Chin/Burmese group is moving forward

It is with bittersweet emotion I share this post.   My friends from the Chin state of Myanmar who have been worshipping in our facility have decided to launch out on a new chapter and will be relocating to another facility in town.   I remember being present in the summer of 2008 when the root congregation met in a home on Wise street under the leadership of Biak to organize a High Point fellowship.   I am happy for the leadership and independence shown by this group but I am in pain as I think about not seeing them every Sunday in their exuberant worship of our God. Until this fall, for about a year I had the privilege of preaching on a monthly basis in this congregation.   Below is a picture of a commissioning in the 10:30am American service and prayer led by Pastor Chan.  Pray for this group to grow strong in their walk with the Lord.  Interestingly the High Point area has two other congregations that are offshoots from FWC and this fellowship.  One is a Kachin congregation led by Pastor Knaw Bawk and another is a Mizo Chin group led by Vena.
