China: Adoptive family experiences life-changing miracle
China is facing an abandoned baby crisis as parents walk away from children born with physical disabilities. One Chinese couple, however, saved a child and called on God to do a miracle.
For seven years Fu Chun Zhi and his wife Xiao Li tried to conceive a child. Finally, in 2011, they decided to adopt an abandoned baby and the Christian couple was thrilled when they found the perfect baby at a local orphanage. “As soon as we got the phone call, we were so happy. My wife and I couldn’t wait to see this baby,” Zhi said.
In the midst of their happiness, they received disappointing news. The baby was born with a small tumor in his mouth and was not able to eat and drink. “We didn’t know what to do. We wanted to keep the baby, but meanwhile, the cost for the surgery was so expensive,” Zhi said.
Church leaders felt compassion towards the couple and invited all Christians to pray for a miracle. Although nothing was changing, they continued to pray. “God’s favor will show up when we are down to nothing,” says pastor Kate Gu. “Just because they didn’t see a way, it certainly didn’t mean God was not working behind the scenes. I told the couple to remain faithful and be patient.”
One day, Zhi and Xiao Li saw the baby just spit something out of his mouth. They took a closer look and discovered that it was the tumor that had been lodged in the child’s mouth. It brought the couple to tears. “Only Jesus could do such an unthinkable miracle,” Zhi said. “When all Christians come and pray together, we can move mountains!”
Not only did God give an abandoned child a new home, but he also performed a life-changing miracle for an entire Chinese family.
