Where the Wind Leads
Full Product Description
At three years of age Vinh Chung and his family of ten 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 familys 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. His siblings hold five masters degrees and five doctorates. This is Vinhs familys extraordinary journey.
The book includes sixteen pages of black and white photos of the rescue, difficult first years, and the family today. And at the authors request, all royalties due to the author will go to World Vision for their relief efforts.
Where the Wind Leads by Vinh Chung was published by Thomas Nelson in April 2014. The ISBN for Where the Wind Leads is 9780849947568.
