Ka Hten can Repair Sewing Machines

The other day Susan Haithcock asked if Ka Hten could fix her portable sewing machine.  I took it to his house and he spent a few hours with it and had it working like a charm.   It was great to see him conduct a mini-sewing machine clinic as we returned it to Pastor Ron and Susan today.  Before Ka Hten came to America he was a tailor, manufacturing various kinds of clothes.  However he had never used a power sewing machine, always a treadle.  Now he owns an industrial grade sewing machine and is repairing and tuning up electric sewing machines which were gifts from American friends.    In December 2008 he got a full time job with Artistree in Kernersville which manufacturers pictures for Michaels.

His adult children live in High Point and attend our church.  His daughter Yu Maw and her family were some of our early arrivals.  Also his sons Bye Bye and Tin Oo and Thah Haung [They Naw] all attend our church, along with several grandchildren.
