I accompany OBV

Below are the few line jotted down by Lee Channimol, One of our new project staff in Cambodia.

This is my first opportunity to work with OBV to help sexual slavery victims. I am truly happy. This was always my ambition since I was a student. However, I was still so worry when I started working with OBV. I did not know what to do to help. I always tell my self to keep it up. I am so lucky to have the support and encouragement from family and friends.

I started my first case with two little girls in my village. When I decided to go see them, I was worried that they would think I had a bad intention. After our talk, the family more open and allow me to help them. I will go into further details in my next post. 

I love and value what I do. I will try harder and help people as much as I can.

The Beloved Guests

It was a weekend afternoon, and also the end of the month. Mrs Đỗ Thu Trang and her daughter Ái Linh from America returned to Vietnam, and came to visit the OBV children. On the long road, mother and daughter drove around in a Honda asking for directions, with the bright beating sun leaving them quite sweaty. However, as she said, all fatigue disappeared when they saw the children.

Master Thinh Pham

On the night of May 10, 2014, by invitation of The Assistant Bui Phat Parish Priest, Bridge to Happiness Center had a chance to talk with the parents in Parish about the topic "Sharing The Burden of Studies With Your Children."  It was spoken by the speaker of the Center, Pham Phuc Thinh.  Below is the sharing of him after the conference.

The topic "Sharing The Burden of Studies With Your Children" is the topic that I have cared and nurtured for so long. I want to make it to help the children can learn less time and have the feeling that study is not too scary, but fun.

On the 10th Anniversary of your Priesthood (2004 - June 5 - 2014), we would like to thank you for your loving example of self-sacrifice and generous service to One Body Village.

You are another Christ to your flock. May you be richly blessed!

Musical Play “The Life I Left Behind”

One Body Village for the first time presented the Musical Play "The Life I Left Behind" on April 25th, 2014 in Orange County, CA and on April 27th, 2014 in San Jose, CA.

The play showcased the real and painful stories of OBV's 3 children whose lives were scarred by child sex slavery. Their harrowing recounts of their stories brought to the forefront the evil nature of child sex slavery, the sufferings it caused to young lives, and the challenges lasting well past the trauma that are now part of their lives as they undergo the rehabilitation and the reintegration into societies.

US – Vietnam – Cambodia: meeting

Cross-border cordial smiles

Although everyone in The Radio Saigon Houston delegation had stayed to work in Cambodia for only four days, we will always remember them all. Thank you for spending time to have fun with us. In addition to this joy, on the last day, some sisters from OBV Vietnam House also visited Cambodia House. Because we had had the opportunity to meet and chat with each other via Skype, via video a few times and one big sister had even come here to take care of us to help Mother Phuong, our "first surprising moment" quickly went away.

A Workshop at Mac Bac Church

Per reference by Father Xua – a priest who is very down to earth and passionate in serving his people, Bridge to Happiness Center got a chance to talk to over 400 young adults from Mac Bac diocese, Tra Vinh province.

The event took place at Mac Bac church – the second largest church of South Vietnam in the late nineteenth century. Father Peter, who welcomed our party, left me an impression that he was very caring. Throughout the way, he kept asking where we were heading and how, whether we were tired, and he let us know he got food ready for everyone... His hospitality truly warmed our hearts.
