Andrew Ramirez30710/1/2018 19:45:45James ShauStatus updateAndrew came to the first bible study 9/27, at a table first with Emily, then I joined. Later brother Spencer spent time with and then I returned to be with. (I only got his name Andrew. I guess him to be this one; possibly the other one #296). He lived in Sunnyvale, a family with Catholic background. He had a serious incident when 14-15 (21 now). His vocal cord was damaged, so he does not sing (his speech was not very clear). He's taking just one class (English reading). He said he's not working because of "disability". His favorite food is (some kind of) chichen. He seemed a bit religious and wasn't happy with his family not worshipping God on "Sunday". He became more friendly when I chatted more with him.May the Lord, who does not break bruised reed, gain Andrew and His family.
Eden Sayyad22610/1/2018 19:34:54James ShauStatus updateEden came to the first bible study 9/27, waiting while we were still setting up the table. He joined the bible study, together with Wilfredo (but they didn't know each other before), and Spencer, me, and Zoe Tai. He was a bit quiet but seemed friendly and open and stayed till he and Wilfredo both needed to go to class at 12pm.May the Lord continue to draw Eden to the bible study and open the opportunities to build up more relatedness.
Wilfredo Concepam25810/1/2018 19:28:54James ShauFurther AppointmentWilfredo, first year stuent from Philippine (good English), came to the first bible study 9/27, waiting while we were setting up the table. He was really open, sharing he's suffering anxiety attack since last December and felt better when praying to the Lord. We shared with him Phil.4:4-9 and prayed for him. He was in tears and kept thanking us when needing to go for class at 12pm.

He responded my text Monday afternoon immediately and said he felt better since, thankful for the prayer, and asked for another bible study this Thursday. He text'ed "Praise the Lord!" after some exchanges.
Please pray for Wilfredo to continue to experience the Lord as peace releasing him from the attack of the enemy, for him to come this Thursday and to enjoy further His word and to build up relatedness with more saints.
Li Yan(Melinda)30910/1/2018 19:19:23Nina ChenEXCLUDE: asked not to contact any moreLi Yan(Melinda),a classmate of our sister Anita(李虹樂)joined Bible study yesterday. She is a Christian for 12 years(10 years in China,2 years in US). After the first Bible study she told sister Anita that she won’t join future Bible study, and showed disagreements about the practice in local churches and some of brother Witness Lee’s teaching. Especially she felt the footnote on the recovery version is the interpreting word from man instead of God, which is against the teaching she received in the past. Since she already showed no interest to our sister, I think we may consider not to contact her for a while till she is open and seeking.
Youra Cho2569/28/2018 11:58:28Sunhee Choi
EXCLUDE: asked not to contact any moreAt first, Youra told me she would come to bible study and my place for dinner on Thurs as well. but she changed her mind at the last minute. Then, texted me that
she appreciated our warm welcoming but wanted to commit herself more to the denomination where she started to attend one month ago. So I replied to encourage her to have more intimate conversation with the Lord.
It seems like there is no need of further contact for a while.
Yosif Younam63/14/2018 22:57:35James Shau..Further AppointmentYosif is having regular 1-1 Tuesday morning reading the book "A practical and living way to enjoy Christ". He comes to THU bible study sometimes (life-study of Genesis). He would like to "give a a try" to come to the small group meeting this Friday.Please pray for Yosif to enjoy the small group meeting & the saints, for the Spirit to testify in him that this is where he belongs.

Jennifer Lee1293/14/2018 13:24:07Ruth ChoiAppointment after initial contactcame to Bible study on 3/1. never read the gospels before and started to be christian when she started praying for her sick father who is still alive until now. read Ephesians, Timothy, and other books. started to read John now in the Bible study and said will come weekly on time to read the Bible around 10:40. lives in los altos and goes to de anza. a bit older than regular students. goes to korean church on sunday and sometimes american church in mountain view.her eyes to be open to the truth and see the revelation. we can get to know where she is at and what she needs.
Winnie Tse423/14/2018 13:20:49Ruth ChoiPrayer requestregularly joining Bible study on thursday. after she got baptized, her family still did not know about her baptism. went to college conference for one day 3/3 and enjoy the singing and message. learn that she needs to just depend on Jesus instead of figuring out right or wrong. realize she has more things to learn and there is so much more in the Bible than what she understand just by reading it. her and her dad looked at sis Kitty's place to possible move in by end of March. that way she is closer to school and able to meet with saints. the Lord will work in her parents heart to consider letting Winnie move in to sis Kitty's place
Evelyn(Jung Hyun) Yu653/14/2018 13:16:24Ruth Choi
Appointment after initial contactjoined combine friday meeting during GTCA. went to dinner at the Peng's, Abraham and Amelia Lee's and Rabbi and Emily's place. joined table meeting 3/11 and said she likes the prophesying meeting more than table meeting. connected with Rabbi, Emily, Carmen and Josephine. will keep inviting her. she puts Lords day meeting as priority then if she has time will be more open to other meetings. but quite open for short dinner invites.She will be open to come every Lords day and feel more comfortable with the saints. also to get connected with Josephine.
Kankartu Kandikathn1573/13/2018 22:47:37Hannah Kan..Prayer request(js replayed John's input on the Google sheet March 5th)Probably for her coming to the next YP meeting. And that she'd feel welcome and shepherded by the saints. She's a little nervous at times but I think we should pray that the Lord would give her a heart to come to the meeting and that the YP would take up the role of shepherding her (we're never too young to shepherd!)
Julian Ruano Perez1402/21/2018 19:52:23James ShauStatus updateJulian responded to my text (3rd) asking him for his correct e-mail address and gave me his e-mail address. We had little note on him, only that "not Christian".Lord, bless Julian and increase the opening in him. Bring him to meet with the saints and receive salvation thru the hearing of faith.

Nina & Tiffany (June input)
possible applintment timeShe would like find time during after class from ~3:45pm-7pm Tuesday/Thursday to read the bible, when she usually stays in the De Anza Library. She's been to Santa Clara Sister Janet's home on Thursday evening before. Because she needs to work on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, she may need to do her home work on Lord's day.The Lord can sanctify a set time and proper shepherds for her to be nourished, perfected and ushered into the church life.
Evan Wang & Winnie Liu842/11/2018 18:39:57
J Shau & Thomas Tsui
Further AppointmentThomas w his kids and I revisited Evan. We knocked on his door last LD. Evan was away but his wife Winnie let us in (primarily because of the kids). They used to meet in Texas w a Chinese-speaking group. They moved here last August. Evan working for Apple. They had received the Lord 2011 & 2016 (wording suggests a dominational group) but only read part of the gospels. They had some questionings and did not look to meet after moving. (They are NOT ATTACHED). Winnie was warmed up after the fellowship and prayer at the end. She showed a lot of appreciation and willingness to meet with us, ideally a chinese-speaking group good for their 2 & 5 years old and her parents in 60’s. Evan was back from grocery shopping w Winnie’s dad. They agreed to our visiting again next LD. We also gave Evan the Basic Elements (they need those messages, maybe good to have chinese version). Winnie gave us her phone number. It may be good to visit them next LD, say JS and some Chinese-speaking saints (Thomas in Taiwan) before inviting them for Friday SG. Winnie’s father, a retired cook, wanted us to stay for dinner.Please pray for the Lord to continue to preserve them for the genuine church life, for the our next visit next LD with chinese-speaking saints picking up the burden for this household.
