Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

I want to thank you for your faith-filled prayers for Hanh Do the past few days.
God is good & Hanh is in His glorious eternal presence. I guess you can say
I'm a friend with a whole lot of "stubborn crazy faith." I truly believed with many
others God could raise her from the dead if it was not her time, like He did
with Dorcas (Acts 9:36) or Eutychus in (Acts 20:9), but God's will was for
Hanh to bask in His irresistable presence and her spirit to live on in each of our lives.
To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. She is doing just that!

I know Hanh is so happy right now. Below is a vision Hanh wrote for her life that
we found in her room a few days ago. It is a vision of her reckless passion, dedication
and pursuit of God to reach the youth of our generation. May it inspire you to
live like she did: sold out to God, all or nothing, no looking back, radical disciple of Christ.

Mark 9:23
Jesus said unto him, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes"

HANH’S VISION:

YOUTH THAT WILL STAND FOR GOD IN WHATEVER CIRCUMSTANCE
YOUTH THAT WILL SEEK GOD THROUGH HIS WORD, THROUGH PRAYER AND THROUGH QUITE TIME
YOUTH THAT WILL BE BOLD AND WILL REACH OUT TO THEIR LOST FRIENDS AND SPREAD THEIR FIRE FOR GOD TO EVERYONE THEY COME IN CONTACT WITH
YOUTH THAT WILL LOVE GOD BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE & STAND UP FOR THEIR BELIEFS IN SITUATIONS OF PERSECUTION

WAYS I CAN HELP TO BRING THE VISION OF THE YOUTH INTO EXISTENCE

1. DRIVE THE YOUTH TO WHEREVER THEY NEED TO GO: CHURCH, SCHOOL, STORE, MALL,
RESTAURANT,
2. BUILD RELATIONSHIPS AND TRUST GET TO KNOW THEM AND THEIR PARENTS BETTER IN ORDER
TO EARN THE RIGHT TO MINISTER THE WORD OF GOD IN THEIR LIFE
3. GET MORE FIRE FROM GOD FOR MYSELF SO THAT MY FIRE WILL SPARK FIRES AND ENABLES ME
TO ENCOURAGE OTHERS IN MY LIFE
4. LIVE BY EXAMPLE
5. SPEND SOME TIME JUST HANGING OUT WITH THE YOUTH
6. NOT ALWAYS BE SERIOUS JUST HAVE FUN

VISION FOR MY LIFE:
1. BE A LIGHT AND AN EXAMPLE TO MY BROTHER, DAD AND FAMILY
2. INVITE ALL THE NEIGHBORS TO A POTLUCK BBQ THIS SUMMER TO INTRODUCE MYSELF AND
BEGIN TO BUILD RELATIONSHIPS
3. BUILD RELATIONSHIPS AND EVANGELIZE TO ALL THE NEIGHBORS AND YOUTH IN THE
NEIGHBORHOOD AND INVITE THOSE YOUTH TO YOUTH EVENTS
4. EVANGELIZE AND INVITE MY FRIENDS TO CHURCH AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE
5. TRY TO MEET SOMEONE NEW AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE
6. FINISH READING THE ENTIRE BIBLE AND STUDY AND MEDITATE ON IT DAILY
7 HAVE QUITE TIME AND PRAYER WITH GOD DAILY
8. GRADUATE FROM BETHANY
9. GO ON MISSION TRIPS

I WON’T BE DENIED MY RIGHTS TO TESTIFY UNTIL ALL ARE NOTIFIED THAT JESUS CHRIST IS REAL.

Attached also are 2 links to the San Jose Mercury news articles on Hanh & Amber
the other teenager who died in the accident. They quoted Hanh's valedictorian quote..

San Jose Mercury Quote:
When Hanh Do was named San Jose High Academy's valedictorian last year, she wrote that friends would remember her this way: ``The Asian volleyball player with mad hops who got on fire for God her junior year.''

PRAISE THE LORD! This weekend both of Hanh's two brothers she was praying for
came to Christ & so did about 30-40 students from San Jose High at the Sunday
morning service at Hanh's home church Freedom Worship Center. God is getting the
glory & may Hanh's legacy live on!
