Mong Arrivals in High Point

Char Lay Nay Taw Mon and Ni Ong Wo Na brought their wives and families to the United States in the last month.  They are of the Mong (or Hmong) people group of Burma.  This group of people live in the western part of Burma just south of the Karen and Karenni region, close to the delta region.  Others of this displaced population group reside in China, Laos, and Thailand.  They speak Mong, Thai, and Burmese.

Here in High Point, they live in “little Burma”, the apartment buildings at the corner of Montlieu and Hamilton.  Here is a picture of the two families and we would like to say welcome to America!

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
