Just a Couple of Landmarks

Eh Le Say is a young father in our church who has just learned to drive and bought a car.  His supervisor at work is taking her team to Outback for dinner.  He asked me yesterday how to get to Outback.  So while we were running errands I drove him past the restaurant.  I asked him, how did he find his way through the jungles of Burma.  He said that he would look at “this mountain” and “that river” and know which way to go.

Last August, Eh Le Say and his wife brought her refugee sister Than Hla, who is a widow, along with her sons to High Point from Austin, TX.  With the larger family size they have had to relocate to a larger house.  They have moved but still had not gotten the natural gas turned on.  Last night after work we began the process of application for gas service.    Than Hla has recently taken a job on the graveyard shift at Purdue Farms in Rockingham.

As friends of the Burmese we just need to give them a little help to see the Triad mountains and rivers and they will find their own way (I John 4:7-12).
