Sin Por Por is an elderly lady living alone in a public housing estate. We have visited her on a monthly basis for the past four and a half years. Last year, she began complaining of progressive blurred vision. Since the public hospitals have a long waiting list even for an eye examination, we managed to set up an appointment with a Christian ophthalmologist for her. She was diagnosed with macular degeneration and cataracts in both eyes.
According the doctor's assessment, cataract surgery on her left eye was required to improve her eyesight. Sin Por POr consented to the operation, and it was performed on July 18. It proved to be successful and her vision has since improved.
I have indeed seen the love and grace of God showered upon Sin Por Por. I am especially grateful for all the people who have contributed to helping her: her neighbor Mrs. Leung and the brothers and sisteres from Island ECC for their continuous care for Sin Por Por, the ophthalmologist for giving her a generous discount on the surgery; and Hope of the City for providing the financial assistance.
It has been an honor to partner with these others and to be an instrument of God's grace. Most importantly, Sin Por Por is now ope to the gospel and willing to participate in church activities. Praise the Lord!
