Go Deeper

There is a vitality and robust spirit on Sunday mornings in our ESL classrooms and in the Lao congregation.  The place is burgeoning with people.   Old faces are returning and new people and making their way to be a part of the High Point Southeast Asian ministries.    My prayer is that we might see the folks go deeper in their commitment to the Lord.   Some have not yet made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ.

Purdue Farms is hiring any American or refugee needing work at this time, so with available jobs, folks are beginning to move ahead with new things.      Thah Naung has dug out the clay and replaced it with compost in order to create a bed for a garden.   Eh K’lu is pursuing his GED at GTCC at this time.   Biak and Ap Ar have announced they are expecting a child in five months.  Thang Tlang is working on getting his drivers license.    Many of the Burmese are stopping to look at the cars for sale along the road.  Some are looking for a house where they can have a yard and better accommodate their family.

During ESL studies last Sunday, Kay had the class go to the store.  They opened a drug store, a hardware store and grocery store and using play money made purchases at the stores.  They learned the names and values of currency and did some of the simple math in making a purchase.
