You Really Ought to Come Hear This Guy .....

His name is Steve Gumaer, co-founder of Partners Relief & Development, and he is on the road in the United States, on a journey that includes a stop in West Texas this weekend.

Steve will be speaking at
First Presbyterian Church of Midland, Sunday, May 4, at both the 8:15 and 11:00 a.m. services. Steve promises to paint a picture of the people he works with who are vulnerable and abused, yet a powerful symbol of faith, real freedom, and a willingness to live out the words of Christ, not just talk about them. Those people are refugees from the atrocities committed by the Army of Burma (Myanmar) against various ethnic groups in that troubled country, including the Karen, the Chin, the Shan, and others.

It's not only the story of a persecuted people, but a persecuted church ..... and I hope you can attend.
