Reno we’re glad your Here!

Reno didn’t come on my radar until a month after he arrived.  Then I just found out in the last week, he is not a single adult Karenni arrival but came with his whole family.  Reno, a believer, with his family, were the earliest Karenni (or Kayah) arrivals in High Point.   He speaks fluent English.  The reason I didn’t see him right away was because he was temporarily placed with a Buddhist family near Green Street Baptist Church.   After two weeks the family of Reno moved into the Stuart Apartments (corner of Hamilton and Montlieu, formerly called William and Mary Apts).   Reno has a job with Artistree (Michael’s Framing Division) in Kernersville.   The family are regular attenders at First Wesleyan.  Here is a picture of this family:

About johnmcmurphy

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
