Our mother, Yang Xiong Thao (YaajXyoojThoj) (Nam XwbfwbZaamYaajThoj), born on November 15, 1943 in Laos.Yang was one of twelve children of which any have passed.

In 1976, God delivered our family out of Laos to Moultrie, Georgia and then to Indianapolis, Indiana, before we settled in the Twin Cities in 1979. In Minneapolis, driven by their faith and commitment to ministry, our mother and father established the Hmong Christian Alliance Church, Hmong Assembly of God, VaajtswvHaivMoob, and the Hmong American Life Safety Foundation.

On January 13, 2020, our mother peacefully left and joined our father and God in Heaven. Throughout her life, our mother always lived by her love for her family and her faith in God. She never failed to impart her great wisdom to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Above all else, she was a compassionate and God-fearing woman. She lived her whole life according to God’s will and doing God’s work.
