You’re now resting from all earthly labors and enjoying your reunion with your loved ones ( your wife,mom,dad, brothers, sisters, nephews) who had gone before you, but the most joyous moment of all for you was to see your Maker face to face. You have stepped into heaven and enjoying eternally life with Jesus. I am so thankful that you had instilled your faith in all of your children . Your faithfulness I saw in you, mon and your mother has kept me to be faithful and anchored my faith in the word of our Lord Jesus Christ. We pray that the Holy Spirit will continue to guide us in His Path so we can nurture this faith in all our children and many more generations to come

As any earthly separation, many times I can’t help myself from the grief of missing you, knowing that you are no longer here with us.

Thank you for all the sacrifices you made, the love you had shown, even though they sometimes being demonstrated through disciplines. But without them we would not all became the persons we are now. “As Proverb 13:24 Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them”. We did not know then but we know now.

I remembered your famous saying to mom when you have no words to correct our attitudes when we were young “Để cho chúng nó lúc có con rồi biết’.
We has used and repeated your phrase many times

We love you and miss you very much and we will surely see you and all our loved ones one day.

As King David said when the son he had with Bathsheba died. “My son will not return to me but I will go to him”

You will not return to us but we will surely come to see you one day.
Good bye Dad!

Mr. Vu Van Binh (1928-2019)

[Translated from Vietnamese]

Mr. Vu Van Binh was born on April 20th, 1928 in Thuong Trang, Village of An Lao, and province of Kien An, Vietnam. His father, Mr. Vu Van Tieu, was a Canton Chief in 1923 and his mother, Mrs. Phan Thi Dap, a housewife. Both deceased in the year 1935 and 1993, respectively. Mr. Vu ranked third in the family of five children, three boys and two girls.

Life Journey

Mr. Vu lived in Thuong Trang at the age of seven, then his father passed away in 1935. He left Thuong Trang with his mother, two brothers and two sisters to Hai Phong, Vietnam. He continued his education there and also attended trade school to become a tailor. In October 1952, he married Mrs. Nguyen Thi Dung. Together they had nine children, four boy and five girls. All of their children married, and had 13 paternal grandchildren, 16 maternal grandchildren, and 11 great grandchildren.

In 1954, because of political warfare, Northern and Southern Vietnam divided. Mr. Vu, his wife and his eldest son moved from Hai Phong to Saigon in the Southern part of Vietnam, now Ho Chi Minh City. He and his family lived in Saigon, in the town called Nguyen Kim, district 10 and built their life there.

In 1962, there was a big fire that spread and burned down many homes; his house included. Again, he and his family moved to Ton Dan, district four and opened up a tailor shop named Thanh Binh.

A few days before April 30th, 1975, when Saigon was about to fall into the Communist regime, Mr. Vu and family fled Vietnam onto a Korean warship and sailed away for 18 days. In spite of the difficulty of this journey, Mr. Vu always trusted in God to protect him and his family. The ship arrived in Busan, South Korea. Thank the Lord for His love and His providence that He had kept Mr. Vu and his family safe. During the 4 months in the refugee camp, Mr. Vu had served the Lord faithfully. He opened up a training class to teach people how to sew and mend clothing and used this opportunity to witness the gospel of Jesus Christ. Many believed and accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior.

The legacy he left behind for his children, paternal and maternal grandchildren, great grandchildren, and ultimately for his church, is to trust in God wholeheartedly until the Lord’s returns. On September 5th, 1975, he and his family immigrated to Toronto, Canada from Busan, South Korea. In March 2010, his wife passed away peacefully to be with the Lord. Mr. Vu resided with his 4th son’s family in Brampton until July 4th, 2019.

Journey of his faith

In 1935, before Mr. Vu’s father’s last breath, the pastor came to pray and his father accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior. After that, his mother and the whole family followed Christ and worshipped God. Mr. Vu served the Lord whole-heartedly. He never missed a day without having family devotion when he lived in Vietnam and in Canada. He attended the Vietnamese Church of Khanh Hoi, Vietnam for a few years. Then he served as a treasurer at the Vietnamese Church of Ton Dan, district 4 from 1964 until 1975. From 1975 to 2019, he was a member of the Vietnamese Alliance Church in Toronto, Canada.

When his health still allowed, he went out witnessing the Gospel of Christ to unbelievers as Matthew 28:19 commands: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."

Thank the Lord that Mr. Vu never experienced any serious illnesses. The last few weeks of his life on earth, his body started to get weaker but the Lord extended his day until July 4th, 2019. Mr. Vu passed away at home in his sleep peacefully. It’s such a blessing now that he is truly with God. He followed Christ all his life, and devoted it to serve God. He set such a good example for all his children and grandchildren. From his pure heart, his sincere faith, his leadership, to his family, now he can finally say, along with St. Paul in 2nd Timothy 4:7-8a:
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day”.

And he could also say aloud with St. John in Revelation 14:13:
Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on. “Yes,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them.”

The Lord has called his faithful and beloved servant to rest in His heavenly kingdom. Amen.
