Love Of Vietnam Expressed

By

Helping the poor and needy

www.loveofvn.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.

November 2012

We at LOVE wish to take time to gives thanks

first to God

and to each of you for being a vessel God works through, for your prayers, for sharing yourselves with the children, and your financial contributions.

May you have a blessed and happy Thanksgiving!

 

IN OCTOBER

October is usually a quiet month, but we have been buzzing with extra activities. There was nearly $2,000 in extra giving. This includes 2 laptops and other extra gifts and help to the families below.

We have had 4 serious emergencies. Three families with deaths in their family. The 12-year sister of one of our children was hit by a truck (Aug.) while returning from school on her bicycle and killed instantly. The father of another died after a long fight with cirrhosis of the liver, and the father of one of our new families was killed in a motorbike accident.

 

In addition, a brother of another child is being helped as he just had an operation for a cancer of the lymphocytes.

 

And the amount above doesn’t include the money that is still coming in from many of you, as you have responded to the accident of Nam Tran and Lien Chau.

 

The sponsors of these children and others have opened their hearts and have given sacrificially. Thank you all.

Looking Ahead

 

November will be a month of planning and fund raising.

  1. We will be making plans for a humanitarian mission in December, carrying clothing, blankets, food, etc. to a very poor ward in Da Nang or Quang Nam. The cost will range around $1,500.

  2. We’re going to provide Christmas parties and gifts to each of our children, about $3,000.

  3. A medical (or dental) mission in November and/or December. About $1000 per mission.

In the spirit of the celebration of our LORD Jesus’ birth, please give extra to make these things possible. We have some funds already, but need to raise an extra $4,000 or more if possible to make all this happen. Just notate "Jesus Celebration" with your donation.

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.

 

PLEASE HELP

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.

Please Sponsor me!

About me: My mother has suffered from pain in her spinal column for a long time and she is only able to do the little easy things in farming. My father is the main earner in our crowded family but his income is low and unstable. In addition, we have lost our crops lately due to the climate change. My father is also trying to do whatever job he can find to earn more income but it is not much. Thus, we are always living in destitution. Four of us are at school and we don’t have any chance to take extra classes which are needed to help us pass the tests for middle and high school as well as college later on.

Family members:

  • Tran Van Cuu (1967)- Father- Farmer

LOVE’s note: A family sponsorship is highly 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.
