"I Want To Be a Boy!"

She was talking to me

She is 17 years old, the most beautiful period in a female life. At her age, she would have so many dreams, expectations and aspirations if she were a normal teenager. Unfortunately, she is mentally ill.

I got a chance to meet Father Martino a few years back in Canada but I wasn't fit in lending a hand due to some medical reasons. However, I am now fine and perfectly fit in lending a hand...

I have people on payroll in VN on a full time basis. They can translate for you...

Hi Kristine,  I have watched your interview with Father Thong in Youtube...

I just found out about One Body Village about 3 hours ago through a Vietnamese blog I follow...

I am not a professional writer; however, I would like to write something about my trip to Vietnam with Dr. Nga Vu on the occasion of Father Martino Nguyen Ba-Thong's 10th anniversary of his Priesthood.

Having known Father Martino since 2009, and I have also traveled with them a few times to Vietnam. This time, I departed from Los Angeles and met Father Martino and Dr. Nga in Taipei, and the three of us flied to Vietnam together. As soon as the airplane landed, Nga and I really felt the heat of summer. We were slowly moved through the customs while Father Martino quickly passed through and preceded to the baggage claim area. When we finished with the paper work, Father Martino had gathered all luggages, ready to proceed to the car. Yen-Thao and Hien-Thuc, a famous Vietnamese singer, were waiting outside to welcome us. They took us to the "5 Tháng 2" (February 5) on Võ Văn Tần street, a very beautiful fashion shop located in District 3, and this is also the headquarter of "Nhịp Cầu Hạnh Phúc" (OBV Vietnam). I then went to lunch with Nga and Yen-Thao, stopped by Thiên Ý Spa (one of OBV's businesses) to visit employees there. I was so surprised to see a very modern and high-class spa. I never thought that Father Martino could open these businesses. It was Nga, who spent her own money for OBV to open these shops to create jobs for local people and OBV's children.

See You Again!

Dr. Nga Vu, MD - first chair of the board and biggest supporter of OBV in the last 14+ year - paid a visit to OBV houses and took the children on a beach vacation before she takes on another "vocation!"

Here is her reflection!

Dear One Body Village

I am writing to thank you for your permission for us to hand out pamphlets about One Body Village and for allowing us to spread your message at our 27th Annual Bike-a-Thon. I believe that we have spread a lot of awareness through this event. On behalf of Vietnamese Student Association at UC Davis and all of our bikers, I thank you for all of the hard work that you have done to save these children's lives.
