Getting those names right!
The other day I spent some time with Clement and Ka Di Thang arranging for some car repair. Ka Di Thang called Clement, Mane [mah nay] and so I asked him about this name. He said this is a nick name. He and his wife Mary work at the Townsend chicken plant in Siler City. However Mane is currently at home recovering from a sprain and bruise to his right arm and wrist.
Another person who works in Siler City is K’naw Bawh [kay nah bawh]. I had been mispronouncing his name but as I spent time with my friends I heard them say it the correct way. He is one of the pastors of our Chin worship group.
