Love Of Vietnam Expressed

By

Helping the poor and needy

Web page: 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 full year

Our two busiest times of the year are December to February, which includes Christmas and Tet, and June through August when we are busy visiting many new applicatants, and reviewing, evaluating, and visiting all our sponsored and scholarship children, as well as measuring all our children for uniforms and getting ready for the new school year.

 

Now we are back to the normal every day work. I wish I could say routine, but few of our days are routine. At least we can take a deep breath and say it has slowed down to handing out scholarships 10 times a month at 10 different locations, and rice twice a month at two locations. In addition to that is meeting our sponsored children 5 times a month at five different locations. Furthermore, we have a few new applicatants each month to visit, hospital visits, and other calls for help, and screening children’s teeth and eyes.

 

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 $20 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 $20 a month or the whole family for $35 a month, and will pray for them, write and encourage them.

I have a sponsor? Who, me?
I really have a sponsor!

Hay, I am being held by a LOVE worker. It must be true.

This is the only place I have to go. What’s a toilet, we don’t have one. I bathe here too.

I have a new sponsor too. My mom and dad will worry less about my future

A TESTIMONY FROM A SUPPORTER

OUR CHAT TOGETHER:

THOMAS: SIN PUTS WALLS BETWEEN US ALL. WE MUST EXPOSE IT IN THESE LAST DAYS, SO THAT WE CAN BE HEALED.THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED TO US ALL.

Reggie: yes and Satan's oldest trick is to keep us so busy, we don't really learn to love.

THOMAS: I REALIZE THE DEVIL HAS BEEN REAL BUSY, WHILE WE WERE ASLEEP.  THIS PAST 4 YEARS AFTER I GRADUATED FROM COLLEGE, I ALLOWED THE DEVIL TO DECEIVE ME. IT WAS A TEST, THAT TOOK ME ALMOST 4 YEARS TO OVERCOME. WHEN MY WIFE AND I GRADUATED FROM SCHOOL, BOTH OF US START TO HAVE MORE MONEY THAN WE USED TO. SLOWLY, I START TO DEVELOP THE SPIRIT OF MATERIALISM WITHIN ME. 

SPIRIT OF COMPROMISE SETS IN. I SAID I WOULDN'T BECOME LIKE MY BROTHER  WORKING MY BUTT OFF IN VANITY, AND I DID.  FOR 3 AND 1/2 YEARS I LIVED IN FALSE HAPPINESS, BECOMING A DEFEATED CHRISTIAN, NOT CARRYING THE CROSS. JUST GOING TO CHURCH AND PAYING TITHES TO GET BARELY BY. TRULLY, I WAS HOPING SOMEONE IN CHURCH WOULD NOTICE MY PITY STATE AND LEND A HAND, BUT NO ONE DID.

Reggie: how could they, most are the same way.

THOMAS: 3 MONTHS AGO, I WAS VERY FED UP WITH MY MISERABLE LIFE. SO I ASK GOD FOR A BREAKTHRU. IT WASN'T EASY, BUT I DID IT.

I WRESTLED WITH GOD ONE NIGHT.

Reggie: ok Jacob

THOMAS: HE TOLD ME TO CONFESS MY SINS IN FRONT OF ALL THE MEN AT CHURCH. MOST OF THEM.

LONG BEHOLD. I WAS APPLAUDED. THEY TOLD ME HOW THEY NEEDED TO HEAR THOSE WORDS

THOMAS: WHEN THE LORD OPEN MY EYES. I REALIZE HOW MUCH FELLOW MEN AND WOMEN IN OUR CHURCH WERE GOING THRU THE SAME BONDAGE.

EVEN OUR PASTOR.

Reggie: God just needs a man humble enough to confess and he can allow many to see themselves through your eyes.

THOMAS: I REALIZE ALL THE DEVIL HAS TO DO IS SQEEZE THE NECK OF THE  PASTOR AND THE WHOLE CHURCH WILL DIE.

SO THE DEVIL HAS BEEN VERY BUSY . THE GOOD NEWS IN ALL THIS IS I'M FINALLY PICKING UP MY SWORD AGAIN TO GO TO BATTLE. THIS TIME NO HOLDS-BAR. I HAVE THE DESIRE TO BECOME A YOUTH PASTOR FOR NOW.

(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 clicking on  children or contact Reggie.

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