Phon Then [po ten, or po tang]

DSCN3966aOver the last couple of months I have had a chance to work with Phon Then several times.  He is from the Matupi village in the Chin State of Myanmar.   He is a single adult.

When he came he knew little English but has been studying at GTCC each day and now at times even serves to interpret for me with another.  He is a hard worker and adept with some of the power tools we were using on light construction projects.   He must have used them while working in Malaysia after fleeing Burma.  He lives in the home of Thang Tlang.

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
