Happiness is coming

Working for One Body Village, having a day off was a luxury that we couldn't afford. Regardless of the circumstances, date, or time, Father Martino and Mother Ngoc were there whenever the children needed help.

Mother Ngoc was sick. She had had a high fever and displayed other symptoms of the flu for over a month. She was pale, her voice was hoarse. But when I reported of a child in desperate need of help from One Body Village, she was the first to spring into action.

It was a very early morning start, yet we -- a child, her family and myself -- would not arrive to OBV's gates til the afternoon.

The Angel

It was Dr. Ehum's second time in Vietnam and Cambodia, to visit the beloved girls he had met last year. A Korean-American with his own medical practice in the USA, he closed for half a month to spend precious time with the children.

During his stay, while short, it seemed he didn't get much sleep, with most if not all of this time spent with the girls, whether it was playing with them in the front yard, hanging out in the community room, waking them up and walking them to school, helping them with their studies, participating in household chores and eating meals with them. When the girls slept, he patrolled the area to make sure the girls were safe and well rested.

Sharing before the trip

an old article...

For me, this Christmas, Tet holidays and my birthday came earlier than usual! It is not because of the warm weather or the passing of time, but for the human heart is blooming! Do you know why? I would like to share with you some emails and letters I have just received:

- Mail #1: (after my evening flights were informed)
I wonder if you still remember me, but I still remember you thanks to your writings, your prayers and advice that helpfully dissuaded me from killing my own child. At present I am very happy thanks to God’s blessings. When I decided to keep my child I did not think I would be as happy as I am today. My child is now 4 months old and so cute. I have been back to work. I would like to share my happiness to you and please do not forget to pray for me. I always pray that God will bless you on your journeys.
I have seen your travel plan for January. I wish I could meet you once, but what a pity I cannot have that opportunity! I wish you a happy birthday!
With joy

Love until the heart’s last beat.

An old article...

For parishioners, especially young ones in the parish of Chợ Cầu (address 30/7 Nguyễn Văn Quá, 12th District 12, Ho Chi Minh City), the occasion of New Year 2013 was a wonderful time when they can to attend the preaching session of Father Martino Nguyễn Bá Thông. For Fr. Martino, this was his fifth time to present the journey of 2013. The audience gave him a warm welcome.

Fr. Martino’s session started at 7:30 PM. His team comprised of volunteers from U.S.A. The room was filled with songs, games, and chats about Fr. Martino and his topics. There were first-time attendees showing their excitement and curiosity.
