    THank you everyone. I went and visited there today. I was the only non-Laotian person there, so it was a bit awkward at first. Everyone was very kind. I spoke to the monk who was there. He said they are very new and want to support the practice of the Laotian community, as well as educate newcomers on Buddhism. he said their emphasis for now is the 5 precepts.

    They gave me a booklet to read. They told me they are all about each persons personal growth. And in following the precepts to find a way to follow them that makes me happy and doesn't cause suffering. So it was a nice experience. I hope to go back this week while on my vacation.
