A Mother’s Dying Wish

Mrs. Dong died two days after her son was born.  

“The last thing she said was, ‘I’m not going to get to see our boy grow up,’” recalls Mr. Dong.  “I was devastated.  I had no hope and wanted to give up.   But everyone I knew said, ‘Come on, your son needs you!’”

So, Mr. Dong did his best.  But it was hard because YuPing was born with a cleft lip and palate.  

“He was constantly hungry, but he could barely eat, so he was weak and thin,” Mr. Dong says.

YuPing was only half the size of other children his age.  He cried all the time and was often sick with fevers. Once, it was so bad that he went into a coma.

“I was worried that I was going to lose him just like I lost my wife,” confesses Mr. Dong.  He continues, “I really wished she was by my side so we could go through this together. I felt useless as a dad. A lot of people said my son’s mouth was so bad that it wouldn’t be possible to fix it. But I knew that my wife would have made cleft lip surgery a top priority.  So, I honored that.”

As a shoe repairman, it would take him over ten years to earn enough money for surgery.   But he was willing to do it.  Mrs. Dong had been a Christian and had encouraged him to trust God, too. But Mr. Dong didn’t believe.

“I thought, ‘If there is a God, why is this happening? How is my son ever going to make it in the future?’” admits Mr. Dong.

He was so desperate that he prayed anyway and was surprised when he heard about an organization that did free cleft lip surgeries. Shortly after applying for help, he received a call from the CBN.

He says, “For the first time, I felt like somehow God had heard my prayer.”

The free surgery we provided YuPing put a smile on his face that his father had never seen before.   Now he’s healthy and looks more like his mother than ever.

“My son is cured.  It has changed our lives,” Mr. Dong joyfully says.   He concludes, “I feel like CBN is an angel of God.  Now, I believe in Jesus.  He saved my son!”
