Small angels on Christmas



OBV family is celebrating Christmas

Sunday: The first day of a week, the day that children were waiting for as they could rest and play

According to our program, tonight Sunday, December 12th, we took children to watch performances at church. We walked around to see rock shelter in the parish. Our children were prior to seat in front where was only for Priest and Seour. During the performances, when every performance ended, priest looked at our children and clapped his hands proudly, people in the church were watching, but only Priest clapped most loudly, clap even the performance was good or not, he gave soft drink to them and said "Drink to have energy to clap your hands". M found him happy and cheerful; she touched him and sang "I ask u why you became a Priest?" He could not answer, Mother N helped. He said: I know, this song is Father Thong's, right? It turned out that he knew Father Thong! He also said: When our Parish has performances, Seour will let you perform some, OK!!! After the performances, we walked back, two youngest children felt weary in their legs, so her sisters carry on their backs. What a happy day.

Oh! We own Tuktuk now!

 

OBV staff in Cambodia is driving the children around in new Tuktuk.

For the necessities are needed such as children go to Mass, attending the weekly Bible school, especially in the rainy season which is heavily raining all day long, they also have to go to school, the OBV organization in Cambodia has just bought a Tuktuk.

OBV jus received a child through the introduction of Archdiocese Caritas Saigon.
When we talked with her mom, we got to know that her family situation was so tragical that the mom had intended to apostatize as the Cross God gave her was too heavy. She prayed to Mother Mary, if Mother Mary hadn't helped, she would apostatize and send her daughter to a house in a pagoda. Luckily, as Mr Huynh Truong, her catechist, knowing her situation, came to Caritas office to ask for help.

Thanks to Mekong Mother's grace

 

Children of OBV Cambodia

There was nothing new or special happened to our lives. However, I felt one thing and consider it as a grace of Mekong Mother. It was children who visit Mother after finishing school. I think Mother may feel touched when she sees her little children visit her everyday, so she gives grace for our family: all of the kids want to stay here. Ngoc Yen said: "I feel sorry for sister N.B, don't know how she is doing now."

With Mother's grace, we all feel warm in our famiy. We all pray and thank Mother everyday.

"Let us contribute"

The result after many months of hard works

The OBV (One Body Village) family was very happy that the couples Viet Thu Dinh, aboard Australian, visit and stay and help the children in some ways for one week.

Before the couples came, the garden cooling shade project had been planned, implemented secretly and funded by "Black Funds" with our own labors. But the couples had contributed an enough amount of money, and also lend a helping hand into this project.
