His Name is Tommy. He is from a city just outside Shanghai China. He is an MD in China and came here to take courses in advanced gerontology. He is going back sometime end of june to middle of July. He has to present his thesis to the hospital he is working in. 


That is in Shantou City in Guangdong Provence. He is not far from Hong Kong but would require a permit to travel there. 


My wife and I are very proud of Tommy. He has become an unbaptised publisher and has done 3 bible readings in our hall. He brings us so much joy to have studied with him to this point. 

We are just about done the bible teach book and will work on completing the last chapter and then complete the rest of the brochure on the organization. 


I will be getting in touch with the Local Chinese Congregation to see what the easiest way would be for him to contact the brothers there. 


I think he is kind nervous about being able to contact them. 


I will be going to a regional with him in the middle of June so that he won't miss it. There is one in Hong Kong but again he would need a permit to go to it. That may be easier than he thinks it is. I am not sure. 


He asked if we could do his study over skype. Of course we are willing but I emphasized to him the need of personal contact with the brothers there. 

Jehovah has certainly blessed us with this study. My heart swells with appreciation for the opportunity.

Hello, Greg. Congratulations for that study!


Some years ago I heard Chinese congregations were concentrating on Chinese students that came here to finish their university courses. The reason was that if they made progress quickly, they could be trained so that once back home they could be more useful in the congregations in China. That seems to be the case with Tommy.


Please, send him our Christian love.

Thanks I will pass that to him. I will be setting a meeting up with some of the chinese elders to see how we can get hold of them there.

Maybe a reminder to Tommy, that he will have a great privilege telling others the "good news", so they can have that joy we all have.

He knows he has been going out with the brothers in the chinese cong. He says its easier to learn in English but tell others in Mandarin. We are so proud of him. He absorbs everything we can throw at him. Instant application with deep appreciation. I could not of asked for a better student. He will be back in October for a couple months to defend his thesis. Then he is hoping to stay here in Canada. We shall see what Jehovah blesses him with.
