One year ago Trang and her husband Huan came to the United States to have their wedding blessed in the Holy Nativity Church in Kinsley Kansas. Kinsley and the Kinsley Rotary Club were home to Trang when she was a Rotary Exchange Student. Trang was the first Exchange Student since the new government in Vietnam. I believe a few followed her but Rotary International now says Exchange Students must come from "Rotary Countries," so that has ended a great program to help poor kids of poor countries.
Trang was an orphan, she lost her Father when she was eight years old. She has a Mother, but in Vietnam, if you don't have a Dad, you are an orphan. This is a good concept because most women of her Mother's generation are not trained to make a living, just take care of a house.
I have told the story of Trang in other blogs so I won't repeat it here. Being an Exchange student was a life changing event for Trang so it is no wonder she wanted to come to Kinsley Kansas and share her wedding with her friends. She was married in the summer of 08 in a
civil ceremony in Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam. To her, the marriage blessing offered by the Holy Nativity Church in Kinsley offered her a chance to make her marriage right with God.
