Continually Caring

Looking across the wall behind the Mustard Seed Mission. Mr. Ay-Chung who lives in the house behind the wall is already prepared. He stares at the road and wonders is the Mustard Seed Mission white van on the road yet? Are the social workers coming to get him? When every time the station open time comes, he always excites to see is the car coming?

Mr. Ay-Chung's house is next to the Mustard Seed Mission building. There is only a wall between two buildings.

Mr. Ay-Chung has a stroke for nine years. Since he had a stroke at 58 years old, he lost his ability to walk outside by himself. Usually, he doesn’t go outside and sit in front of the TV at the weekdays. Except, he needs to have a Hemodialysis treatment at the hospital on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. After a 70 years old female volunteer, who is from the caring team at The Mustard Seed Mission, encourages him passionately. He can finally have the courage to go outside and join the activities held by the team.
