24 hours in Toronto!

As father Martino (Cha Thông) and I (representing One Body Village) left the US border, we took a quick nap on the plane on our way to another exciting awareness event.  As soon as we arrived in Toronto and made it through customs, we were greeted enthusiastically by our beloved coordinator Kelly Le and our chauffeur Chris (After our experience with Kelly’s driving we decided to keep Chris as our chauffeur J).  They quickly whisked us away to the church hall where mass was ending and the set up was already beginning.

OBV in San Diego: When Father Martino, Nga, Kim and I pulled up to the restaurant I wondered to myself "How many people are actually going to come? It's July 4th, and everyone is going to miss the fireworks!" When we entered the building we were greeted by a group of the most kind, and generous people. Ranging from young adults to those who may have grandkids, the planning committee wore white One Body Village polos as they hustled and bustled about making sure everything ran smoothly. I peeked into the dining room, and I see many empty tables. I shouldn't have worried; by the time the program was in full swing the tables were brimming with people. The program kicked off with a duet by an adorable young brother-sister duo, both of which are younger than ten years old! A smile spread across my face as I see little ones running around, playing and dancing to the music in their Stop Child Sex Slavery shirts they had bought last year. That's one way to be a voice for the children!


That's the powerpoint that we did our presentation on.
It started out as looking at cambodia and like all the pretty places people can goo then we focus more on what's beneath those places and what's happening in buildings that people just walk by.
Then we gave stories of people although they aren't from Cambodia they give a general outlook on these situation then we told them how kids in Cambodia isn't as fortunate as these stories are and how they're more trapped and stuff and yeah then stats and the organization.

...have nothing but only a heart...

Dear OBV friends,

God, please help me, ignite me and give me wisdom what to say here!  I'm a doer not a talker nor a writer.  I had been through the student's life in college and understand the difficulty about budget.  I only had enough money to live in a 15 x 25 sqft appartment with one of my best friend.  However, I never regret it, but also student's time gave me a great time and unforgetable memories with many big dreams.  Now, I'm working on my dreams and missing my student's time :)  The Mission Trip Summer 2010 in VietNam may cost a lot of money for you: air ticket + trip fee + personal usage.  I guess most of you are students or youth with great heart.  So I would like to help you out a little bit by reimbursing each one of you $100.00 for the trip fee.  You only need to pay $900.00 for the trip fee.  I heard Fr. Thong said that there are still spaces available now.

I wish that you have a great, fun and unforgetable trip, Thank God for what I have now.

Who have nothing but only a heart.
