Love Of Vietnam Expressed

by
 Helping the Poor & 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.

Easter Every Day

He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. —Matthew 28:6

A friend of mine, who is a preschool teacher, overheard an animated conversation among her students. Little Maria threw out the question: “Who loves God?” All of them responded, “I do! I do! I do!” Billy said, “I love Jesus.” Kelly protested, “But He died.” Billy said, “Yeah, but every Easter He rises from the dead!”

Obviously, young Billy’s understanding of the meaning of Easter is still developing. We know that Jesus died once for all (Rom. 6:10; Heb. 10:12) and, of course, rose from the dead once. Three days after paying the penalty of our sins on the cross, the sinless Jesus conquered death by rising from the grave and breaking the power of sin. It was this final sacrifice of blood that opened the only way for us to have a relationship with God now and a home with Him forevermore.

“Christ died for our sins, . . . He was buried, and . . . He rose again the third day” (1 Cor. 15:3-4). He has promised that He is preparing a place for us (John 14:1-4), and He will someday return. One day we will be with our risen Savior.

That’s why every year at Eastertime—in fact, every day of the year—we have reason to celebrate the resurrection of our Savior. “I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth” (Ps. 34:1)

AN AUSTRIAN COUPLE VISITED IN MARCH

“A really good day, a good Organization, good to know who we are sponsoring, etc.”, said Mr. Norbert and his wife after having a happy day to meet for the 1st time their sponsored child after 7 years of sponsorship through G4Kids/LOVE. During the day, they both have a good chance to talk, to encourage, to laugh and to do some sightseeing tours together by walking, cycling and boating around the beautiful Hoi An ancient city. Before starting to drive 60 kilometers to their home town, Khanh and his mother joyfully expressed that they were extremely happy to meet their dear sponsor in person, they were happy to see their wish came true. They enjoyed the day very much, the mother almost forgot about her weak health, and certainly they have been so thankful for the sponsorship which helps the family tremendously.

THE 12th-GRADERS

The 12th level is not only the final year at high school but also the most stressful hard-working time for students. These students will attend the two-in-one exam in June which is the graduation and college entrance exam and it’s considered as one of the big important milestones in their lives. They have been working studiously for this exam since a long while ago but starting from March, they have to focus all their best in consolidation. To encourage and motivate them, we gave them an extra donation for extra class fee in March. All of them were excited and inspired to get it.

For those who decide to find a job and support their families after high school graduation, the sponsorship will end successfully with the high school diploma. The others who register for a seat at college or university will need to inform LOVE’s staff of the result and the admission process. In case they pass, the sponsor will be asked to continue their monthly support.

Let’s pray for the best result for them 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.

 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.

Prayer corner: LOVE’s Founder and Vietnam Director, Mr. William Reginald Coward (Reggie), who left Vietnam to unite with his family in America in July 2016, is going to return to Vietnam from May 29 till June 25, 2017. On his visit to Vietnam this time, he will be accompanied with his two daughters, Hannah and Anna and his adopted Vietnamese granddaughter, Andrea. Tickets are bought and visa requirement documents are now processed. Please pray that God will bless Reggie with great health, strength and security and he would have a safe, nice flight and a marvelous time in Vietnam. Honestly, when he left Vietnam last year, we had never thought that we could have a chance to see him again in Vietnam. We give big thanks to God for all the awesome things happening to LOVE, Reggie and all the staff.>

About me: My family is in the poor household list of the local government. We live with our grandmother who is old and weak. My father is a motorbike taxi driver with a low and unstable income. My mother doesn’t have specific job and tries to do anything that other people ask. She cannot do heavy work because it’s hard for her to breathe. She usually cleans house for others once a week and washes dishes for a food stall. I have a brother who is in grade 3 and a sister at kindergarten. As for me, I am a sixth grader and I love English. I wish to take an extra class in English, but my family cannot afford to pay my extra class fee. I hope to get helped to have a better study condition.

Family members:

  • Hoang Thi Canh (1936) - Grandma

  • Hoang Van Thuy (1972) – Father

  • Nguyen Thi Tuyet (1972) – Mother

  • Hoang Thai Trong (2008) – Brother – 3 grader

  • Hoang Dieu Vy (2011) – Sister – Kindergarten


LOVE’s note: A family sponsorship is highly recommended.

 

(Luke 14:13-14 NIV)  But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous."

(Prov 31:8-9 NIV)  "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights 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.
