Here comes Summer! The children at Social Sponsor Center 3(SS3) were so excited to meet their brothers and sisters from Richmond, Virginia, which of course included a trip to Do Son beach. They had been waiting awhole year for this trip! They kept asking the GVI staff, “when will the team arrive? What should they prepare for the trip, for the talent show?”
The 13 member team came from June 16-22. Some of them were first-time travelers but they immediately fell in love with the kids and talked to them like they had been close friends for a long time.
Hugging, tears of joy…the memories came back. Here they are at the beach together and no barrier could stop their love for each other, even language.
The kids prepared songs, plays, and many surprising things at the talent show for their brothers and sisters. Area 10 also prepared a lot of games and crafts for the kids that made them so excited. Three days at the beach was a wonderful time for everyone.
The kids at SS3 felt like princes and princesses. They were happy and enjoyed the trip so much they hated to say goodbye to the team - the hardest part of the trip. Even though they live far away from each other, their heartsare close together and their love is “Love beyond the Reason”.
