Dawt Cung Arrived!

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome Dawt Cung [dot chung].  He is from the Talngin [Tolng Gong] region of the Chin State of Burma (see map below).  He came ahead of his wife and three sons.   He and his neighbors have had to flee their country because of a military that persecutes Christians, and enslaves young men like him for weeks on end without provision for him or his family.  He has been invited by the United States of America to seek refugee in our country and is making a new life in High Point, NC.   The local First Wesleyan Church has a program called First Rice that provides a 20-25 lb bag of rice within in a few days of a refugee’s arrival.  Dawt Cung is sitting in the back closest to the door.

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
