Fellowship of Oso Creek Service August 2012Trip

August 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.

New friends.

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.

Making the water drain for school.

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.

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.

Together we do everything even ... Posing.
