    summer ! living in the moment

    As we begin a new TNTT year, it is surreal to think that we are in the last year of Ban Chp Hnh Mins term. The last three years has been filled with many ups and downs, many what the type of moments, and many smiles and bursts of laughter. Yet through it all, in this moment in time, I feel so blessed to be part of an amazing region whose love and support for each other makes this place home.

    This summer was a special one. It kicked off with Bn Mng Min in Philly, where we witnessed the promotion of 10 Huynh Trng (HT) and three Tr T (TT). Despite coming from different backgrounds and family circumstances, these 13 individuals took the courageous step because of their love for TNTT and the kids, Ly Cha Gisu Thnh Th, con xin n dng mnh lm HT trong PTTNTT, con mun tp cho cc em bit tn tnh yu mn v kt hp vi Cha For some unknown reason, at every promotion ceremony and during the HT oath, I get an indescribable feeling that is a mix of joy, anticipation, and hope. To think that over the past three years, Min has witnessed over 50 HT and 30 TT promotions. Thanks be to God!

    Then we gathered in the heat of summer for i Hi Huynh Trng MT. Can I really complain about having to spend the weekend at the beach?!? Except for the smell of crabs in my car of course ;). There were many memories from this event, especially the people I got to know better and the epic selfie fail. The most

    memorable moment happened at 6AM on Sunday morning. I was awakened by tr. Kim Chi running in after watching the sunrise. Half-awake, she excitedly shows me the beautiful images she was able to capture (props to her because that is why we have such a beautiful cover for the newsletter!). After laying back down, I

    smiled to myself because its moments like these, the small things in life and the relationships Ive made that is a reminder of how grateful I am for all these people and the blessings God has given me.

    I can go on and on about all the great memories from the past summer. Yet, what I have come to realize is its not the events that make it unforgettable, it is the people. Maybe I am a bit biased, but I think MT is one of the best regions out there. Not because of our location (which obviously isnt half bad!), but the love MTers have for each other and for the young TNTTers.

    In all the opportunities to serve, I am amazed at the level of dedication and selflessness. We ha ve the g roup of MTers who don't seem to sleep; working

    Epic selfie fail at HHT. Thats my eye on the right.

    an amazing region whose love and support for each

    other makes this place home. tr. maria trn th ngc nhi teresa

    tirelessly to ensure things go smoothly. Then we have the energizer bunnies whose enthusiasm and optimism is contagious and motivating. Then we have the do-ers who always say yes to lending a hand, even before they know what is being asked of them. These groups of people, which I am so lucky to have had the chance to work with is the reason BCH Min is still breathing!

    As MT continues to grow in number and love for Jesus Christ, I am reminded that my journey as a HT never ends and that there is always areas to improve and room to grow as a child of Christ. Not only does that mean attending training camps to better myself as a HT, but also deepening my relationship with God by spending time with Him daily in the Sacrament of the Eucharist.

    Maybe that's why I get the indescribable feeling during the HT promotion ceremony Because its as through Jesus is there watching over each one of us, reminding us that our journey to become a HT isnt the end goal, but a milestone to do even more to serve Him, to serve the Church, and to serve the youths.

    I am so thankful to all the MTers that I have had the opportunity to serve with, because they are not just another MTer, but a friend. From those who always feed me, to those who have supported me on my topsy turvy journey.

    Before this letter becomes a novel, I want to end with one of my favorite Bible quotes; hopefully it will inspire you as it has for me in my journey to serve,

    yet I live, no longer I, but Christ lives in me. (Galatians 2:20)

    Love in Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, Teresa
