On the 14th of June, Br. John the Baptist (right) joined Br. Lawrence as long term guests of Gethsemani.

They are following the tradition of Br's Peter Khanh and Ephrem who lived with us from 2012 to 2014.

Like Br's Peter Khanh and Ephrem, they are from the monastery of Our Lady of Thien Phuoc, which means "Grace."

It is a monastery of our sister Order, the Order of Cistercians (O. Cist.). It is located on the south-east coast of Viet Nam.

 As you can see from this photograph, the monastery is in a very beautiful spot, with a mountain behind and the ocean in front.
