    They smiled as he acted out the scene of Moses at the burning bush. By turning his body, making small changes in his facial expressions and looking up or down, he became Moses and God in turn. His audience was captivated by the story.

    When he paraphrased what Moses said to the Lord, the Thais laughed in the ... Read More
