When I came back to Vietnam with my family in 05’, the summer going into 6th grade, I struggled trying to master the mathematics behind factorial trees and variable expressions. As I stayed there for a month and a half, I realized these people here struggled to make ends meet every day. When I walked to the outdoor market with my mom I’d see an old man with who I assumed were his grandkids, selling lottery tickets in order to get however much money they could have gotten, to put food on the table.

It really doesn’t take a lot to sympathize for these people, or for anyone in these unfortunate third world countries. And yeah some are gradually developing, but this growth is only focused in the larger cities. The smaller rural areas are still forced to overcome the obstacles they were practically born into.

It only took a small moment to remind me of the opportunities that I had that these people did not, the blessings and privileges that I grew up taking advantage of, while these people searched to find the blessings in their misfortune, the fact that I had a future to look forward to, while these people lived continuously haunted by their past, present, and future…

Many if not all of us come from a family of first, second generation or generations of immigrants who came over to America in search of a better life for themselves and their families; now that these goals have been achieved and opportunities given, we shouldn’t forget about those who did not get the same privileges we received.

Six months ago I was given the opportunity to join a Christian based, non-profit organization called GSMDM, short for Good Samaritan Medical and Dental Ministry, and honestly, I have been soo so blessed to be able to be a part of and assist such an amazing, selfless, and inspiring group of individuals. This summer I will go along with this group to a rural city called Cao Bang, where we will work to serve those in Vietnam, doing the best that we can to help them physically, mentally, and spiritually.

With the huge amount of medicine, machinery, instruments and tools, and other necessities that must be bought and brought over to make this mission trip happen, money is inevitably a huge barrier.

If you have reached the near end of this post and are continuing to read.. it would mean SO SO much for all of us if you helped to spread the word about this mission trip. Please, keep us in your prayers, and with whatever amount you can give, please donate and help us make this mission trip be as best as it can possibly be. And I can assure you, we do not take a cent for ourselves !!!

So for those of you that have always wanted to give back but never found the opportunity to, help donate to this mission and share this blessing with us. Whether it be a small prayer, or even fifty cents, anything you give will be very much appreciated. Cents may not be of much value to us here in America, but these cents in Vietnam definitely add up .. Donate a mere $2 and we’ll be able to make a goodie bag for these people of need, who have walked 10-20 miles to meet with our medical group in the rural region of Cao Bang. $2 and you’ll be able to give rice, milk, vegetables, bread.
Two dollars to make a huge difference for the unfortunate.

Thanks everyone, stay blessed <3
