Teach me to make Toast.

It really is just simple little things that you can do to bless our Burmese friends.   The other day I helped a friend set up a gmail account so that he can contact his girlfriend in Thailand.  Kay had a girl ask to show her how to make toast.  Recently we took some of our Burmese friends for a ride to see Christmas lights.   There are many simple things we take for granted that are matters of inquiry by the Burmese.  For instance, when does the tenant need to take care of something and when is it the landlord’s responsibility?  What is the smartest way to call long distance to Burma or Thailand?

Do you have a passion for gardening?  You need to meet Nu Nu or Peng Len.   Do you like to do knitting or needle work?  Visit with Dawt Hlei Tial.  Are you pretty good at selecting reliable used cars?  You are needed.   Can you write a good story?  You need to capture stories for this blog’s life stories category.  Do you want to do missions?  Visit Little Burma (the William and Mary Apartments).  Can you drive a car?  Take a family to the store or to do laundry.   There are many opportunities, it’s easy, it’s fun, it’s fruitful, it’s fulfilling!
