This past week, there was a local celebration for the 70th birthday of the Rinpoche pictured above. At all the entrances of our town, there were special welcome banners put up like the ones below. We are told that this particular Rinpoche is the powerful leader of one of the Tibetan Buddhist sects.
Thousands of Tibetans attended to enjoy the music hosted by a nearby monastery!
Some of the musicians were actually pretty good as you will hear below.
This poor guy wore himself out which brought some laughs to many in the crowd! You have to give him credit though, he gave it all he had!
Three people from our church went to give out hundreds of pieces of literature. As a result, three visitors came to our service! One of the visitors is named Gawa, the monk pictured below. He is a Khampa Tibetan and really enjoyed the Bible teaching. He said this is the first time he has met anyone who could explain the teachings of Christianity! He wants to come again next week too!
