News from the Burmese part of FWC

Exciting things are happening among the Burmese folks who attend First Wesleyan Church of High Point.  Sang Awi, La Zwang and Sai Pu have begun working the night shift at the Rockingham chicken packing plant.  Eh K’lu along with my Laos neighbor, Kit are working on their GED’s at Guilford Technical Community College.   Several of our couples are expecting babies:  Biak and Ap Ar; Kyeh Leh [Chay Lay] and Ku Ku; Eh Le Say and Mu Nai.  Nyein and Sharon are house shopping, learning all the ins and outs of making this important decision.

Aung Mo and Eh K’lu are now licensed drivers with their own cars.  Two Christian Burmese cell groups are meeting each Saturday night.  Thah Way who broke his leg a few weeks ago has had both his long time deformed legs straightened and was sent home in two leg casts from Baptist hospital.

I believe God is anointing a people among our Burmese to not only adjust to life together but to become a strong witness of God’s love and provision for all people.   Pray for the Burmese of High Point and the world.
