Vietnam Witness

At our December 4 service, Dr. Thanh Nguyen and her daughter Titania shared their recent experiences with orphans in Vietnam. Thanh described her experience as a survivor of the war in Vietnam and as one of the Boat People who attained an education in the United States. She is currently a professor of education at BSU. In recent years, she and her family have visited orphanages in Vietnam. During our morning service they described the experience and challenged our congregation to become involved.

The presentation included videos that are available on their Children of Vietnam blog. We expect to see the entire Nguyen family again in future services, both at First Parish Bridgewater and elsewhere in the Cranberry Cluster.
