Moves Ahead

Ka Di Thang and his family are getting ready to move into city housing near College Avenue.  After working long 50 hour weeks in Malayasia for several years, he found himself without work (for 10 months) when he arrived in High Point.  Last spring we installed a floor in Raleigh.  One time he said to me, “My wife, Sang I, said to me, Ka Di Thang, you need to work,  you are happier when you are working”.

Chaw White is also going to move into the same city housing project in the next week.  Because of his hand being mutilated he has had difficulty finding jobs.  He worked at a car wash for a year and now he is helping to build boats.  He spent the last two winters huddled with a space heater in one bedroom of his two bedroom house. because he couldn’t afford the deposit and monthly bills for the homes gas heat.  I thank the Lord that these circumstances can be changed.

Both of these men have seasonal jobs with unpredictable income.   The High Point city housing is pro-rated based on income and combines utilities and house payments together.  This program has been a God-send for some of our arriving families trying to get established.
