It has been a week since uncle Jesse and aunt Thuy visited us. We talked about them every day.  We missed them especially the nights that we practiced martial art together.

The most impression was uncle's sharing in Vietnamese "The main purpose for this trip, I want to teach you martial art, so that you can self-defense. After I leave, I will feel assurance that you can always be safe and be able to protect yourself".

A Roof of Love

The children of OBV Cambodia


The new home of the OBV children in Cambodia is located in the heart of Phnom Penh. With the hope that the children would have a better place to live which is fully equipped, and most importantly, for them to have an education in a very prominent school. Father Thong and the rest of the household did not mind the difficulty of finding a home, processing the birth certificates, and transfering school for the children; with the important contribution from the benefactors.

"How lovely these children are!”


OBV children in Cambodia

The children usually boast that many people have praised them for their obedience and loveliness.

I asked, "Whose lovable children are you?"

They answered, "Daddy Thong’s."

I said, "That’s right! Fr. Thong’s children are obedient and … what else?"

They replied in chorus, "and study hard."

Truly, Fr. Thong is away but, it seems that he is very close to the children because they talk about him every day.

I feel very proud that many people love my children because they are compliant and courteous. I hope that they are more and more obedient and have a better self-awareness of their study.

A bigger surprise!

The sisters from Vietnam and Cambodia attentively listened to one another

I took a two day trip to Vietnam for some "urgent business" – That doesn't mean that I didn't have time to visit our children – in both the Vietnam and Cambodia houses!

Thanks to Mekong Mother's grace


Children of OBV Cambodia

There was nothing new or special happened to our lives. However, I felt one thing and consider it as a grace of Mekong Mother. It was children who visit Mother after finishing school. I think Mother may feel touched when she sees her little children visit her everyday, so she gives grace for our family: all of the kids want to stay here. Ngoc Yen said: "I feel sorry for sister N.B, don't know how she is doing now."

With Mother's grace, we all feel warm in our famiy. We all pray and thank Mother everyday.


Translated by Tram Dang .  Original version in Vietnamese entitled "Nhờ Ơn Mẹ Mêkông"
