A young boy named Tuan, who came to Singapore National University Hospital for treatment of leukemia.
However his leukemia was terminal and the family brought him back to Vietnam to continue to be cared for.
“I hope you will be encouraged when hearing the testimony of Tuan’s mom.
Below is his mom’s testimony in his funeral:
His mom testified that around few months before his death, while he was losing consciousness, his doctor said he would pass away within 2 days. Suddenly, however, he got up and said to his parents: “Mommy, daddy, believe in Jesus Christ, you will be saved and go to Heaven! I ought to have been taken away to Heaven with God, but I asked God to let me live for a few more months in order to witness Jesus Christ for you all and see you stand firm in the faith of the Lord Jesus Christ. Mommy, daddy, believe in Him, hurry!” Then his parents came to believe in Christ and he continued living for a few more months later. During that time, he continued sharing the Gospel with his relatives who came to visit him.
“With NUH doctors, his mother and his sister”
A few weeks ago, he said to his mom: “Mommy, I am praying to God to ask Him to bring me back to Heaven because I do see mommy and daddy have been strong in faith and grown in it and I am very satisfied and happy. So God has promised to me that He will bring me back soon.” A few days later, on the day of his death, he called his parents and sister to come near his bed and said: “Mommy, daddy, sister, tonight God will bring me back to Heaven. God has let me see the Heaven. It’s very nice and wonderful. So, in my funeral, you make a joyful party to see me off. Tell everyone in the funeral not to be sad but joyful because I go to the blessed Heaven not to the sorrowful Hell!” And then, at that night, he’s gone….
Brother, in his funeral, when hearing his mom’s testimony, I felt so touched and blessed in tears. Thank God so much for this wonderful story!!!
May God use this wonderful story to encourage all of us.

There is a place called heaven and there is a place called hell
In the bible, the Lord Jesus relates this event about heaven and hell:
Lu 16:19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.
27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house:
28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
“John 14:2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”
Below is the testimony of Dr Richard Teo before his final journey to heaven:
2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
