In Today’s Conversation with Leith Anderson, Vinh Chung shares his amazing refugee story of rescue and redemption.
Vinh was born in South Vietnam, just eight months after it fell to the communists in 1975. His family lost everything and fled the country when he was three and a half years old. They joined the legendary “boat people” and sailed into the South China Sea, even though they had no destination in mind.
Now as a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Medical School, Vinh runs a successful dermatology practice in Colorado Springs and serves on the board of World Vision.
In this podcast, you’ll be inspired as you hear Vinh share:
- How God used a small group of Christians to bring his family to the United States;
- How his family overcame cultural, economic and language barriers as they adjusted to life in small town Arkansas;
- His experience returning to Vietnam as an adult; and
- The parallels between today’s refugee crisis and his family’s experience.
Vinh also shares his family’s story in “Where the Wind Leads”, published by Thomas Nelson.
