Welcome to America, Saw Han Tun & Moe Moe Thein

This morning I met Saw Han Tun and Moe Moe Thein.  They just arrived in America from Myanmar.  They are S’gaw Karen but are very comfortable with the Burmese language.  They are among the few Karen who did not flee east to the refugee camps but rather to the south to Malaysia where they worked in the capital until they could gain UN refugee status.   Welcome to our country.  We are glad you are here Saw Han Tun and Moe Moe Thein.  By the way they were so comfortable with English they initiated a greeting with me when we met.

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
