This week in review…

Recent father, Ka Di Thang (nicknamed Kyaw Win) got his license a couple of weeks ago.  He works at a local nursery (plants) and now he can drive himself to work in his Mazda.

The Thakbal’s signed their closing papers on their house yesterday.   They will be moving over the next few days.

Frosintina called and she started a new job working for a laundry service that cleans and folds medical scrubs.   She also said that the local community college will evaluate her Burmese high school grades for admission into their school.   She has had thoughts of being a nurse.

Last week in Sunday school, the English speaking Burmese class, took a “field trip” to see the cross in our church sanctuary.  I had explained the purpose of the nails and ribbons.  Ray Wah was along and he went right up to the cross and put in three nails.  He has 3 relatives he will lift up in prayer for their salvation.

One Kiss and his household of 9 arrived a couple of weeks ago.  He is the father of 7 children (4 boys and 3 girls).  In addition to his wife, her mother arrived with them.   They live on north Johnson street.  One Kiss understands English fairly well and can converse.  He attended Bible college for three years in Burma. This family is S’gaw Karen.   I’ll try to get a picture.

Ed Winslow and Joe Stallings have been organizing children to attend the East District Wesleyan camp.  They tell me we have 17 Burmese children and two Burmese counselors going from our church.   We are extremely grateful for the scholarships provided for these campers by interested friends in the church.

  1. Hi John,

    I read about One Kiss and his family with seven children. Is there anything they need right now?
