In China, Feng lives not only with a husband who suffers from cerebral palsy, but also with a son who was born with the same condition. “It is bad enough that my husband cannot manage,” she said, “but to see my son suffer is very difficult.”
Much of her time is consumed caring for her husband and son, and Feng has been unable to hold down a job. The family struggles to make ends meet. “My son’s education is the most important thing. It is the only way he will ever be able to change his life.” To make sure that her son can attend school, Feng carries him on her back, both ways, every day.
A wheelchair was an expense the family could not afford, even for their beloved child. Feng reflected, “I dreamed of a wheelchair, but this hard life killed that dream.” When a local charity and Free Wheelchair Mission planned a wheelchair distribution in the region, mobility was restored, and life for the family would never be the same.
“Mom!” Feng’s son cried out with joy. “Now you will not have to carry me on your back any more!”
- For resources and relationships that would improve wheelchair distribution.
- That local churches and missionaries would be moved with compassion.
- That Feng, her husband, and her son would be blessed.
