Alen Makitan, High Point Resident

This week I met Alen Makitan.  He is a student at Chapel Hill and is serving this summer as an intern at World Relief in High Point.  Alen said that when he interviewed with Mark at World Relief he told Mark that he was originally from Bosnia and arrived with his family as a small child.

Alen had to go back to his mother to find out how he got to America.   She told him that they came through  World Relief of High Point about 16 years ago.  Now Alen a Bosnian refugee is helping to resettle Burmese refugees.  Thank you Alen for being willing to serve.

I have and will be sharing this story with the parents of young children arriving these days from Burma.   In 15-20 years we will see many fine young people contributing to America, a country of emigrees!
