Publisher's Summary

Through a series of miraculous events, a Chinese family, living in Vietnam, joins the ranks of "boat people" and overcomes oppressive struggles to raise its children in the foreign culture of America. At three years of age Vinh Chung and his family of 10 fled communist oppression in Vietnam. As legendary "boat people" they were attacked twice by Thai pirates and left for dead, adrift on the South China Sea. A World Vision mercy ship stumbled across them and rescued them, eventually relocating them to the tough frontier town of Fort Smith, Arkansas, where they faced poverty, ethnic discrimination, and an almost insurmountable language barrier. The Chung family's inspirational story, as told by Vinh Chung, offers fascinating insights into Asian traditions as it gives the account of three remarkable women who shaped the lives of Vinh and his father. From one dream and a series of providential encounters, to a life of perseverance, sacrifice, and a new faith in God, Vinh excelled and eventually graduated from Harvard Medical School. He and his siblings hold five master's degrees and five doctorates. This is Vinh's family's extraordinary journey.

Amazing story but the narration is tough to listen to

The story itself is one of struggle and overcoming. I want to finish it, but the narration makes it tough. The poor diction is distracting and a bit monotone. I may turn the audible version back in and get the Kindle version just to be able to finish.

Great, convicting and life impacting

Excellent true life story. Overwhelmingly convicting if God's love for us even when we have neither heard of Him or know of Him.

Thanks to all theses family members for experiencing these trials which would have caused many of us to give up early on in their journey. But because of their passion and determination and for the Lord's hand in their and Stan Moonyham's vision and commitment to the Lord's vision and the conviction of the WV Board, this testimonial is possible.
