Chritmas Night With the Parish Priest

His work calendar is always maxed out, yet the Parish Priest was able to squeeze in Christmas dinner with the girls. This year has been a most memorable and meaningful year for the girls. The older girls went to confession and received the holy communion for the first time. One of the younger children, although only newly baptized was extremely eager to learn more about the Catholic teachings. This past November, she received second prize for a contest titled 'I study the bible' across the dioceses of Phnom Penh.

Welcome Sister Mary

On December 12th, 2012, One Body Village Vietnam was very honor to welcome Sister Mary - sister of St. Francis of Assisi of Singapore and Sister Anna – who has worked in Malaysia. The difference in language was not able to hinder the interesting conversation in that day. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the interpreting of Sister Anna, Sister Mary shared and conversed enthusiastically and sentimentally with unfortunate children. Sisters not only deeply cared their habits and their dreams but also encouraged all children in studying and working hard for the promising future.

We appreciate Sister Mary and Sister Anna for your useful advice and for your visiting. We are looking forward to seeing Sistera again in the near future.

Workers and the Language of Love

An old article...

"Have you ever thought that both of you are Kinh people but you can't understand the other's language?". This question was asked to start a seminar about the topic love before marriage in the apartment area at Thanh Loc Ward, District 12 with the audience of about 200 workers. The seminar was held by The Worker Department-Ho Chi Minh City Communist Youth Union, cooperated with the Bridge to Happiness Center (Trung Tâm Nhịp Cầu Hạnh Phúc) on May 25th, 2012.The speakers were Ms. Pham Thi Thuy (National Academy of Public Administration) and Father. Nguyen Ba Thong.

Up to now so many volunteers have come to OBV family to help the children. However, the fact that they live in a very faraway location of a new district causes lots of inconveniences of time and place. That’s why many volunteers can’t go on and might give up.

A Specialized Speech in Da Nang

Da Nang – The beautiful city welcomed us by a mild sunny day, took this chance, we had a short city tour to discover the people, the land here. We were surprised because of the well-organized city it is. And we had the same feeling when we arrived Tran Quang Khai secondary school, Hoa Vang, Da Nang.

The students in grade 8th and 9th have very good knowledge about the genders, general understanding about their body, and how to protect themselves, the students were interested with the information we provided. With some of them, we believed the stories we shared, they had heard, discussed before but they had not yet had a chance to meet in person with a specialist and listened to the sharing straight forward like this.

The boys and girls who are in the teenages have so many naughty tricks made us struggled sometimes, but once we started with the serious issues they listened very carefully, because they understood that kind of information is important for them.
