A Promise

Contact Tong Phuoc Phuc

Tele 0935088378

Several years ago Phuc and his wife were expecting a baby (Light Blue Shirt right side). The unborn baby had complications during the development stages. His wife was ill and they did not know if their baby was going to survive.

Phuc stated he made a promise to God. "If you give me a healthy baby I will dedicate my life to taking care of the babies of this area." His baby was born without any complications. His promise to God exist with him taking care of orphans and unwanted babies in the area of Nha Trang. Phuc offers an alternative to young mothers thinking about having an abortion. Phuc offers his home to the babies that he would care and love them free of charge.

Today his home is filled with babies that would have otherwise would have met another outcome. Phuc is a hospital worker in Nha Trang. He provides burials for babies that had been aborted. All on his own accord and driven with a promise to keep with God.

Phuc takes care of 16 infants in the home with his wife. He gets assistance from family and friends. We heard about Phuc through our friends in Nha Trang. We purchased approximately 40 lbs of baby formula on our visit with Phuc. A supply that should last several months.

Please stop by if you are in the area.

I watched this story on BBC World and I was moved by this man's capacity to love and give beyond himself. In a world were so much selfishness seem to rain supreme it was a heart felt gift to see love bear fruit in such a motivational and inspirational way. Tong Phuoc Phuc is a great man I was moved beyond words by the work that he does.

I was looking for this story on the BBC world website but couldn't find it. I searched the internet and found it on your blog. Thanks for sharing. I will put a link to this story on my blog.

Stay blessed.
