Is it a blessing to live for over a hundred years? Yauking came to Hong Kong alone and worked as a housemaid. She lost the ability to take care of herself and needed intensive care from nursing home as she grew old. Despite she wants to die badly, her Christian belief saved her from committing suicide. Are we or Jesus the one to define the value of life when one no longer has the ability to do so?
When I first met Yau King, she told me she has two “ones” – one hundred and one years old. However, she asks for death every day and wonders why Jesus doesn’t listen to her prayer. Yau King spent most of her time working as a house maid, and now she can only lie on bed and let others to take care of her. Can you imagine how downcast she is? She once told me, “Life doesn’t always go smoothly. There must be ups and downs.” You might actually find her simple minded and lovely. It's not hard to cheer her up.
