Ler Phaw helped with Bible translation

Sunday I talked with JB, a missionary involved in Bible translation work.   JB has just finished translating the Bible into the Karenni language for the Kayah people.   He has been completing the project stateside, living right here in the Triad.  In a couple of weeks he will be returning to Southeast Asia

His key assistant for this project was a refugee who has now resettled in High Point.  Saw Ler Phaw arrived last week and lives in an apartment on Ardale.  He speaks English, Karen, Karenni, Burmese and Thai.  The Thai is important because Pastor I.I. is fluent in Thai.   Attached is a picture of his family along with Ma Nay Htun their neighbor.  Ma Nay Htun and her husband, Be Aye have been showing these new arrivals the ropes.

Jesus is first and foremost in my life. He is above all religions, principalities and powers. In everything He must increase and I must decrease. Into the hands of Jesus, God has placed life and death, truth and purity. strength and meaning. Only in a growing understanding of the triune God, and his son Jesus can I do, breathe, exist and serve. I have a Bachelor's degree in Bible from Vennard College, a Master's in Social Science from Azusa Pacific University and a Ph. D. from Ohio State in Family Relations and Human Development. I am an ordained pastor involved in cross-cultural ministry. I am currently employed at several colleges as an instructor. If you need to get in touch with me, just leave a comment, I screen all comments and so you can leave further contact information which I will erase before it is published. -John
