At the same time that our national unemployment rates are growing, I can report that all of the Chin men attending our church have found jobs. To God be the glory for what He has done, this is nothing short of a miracle. Among the Karen Burmese two men who had not yet gotten steady work, will start training next week. That leaves Chaw White, I ask you to join with me in earnest prayer that he might find a steady job.
Yesterday I traveled to Rockingham to meet Eh K’lu and help him to get his green card. We had to go the Dept of Homeland Security in Charlotte because he had missed a prior appointment for fingerprinting. Now he has that resolved and will be processed toward getting his green card. When the refugees first come they get an official temprary letter stating they were approved by our state department as refugees. After about a year the arrival has to begin work in getting their green card. Every Triad Burmese has to make a trek to offices in Charlotte where they are processed with fingerprinting, photographs and documentation.
