Newsletter No.03 Apr. 2004
Spring 2004 has been already in Vietnam
since the end of January, when the new year started. For us, as Solar
Serve, it is a time to serve the nation with the Sun again.
The best time of the year
This year we are working
in several places in Quang Nam
province. In one place we had to rent a house for our staff. After the
contract was signed, the owner decided to change her mind and didn’t
allow the staff to live there. But everything works out for good, and
after a few days the staff found a better and more comfortable house.
Mrs. Ngoc took also care of a 15 year old boy who was left behind by
his parents. This will be also a form of serving for us. At the small
factory in Tam Ky town, Mr. Lien en Mr. Can have made six parabolic
solar cookers during the last few months. They decided to make a new
para-bolic solar cooker of 240 left-over pieces of inox of the normal
BTL solar cookers. It worked well. A sheet of paper burns in a few
minutes when it is put in the center of the cooker. We are trying to
find new places for using these parabolic solar cookers.
To be available
Our workers are not only
learning to serve, but they are
also being available for anyone who needs help. Every week they come
together for study. After that they practice what they have learned. A
few weeks ago an old lady asked them to come to her house. She was very
sick and needed some comfort. They took care of her and after a few
days her health improved. Also some reconciliation was done between her
and other relatives.
Keep in touch!
That was all for now. Please keep in touch while we are all
serving in the presence of the Sun.
