A [Birth]Day with the Karen

I had an opportunity to hang out with some Karen right here in Ohio! In case you aren't aware, the Karen are a people group from Burma. They are being persecuted and are forced out of Burma and often have to live in refugee camps in Thailand. I got to help and work with many Karen during the time I was in Thailand. It was so nice to see their smiling faces and be in their warm presence again. There are, apparently, many that live right in Cleveland and in Akron. Kelly, who I went to Thailand with, had gotten in contact with them and we went to a one-year-olds' birthday party. It was so much fun. Here are a few of the wonderful people.
