Refugee Camps

At First Wesleyan Church we have refugees from three different states of Burma.  The majority are from the Chin and Karen states.  Most of the refugees from the Karen [Caw Rin, put accent on second syllable] state of Burma lived in refugee camps in Thailand prior to emigrating to the United States   Here is a picture of the camps closest to the Karen state, across the border in Thailand.  To learn more about the plight and status of Burmese refugees do a Google search on the subject.  As always cross check from various  sources, what you read on the web to make sure it is true.

About johnmcmurphy

Jesus is first and foremost in my life. He is above all religions, principalities and powers. In everything He must increase and I must decrease. Into the hands of Jesus, God has placed life and death, truth and purity. strength and meaning. Only in a growing understanding of the triune God, and his son Jesus can I do, breathe, exist and serve. I have a Bachelor's degree in Bible from Vennard College, a Master's in Social Science from Azusa Pacific University and a Ph. D. from Ohio State in Family Relations and Human Development. I am an ordained pastor involved in cross-cultural ministry. I am currently employed at several colleges as an instructor. If you need to get in touch with me, just leave a comment, I screen all comments and so you can leave further contact information which I will erase before it is published. -John
