Starting in July 2013, full day classes will run from Mondays through Fridays at 17D Adam Road right up till end of October. The 2nd semester is from Jan to June 2014.
Both students are brothers from the Chin ethnic group in Northwest Myanmar. Bro Mang Za Lian, 26, was baptised in May 1997 when his family was converted to the True Jesus Church. He is married, with a toddler daughter. He belongs to Taungzalat Church in Kalay.
