In mid-October 2019 we visited the Lac Thien Orphanage. We had asked the nuns what they were in need of and organized a trip. We brought the orphanage a new bicycle for the children to share and lots of essential supplies. Supplies included clothes, rain ponchos, umbrellas, undergarments, toiletries, cooking pans, utensils, serving plates, mosquito nets, balloons, and snacks.

The children gathered in the common room and had fun with the balloons and snacks. Some were eager to try out the new bicycle. Our team had a nice long visit and the children eventually gathered for lunchtime. A fun visit!

This visit was made possible through a donation from the BEI Foundation. Thank you!!!


Located in Ninh Hoa to the north of Nha Trang, Lac Thien is a loving home to a large group of orphans. There are several orphan babies at Lac Thien, and the orphanage also takes in elderly whose family cannot care for them.
