Love Of Vietnam Expressed

By

Helping the poor and needy

 www.loveofvietnamexpressed.org

(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.

A Volunteer serving God

Sponsors Needed

Right now, there is a needy child living in poverty who is waiting for a caring person like you. We have many children who need sponsors.

To see these children or to fill out an application go to our web site by clicking child. Without your help, many of these will not finish school. For just $25 a month you can see that the child you choose will break the cycle of poverty by getting a good education, better food, clothing, and shelter. For more information about these children or an application form, you can also contact Reggie, who lives in Danang.   

Please pray that we can find sponsors for all our children and put your prayers to work by sharing the need with your church, Sunday School Class, civic club, etc.

PLEASE HELP

Share your love and faith

These children urgently need sponsors who will support a child for $25 a month or the whole family for $40 a month, and will pray for them, write and encourage them.

Thank you Crisann and Christopher for sharing a little of your lives with us. Please come back again.

Changes

Our budget for rice is to provide 15 kg to 40 families at a cost of $158 a month. As of May, we provided rice to 43 Families at a cost of $431. By June, we will have exceeded our budget for the year.

Our choices are to reduce the program by either reducing the amount of rice/family or reduce the number of families; neither choice is agreeable. Finally, we decided drop the rice program and instead give a monthly stipend of 100.000 vnd per family.

This still means that our annual rice budget will double, but we do not have to drop families out of the program. We still need an extra $2,000 to meet this need, but at least we know the cost.

Jan. rice cost 5.900 vnd/kg

April rice cost 9.000 vnd/kg

Feb. rice cost 6.000 vnd/kg

May rice cost 10.000 vnd/kg

March  rice cost 7.500 vnd/kg

June rice cost ? vnd/kg

Good News:

We have an additional 15 children/families with sponsors now. A total of 68 in all. At present 45 children have sponsors in Germany and Austria, 11 in the U.S. (also most of our funds for other programs comes from America) and the rest of our sponsors from Singapore, Australia and Vietnam. We have many children who still need sponsors.

Thank you sponsors

Many of you go the extra mile with your children with extra money for birthdays and just to say we love you.  Some of you send packages with special things we cannot buy here.

Clothes & sandals

With summer coming, many houses have at most one fan, so fans are needed

We are sorry to announce that LOVE is unable to continue to fund the rice program for elderly and handicapped. Reason: lack of funds, and the price of rice has more than doubled since January. We will try to assist these people with a small stipend, as we are able.

(Ezekiel 16:49 NKJV)  "Look, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughter had pride, fullness of food, and abundance of idleness; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.

(Psa 41:1-3 NKJV)  Blessed is he who considers the poor; The LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. The LORD will preserve him and keep him alive, And he will be blessed on the earth; You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies. The LORD will strengthen him on his bed of illness; You will sustain him on his sickbed.

If you are interested in sponsoring a child, please check the information by

God bless you for your prayers and financial support for the children!
