I was very excited to meet you for the first time at the Taiwan V.S Cuba game during the intercontinental cup. The news of this unfortunate accident two days later is unbelievable and has reminded me how life is so unpredictable. After me and my wife saw the unfortunate news from TV, we have been praying with people across the country. It was very exciting to learn from today’s newspaper that Mrs. Hu is now in a stable condition. Again, I want to wish Mrs. Hu a quick recovery, and please take care of yourself.”
