In a world where it seems like bad news is always at the forefront, it is always refreshing to hear stories of hope and resilience. This is the story of Suki Wong, an eleven-year-old stateless child, and her father Alan Wong, a stroke patient. Their story is a testament to the power of faith, love, and community in the face of adversity.

Suki Wong’s story first came to light when it went viral on social media in May 2022. She was born in Malaysia, but her mother was Vietnamese, and her parent’s marriage was unregistered. Her plight as a stateless child and the difficulties that she and her father faced tugged at the hearts of many people. Their situation was made even more challenging by the fact that Suki’s mother had passed away due to tuberculosis.

Thankfully, help was on the way. The Welfare Outreach Ministry reached out to Suki and her father. In addition to providing financial aid and emotional support, Pastor James regularly visited them, offering words of comfort and hope.

It was during one of these visits that Suki and her father received the greatest gift of all. Joyce Hooi and Pastor James shared the gospel with them, and Alan Wong accepted the Lord as his Saviour. Both he and Suki found comfort in their newfound faith.

Their journey is a reminder that, even in the darkest of times, hope can be found. Suki’s application for citizenship is currently in progress, and there is a positive outlook on its progress. It is evident that the grace of God is at work in their lives, touching the hearts of those who have reached out to help them.

The story of Suki and Alan is an inspiration to all of us. It reminds us that, in the face of adversity, we must never lose hope. It teaches us that, as members of a community, we must come together to help those who are less fortunate. And it shows us that, through faith and the grace of God, even the most challenging circumstances can be overcome.
