Welcome Thaw Dar

Just taking the opportunity to report several items of news on the Burmese work.   We had thirty eight Kayah individuals (6 families) arrive in High Point over the summer.  So we have been busy getting them settled in to their homes and into the church family.  God has been good to provide us with translators among this unique Burmese group.

Thaw Dar

Thaw arrived in American three weeks ago.  He lived in the capital city of Rangoon and fled his country as a political refugee.  He is proficient in English, has a British accent and is getting processed by World Relief.  He is enrolled in classes at GTCC.   I have spent a couple of Saturday mornings with him, doing some church work and letting him help me translate.   I hope you have a chance to meet him real soon.

I don’t know if there is a better feeling then to greet a new Burmese arrival in the first weeks and say, “Welcome to America”!!

Flash Forward 6/1/2011.  I just heard Thaw Dar has moved to Winston Salem where he has taken a job in food service at one of the universities.
