Thanksgiving, for jobs.

North Carolina has been slow to recover from this recession, but today I give thanks for the jobs afforded the refugees of the Triad.   “When I called around this week to help Graham fill four more slots for custodial work at a nearby hospital, I found most everyone who needed a job had one.  The Chin men and women are all settled into jobs.  All but the newest arriving Karen families have a member who has started work.

In the last six months, Paula at Graham Personnel helped placed Eh Paw and Eh Yaw; started Toe Toe at a job near the airport cutting paper, Esther Moe and Lai Thang Pui, Lal Liuan Pui i, Ray Wah, and Ko Saw at Marsh cabinets here in town; and Nyein, Phong Hten, Steven, Toe Win, Eh Kaw Htoo and Peh Low at Baptist hospital doing custodial work.

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
