Fellowship of Oso Creek Service August 2012TripAugust 27, 2012
Talking about Ban Ho Middle School makes any members of Oso Creek Community team who have been to Ban Ho, Sapa, Vietnam to think of the wonderful people and beautiful scenery.
Oso Creek Community came to Ban Ho to help the school with water filter system which gave clean water for students, teachers and villagers, with paving the schoolyard, donating warm coats for students to cope with the harsh winter, donating blankets & nets & mats for school boarders and teaching English through games and activities.
Each time when team comes, Ban Ho’s students and teachers are so excited and happy. They welcome the team with big smiles and big hugs. It is just like family members come home. The language barrier is not a matter, it is what comes from those beautiful eyes, beautiful smiles and beautiful songs. How can you forget the “tea time” when team sits with teachers drink tea and talk about everything since last time.
And this August 2012 trip was not an exception. 6 members came to help the school with building 2 dormitories for 50 school boarders. Having time to work with Ban Ho’s teachers and students was a great experience because it was not just working time but also playing time, laughing time and sharing time.
Once you come, you will experience these feelings which may not be described by words.
