Updates in High Point

We continue to have 2-3 new families arrive from Burma each month.   Some have relatives in High Point and others are bravely making a new life for themselves in the Carolinas.   I met Peter and Mary and their son David a couple of weeks ago.  They are Falam Chin.  David, age 6, started at Johnson Global Elementary School last week.

This morning I found Pastor Cing Cing teaching a group of 5-6 Chin how to preach.   They have various lay preachers to help with the Saturday night and Sunday morning services.   Be praying that this goes well.

Johnson had a group of about 25 in his Asian youth class.  All of these teens go to public school and can understand some English.  About 1/4 of the children are second generation Lao.

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
