Philip asked the Ethiopian eunuch, “Do you understand what you are reading?” - Acts 8:30 (NIV)
In 1965, I was in a special reading class to develop my comprehension skills. When I walked into the class on the first day, my immediate thought was, I'm stupid, because I would be sitting at a table with other people my peers had called “stupid.”
Acts 8:30-31 reminds me...
Wisdom is a fountain oflife to one who has it(Prov. 16:22, nrsv).

Seeing young people, both men and women, participate in and write their testimonies at The Upper Room daily devotional writers’ workshop in Yangon, 2019, has been a highlight for me. The event and testimonies led to the publication of the first Lenten devotional in the Myanmar language. I truly believe that through The Upper Room ministry, the Lord will continue to equip people in Myanmar to grow and to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
