We love Tim & Kari

Our dearest brother, Tim Hsiung, is resting in peace in God’s loving hands on 8/8/2018. Thank you for all your prayers, love, and support to their family during this difficult journey.
Please keep supporting Kari and their two children chiefly with prayers, and financial support of any amount if able.
「If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.」1 Corinthians‬ ‭12:26-27‬

「若一個肢體受苦,所有的肢體就一同受苦;若一個肢體得榮耀,所有的肢體就一同快樂。 你們就是基督的身子,並且各自作肢體。」哥林多前書‬ ‭12:26-27‬

This campaign is created by sisters and brothers in Christ to support and help our beloved brother Tim Hsiung and his family (sister Kari and their two little ones) while they are battling with brain cancer. Tim and Kari have been with ECC for many years and they have been serving faithfully in different roles.

這個GoFundMe是由一群主內的兄弟姐妹共同發起,用以支持與幫助我們心愛的弟兄熊勤文(Tim Hsiung)和他的家人(Kari 姊妹和其兩個小孩),一同在腦癌奮戰的過程中經歷神的恩典。 Tim和Kari多年在ECC的各個職份

On June 15, 2017 he was feeling extremely unwell and ended up rushing to Emergency Department. He was transferred to Swedish cherry hill hospital the next day. The exams revealed tumors in his brain and he was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer. Immediately, Tim was hospitalized for surgery.

2017年6月15日,Tim因為非常不適而進入急診室,第二天被轉移至Swedish Cherry Hill Hospital,檢查中發現他的大腦中有腫瘤,被診斷為4期腦癌並且因緊急手術而馬

Everything changed for Tim and his family since then. Our hearts ache to see what this family has to suffer in this difficult time. Many families at ECC came together with broken hearts to stand with their family along the journey and earnestly prayer for them. A WeChat group was simultaneously created with more than a hundred of brothers and sisters where we continually pray for them everyday and to keep updates on Tim’s situation.


Tim had to quit his job as soon as he started this hard battle with cancer. While Tim and Kari focus their energies on the treatments and taking care of two kids,
their house & car mortgages and living expenses have made the situation even more difficult. Their families have been graciously paying for their mortgage since June 2017. It has become a point that they’ve started thinking about selling their house and moving to Colorado to stay in their sibling’s to ease the financial burden.

因著接受相關治療,Tim辭掉了工作,將精力集中在治療和照顧兩個孩子,這也使得他們的房屋貸款、汽車貸款和生活費用支出成為重擔。 他們的家人自2017年6月以來一直為他們支付房屋和汽車貸款。經濟

However, we know that would not help with the treatments Tim is currently under with medical resources available here in Seattle. Many brothers and sister are worried and have willingly offer to support them financially, we decided to stepped in and finally persuaded them to agree with creating this campaign to help bring their family some relief from their financial pressures.


Those who know Tim know that he is such a wonderful brother and faithful servant in Christ, and he is such a loving husband and father to his family. We’ve heard Tim say, more than once,
“I want to get better continue to support my family. I want to see my girls growing up and going to school and getting married...”


We love this family dearly and we want to support them as much as we can both prayerfully and financially so he can continue the treatments in Seattle, get better and continue to serve. We praise the Lord for his mercy and grace.

Love and Many blessings
