Sunday School Around the World: Burma (Myanmar)
A Christian family in Burma (Myanmar) has taken in several children whose parents have abandoned them. Like many people in Myanmar, some of the children had never heard about Jesus. The video shows them singing a Sunday school song they learned in their new home.
The words to the song say:
“We are like the stars created by God which should shine for others. Let’s dedicate and sacrifice our ability in order to give the light of the Lord to others…..let’s shine….”
Thanaka is a paste made from tree bark. It is also sold in powder form. Many women and children in Burma wear thanaka on their faces. Thanaka prevents sunburn and keeps the skin cool. It is also used as makeup. Some people apply it on their faces in pretty patterns. Which child is wearing thanaka in the video?
