The Plai Say Family has arrived. Welcome to America!

This week we had the arrival of an extended family of nine.  In the picture Plai Say is the father in the back second to the left.  His wife, Mu Lu, is beside him.  The gentleman (left rear) in the teal Karen shirt speaks English his name is Es Sher, next is No Sher.  These two brothers and the the wife Mu Lu are children on Poe Dee the grandmother (lower left).  The children (l-r) are Las Ser (14), Doh Blu So (7), Eh Dah (12) and the oldest son Ey Weh (20).  The family speaks Karen Burmese but several could understand some of my English questions.  We are so glad they arrived safely after being in the refugee camp for 18 years!

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
