Blessings among the Burmese

We prayed for Chaw White to find a job last week and he has started working for a different company on a trial basis this week.  It may turn into a 40 hour a week job for him.

The new header on the blog is from the church picnic at City Lake Park in Jamestown.   About 50 Burmese attended the event along with the anglo church family.

A couple of the Burmese are using their computers to type in Burmese.   They have to use  a keyboard cheat sheet and a special font to create their documents.

The rice drive continues to receive residual rice donations.   We should see the total for the drive go over 1500 pounds.

I received a note from a missionary who lives in Greensboro and has worked with the Burmese for over 20 years.   I look forward to setting down for a visit with him.

This year will mark the second time we have encouraged and helped some of the Burmese to attend the First Wesleyan Church costume carnival.  It will be held on Saturday night October 31.
