Tea w/ A Persecuted Christian from Burma

Wow.... Elena and I just had an amazing 2 hour conversation with a brother in Christ from Burma. We met last week when I was going door to door inviting our neighbors to our Thanksgiving potluck. I gave him a call yesterday and invited him over for tea and cake to connect deeper.

He moved in to our apartments 2 weeks ago and has only been in America for 8 months. After spending over 5 years in prison being tortured (1999-2005) he fled with his church to Malaysia and Thailand before arriving in America. Powerful story of love, persecution, purpose, joy, injustice, pain, peace, fear, and forgiveness.

We invited him to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with Elena's family. I'm super excited to continue growing deeper in this relationship.
