Little Things You Can do help

1.  Many are buying cars with cassette players.   They know hymn tunes, if you have old cassettes to donate to the “new” car owners let me know with a comment.

2.  If you can provide a day job for a refugee it would meet a great need.   Usually we pay $7 to $8 an hour and will need to help with transportation.  Some of these folks would benefit greatly from learning new work skills.

3.  Offer to help provide rides to church on Sunday.  Even if you can only help one direction, it would be a blessing.

4.   Plan to pray regularly for our ministry efforts and direction.

Bigger Things you can do to help

1.  Become a friend of a Burmese family.  If you as an American would visit a Burmese family once a month it would make a tremendous difference.   During this visit you can meet them, call them by name, welcome them to our land and just love them.  We have over thirty Burmese/English interpreters in the congregation you can call on your cell if you can’t communicate.

2.  Volunteer to help with occasional game nights, trips and fellowship times organized by our Lao resettlement team.

Extreme Ministry-right here in High Point

1.  Teach a Burmese person how to drive.  Savy, Eh K’lu, Frosintina, Biak and Nan Lian Khup need driving lessons.  They have their learner’s permit.  If you just take them to our big church parking lot and let them practice turns, signals and driving straight lines, it would be helpful.

2.  Share a skill or hobby you like with a Burmese individual.   I have met people who like to fish, listen to music, play guitar, travel, garden, sew and knit.

3.  Take a Burmese family on a day trip the mountains, the zoo or the lake, we have such beautiful country here in NC.
