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.

September 2018

 

 

Summer break is almost over and most of the children said they had a boring or nothing-to-do holiday when being asked about how they spent it. Aiming at encouraging and bringing them a new motivation for an upcoming new school-year and praising those with excellent study results, we threw a cozy dinner party at a buffet restaurant. Nearly 60 children sponsored by American and Asian patrons attended together with LOVE’s staff. All these children originated from poor and needy families so this is certainly the first time ever in life they could have such a nice chance. The party had started with some funny ice-breaking games before Ms. My Dong had a short welcome to everyone as an opening remark. Then over 10 chosen excellent students were awarded with a sum of cash gift. Right after that was video watching time when they could see a clip about LOVE’s general activities and the sharing of some graduates who used to be in LOVE’s program and now have a better life with a good job. Ms. My Dong closed it with a summary of video content and some encouragements and advice for the children. Some fathers or mothers sent us thank you messages for giving their children such a great time so this is truly an evidence for us to believe all the children did enjoy the nice time and the good food. In the future, we would love to create more group/community activities to give them new inspiration and motive. Please do not forget us and the children in your prayers and donations. We really need more outreaching hands from you.

Has Your Child Been Given a Bicycle?

 

Bicycle is always an essential and vital transport to school for each student. In Vietnam, children will be back to school on September 5th this year as normally and August is definitely a good time to give them a new bicycle as a caring thoughful gift. This will surely be a motivation for the children to do better in a new year. We could bless 13 children with nice new bicycles this time. LOVE would like to offer our big thanks to a kind German donor from G4kids for supporting us to do this event.

Bicycles in line ready for giving out

Ms. My Dong greeted the children and gave some instructions and advices on careful usage.

Girls get normal pink bikes while boys go with black&red ones with riser handlebars.

Mom, Ill ride it in the park nearby our house this afternoon”, Bao said.

The most wonderful thing we received on that day was lots of beautiful happy smilles and thanks.

Extra Gifts

As it is written, "He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever."
2 Corinthians 9:9 ESV

Like always, many children were blessed with extra gifts this month!

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.

With $120, we can only provide 50% of rent support for students. If you have a generous heart and want to contribute more, you are highly appreciated.

**Reserve fund pays for house furnishings, repairs, Christian training camps, outreach programs, etc.

 

(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.
