Three southeast Asian services

This morning I stopped in briefly at the beginning of our three ethnic services that occur simultaneously with the American service at First Wesleyan.  The Laotians are the flagship congregation, providing leadership and direction for our two Burmese congregations.     The Lao service was leading off with a Scripture reading. 

The Karen Burmese were in their new quarters, large enough to accommodate this the largest of our ethnic congregations.   They led off with prayer.

The third service is our Chin Burmese service.  They usually are well underway by 10:15 but had a later start because of other Sunday AM programming.

    I’m an ESL Teacher, my students are Burma and Thailand families and their children that have settled in Rockingham, NC. I would appriciate any advice you could give me. Since High Point is not that far from here, I would love an opportunity for a meeting to speak with you to help me better understand my students and their specific needs.
    Thank you. Susie Jordan
