OCTOBER 2002

(1 John 3:16-18,NKJV):  By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us.  And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.  But whoever has this world's goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him? 
My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.
This is the scripture that compels us.

Greetings,
Last month we visited many new children. Most will be added to our scholarship program, some to our feeding program and some will receive medical help. Below and to the right is Dinh Van Khoi and his family. Khoi is 4 years old. When he was born, his stomach was outside his body.


Please pray for Khoi and his family.

His intestines empty into a bag he wears around his waist. He has a large tumor on his back and a club left foot. Here LOVE presents him rice and money for medical help. He will begin a series of operations over the next few years.

PICTURED BELOW ARE TWO CHILDREN WHOSE MOTHERS HAVE DIED OF AIDS

Thai Thi Hong Minh, left, lives with her grandmother and older sister. She is 11 years old. LOVE is providing a scholarship to send her to school.
Nga, right, is 3 years old. LOVE is providing foster care for her to live until she is adopted. Both girls may have HIV. We are waiting for test results. PRAY for Minh and Nga.


We are also helping the child to the left. She has a broken leg and is very severely handicapped.

LOVE's budget for 2002-2003 is $21,000. This is an $8,000 increase over last year. It is a real step in faith for us. PLEASE PRAY EARNESTLY FOR OUR COMMITMENT HERE. You can also help by sharing this Newsletter and our burden for the children of Vietnam with others. We have worked to help Vietnamese in the U.S. for 20 years. We have worked part-time in Vietnam in 1998 and 1999. In year 2000 God led us to work full-time. We have recently received recognition by the IRS in America as a non-profit organization and all contributions to LOVE are tax-deductible. Please help the children of Vietnam.

Blessings, Reggie, Chi, and Duc in Vietnam
