Wednesday night the Thakbal’s threw a birthday bash for Frosintina. In celebration of her 19th birthday and their two year anniversary of their arrival in America they had a cook-out. Peng Len and Nu Nu spent all day cooking and preparing. There were about 25 Chin and Kachin in attendance. The evening began with prayer, a song, greetings by Biak, a salvation challenge by Peng Len, a few words by myself and a sermon by Es Lu Lu. Then we had food. I met two new Mizo Chin men at the party and a cousin of Frosintina, Rosen, drove down from Baltimore, MD to help celebrate.
