I Prayed have prayed

Decades ago an atheist Chinese student miraculously departed China, came to America, was born again and then pioneered technology restoring sight to millions worldwide. He did it by inventing a technology that both preserves human life while utilizing the miracle of scar less healing in the amniotic sac encasing pre-born babies.

A national publication recently honored him as a cultural hero “changing our world”. Listen to the podcast interview at the end of this article.

I’ve had the privilege of enjoying a wonderful friendship with this wonderful man of God whose story brings inspiration and encourages perseverance during these perilous and polarizing times.


Losing Sight in My Left Eye

20 years ago I was shocked by the sudden loss of sight in my left eye. It happened as my wife and I were transitioning from Atlanta to the Nashville area for our next assignment from God. Dr. Ming Wang, a world famous eye surgeon whose Wang Vision Institute serves  people from across America and abroad (including well known personalities like Dolly Parton, Kenny Chesney and others) took me under his care and assisted me then as he does to this very day.

With the release of his inspirational book, “From Darkness to Sight” and his forthcoming film Sight starring Greg Kinnear, it’s obvious to me that God wants to use his incredible life story to bring hope to multitudes in this turbulent time.

Sight – Film for Such a Time as This

Recently my wife and I had the privilege to attend a private screening of the film Sight which chronicles Dr. Wang’s amazing journey from China to America. It reenacts his struggles with poverty, racial discrimination and his pursuit to become a world renowned eye surgeon.

During the time of uprising in his homeland where millions of students were taken off to labor camps, God providentially provided a way for Ming to find a pathway that eventually led him to America. He arrived as a young man who could speak rudimentary English and all he had was $50 in his pocket!

The movie beautifully depicts the importance of lifestyle evangelism as a humble man reached out to Ming to serve him practically and eventually shared the transformative message of the gospel. Facing trials, discrimination and against all odds, Ming drew upon the strength of God to persevere, work hard and eventually became a world-class laser eye surgeon and philanthropist with degrees from Harvard and Massachusetts Institute of Technology MD/PhD.

In these polarized times where theories abound propagandizing people and our children to believe they are “victims” and we’re either “oppressed or oppressors,” Dr. Wang’s story illustrates the wonderful opportunities afforded us in America to achieve and be self-reliant rather than look to “Big Government” socialist giveaways!

Finding Common Ground

Weeks ago Dr. Ming Wang was the featured speaker here in the state of Tennessee for a “Reagan Day Dinner” with 200 participants including our distinguished, dedicated Christian US Senator, Marsha Blackburn.  She shared for five minutes then Dr. Wang spoke for an hour on a theme that is very dear to his heart and extremely needed for our nation today: “Appreciating Freedom in America by Finding Common Ground.”

He spoke eloquently and humbly that no matter what our ethnic background, race or religion, as human beings we all have much in common – our love for our family, freedom and the desire that our children prosper as we enjoy peace, prosperity and stability in our land.

Ming has gone through a lot including poverty, dictatorship, and racial discrimination but he did not despair but persevered never giving up hope! He challenges all Americans to seize our opportunities in this “land of the free and home of the brave.” Hundreds of millions worldwide do not enjoy what we easily take for granted and it’s time to go forward as a people breaking the cycle of victimization, dependency and hyper polarization.

Saving Life and Sight

Recent “Heartbeat Bill” advances in Texas and 15 other states along with the upcoming Supreme Court hearing of the Mississippi case protecting the sanctity of human life keeps center stage the critical issue of protecting unborn babies in the womb. The new slogan, “Abortion is Beautiful” leads us further into Nazi totalitarian territory and is grievous to Almighty God!

The Bible tells us, “Open your mouth for the speechless in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. Open your mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy” (Prv. 31:8-9).

Dr. Ming Wang cares deeply for the “least of these” little ones whom Jesus told us to care for in His place. His movie portrays the phenomenal adventure God gave him that led to a discovery saving the sight of millions around the globe. His invention of amniotic membrane contact lenses [AMCL] is now a powerful example of  sight restoring biotechnology that uses tissue from the discarded amniotic sac while miraculously preserving all life!

To date, it has been used by tens of thousands of eye doctors throughout the world in nearly every nation, and millions have had their eyesight restored!

Here’s the deal: The message and movie of Dr. Ming Wang is critically needed today. Can you help me in identifying churches and organizations where he can share his presentation in-person or on Zoom?

There’s no cost to the presentation! It will certainly help promote the film and life-changing message during these days where multitudes are discouraged, needing light in the darkness.

Let’s rally, help our brother and by so doing bless multitudes! If you’d like to take advantage of this wonderful free opportunity to have Dr. Wang share in-person or on zoom for 30-45 minutes with your church, ministry or organization, make contact with him at: [email protected] or through me at [email protected]

Lord,thank you for the medical innovation given to us,..and that Dr Wang sought you in repentance, receiving salvation. We ,Lord,are so blessed by his compassion for humanity,and for other medical professionals as well that have remained diligent to stand against tyranny.
I also lift up to you ,by extension,our current tyranny that prevents us from being treated for our medical infirmities- due to the insidious manipulation of using the covid tyranny to intentionally harm us- Lord please allow us to be returned to being treated by our doctors in a routine and safe way- not fearing for our health or safety due a medical establishment that is being strong armed by global elitist’s through layered channels of globalist control, unless this is the course from now on that you have planned for us,-it is hard to know ,as voices of prophecy and even some pastors are declaring that America shall be saved.. Please silence the coercive wrangling of, and confused verbal prescriptions of conflicting advice on the safety devices and serums and natural treatments ,as well, that we are encouraged to try to understand..please embolden doctors to not acquiesce in even the most hair thin sliver of acceptance of cowering acceptance of any narrative of manipulation.. embolden doctors with even frightening courage,as You are,..THE WILD MAN GOD,..not the timid, retiring, kowtowing to tyrants- God..LET US BE LIKE YOU- OH LORD AND GOD ALMIGHTY..In The Mighty And Precious Name of Yeshua- AMEN

Abba Father, thank You for Ming Wang’s life, which was written in Your book and ordained for him before his first day was even lived. Thank You for giving all of us “common ground” in our Savior, Jesus Christ. You do not show favoritism. I pray You would advance this movie and message, changing hearts and minds in each presentation and I also pray a precious blessing on this man of God. Thank You Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen

Romans 2:11 For God does not show favoritism.
Psalm 139:16. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all my days were written in Your book and ordained for me before one of them came to be.

Dear Heavenly Father, it always does my heart good to hear of scientists who come to realize Your truth and Your role as Creator. Indeed Lord, it is telling how many scientists in some of the most cutting-edge (for we humans anyway) scientific fields like quantum physics and astrophysics as well as advanced fields of mathematics are coming to realize Your reality. It is also telling how so many lesser scientific minds try to sweep such views under the rug and instead fill the heads of the masses with false narratives that in no way take account of Your divine design. Thank you Lord for opening the eyes of some of these scholars and may their conversions and revelations become known to the world at large. In Jesus precious name I pray O’ Lord, Amen.

    I think you would enjoy Eric Metaxas new book, Is Atheism Dead? The first section covers scientific proof for a Creator and the second section covers archaeological discoveries which validate the Bible’s accuracy. Enjoyable reading, definitely not dry or boring!
