Alex first got involved with Hope of the City through a care group and he has been working with the elderly in Shek Kip Mei since. In serving, he has encountered many moments that have touched his heart, especially where Alex and his fellow volunteers are able to make a difference in someone else’s life. He found that the elderly do not always have people looking after them; so when the group visits, they are treated like family. Alex and Hope of the City work together to provide and care for specific needs because they see each person as an individual rather than a project. Through these relationships, they are able to break down the barriers to knowing Christ for the elderly and their immediate families, and in that way fulfill their missional calling.
