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.
