In a community in JB, there lived a lonely old man, everyone called him Uncle Fu (pseudonym). Uncle Fu is 73 years old, he was fortunate enough to complete high school at a time when many children dropped out of school and not many people could complete their studies. He is very talkative and loves to share.
Uncle Fu's living in an old house left by his parents. The layout of one bedroom and a living room is enough for him who lives alone. Usually, he keeps the house neat and tidy. Three simple meals a day, a bowl of white rice and an egg.
Uncle Fu is a cancer survivor, however the operation had caused his left eye almost went total blind, so he relies heavily on his right eye to see the world. He is a photographer, so he recorded the world with his camera and earns his living by teaching photography. Now, he needs to use eye drops every day to keep his right eye from going total blind.
It would be a good thing for contented Uncle Fu who is in his sunset years, to be able to continue to live a simple life like this.
However, in year 2020 following after the implementation of movement control order, his students gradually decreased in number, the income he received barely covered his expenses, and the eye drops he used daily began to be unaffordable.
Uncle Fu's life is like an unfortunate capsized ship in the middle of the sea, struggling desperately in the sea hoping to grab a piece of driftwood to keep him alive. The emergence of 7979 Holistic Care Station at JB New Life Church was like a piece of driftwood grabbed by Uncle Fu. The church came to know Uncle Fu through a sister and they helped him to apply for 7979 Crisis Intervention Fund.
On each visit, the church brought some food supplies for Uncle Fu. Sometimes eggs, sometimes rice, and sometimes cooking oil. Some brothers and sisters even donated money to pay for Uncle Fu’s eye drops.
"Speaking of gratitude, I've been living this way for years. A bowl of rice and an egg every day, that's enough..." He said with a smile as church brothers and sisters shared 《The Descend of Blessings》 with him. Entering his sunset years, he is no longer obsesses with many things in life. He feels grateful as long as he is alive and healthy.
After this "capsized" incident, Uncle Fu's life had a drastic change. The encountering with church, had led him to Jesus and prayed the sinner’s prayer. "I do not know who God is, I also don’t know Jesus, but I see Jesus in all of you." Uncle Fu shared this with one of the volunteers. This encourages brothers and sisters in the church to use practical actions in caring for others, when they want others to feel the love of Jesus!
