Welcome Eh Paw and Eh Yaw

This month we have had a number of new arrivals.  Two brothers of Paw Kyet Yaw arrived following their sister to start a new life in High Point.    I was talking with the World Relief director, Andrew, and he indicated that the number of refugees in camps on the Thai border is now 70,000.  The UN is setting a deadline for these folks to apply for refugee status.  This final group will filter through to various countries over the next few years.  The UN has already combined camps and is closing down the refugee camps in this border area.  In Malaysia and India there are still a number of Chin and Kachin refugees seeking asylum from persecution on Myanmar.

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
