We had the priviledge to visit a burmese family for Hari Raya. Their children come to our Sunday School. We had a good time getting to know them better, their children were friendly, hospitable and made us feel very much at home.
Some of their stories are really touching, and I can’t share all of them here, but here are some that I can.
The man in the background of the picture below, he lives in Ampang as a municipal worker. He is a relative visiting the family we were visiting. He has a wife and two children in Burma. He has not seen them in 17 years. The oldest child, is 17.
This pretty girl here in the next picture loves to learn, but the government has refused entry of foreign children into our local schools. So she stays at home and helps mum look after the other kids.
They are our friends. We had a good time.
They served us some really, really, really, hot beef curry and nasi himpit. It was awesome. Did I mention it was hot?
The next time you meet someone underpriviledged, take time to talk to them, more importantly, listen to their stories, there’s just so much to learn!
