News from the Pews at FWC

Sar Sar Oo was at Baptist Hospital this week and had surgery to straighten her legs.  During a lengthy surgery they put a titanium rod in each leg.  After some additional adjustments she had each leg put in a cast and should be able to return home by the end of the week. Perhaps within a year she will be able to walk for the first time in her life.  A big thank you to Roger Richardson with all the help he has given this family.

Thaw Dar, a new arrival from Rangoon Burma, just told me he has been hired for his first job.  He will work at High Point University in the food service area.  Thaw Dar’s previous work experience was as a sales manager before he went to the refugee camp.  By the way he said he actually saw Laura Bush when she visited the refugee camp.

Wayne Wingfield with his Home to Home Ministry continues to be a blessing to many families throughout the region.  He now has warehouses in Greensboro as well as High Point. His ministry was able to provide a vacumn cleaner for the Lae Lo Thaw family.

Mu Yah Pel and her family have moved to city housing on Anaheim Street.  They are now neighbors of Kyeh Leh and family.

The First Wesleyan Church of High Point will hold a rice drive on Sunday, October 4.  The program is called First Rice and it will be used to help feed the newest arrivals for about a week until they have a regular source of food.
