Lifestory Oh Oh
Oh Oh arrived in High Point around September 27, 2012. His parents and 2 brothers and 1 sister are still awaiting their UN refugee cards in the Thai border refugee camp. Oh Oh has a Christian heritage with a grandmother who was a believer and their family lived in a village of believers.
In 2006 the family decided they couldn’t stay in their village, it was not safe. The parents were afraid soldiers would return and harm their family as they had done others. So they made the two day trip on foot, to the Thai border. The youngest sibling was just 10 years old. At the border they crossed the river by boat and sought refuge in a camp in 2006.
While Oh Oh was in high school in the refugee camp he was doing poorly in his studies (reading) and he prayed and said Lord if you will help me to graduate from high school I will go to Bible school. The Lord intervened and Oh Oh enrolled in the Karen Baptist Bible School that was inside the refugee camp. He did two years of studies in the school. He has been a blessing to our church helping with the preaching duties. He also has some talent with music. Below is a picture of he and Pastor One Kiss just before Oh Oh preached this morning.
