Marta, Nguyen Thi Thanh Loan My name is Marta, I am 42 years old and I am the youngest of seven siblings in a Christian family. 11 years ago I joined my life to the Congregation of Sisters Hospitallers as I felt the need of helping the needy. I wish to offer my life to God; I feel the impulse to live under the spirit of our founding Saints and transmit it to all the patients in the world. During this time, this is the way I have developed my Hospitaller training: Aspirancy: a year in Chu Hai, Vietnam. Vietnam Novitiate: two years in Ho Nai, Vietnam. Vietnam Juniorate: seven years in Ho Nai, Vietnam. Vietnam The stage of “Josephinate” and my stay in Ciempozuelos has given me the possibility of becoming acquainted with the places where the Congregation was born, pray before the remains of our Founders and live with other sisters who follow the same path. At the same time I have deepened in aspects of my religious consecration, thus consolidating my firm Hospitaller vocation. I wish to live our charisma and values with fidelity in order to spread them to the whole wide world.
