Presents From an Anonymous Guest

 

OBV Managers and assistants take OBV children to buy new clothes, a present from an anonymous guest

Besides candies and medicines, this guest kept asking me "What else do the children need?" Due to her enthusiasm, Soeur did not hesitate anymore and said "It nearly comes to holiday, so can you please buy each a new set of clothes"

She asked us to calculate the amount of money, and only after few minutes, Soeur was received money to buy new clothes for Tet (New Year) for the children.

Upon hearing the sentence above, I always thought of it something uttered from the mouth of a "mama" or from the "elder brothers or sisters" specialized brokerage, hussling and trafficking of women and children as prostitutes, as sex slaves. Never even in my dream, would I believe this is the words of "advice" from a birth mother to her daughter.

Overcoming Difficulties

A visit had been set up by Father Thong.  Perhaps he would like his children to imitate the overcoming difficulty samples from a group named "Cảm ơn cuộc đời" ("Thank life").  This is a group of many difficult lives - mostly orphaned -  that have been brought together and helped by Mr. Ai Tran.

Our Appreciation

The washing machine from Mr. Trieu Nguyen and Mrs. Ly Nguyen

OBV children have never thought of a washing machine because they had lived in poverty since they were young, so they would not dare to dream one.  When joining OBV family, and learning to take care of themselves, every of the OBV child as well as the house management had to wash their clothes by hand.

Surprised visitors

No schedules, no appointments, nothing special... After dinner and general intercessions, the children were studing in their rooms. A van had suddently stopped at obv house door. Every guest steped out was a surprise for obv family.

Doctor Nguyet - long time no see. The obv children thronged to her so that she could not move nor have a tour to the house.
