Last night we had a couple of hours of discussion with some of the key Chin leaders among the refugees here in KL. They laid out our plan for the next few days. We will be very busy but should return with the kind of information that can help our church and others have meaningful impact when they are here. We have already learned that pastoral care/counselling team components will be key. We have also learned that the importance of the medical team was greater than anticipated. We have also learned that we need to add an ESL component. Today we will spend the day with the educational leaders and the teachers from the six schools. We should close the day with a clear understanding of their places of success and their points of greatest need. We are anxious to hear what they have to say. We will be taking tons of pictures and will be ready to share stories and opportunities when we return.
Pray for us as we do you. Grace and Peace, Tom
