Love Of Vietnam Expressed, Inc.

By

Helping the poor and needy

(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.

Official Newsletter of  LOVE                      June 2005

May visitors

Aimee is a dental hygienist from Canada . Beau, of the U.S. , did a short term mission with YWAM in Thailand before joining us for a few weeks. They both worked with children in Family 4. Aimee also helped us by screening teeth of some of our children.

New Business

Mr. Man, vice-director of the Street Children Program looks over goods being sold by Mrs. Hong. Mrs. Hong has 2 children, her husband is handicapped. LOVE provided the money to run her business so she will be self sufficient. She hopes to earn $50 a month

New Clothes

Hang, one of our children receives new clothes from a family in the U.S. If you would like to do this you can mail to Reggie, check with Vietnamese in your community who may visit Vietnam and ask them to bring them, or send a check to LOVE's U.S office.

Medical/Nutrition

 

Please pray for Vy and her mother. Vy is 4 months old and spent the first 2 months of her life in the hospital on life support. She has a heart problem. LOVE is providing nutrition for her. When her weight reaches 16 lbs they will operate on her heart.

Chi is giving baby formula

Summer

Summer is here and is the busiest time of year. For the next 3 months we will be reviewing our children and deciding who to renew scholarships for the new year. In addition we already have a large number of new applications and will receive many more before summer is over. We must measure the children and have school uniforms made and order text books for over 250 children.

Prayer

We need your prayers more now than ever before. Please pray for wisdom as who should be dropped from the program and who should be added. The 2 main things we look at is 1) financial need 2) is the child trying his/her best. If grades are low or attendance is poor, we must investigate to see the causes for a child to continue. In addition, we must review the financial needs.

We also greatly need to increase the number of regular monthly supporters; those who can give $10, $20, $50, or $100 a month. We are grateful for all contributions, but it is very difficult to plan and budget without regular contributions.

Needed

 

This is Minh, a house church preacher in Quang Nam Providence. He injured his eye (see right photo) in an accident. He and his church raised and borrowed money for his first operation. Now he needs a second operation, but there is no money.

He needs $300 for an eye saving operation and another $100 to pay off the first operation. If you can help this preacher save his eye, please email me and send your donation to the address below.

I read this in Agape Press, check it out.

EVANGELICAL STRATEGY STATEMENT GAINS APPROVAL
Almost 90 evangelical leaders have given their approval to a document that calls conservative Christians to go beyond their usual issues, like abortion and homosexual rights, and involve themselves in such matters as poverty, justice and human rights.

God's Promise: (Deu 15:10-11 NKJV)  "You shall surely give to him, and your heart should not be grieved when you give to him, because for this thing the LORD your God will bless you in all your works and in all to which you put your hand. "For the poor will never cease from the land; therefore I command you, saying, 'You shall open your hand wide to your brother, to your poor and your needy, in your land.'

Meditate on this: (Deu 26:12-13 NKJV)  "When you have finished laying aside all the tithe of your increase in the third year; the year of tithing; and have given it to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, so that they may eat within your gates and be filled, {13} "then you shall say before the LORD your God: 'I have removed the holy tithe from my house, and also have given them to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, according to all Your commandments which You have commanded me; I have not transgressed Your commandments, nor have I forgotten them.

The children here in Vietnam need your prayers and your help!

PLEASE HELP A CHILD THIS MONTH
