First Rice

Naw Marien, Saw Ku Moo Day Moo and Eh Kree Nay

On Sunday First Wesleyan Church of High Point, had a rice drive.   The missions committee of the church planned and organized an opportunity for parishioners to bring rice for distribution with new refugee families.

In the refugee camp, Dee Ray, and his family of seven, lived on 31 pounds of rice per month.  He said that at the end of the month they had just enough for each of the five children to have a little and they, as parents did not eat.

When Burmese families arrive it takes 7-12 days for them to get a regular supply of food.  First Wesleyan will help feed these families for the first few days.  The missions team plans to  provide 50 lbs of rice for arriving refugee families so that they can relax and know it will be okay, there’s food in America.
