Five-year-old dreams of heaven, confirms ‘Heaven is for Real’ account, Akiane’s painting of Jesus

November 2, 2016

By Mark Ellis

Wyn and Ton's wedding day

Wyn and Ton’s wedding day

Her husband’s untimely death from a rare form of cancer left her reeling. As she wallowed in grief, seeking God’s presence, her five-year-old had several vivid dreams about heaven (and hell) that buoyed her faith in the Lord.

Uyen “Wyn” Tran and her husband Ton lived in Australia for 30 years following their arrival from Vietnam. He was a mechanical engineer and she a pharmacist, fulfilling their dreams in a land of fresh opportunities, when they received unexpected and devastating news.

In 2013, Ton was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer growing in his nose and throat. He was given four months to live. Ton was not a believer during their eight years of marriage, but two months before he died he accepted Jesus as his Savior and Lord.

“By God’s grace he lived a year,” Wyn recounts. “When he passed away I was so devastated. I believed with all my heart he would be healed.” Some of their friends also believed he would be healed and even thought they saw a vision of him cured, testifying about his healing.

But it was not to be. On February 13, 2014 – one day before Valentine’s Day — he passed into the arms of Jesus.

Because of Wyn’s overwhelming confidence he would be healed, Ton’s passing undercut her faith. “I held on to that (his healing) with every ounce of belief. When he actually passed away I couldn’t figure it out. For three days I was in a daze,” she says.

“Please give me a dream or vision,” she cried out to God, desperate for His reassurance.

The dream came from an unlikely source – her five-year-old son, Kieran.

On Sunday morning Kieran woke up and came running into her room. “I saw dad and he was in heaven. It was beautiful mom. He was with God,” he said, breathlessly.

She asked Kieran what God looked like. “He had long hair and looked like Thor and he wore all white,” he said. Kieran had recently seen the film Thor, starring Chris Hemsworth.

He said Ton was also dressed in white, with white shoes and a white hat, which Wyn thinks may refer to a halo. “It was like it was dad’s birthday and everybody was singing and clapping to him.”

“After that mommy, I was in daddy’s room,” he continued.

At first, Wyn thought he meant his earthly room, but he was referring to Ton’s heavenly home. “I was sleeping beside daddy and when I woke up he fed me my favorite food and my favorite drink and we watched TV together,” he said.

“When I got up to leave three fairies stopped me. They were really tall,” he recounted.

“Why do you say they were fairies?” she asked.

“Because they had large white wings. Then God the Father held me,” Kirin said.

“How do you know it was God the Father?”

“He was invisible but I know He was God the Father.”

In a second dream, Kirin described his dad’s heavenly house as very large and brightly lit. “Daddy was with God,” he said. “I was sitting with God and told him a joke and he laughed.

“I saw two holes in his wrists. One hole is here and one is here. He was bleeding, mommy, but he wasn’t crying.”

Wyn was intrigued by his description. First, she never told her son about Jesus being crucified through his wrists. Secondly, she always thought the nails that crucified Jesus went through the palms of his hands. But as she researched this, she discovered there are many who believe the Romans may have crucified Jesus through his wrists – something her five-year-old would have no way of knowing.

In the dreams, Kirin also saw rainbows, animals, and “insects that don’t bite.” He said the light in heaven comes from God.

The thing he remembers most about heaven is the peace, a concept his mother never taught him about and thinks would be difficult for most children his age to grasp.

“I have never explained peace to him,” Wyn notes. “Everything he said was consistent with what Colton Burpo described in Heaven is for Real,” she said.

“It was like he read Colton’s book, but he never had.”

In the book there is a painting of Jesus by the talented young artist, Akiane, based on a vision she received from God. Colton Burpo said her painting was the closest to the Jesus he saw in his near-death experience of heaven.

Wyn showed Kirin several depictions of Jesus from the Internet and asked if any of them resembled Jesus. He shook his head each time an image came up, but when he saw Akiane’s painting he exclaimed, “Yes, that’s Jesus!”

“There is no doubt in my mind that that is Jesus,” Wyn says, marveling that several children around the world independently verify the image.

In his dream, Kieran also saw Satan fighting with God. He said Satan’s mouth had a long tongue like a snake. “They were fighting, mommy, and God won, and kicked Satan out of heaven,” Kieran told her.

In Kieran’s three dreams of eternity, the third dream was about hell. “It’s really hot and it stinks, just horrible,” Kieran told her. “There was a part that Jesus held my hand and said it was dangerous and he would not take me in there.”

Wyn recorded her son describing each of the three dreams. She is glad now, because he has already forgotten a few of the details.

She believes his story may bolster people’s faith. “I have used my story to tell people there is a heaven and hell,” she says.

“Heaven is for real and God is there!” she exclaims.
