That’s the language Matthew will be learning in the Missionary Training Center (MTC) of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (the Mormons) when he leaves home on December 6th. We’re pretty excited. He’ll be serving in the California Roseville mission (just outside Sacramento, CA and north). I am soooo happy that he’ll be stateside and just as happy that he’ll be learning a language. Serious coolness!
I of course hopped on line and started reading everything I could find about the Hmong people. They are from China and Vietnam and most that migrated here are refugees from Vietnam for helping America. One of the most informative sites I’ve found was Jeff Lindsay’s. He mostly deals with the Hmong in Minnesota, but a lot of the information is generic. Read it here. http://www.jefflindsay.com/Hmong_tragedy.html
