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.

HEARING AID DONATION

On April 6, 2018, LOVE, in cooperation with GoodMorning company, happily organized a hearing aid donation event for the poor elderly and children who are suffering hearing loss. GoodMorning is a local brand of Starkey hearing aid Company (US) in Korea. Here, 10 poor people were given the free tinnitus test to decide how severe their hearing loss is. After undergoing several steps of tests with the audiologists, or hearing professionals, if qualified, they had installed a specific hearing aid with full instructions of how to use, adjust and maintain it carefully. Each costs from $200 to $400. Nine among 10 people were blessed on that day, which made them and their families happy as they would have never ever imagined they could hear well again like now. Many people experience hearing loss severe enough to hinder communication in Vietnam. We hope to be able to do more such medical programs in the future.

BIRGIT AND THE OTHER SPONSORS VISIT

In April 2018, we were happy to welcome Mrs. Birgit (President of our European Project Partner - G4Kids), her husband and 4 other donors from Germany in our new office location.

We are grateful for many unforgettable moments together. Now let’s hear, what they have to say:

Mrs. Birgit: “Besides meeting all G4Kids-sponsored children, talking about their progresses, their situations and special needs, I enjoyed working with LOVE-staffs. It is not easy to take care for so many children who live in extremely difficult circumstances. What makes it more difficult is having to deal with our demands and our donor’s expectations. Our donors - who are normally the children’s patrons - expect that all their money is used only for their children’s needs and welfare.

But, this work can only be performed well, when working conditions are sufficient. That’s why my husband and I had the new office equipped with practical desks. I was especially glad to see that also the “4 holidaying patrons” helped generously to equip a “waiting and talking area” where visitors can sit conveniently. The leftover will help with the office rent – which is another concern. Prices are continuously rising in Vietnam – so each added amount for maintenance, no matter how small, is highly appreciated.

As always it was our great pleasure to meet with our personally sponsored children and to witness the other children’s and patron’s happiness. They got easily acquainted to each other and created lots of memorable events. Thanks to LOVE’s staff, we had a dinner in Da Nang together, visited Asia Park and arranged the bye-bye-evening in Hoi An.”

Mr. Jörn: “I’m very very happy to get to know you all. I spent unforgettable wonderful days in Vietnam! Simply undescribable!!!!
I am so grateful for G4Kids’ and LOVE’s collaboration – everything is how I wished and hoped for. I regret no single cent I ever spent to help. My heartfelt thanks to all.”

Mrs. Monika: “Birgit, I know how dedicated you’ve always been to this work. Now I’ve seen the fruits with my own eyes. Everything is running so well. You are doing the right thing.”

 

Mr. Michael: “Our time in Vietnam passed by too quickly. We shared so many fantastic experiences and saw a lot. Our sponsored kids were so nice and kind and we patrons enjoyed every single minute. Also we as a traveling group got along with each other very well. I thank my fellow travelers Karin, Monika and Jörn, LOVE staff and Birgit and Günter.” Mrs. Karin: “It’s my 3rd time in Vietnam. When I came, my heart felt heavy, because last year my sponsored girl left the program after 9 years. I could not meet her again. How glad I am now, that I decided to take on new sponsorships. Both girls are so nice and loving. When we had to part, we all cried. If ever possible, I’ll come again.”

Mr. Günter: “My last visit to Da Nang lies 7 years back. – I’m greatly astonished at how Da Nang is developing into a modern city with good job chances. The most important thing is to finish school and learn a trade or profession. Children know that and study eagerly – be it in kindergarten, elementary, secondary or high school. At college or even university. Our contributions make that possible - it’s always been my pleasure to support that cause.”

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.

Please Sponsor me!

About me: Working as a temporary worker in the acacias forest near our home, which is located in a remote and mountainous area, and with a quite low and unstable income seems to be the only choice for my parents. Yet, my mother has been busily taking care of 3 of us lately, especially our youngest one who is still small and easily suffers from the common illness of a small child so my father turns to be the main one to work in my family. As a result, our monthly income hardly meets the basic needs of our family and it even gets worse during the rainy months. I hope to receive some extra help so we can be secured to stay at school and have a good education and nutrition.

Family members:

  • Nguyen Dinh Nhan (1982) – Father

  • Bui Thi Dung (1987) – Mother

  • Nguyen Thi Binh An (2012) – Sister – kindergarten

  • Nguyen Thi Minh Tam (2015) – Sister


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.
