News from the Community

We had some snow, about an inch.  So the schools closed and some of the businesses closed for the day.   Over the last six months several of the new Burmese arrivals had asked me when it was going to snow.   This morning my friend Biak called and was joyous about this, his first time to see snow.

Several FWC families have donated cars to the church.  Pastor Inthava and I have been helping to place these cars and prepare the families to title, insure and drive the vehicles.   This week the Peng Len Thak Bal family were the recipients of a 1995 Ford Windstar van.  It was a joyous time getting the car insured, titled and tagged.  Driving tests are planned for tomorrow.    Whenever a Burmese person gets in a new car (to them), I like to get together with them and pray a prayer of dedication.  With the Thak Bal’s we had Al Ream lead us in a family prayer of dedication.  God is so good!   His blessings are beyond words.
