Trying Her Best

an old article...


Kim Vy had promised to come every Saturday to teach the kids English, and she had kept to her word for the last few weeks. Unfortunately, with the kids' exams fast approaching, her plans had to be pushed back, possibly when the next Mission Trip starts.

She came around noon on that last day, without gloves, a jacket or a face mask. She would joke 'The sun can't make my skin dark'. She would bring home made cakes and let the girls watch cartoon after lunch, then would lead them outside to do gardening. After a 15 minutes break, they started rearranging the rocks. She was about to leave at sunset when Mother N asked for her help to set up a statue of the Blessed Mother.

"I rarely pray," Kim Vy thought out loud. But everyone agreed that her actions were louder than prayers.
