Not Just Once...

Perhaps it was through an instance of fate that brought Kelly to the OBV house. Since the first meeting with Kelly, she continues to make her annual trip to visit the OBV house and children. This year, she came not only once but three times and has even brought friends to accompany her during her visits.

If someone were to ask Kelly what her interests and passions are, she will likely answer: "My passion is to do charity work." Each year, Kelly takes a trip back to Vietnam and charity work takes up approximately 2/3 of her total trip. Other than that, Kelly takes trips from South Vietnam to North Vietnam and to various areas and regions that are dangerous and less fortunate. She informs us that she is always happy and at peace during these trips.

Seeking to understand

Today, we have a special guest. Father Thong, from United States, called her to give her permission to visit the house instead of waiting for the monthly visit. The reason being that she will be one of the four emcees for our second OBV show. With the theme "The Shoulder", it will be broadcasted by Thuy Nga Entertainment on May 1st, 2015 at Saigon Performing Art Center. Therefore, Father Thong hopes that her experience visiting the house will give her some inspirations to host the show.

Sincere appreciation to Mr./Mrs. Phong & Nguyet for spending the entire 3 days of Dai Hoi Duc Me LaVang Las Vegas 10/16-18/2015 taking care of OBV merchandises and distributing DVDs "Bo Vai".

Thank you to Mr./Mrs. Lam & Dung for driving a big TV & DVD player from Orange County to Las Vegas along with your family.

Much gratitude to Mr./Mrs. Steve & Kim Anh for donating your jewelry and gifts to OBV for fundraising.

Thank you to many friends, donors, and supporters.
