Hello everybody, I am Joseph Tien.
At present I am a Spiritan brother from Vietnam. I love missionary life and I hope I can bring more joy and happiness to many people. I lived in the Philippines for more than two years and then was sent to England for pastoral missionary experience. Life is a journey and in this journey I am having many opportunities to encounter and learn from different kinds of people in society. No matter who they are, all of them can teach me something valuable and many of them are giving me good inspiration. Indeed, I cannot talk about these wonderful people without mentioning the Just Youth team with whom I work now.
The Just Youth team includes different people coming from different countries. They are friendly, creative and supportive members. I really enjoy working with the team and at the same time I can get inspiration from their way of life. From the bottom of my heart, I am very happy to be a member of the team, co-operate with them in order to bring inspiration, help young people to explore and express their identity through discussions, reflection and activities.
In spite of some challenges, I strongly believe that working in Just Youth is a very good opportunity for me to get practical experiences in order to broaden my knowledge and grow in faith. Time goes by and will never return again, but I always keep meaningful and beautiful moments I have experienced in my heart. The Just Youth team has become part of my life. I am thankful for all of them. Hopefully, whilst working in Just Youth, I will be able to contribute in little ways to bring more joy and more smiles to people because little actions can make the difference and make our lives more beautiful.
