THE STORY:

There is a line from a song “Open the Eyes of my Heart.” that exemplifies what happens when United Campus Ministry travels to Vietnam to serve, learn, and make new friends. United Campus Ministry will be making it’s sixth trip to the Mekong Delta over the winter break 2013-2014. During the 2010-2011break we served, along with the help of students from Can Tho University, a poverty-stricken village of Tan Hou Commune, Hau An Dist., Can Tho Prov. Vietnam. This service learning experience, that included building a medical clinic at a school, is something that changed us forever. It was an opportunity that provided new understanding of the global community in a way that a classroom can not.
We are returning to another village in Vietnam over the 2013-2014 Winter Break. Once again this trip presents us with the opportunity to serve those a world away. The experiences provided will build new bridges and strengthen those of peace, respect and love between our two nations. We are excited about the new experiences we will share with others committed to making a difference in our world. We will be building a two room school in the Ben Tre Provence of Vietnam in partnership with students from colleges in Ho Chi Mihn City,

“I have been very thankful for Shippensburg University for all of the wonderful life-giving and life-growing opportunities that it provides, including all of the amazing people that give so much of themselves for students and former students like me.  I had been involved in service and caring for others before going to Vietnam, but something about these trips opened my eyes and sparked a passion and vision within me to reach out to a world in need of love, joy, support, and hope.  During the rest of my time at Ship, I had been able to go on five different service-related trips to the Gulf Coast, serve as President of the Circle K club, which is now one of the biggest service-clubs at Ship, work as a student worker within the Volunteer Service Office, and serve as the AmeriCorps*VISTA for the University for this previous year.  I can honestly say that I wonder if I would have done any of these things had it not been for the Vietnam trips.”  -Matt Pouss Class of 07, MA 13
