New Year, New Work, New Perspective, New Boss
So many of our friends in the High Point Burmese community have been working under difficult arrangements. We had a number of fathers (and mothers) that commuted down to Rockingham, NC (100 miles) every day to work at a chicken plant. Those who worked there, especially the graveyard shift, came home tired, wore out their first used cars, and several of these new drivers had traffic accidents. In addition they were away from their families for long hours. Now they have found similar work in Siler City which is only 40 miles away. Some have even taken work on the day shifts at the Townsend plant.
Yesterday many of the men had to work to help the plant catch up after the disruptive snow days. Knaw Bawk, one of our lay preachers in the Chin/Burmese service was in worship. I asked him how he was able to get to church and he said that his supervisor is also a bi-vocational pastor and allowed Knaw Bawk to attend worship and come in later in the day to put in his shift. God is so good, the praise and glory go to Him for how He as undertaken for our people.
