Cheing Chut, a pastor in Sudan had a heavy weight on his shoulders. He knew he had to protect his family and his congregation from the violence against Christians in Sudan.
Cheing sent his family to the U.S. for protection, while he stayed behind to protect his congregation. Things got worse after 9/11 when the U.S added Sudan to the list of terrorist nations. This made it nearly impossible for Cheing to go to the U.S. to see his family.
All of that changed recently when he finally was able to meet his family at Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport. Cheing, his wife, their six children, and now six grandchildren, had a happy and tearful reunion.
A warm welcome from Chieng's family
'We never thought this day would come,' said daughter Nyahon Chut. 'Praise God.'
And that's what's good,
