Mission trip Nov. 2012 - Part 2: As our own

Father Martino and mission trip group with OBV children

This is a reflection post written by Vy Dinh. Vy Dinh is a volunteer usually helping OBV to organize many Awareness night. She joined the group during the mission trip in November 2012 and these are some of her thoughts about it.A bulletin board in the kitchen is decorated with a calendar and a long list of chores for the children living there. On Monday, X and Y takes care of cooking while Z takes care of the bathrooms. It appears that the duties rotate for each child so that no one gets stuck with the same chore each month and everyone picks up range of domestic skills.

This is a reflection post written by the daughter of one of the OBV’s beneficiary named Vy. Vy joined the group during the mission trip in November 2012 and these are some of her thoughts about it.

 

This is my first trip to Cambodia. Being a careless person that I am, I rarely ever pay any attention to any charity work and I must confess that I only joined this trip for personal reasons. I began the trip forcefully and with my usual inattentive attitude. But throughout the trip, the things that I witnessed and experienced in this country caused me to look at things differently.

Words cannot describe

Dr. Thanh Tam with Vietnamese children in Cambodia

How can I possibly share with you the experience and emotions that I have gone through during my 8 days/3 countries trip.  

I am not a stranger to poverty, hunger, suffering, loneliness, pain, illnesses, tears, and separation.  I knew before the trip that what I will see would be heart-breaking.  I know that as a woman and a mother, I will be touched by helpless, innocent, suffering children, that I will cry easily by the sights of their outstretched skinny little hands begging, or their ribs-showing bodies sleeping on sidewalks next to their street vendored mother.  Little did I know that what I have seen, especially those eyes, would stay in my mind deeper and stronger.
