A Quick Note From Toronto, Canada
Written from Toronto, Canada at 1:00am – Monday August 30th, 2010
Dear friends, it is me, your friend and priest – Father Martino (AKA cha Thong),
Though I am very tired, I cannot sleep because, I am hyped up! I am still living in my “dream!” Dr. Nga Vu (OBV’s chair) and I arrived in Toronto this afternoon for an awareness event to be the voice for the Children Sold into Sex Slavery! We expected to have a crowd of 100 people!
30 minutes before starting time (5:30pm) we already had 100! As I began talking, at 5:30pm about 300 filled the basement of Saint Cecilia, and then it became a standing room only! Filled with 400+ people!
There are many people we need to be grateful and thanks – I will name them later! Since this is a quick note! But few worth mention now are: Father Tap – The pastor of St. Cecilia; St. Paul Choir – and the media, especially Thoi Bao! Thank you all for spreading the news!!! And for being there!
Blessings and peace,
