[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]

NARRATOR: Mr. Wen waited until he

was 30-years-old to get married and was

very happy when he found out he and his wife

were going to have a baby boy.

MR. WEN THROUGH INTERPRETER: I was finally

going to be a father.

It was a dream come true.

NARRATOR: Mrs. Wen started sewing baby clothes right away.

But the excitement didn't last long because Jin Hua was born

with a cleft lip and palate.

MR. WEN THROUGH INTERPRETER: I worried

people will make fun of him and he

wouldn't be able to go to school or get married.

I blamed myself.

NARRATOR: Mrs. Wen thought it was her fault.

She'd had a cleft lip and palate herself.

An inexperienced doctor had sewn her mouth up

with a simple needle and thread.

It affected her appearance and speech ever since.

MRS. WEN THROUGH INTERPRETER: I did not

want that to happen to my son.

So I vowed that no matter how poor we were,

we will get professional surgery for him.

NARRATOR: As farmers, it would take years to save for surgery.

Meanwhile, Jin Hua struggled to eat and take his medicine.

[COUGHING]

MRS. WEN THROUGH INTERPRETER: Sometimes he

choked and could not breathe.

MR. WEN THROUGH INTERPRETER: A local doctor

said he could die at any time.

NARRATOR: Desperate, the couple prayed

to their deceased relatives.

MRS. WEN THROUGH INTERPRETER: But it

seemed like they did not understand anything

that we were saying.

MR. WEN THROUGH INTERPRETER: If my ancestors couldn't help,

who would?

NARRATOR: Later, a doctor called Mr. Wen and told him about CBN.

MR. WEN THROUGH INTERPRETER: I got

my wish, surgery for my son.

No one could believe it.

NARRATOR: The surgery transformed Jin Hua's face.

MR. WEN THROUGH INTERPRETER: He's much stronger

than he was before and he can eat by himself.

MRS. WEN THROUGH INTERPRETER: The surgery

was professional and perfect.

Jin Hua never looked in a mirror before and now

he loves to see himself.

[LAUGHING]

NARRATOR: And now the Wens have a new faith.

MR. WEN THROUGH INTERPRETER: Now I

believe there must be a true God, a God who

really cares about me.

And I will love to know more about Christianity.

MRS. WEN THROUGH INTERPRETER: Now I'm

willing to believing him and give my life to him

because he helped my son and changed his life.

Thank you, CBN.

Jesus gave us hope through you.
