Daddy, please do not separate us!

 

“This house is our house, the hardship that our father have found”

With the ambition to rescue the youth that have been forced into sex slavery, at the same time create the conditions to bring happiness to the children. Although in the hands of its founder has nothing, but he is now ready to roll up his sleeves for action.  First off is to rent a house for the children, set a requirement so the children will continue to arrive at school, give a small amount of money for food and neccessities in the beginning phase, then…slowly figure out.  The founder (Father Thong) often say:  "I am not rich, but I don’t want my children suffer, because they have suffered enough”.  Because of that, the children that live here are more stable materially and spiritually.

OBV House - Our children have grown up

 

"Em" and "Bé" were hanging out with OBV house

According to OBV news, our daughter, H.D (aka Bé), has passed the entrance exam and has been accepted into the College of Technology and Industrial Management. This is the story about our oldest daughters, Bé and her older sister (aka Em). They are reintegrating into the communities.

"Bé" is an average student with sociable temperament, innocence, and thoughtful.  She does not know when to rest and relax. She is currently waiting to pass the second round of admission to Saigon University. If she does not pass the second round, she will go forward with the alternative university. At that time, we will help her financial assistance for her schooling.

The reward for the effort

She is the first child of OBV to entered college. Besides going to school, she spends her free time working as a receptionist for a little coffee shop. She also tutors children in kindergarten during her spare time.

During her “father’s” (Fr. Martino) last mission trip during New Year, he saw how unsafe it was for her to have to go to work after a long day at school and to come home late with an old electric bike.

Happiness

Papa Thong visiting the OBV children in Vietnam

 

“Papa will be the wings that take me to far places…. Papa will be the leaf that protect you for the rest of my life”

 

Perhaps you are already on the plane flying back home; we started to sing the song because we miss you so much; our eyes are stinging from the tears. What destiny has allowed us to meet you? Maybe there is some good fortune in unfortunate things. We know we are truly blessed to have you in our lives; to care for us as your own and to build a bridge to happiness for us.

The 2nd of February is another day that our “father” and all of his volunteers came to re-visited us, the children of OBV, for the last time before returning back to the United States. Most of us was at school and only some of us are home. Thus, in the afternoon, we all finally made it home one after another and gathered inside our little house filled with love and laughter in the atmosphere.

Thoughts after New Year

“Try to the best of your ability, the results is up to God…”

I cannot recall since when I had memorized this saying “right eye twitches means bad things, and when the left eye twitches it means good luck.” Although I am not superstitious but after several occasions; I started to notice. Once the first three days of the New Year passed, I started to prepare for the arrival of the children, suddenly, my right eye twitched continuously. I wonder what could happen this time.

Story of a "special class"

"Special class"

 

Every Saturday, I have the chance to visit OBV house to share with OBV children some practical life lessons and survival skills. Each week, each lesson leaves me with a different impression and through that I am able to understand them and love them more. One of the lessons that was quite memorable was about “the value of cooperation”.

The ponderous things

 

Every time I receive a phone call from my “colleagues”, these two lines are always the conversation starter, “how are you?” and “how are the kids?” As usual I always respond quickly with “I’m good, after 60 years and still running great”. But the response to the second question, I never seem to have a good answer; because it has never been smooth. That is the thing that I ponder the most.
