A Devoted Journey…

A Devoted Journey…

I’m dedicating these thoughts to Ms. Theresa Tran, who devoted herself to care for the wellbeing of the less fortunate children in Vietnam.  She inspires me in such way that remind me of a periodically of my serving and enjoying the charity work along the way.  I think the biggest lesson I’ve learned from charity is to live in the moment. Donating to good cause is a reason to force me to stop from a fast pace living environment and smell the roses, and then I found my life is so much richer for it. The poverty, both physically and emotionally, of the poor orphaned children is the motivation that lead Ms. Tran to devote her time to helping them.  It deeply touched my heart.  I felt my heart shattered in each of it’s beat to hear how she had been affected by her relationship, and how she responded in kind with love and devotion.  Ms. Tran had put her role at the forefront to care for the sick and abused, while searching ways to raise money to care for the children who have no place else to go. She combined her love and her dreams, while setting her role model for all of us as whole. There is so much that I can’t mention them all, but I think we all would find the inspiration in Ms. Tran, who is so devoted to improve the lives of the children of Vietnam.

Have you ever thought that a beautiful country like Vietnam would have an uncountable number of poor children that never get a chance to go to school?  Most of the kids die young from starvation on the city’s street and none of them is literate.  Sometimes I'm wonder why we should care about what happens to these children, because whatever out of sight it should be out of mind.  Then again I think about whether the society would give them a chance in life.  Their futures look bleak.  They live without an education; they were destined to live a life on the streets, just like most homeless we’ve seen.

The generosities from individuals like all of you have made possible through yearly donations for M.O.L.org to provide care and education that these kids should have the right to.  For the past several years, M.O.L.org has provided thousands of children in VN with free access to school, clothing, food and other special holiday’s gift programs. Without such generosity and support, none of this would have been possible.

Please consider helping the M.O.L.org in giving these children a life time gift of possibilities.  Perhaps, your donations give these children this utmost advantage in life; also it is creating an entire better foundation for their education to better their lives. We strongly believe the most important gift that these misfortunate children will receive is the LOVE from all of us, even though we are very far away from them and they never seen or ever met any of us before in their life time. They will receive our LOVE, because we love them and we want to give our love to these misfortunate Vietnamese children.

I trust that all of you, friends, and family will join us in reaching the fund raising goal for M.O.L.org this year. A simple donation can be made online or make a check payable to the address below. We sincerely thank you for your continued support to make this event possible today to fulfill the mission of giving to our children.  Your kindness will demonstrate love and create hope where hope is often lost.  On the behalf of the children - We thank you for your kindness in giving- and also the loves it creates. May God always and richly bless America.

Có một phút nào đó trong cuộc sống bận rộn hằng ngày, chúng ta dừng lại và suy ngẫm về những đứa trẻ mồ côi, nghèo khó, không có dịp được cắp sách đến trường, đang sống lầm than đói khát trên vỉa hè của quê hương Việt Nam?  Và có khi nào chúng ta tự hỏi chính mình:  tại sao tôi lại phải chia xớt một tấm lòng của mình với những người mà tôi chưa từng quen biết ?  Điều này đã làm cho tôi nghĩ ngay đến đứa bé mồ côi khiếm thị mà cô Ly Băng Trần đã mang về từ VN để chữa mắt và nuôi nấng tại thành phố Houston, Texas.

Chính vì không quen biết với một thân nhân nào hết, nên những trẻ em này phải rất cần đến sự giúp đỡ và chia xớt tình thương của chúng ta.  Các bạn chỉ cần nhịn lại $10 USD trong 2 tuần ($260 USD trong một năm) thì các bạn sẽ cứu thóat được 2 đứa trẻ kém may mắn qua cơn hiểm nghèo của bệnh tật và đói khát.  Hay có thể nghĩ rằng chúng ta đang đầu tư vào một thế hệ mới không còn lam lũ, vất vả nữa trên quê hương mình.

Với tình thương yêu bao la của Thượng Đế, tôi luôn cầu mong sao cho chúng ta sẽ không bao giờ quên đi những đứa trẻ còn lại bên quê nhà; và sẽ mãi mãi cùng nhau góp một bàn tay và một tấm lòng chung sức để xây dựng một cuộc sống của trẻ thơ được tươi đẹp, ấm no hơn trên quê hương Việt Nam nghìn đời yêu dấu.Here is the link to the video that we have for MoL.
