Lao FWC Study Group

Two weeks ago we began a study group composed of two Laotians, Sam and Vanphy and two Burmese, James and Nan Lian Khup  who are learning to drive a bus.   An additional Burmese gentleman named Thang Lian Taung, will join the group next week.  Bus Study

The Lao church is looking toward the future as we plan trips and have new arrivals who need transportation to church.  Together the group is studying the North Carolina CDL License Manual and working on some sample test questions.   When the group has mastered the questions they will work with our WTM on the practical driving skills.  A couple of these Burmese men drove heavy equipment and various trucks in Malaysia before coming to America.   They see their bus studies as a means to get better jobs.

  1. This is awesome, how they’re willing to get involved in helping out the ministry. I’m sure there a lot of obstacles for them with both the language and understanding the road here, but kudos to them for being willing to learn.
