CBN.com —Si Qi always loved singing to her little brother Jia Qi– but didn’t understand why he never responded. She says, “It made me really sad, and I asked my mom why Jia Qi didn’t like my singing.”
Mrs. Zhang remembers, “I just told my daughter, ‘He’ll sing with you when he grows up.’”
Secretly, the Zhangs worried that their son couldn’t hear. “One time when Jia Qi was two, we were playing games with him, and I called his name loudly several times,” says Mr. Zhang. “But he did nothing. So I took him to the hospital where a doctor confirmed our greatest fear. Jia Qi was deaf!”
Mr. Zhang is a farmer and only makes about 500 dollars a year. So he pooled all his resources to get Jia Qi a second-hand hearing aid and send him to speech therapy. But within three months, that hearing aid broke and the boy was left again in complete silence.
Mrs. Zhang weeps, “He looked me in the eyes and seemed to say, ‘Mom, help me!” Then he’d get frustrated and he’d hit his ears and his head and cry.”
Mr. Zhang adds, “I worried so much about his future. How could he get a job? Or get married?”
The principal of Jia Qi’s school knew the Zhangs couldn’t afford another hearing aid, so she called CBN and we bought him a brand new one!
Mr. Zhang proclaims, “This new hearing aid is so advanced that there is not a sound that Jia Qi cannot hear. Now he can express himself very well!”
Mrs. Zhang says, “I remember the day he said ‘momma’ for the first time. I just hugged him and wept. It was the sweetest sound to my heart! And because of your love for my son, I was drawn to the Lord. Now your Almighty God is my God. I worship Him and listen to Him!!!”
And now Jia Qi sings WITH his sister – about Jesus.
Mr. Zhang concludes, “I’m so proud of Jia Qi. He will have a bright future for sure.”
