News from the Burmese Church in the Triad

About five months ago Savy was a passenger in an automobile accident.  He seriously hurt his neck and spine.  His fingers and extremities have had tingling  sensations off and on.  He has been in severe pain.   Tomorrow he will finally have surgery to try to correct the problems caused by the injuries.  Pray for this young man awaiting the arrival of his wife and her family of origin to the United States.   He is in the High Point Regional Hospital.

Separ is the oldest daughter of Pa Klay and Gree.  She and her husband and baby boy along with a couple of others were visiting from the Atlanta, GA area this weekend.  They seem to be doing fine.   They were able to see the new home of Pa Klay which has a wheel chair ramp that allows him to use his electric wheel chair for independent access to the home.

Es Lu Lu had a couple of days off and visited from Raleigh.  Her sushi business is slowly growing.  She visited with Mun Raw.  Read a fascinating story she told me at this link.

Remember Zaw Lewt and Labya Lu Lu in prayer.   They attend the Greenwood Hills Wesleyan Church.  He fell this week at work and shattered his knee.  He is in a cast and can’t work.  Just discovered he is quite adept at restoring computers to operating order.

Nan Lian Khup, has been in the states for a couple of years.  He fled his homeland over 6 years ago, making his way to Malaysia and subsequently to the United States.   This week his wife and children arrived directly from Burma.  They were granted political asylum and allowed to leave the country.  Nan Lian Khup had never seen his 6 year old son.    Pray for them as they get settled in.  Khup has been fighting some serious illness but is on the mend.  His sister flew in from New Mexico to help with the transitions.   They are a part of a church in Greensboro.

I saw Dee Ray Saturday on the bus returning workers from Lumberton to the Triad.  I am thankful he has a job.  His family stayed with us this past summer.
