In Memory of Our Friend, Jana Pham

Dear Jana,

It is still hard for us to wrap our minds around the fact that you are in Heaven at this very moment. It seems like yesterday that we were sitting with you at a Khmer restaurant in Long Beach, California, talking about your dreams of serving the Lord with your life. Linda and I vividly remember observing your life as you made the decision to not just be a nominal Christian, but a committed disciple of Christ. Everyone the Lord brought across your path could tell that you were a person who was not willing to allow this culture to define you or dictate the decisions you made in your life. It was apparent that you were being led by the Good Shepherd; and you were not following Him reluctantly, but willingly and submissively. Although it breaks our hearts to see you leave us, we are confident that your dreams of being used by God are being fulfilled even in your death. We are praying that those in your life who have grown cold spiritually, or have never known the Saviour, will be brought to a place of sweet fellowship with the One Who loved us and gave Himself for us all. We love you, Jana.

In Christ,
Chad and Linda

Jana's Home-going Service will be held Friday, June 8th, at 10:00 a.m. PST at the First Baptist Church of Long Beach, California- her home church in which she faithfully served Her Saviour.

  1. I wish I could turn back in time and to have the opportunity to get to know Jana more. We would spend time with the same group of people in College. But I never really approached her. But nevertheless, I know that she was an amazing and sweet person. She is now in a better place.
