For the second year in a row I have had the pleasure of traveling to Texas to photograph families that are now living here from the country of Burma now known as Myanamar.
These families now reside in Texas. The Chin Refugee Ministry in Lewisville, assists the families with all the necessary paperwork for school, medical assistance as well as housing. Their Mission Statement: Is to stand with our Chin brothers and sisters in Christ who live in Lewisville, TX. We help establish, equip, and engage the Chin by connecting them with American individuals, families and community resources to help meet their practical, emotional and spiritual needs as they begin a new life in America.
This year we had new families come to get pictures taken as well as some returning families. It is a special blessing and privilege for me to be able to help with this ministry in some small way. The families I photograph will now have pictures and memories of their growing family as well as photographs to send back to their relatives that still live in Mynamar.
