Birthday Girl with her mother, Nu Nu

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 IMG_5421by 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.
