Ship Shooting Game

A special session was organized by the Psychology Department of a university to have student come in monthly to train the children of OBV on general life skills. This month, the topic was the responsibility and resolution of conflicts.

The training starting with a game of Ship Shooting. The children were divided in 3 groups, each group being in charge of a ship. When shooting at another ship, the whole crew had to yell out a phrase, such as 'Aim, Fire, Boom!' along with the name of the other ship. 

It started off very confusing, with the young sailors accidentally shooting at themselves, or saying their phrase in the wrong order, or calling the name of the wrong ship.

"Story of The Stars"

On the greeting and gratitude evening at OBV, there was a special guest.

A military veteran of Southeast Asian nations who for many years has continued to struggle with the obsessions that come from his military experiences.

He is also a friend of Ms. Huong, an OBV supporter, and he bought Huong's paintings to raise money for OBV.

On that evening, he asked to go on stage to "pass on the fire" to the OBV children through a short story - the story of the Stars.

"Today, I want to tell you a short story about Stars.

You know what Stars are, right?

Tinh Khoi! Congratulations!

Our warmest congratulations to Tinh Khoi, the first of hopefully many OBV daughters who has successfully been admitted into Street International - an organization headed by Neal F. Bermas, PhD.

The course will last 18 months, with classes including English, life skills, F&B business and/or culinary arts (trainees are able to take on either). The curriculum closely follows that of the Institute of Culinary Education - USA.

Our OBV family sends our wishes for successful studies to build a brighter future for herself and her family.

Christmas Season

Follow the spiritutality of Father Martino Nguyen Ba Thong, the children of OBV Vietnam and Campuchia won't receive or give gifts. Instead, as an offering to Jesus on his birthday, they will do some good deeds and make sacrifices for their families, relatives, friends, and neighbours.

In this picture, the children of OBV Cambodia list down the good deeds that they will do this Christmas, and hang them on their tree. In Vietnam, the children will save a part of the December allowance to donate to the homeless on January 12th, 2018, as Father Martino has done every year for his birthday (Jan 13).

Thank You, My Dear Mother

I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all the supporters who have helped me to be where I am now. Sometimes it's still surreal to me. I'm a 12th grader now, but it feels like a dream. Where would I be if I had not been picked up and protected by OBV?? Would i be at peace, would I be attending school?

Absolutely not.
