This morning, many people around the world woke up to the news that American President Donald Trump and his wife tested positive for COVID-19.
One Chinese family took a special approach that we can all learn from. From the video it can be assumed that the parents do not speak English, but they wanted to let the US President know that they are praying for him, his health, and the health of his family.
My family have just prayed for Mr. president and his family, begging Lord to heal Mr. president and his family, and beg God to give Mr. president and his family strength. May God always be with him and his family. pic.twitter.com/LOy0jiETjs

Because of the name of the Twitter user, the family might be from Shandong. Twitter is blocked in China, but can be accessed with a VPN to help navigate around China’s firewall.
The daughter spoke for the family and her heart felt wishes were powerful. Her sweet words were those of a loving Christian who wants to bring love, peace, and healing to all those that suffer from pain. If this family is in China or returns to China, they could be taking a risk to post this video and reveal that they have had access to Twitter.
America and China have not been on good terms in the last several months. The rhetoric between the two nations has been reaching a feverish pitch, but this sweet Chinese Christian family reminds us that God is a God of love and His love transcends borders, race, language, and national identity.
This simple video should remind us all that we are to see eachother as children of God first and not as enemies wishing death on others.
