Shepherds

First Wesleyan Church (FWC) is serious about security.   On the ground level of our church a number of men volunteer each week to keep the premises and people safe.  Upstairs on our FWC ethnic wing under the direction of Jim Sayam, we have various Burmese and Lao gentlemen providing security each week.  Pictured here are Maung Ei and Eh Htoo, who were shepherds several weeks ago.  Notice on Maung Ei’s lapel a name tag.  This is part of a security system for all our children.  His tag gives identity to allow him to pick up his children from their meeting room at the end of the morning services.

Eh Htoo pictured on the right, is usually the photographer for this blog.  I give him my camera on Sunday morning and he captures pictures.  He started taking pictures for me when we took a road trip to West Virginia a few years ago.  Last week he caught this picture of his nephew.

  His nephew is wearing tha na kah cream.  This natural derivative from the bark of the tamarind tree is good for the complexion, a coolant from excessive heat,  a first aid for a minor abrasion, a protective from sunburn and in the case of women adds to their allure.
