Expanding the Stakes
These weeks have been busy at my work but when I have checked in with the Burmese community of High Point I see an enlarging of vision, parameters and companions. So here are some notes:
We are working with the FWC Missions committee to have a team help a couple of Burmese families plant gardens on March 7, stay tuned for more information.
Amaung, Eh Le Say and Thang Tlang are buying cars. We have about 12 people with permits that need driving time so that they can prepare to take the driving tests. Two are scheduled for driving tests tommorrow. Ap Ar and Thang Tlang recently passed their written tests.
Two new families arrived in High Point in the last several weeks. One a family of seven live near Padoh and Toe Kyi’s family.
The ESL class helped about 55 people to use personal calculators and learn/review how to fill out a check and keep a transaction log. Many of the Burmese are paying $125-$150 to have their taxes prepared, I am hoping we can change this for next year.
