Karen and Burmese Adventist Refugees and Immigrants to Hold First Division-wide Convention
Karen and Burmese Adventist refugees and immigrants will hold their first-ever division-wide convention, July 2-5, in Syracuse, N.Y. During the past decade thousands of Adventist refugees and immigrants from the Asian country of Myanmar (formerly Burma), many of whom were persecuted, have been resettled to start new lives in North America. They are scattered in almost every state and province of NAD. Many of these believers trace their Adventist heritage back to missionaries like Eric B. Hare.
The convention will be held in the Karen language with translation to Burmese and English. Speakers will include Ernest Castillo, Melvin Santos, Scott Griswold, and others. All Karen, Zomi and other Burmese people are invited to attend, as well as anyone who is involved in ministry to them or is interested in these people groups.
