, NC.

Here is a copy of a handout distributed to the First Wesleyan Church congregation.

Jesus is first and foremost in my life. He is above all religions, principalities and powers. In everything He must increase and I must decrease. Into the hands of Jesus, God has placed life and death, truth and purity. strength and meaning. Only in a growing understanding of the triune God, and his son Jesus can I do, breathe, exist and serve.
