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.

HOA BAC’S CHILDREN

LOVE’s Vice Director, Ms. Dong, had a meeting with all the Hoa Bac’s sponsored children and their families at the ward’s meeting hall in April. Hoa Bac is a mountainous ward of Hoa Vang district, which lies in the northwest of Danang city and at a distance of 20 km away from the city center. It has a population of 3,877  inhabitants (in 2010) in an area of 33,846 ha. This is one of the most difficult and poorest areas in Danang. LOVE/G4kids is now sponsoring about 10 children in this ward and we would love to increase this number in the near future thanks to your kind-hearted support.

Ms. Dong met with the sponsored children, city police and the ward cadre.

VISITING CHILDREN’S HOMES

One of our most important duties every year is visiting the children’s homes and reevaluating their situations. Even though there are still many cases in difficulties and troubles, we are glad and cheerful to see some families’ living conditions and living standards have been improved and are better thanks to the sponsors’ kind help. We highly appreciate all your work and support for your sponsored families. Below are some of the photos of the children’s homes we visited in April.

In the pictures is Nhi’s grandmother. They’re living in a shabby cottage and cooking by wood.

Above are Thanh Tam’s family’s small old house in the countryside.

Thanh Roan’s family is now living in an old, cramped house of his grandmother's. They don’t even have enough space for sleeping at night and it gets worse on terribly hot days in summer.

EXTRA GIFTS, PARCELS AND LETTERS

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.

A birthday gift is something that some sponsors never forget. They truly bring blessings to their own sponsored children. The beautiful smiles of above kids prove it.

About me: At present, I am a 10th grader of Le Qui Don high school, a school for gifted students. My father, a taxi driver, is the main labor in the family, but he is enduring the backbone spine degeneration and his monthly income is not so stable. My mother is a street fish seller but due to the mass fish death lately in Vietnam central, she  can hardly earn income from her daily job. Three of us are in school and it costs my parents a lot of money, but luckily we are all doing very well at school in order not to turn their hearts down. I know my parents are facing financial issues so I am filling this application and you’re kindly asked to help us in this difficult time of my family so that three of us can finish our education.

Family members:

  • Ngo Ly Bao (1971) – Father – Taxi driver

  • Bui Thi Mai (1973) – Mother – Street fish seller

  • Ngo Uyen Phuong (2003) – Sister – 8th grader

  • Ngo Mai Bao Anh (2007) – 4th  grader


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.
