Kwok Kit Siu, age 35, was a member of Faith Bible Church @ Hope Center. Two weeks ago, he lost his battle with cancer. This young brother made an impact on our congregation.
See our eulogy below for him from our brother, Terry.
For those that don’t know me, my name is Terry Woo. I met Kit a little over a year ago. He knows a mutual friend of ours Eliza. Eliza is good friends with my fiancé and they asked me to meet up with Kit and bring him to church. Coincidentally, I happened to be teaching the Christianity 101 class at our church at the time and I offered to bring him to church and class. That was how we met.
Over the next several months I got to know Kit through this class. I can’t tell you how much of a joy it was to see Kit so enthused about Jesus Christ and wanting to learn more about the Bible. I know he worked so hard at his career in finance but all of that was out the door. In is the new Kit who didn’t want to waste any room in his brain on unimportant things. All he wanted to do was learn more about the Bible and God and enjoy the fellowship of his brothers and sisters. When I first met Kit, he had been diagnosed with cancer for over a year and was already having difficulty walking and moving due to the side effects from his treatments. When he was at church, I don’t think you could tell. He was so positive and always had a smile on his face. In fact in his testimony on the day of his baptism, he said through knowing God he found much more joy, happiness, and most importantly, in his battle with cancer, more hope.
Brothers, and Sisters, I encourage you. I know we are all sad about Kit’s passing, but the Lord that Kit believes in, that we believe in, is listening. Psalm 56 talks about God bottling your tears. And I believe the hope that Kit was speaking about in his testimony is not a long life on Earth, but everlasting life.
I do believe that things happen for a reason. That’s why I’m very grateful to be here to be baptized. Amen.”
Thirty of us joined his family and friends to testify how Kit inspired us to live life to the fullest and make every moment count. We will miss Kit. Please keep praying for his family. He is the only child in his family.
