After being admitted to the emergency room with a large tumor pressing on her brain, Sarah was frightened, confused and left to think about her mortality as a person with no belief in God.
At the same time, Sarah's husband Chan was weeping alongside her. However, Chan also took that time to drop to his knees and cry out to God to heal his wife both physically and spiritually.
Chan became a believer years ago through a Global Media Outreach Gospel presentation, but since then Sarah had remained resistant to the call of Jesus on her life.
In his pleading, Chan also received hope through prayer from his longtime friend and Online Missionary, Ted, who helped him become a believer five years before.
The strong rapport that developed over their five-year, Gospel-centered relationship led Ted to share Chan’s prayer request with some of his friends within the ministry. Through fervent prayer, Chan was connected to a Christian friend living in the same Vietnamese city as he and his wife and was able to invite him to the hospital to pray for Sarah.
This small act of faith and prayer was the final push that Sarah needed to finally surrender her life to Christ. After years of Chan planting seeds for his wife's salvation through prayer, the message of the Gospel finally broke through and led Sarah to repent of her sins and confess her need for a Savior.
