High Point Relatives in New York
Last week I met the Cung Hlo family, who have settled in Syracuse, New York. This father was a farmer in the upstate Chin region of Burma (see map) prior to fleeing his home after persecution by the ruling military junta. His family was resettled by a secular relief agency in Syracuse (upstate, New York). They attend the Lyncourt Wesleyan Church.
It turns out that the family is Mateipi and are from the same village as Hlamay who attends the First Wesleyan Church of High Point. Their oldest daughter married a Mateipi man since arriving in the United States and they have a new baby. Their second oldest daughter, Nu Nu, has the same name as Peng Len’s wife (also parishioners at our High Point church). Several of the younger children were at school on the day of this photo. Pray for the Burmese of New York.
