Welcome to America

I met this Karen Burmese family this morning at church.  They live on Denny Street here in High Point.   They arrived five days ago from a refugee camp in Thailand.   When I asked the father how long he was in the refugee camp, he said 11 years.   Pastor Peng Len, Nu Nu and I  delivered some First Rice and put the kids to work writing out the names of the 5 family members.   Here they are:

For my English readers, I am in the same boat as you.  I will try to get their names written in  English in the next few days.

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
