The rest of the Stories

img_3454aThis is an update on some posts from the last two months.   Than Hla [Thon La] is the Burmese widow that arrived in Austin, TX about 4 months ago.  Her sister and brother-in-law (Eh Le Say) lived here.   You can read more about that on this link to the previous post.  Than Hla’s and her two boys live with her sisters family now in the William and Mary apartments on Hamilton Street.  The younger son (Sa Nay Maung Maung) is going to Northwood Elementary and the older son (Naing Soe), is going to the NewComers school.   Than Hla plans to start attending GTCC next term where she will study ESL.  They are actively involved at our church.

Be sure and check out the pictures Carolyn Winslow sent me about the party she held for the girls a few weeks ago.

The other story I would like to update is the arrival of Biak’s wife.   Her name is Dawt Thar Par but she says just call her “Ap Ar”.  She has been here about a week.   They have spent this first week getting resettled into a different apartment. They now live in the William and Mary apartments.   Biak has a regular job at a manufacturing plant in Kernersville on the night shift.  He is also the leader of the fast growing Burmese children’s Sunday school class at First Wesleyan Church.biak-and-his-wife-dawt-other-burmese-class-photos-002
