Deepening my Relationships - Samuel Lai

Updated: Oct 31, 2019

I started attending Youth Impact when I was in Secondary 2 and accepted Christ then. Growing up, I thoroughly enjoyed coming to church. When I was in my first year of Polytechnic, I lost my uncle to cancer. Months leading up to his death, I remember making daily trips to the hospital after school to spend time with him. The whole period was emotionally draining for my family and me. Ultimately, he lost the battle and passed away in 2014. This whole period, as well as his death, was very traumatic for me as I was very close to him. Over time, I thought I got over this period of grieving. But what I didn't understand was that this experience had left a hole in my heart. Two years later, my mom was diagnosed with cancer. I was so afraid to lose her the way I had lost my uncle.

But more than anything, there was a growing anger in my heart.
