Karen Send-off Celebration

Posted by on Oct 20, 2013 in Ministry Blog | 0 comments

It was a special treat to fellowship with our Karen friends this evening. Eh Htoo and Mu kPaw invited us to a special send-off celebration that they put together to thank us for our involvement with the Karen community in Allentown. We packed out Eh Htoo’s home and appreciate the hospitality shown by him and his wife Say Ku Paw.

Brian shared a message from Scripture, with a very clear explanation of missions and the need to learn about and share Jesus Christ with others. Mu kPaw, Eh Htoo, and Yar Kaw all shared memories and words of encouragement and thanks. Mu kPaw and Lily sang, followed by Ku Dah and Aw Paung. Then we all enjoyed some good Karen and Thai food. They surprised us with a special offering and two traditional Karen bags to use in our ministry.

We will greatly miss all of our Karen friends here in the US and are greatly for the time that God gave us to learn from each other. I feel like our investment is so small in light of the warm friendship that we have enjoyed, and look forward to the many new Karen friends that The Lord will give us on the other side of the world.
