About the Author:
A refugee from Vietnam, Phuong came to Erie in February 1980 with her parents, 4 siblings and maternal grandmother after escaping communism in May 1979.  Their miraculous 11 days survival in the Pacific Ocean on a tiny wooden fishing boat was an act of God’s grace and mercy.  She grew up with an awareness of God but didn't know Him personally until she received a second chance at life in her mid-twenties.   Now, her passion is to encourage and help people discover the healing power and life changing truths of Jesus Christ.  Phuong resides in Green Township with her husband Scott and two boys, Isaiah and Caleb.
