News From Burma

April 9, 2018

Hello FBC and KFBC friends

We have settled in to living and teaching at the Christian Education Center (CEC), Dawei

Some of us feel the weather is very hot. However, I have finally thawed out from MN winter. Various shades of green vegetation is everywhere and flowers are blooming in brilliant colors. Clothes are drying in the sun on the line outside the back door of the guesthouse

We started teaching on Friday after Opening Ceremony. We taught Saturday as well because of getting a late start. Class sizes started small, but more students have arrived. Hnin Nu has 59 (6th and 7th grade) students which is the largest class. All classes are smaller than last year. We can have time for more student participation. Speaking individually is not part of instruction in schools in Myanmar. Students are already becoming comfortable with speaking to the class. Ready and Aye Aye are enjoying their classes and everyone is trying out new teaching methods

A special visitor came for a short time. You all know him as Pastor Saul Lu. He arranged for a group photo of all students and staff.  Have you already seen it on Facebook

Students and teachers are eating very well! Every meal includes many dishes of fresh and steamed vegetables, a soup, pork or chicken or fish, white rice of course, and fresh mango, papaya, and pineapple.

Hser Hser Say and Lwe Sree have told me many times how much they miss GIri.

Thank you for your continued prayers. We couldn’t do this without your support.

Blessings from Cecilia and the Dawei Mission Team
