To learn about the course, many attendees left home to the missionary station to attend Mass and the training of "Parenting Skills" at 4 AM on Sunday.
"To meet again", our group departed for the "Parenting Skills" training camp. The destination is Long Xuan Thoi, Can Tho - a missionary station. This trip was very special for me. Before I went, I was informed that people at the travel site are very poor with very limited literacy. After interacting with the local people, my mind had opened to experience a lot more things. In my opinion, local people are not "poor", even "very rich" on the other.
In the morning of Jan 21, 2014, the OBV (Open Body Village) office in Vietnam has welcomed Dr. An Duy Nguyen - President of the Organization - and his wife coming to visit and present the Chinese New Year gifts to all local staffs.
On the occasion, Dr. An Duy Nguyen also had a social meeting with Dr. John and Dr. Thuy Dan's spouse before they boarded the flight to Hanoi to continue their Mission trip in Vietnam.
From the introduction of Jesse - Doctor Thuy's husband - OBV Vietnam has a chance to meet Jesse's friends (classmates) from America.
After knowing Jesse has collaborated with OBV, they would like to visit to know more about OBV organization.
Received the news that Ms. Maria, grandmother of Ms. Ngo Thi Quynh Anh (employee of OBV at Vietnam), has recently passed away on the evening of December 12, 2013.
The passing of Ms. Maria is a loss that nothing can replace to the entire family, especially to the family of Ms. Quynh Anh.
The entire of the Board, employees, and collaborators of OBV would like to send to the family as well as the family of Ms. Quynh Anh our deepest and sincerest sympathy.
We are praying that Ms. Maria's soul will soon be touched by God.
Leaving Soc Trang, we headed to Phu Thu, Cai Rang District, Can Tho city to continue "parenting skills" training workshop.
Coincidentally, when we came, the local town also implemented Decree 704 - project of "Educating 5 million mothers to be good parents" in year 2010-2015. So many people had come.
Two day of parenting skill training on Dec 9th and 10th, 2014 at Dai Ngai, Long Phu district, Soc Trang province has been ended with the love of group memebers and attendees.
We were impressed upon arrival by the walm and attentive welcome of local staff, the full participation, punctuality and enthusiasm of the attendees. They attended this traing program not only for their own knowledge, but they also want to share them to other families in their local town and villages.
There has always been two Nuns in our House for years, one is called Mom and other is called Aunt. Today, both of them get promoted together.
Promotion – everyone looks forward to it. However, both of the Nuns are not looking forward to that.
As if becoming the Superior of the Congregation, the Mother Nun cannot stay with the OBV (One Body Village) in Vietnam anymore and the OBV children will be lonely of "losing" mom.
Got the invitation from the chair of Women Union in Long Phu district - Soc Trang, OBV Vietnam has organized parenting skill courses at Dai Ngai.
Through that training, OBV Vietnam hopes that the attendees - also trainers - will impart the knowlegde received from those courses to other families; with the purposes of working together to bring happiness to each family, to prevent evils happen to their children, especially trafficking and child sex slavery.
OBV family would like to welcome the new young baby girl who borned in November 25th, 2015. Congratulation to Mrs. Hong Duong (Father Martino's private secretary)
We wish your family the outpouring of God, and may your daughter fills your life with joy, love and pride!
We are deeply sorry to hear about the death of Ms. Hung Le on November 24th, 2013. She was borned in 1930 and was a grand mother of Ms. Huyen Tho - an employee of the shop "Feb 5th" (OBV Vietnam.)
Please accept our heartfelt condolences on the loss of your loved one.
