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.

Mission team from Hope Church of Singapore

http://www.hopesingapore.org.sg/

 

Besides the normal activities of the month, the highlight of our August was the occasion to welcome our friends from Hope Church Singapore. The team consisted of 5 lovely people who were so passionate about sharing God’s love to others that they had decided to spend their vacation on a mission trip to Vietnam just to glorify God and make their holiday a meaningful one.

 

 

A day with Family 5

On the first day, the Singapore team was excited about meeting with the children from family 5. We made acquaintances with children through many games which were prepared before. We listened to children sharing their lives, families and hobbies. Look at the happy smiles on children’s face; we were happy for making the simple thing for them. We had a big lunch together and gave them many nice small gifts. After an interesting day, we left Family 5 in happiness, and we wished they would be good in health and studying.

A morning at Danang Church with College Students

 

On the second day the team was able to meet with students from Da Nang Church. With the desire to encourage the students in their walk with God, our Singaporean friends had carefully prepared a sharing session about the topic of “Persistent Prayers”. After a few minutes getting to know the students through conversations and ice-breaker games, we started with praise and worship and committed the time to God’s lead. The message about P.U.S.H, which stands for “Pray Until Something Happens” and the testimony from our sister Joanne about how God had led her to go for a relief mission in Japan after the tsunami, really touched the students’ hearts.  That was also an inspiration for them to get out of their comfort zone and really start to do something for Him. We closed the session with a time of prayer when we split in different groups to pray for various needs of the students regarding their health, their orientation in life, as well as their desire to serve God.

 

In the afternoon, we got the chance to visit some student houses where we spent another lovely time with the students, got to know them better, caught a glimpse of their living conditions and also took the time to pray for them.

 

To the students, this was not only a chance for them to make friends with foreigners, but also a reminder from God so that they would be encouraged to keep praying, trusting in Him, and being bold in sharing His Gospel and His love to others. And to our Singaporean friends, they had really pleased God in reaching out to His people and glorified Him through what they were doing here in Vietnam. After all, thanks to God’s grace and providence, everyone has benefited so much from this precious occasion. May God continue to send His people to Vietnam to be a blessing to His Vietnamese children.

Medical Mission by Quang Nam Churches

There were about 240 elderly patients who came to have medical checks and what makes us really happy and proud is that a saying of "May God bless you" kept being repeated by one of the volunteers when she delivered gifts to each one of them. Also, the words “God is love” was on the 240 plastic bags given to each patient. It is truly a blessed day for all.

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 father died years ago because of lung cancer. There is only my mother raises four of us sisters. My oldest sister has mental illness and she is in Quang Nam Center. My second sister just passed the entrance exam to a University in Da Nang city, and she will start her student life this September. My next sister will be in 12th grade in this new school year. Previously, in order to pay for the treatment of my father, my mother had to borrow money from the state bank and individuals amounting to nearly $3000. Her daily income from the selling vegetables at the market is about $3 and it is certainly not enough to pay for school fee for three of us at school and the debt. I look for helps from the sponsors.

Family members:

·       Dinh Thi Trung (1963) - Mother-selling vegetables

·       Nguyen Thi Hoai Thi (1985) – Sister-Mental illness

·       Nguyen Thi Nguyet Hac (1995)-Sister-1st year student

·       Nguyen Thi Ngoc Huyen (1996)- Sister-12th grade


LOVE’s note:  A family sponsorship is recommended or a child sponsorship for her and a student sponsorship for Hac, but any help would be appreciated.

               

(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.
