Jesus is the Reason for the Season for a man and the Burmese of High Point

I wanted to give you an update on how God is working with the Burmese.   A couple of nights ago I got a call from Thaw Dar telling me about a Karen Burmese fellow in town who was extremely sick, probably with pneumonia.   Now this fellow has been here about 4 years and has been using up all his earnings buying alcohol.    I talked to Klo Say and we asked Pastor Sitt Lin to go by to pray with this man.  The next morning Sitt Lin stopped in at this man’s apartment and not only prayed for his physical healing but after witnessing, led this man in the sinners prayer for salvation.

After returning home Pastor Sitt Lin had a dream about this man that night that he was drinking dirty water.  His friends were having him drink dirty water.  The following day after leading his daily discipleship/evangelism class he took one of the students with him for practical witnessing with this baby Christian.  Sitt Lin told the man his dream and the man confessed that his friends had come and had had a couple of drinks of alcohol.  Pastor Sitt Lin worked with him about how he was a new creature in Christ, old things were passed away.  He encouraged him to be strong when his friends try to tempt him in the future.  As they witnessed to this man the evangelism “student” was very moved with this practical evangelism and is motivated to be a witness for Christ.   This student is Steve Thavone’s (Lao) wife, Mimi (a Burmese speaking lady).
