Love Of Vietnam Expressed


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 L.O.V.E.

March 2012

Dear friends and supporters,

Again, I have the opportunity to share with you about the work of LOVE and our needs for prayers. I thank God for His provision and guidance and thank you for your support and prayers for us and the mission of LOVE.

We have lost sponsors because of job insecurities or loss of jobs. In all, we have lost sponsors for about 25 children. About half of these have found new sponsors. As a step of faith, we have opened new student houses. We have 3 now that need sponsors.

We pray for all of you to prosper, especially in health, mind, and spirit. Please pray with us, for the children and for LOVE’s staff members. Please write and respond to your sponsored child or student house as often as you can. Your letters are a great encouragement to them.

Thao, LOVE’s bookkeeper, will leave us as she is getting married on March 15, and then move to Ho Chi Minh city with her husband. Please pray for Thao and her new family, that God will continue to bless them and use them for His work. And please pray for Tham who is taking over  Thao's work.

Please pray that Chi, Hannah, Anna, and I can make a trip to the US. I hope to pay all interest bearing loans taken out to rebuild our house (from typhoon damage) by the end of March. Then we will begin saving up for a trip to the USA. We would like to come this summer as I have not been back since January of 2005, and Chi and Hanna made their first trip in February of 2007.  This will be the first trip for Anna and the four of us together.

I would like to meet all of you who are praying for Vietnam and for us. You are located in so many states that this, too, seems impossible. Maybe we can meet when many of you will be able to come to Vietnam to meet us and your sponsored children.

And you keep on giving!

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 $30 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.



Share your love and faith

These children urgently need sponsors who will support a child for $30 a month or the whole family for $50 a month, and will pray for them, write and encourage them.

Sometimes extra cash

Usually clothes

Then there are birthdays

Cash gift and letters from the sponsors

About me: My name is Tran Minh Hai. I am a 9 year old boy and I am learning in grade 3. I am living with my mother and a 6 year old sister, who is learning in kindergarten. My parents divorced 6 years ago and we receive no support from him. My mother is a garbage service worker and her income is only enough for our food daily and some other basic expenditures. I hope to get some supports so that I and my younger sister have a good chance to have a good education.

Family members:

· Tran Thi Vy Nhan (1974) – Mother – worker

· Tran Thanh Van (2006) – younger sister - kindergarten

LOVE’s note: A family sponsorship is recommended.


(Mark 10:21 NKJV) Then Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, "One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me."

(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 child or contact Reggie.

If you live in Europe, please contact our partner-organization www.G4Kids.de

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