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.

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
