Tr. Lām pitched his tent on the sand bank when he got cut off by the tide. A local fishermen rowed out to him but got sent away with the words "I'm a Huynh Trưởng, God will save me!".
Soon the rising water carried him out to sea so the fisherman called the coastguards and they sent out the lifeboat to him but they too were sent away with the same "I'm a Huynh Trưởng, God will save me!"
At long last a passing Hawaiian cruiser spotted Tr. Lām in the water and the crew went to rescue him but they were also sent away with the same "I'm a Huynh Trưởng, God will save me!"
Eventually cold and tired the Trưởng slid below the surface and drowned and went to heaven where he met St. Peter at the gates. He said to St. Peter, "You know how dedicated and important I'm to Thiếu Nhi, but why did God not save me?"
"Save you?" said St. Peter, "We sent you a rowing boat, a lifeboat and a Hawaiian cruiser! What more do you expect?
