Look at the Size of that Cow!

A few months ago Van Lian and Stiven traveled with me to Amish country.  We had passed many fields with beef cattle on the trip.   But then Van Lian saw a dairy cow and was amazed at the size of its udder.  I explained to him that one cow would give several gallons of milk a day.   Van Lian is a Chin province father, who is a university graduate.  He has a degree in Forestry.  He has fled his country of Burma coming ahead of his family who he hopes to have join him shortly.    

Stiven worked for an electrical contractor in Kuala Lampher, the capital of Malaysia for several years as he waited to emigrate to America.   Stiven is also from the Chin province of Burma.  His father is an itinerate evangelist in Burma who continues to preach the word.   Stiven and Lian have “starter” jobs and will be able to work as they improve their English skills.  

Stiven is next to my wife Kay in this picture.  The rest of the gentlemen are Eh Htoo, Saw Tah Oo, Eh Lay Kler, Naing Naing (rear) and Eh Htoo Say (front).  Everybody in the picture now have jobs!
