Burmese Fellowship

A few weeks ago, we had a fellowship at our church with a special group of people.  Recently, many refugees from Burma (now called Myanmar) moved to Center, and they have started meeting as a congregation at the chapel in our church on Sunday afternoons.  Some of them have started coming to our Sunday school & church services.  While some of them understand English & speak it fairly well, some do not.  But you can still sense that we all serve the same wonderful God!  Many of them sang special songs for us (in their native language, of course).  We had a great time listening to them sing & watching them worship in such a sincere way.  And we truly enjoyed trying their food & I think they enjoyed trying ours too. :)

Here are some of the children singing.  
They were definitely the highlight of the evening!
The smallest two children were only 2 & 3 years old...
and they knew the words & sang with such heart!
These are some other groups singing for us...

We had quite a crowd!
I loved how they wore some of their native clothing.
This man gave his testimony about how he recently became
a Christian after being a Buddhist for most of his life.

The Burmese asked some of our people to get up and
sing for them.
We look forward to our next fellowship together.
