41 Training in Tianjing in 1990

Dr. Zhang Xu once was a promising orthopedic surgeon in Anshan. But, it seems that just as his future was full of brightness, the disaster happened, which entirely changed his fate and faith. In May of 1997, he broke his neck in a diving accident while serving the Chinese government in the Republic of Yemen.

All of a sudden, his health was gone; all things that he had been striving for in the past years disappeared. He realized how fragile and flimsy a person’s strength is. At that time, what he had in mind only was grief, agony, anger and despair. He really could not find any reason to live in this world anymore.

42 translating JONI late night in ward bed

At this very moment, God began His work in Dr. Zhang Xu’s life. He gave Dr. Zhang a meaningful book through a Japanese therapist. It was a tattered, old copy of the Joni book in English. In the book, Dr. Zhang saw how Joni struggled out of the despair with the help of her family and Christian friends, and how she began to know God, and finally got a new life…

Dr. Zhang Xu’s heart was warmed by the story. He immediately began translating the book from English into Chinese, hoping that it would encourage more people with disabilities in China. In the hospital bed, Dr. Zhang dictated every word while his mother wrote them down. It was a miracle that they finished their first transcript in only 45 days.

Because of the book, Dr. Zhang Xu got to know the Bible and many Christian friends. He continually receives tremendous love, help, and support from them. Like Joni has experienced, Dr. Zhang saw God’s grace and Jesus’ redemption in his own life, for He saved his soul, which once had been full of selfishness and arrogance. In 2003, Dr. Zhang Xu and his mother were baptized in Hong Kong.

Dr. Zhang’s quadriplegic body never prevents him from dreaming. His dream is that he should lead a meaningful life. As a disabled doctor, he identifies his mission to work with people affected by disabilities in China.

In 2005, Dr. Zhang Xu started this disability ministry in his hometown – Bethesda Rehabilitation Ministry of Anshan.
