They traveled from a Far Country

Clement and Mary have been in the US for a few months.   They have not yet landed jobs.  We went and saw Christmas lights together the other night.  Clement tells me he completed university training in Myanmar before fleeing the country.   Clement is fluent in English and his wife does very well with this new language as well.

Clement and Mary are from Mindat which is in the southwest corner of the Chin state of Myanmar.

About johnmcmurphy

Jesus is first and foremost in my life. He is above all religions, principalities and powers. In everything He must increase and I must decrease. Into the hands of Jesus, God has placed life and death, truth and purity. strength and meaning. Only in a growing understanding of the triune God, and his son Jesus can I do, breathe, exist and serve. I have a Bachelor's degree in Bible from Vennard College, a Master's in Social Science from Azusa Pacific University and a Ph. D. from Ohio State in Family Relations and Human Development. I am an ordained pastor involved in cross-cultural ministry. I am currently employed at several colleges as an instructor. If you need to get in touch with me, just leave a comment, I screen all comments and so you can leave further contact information which I will erase before it is published. -John
