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.

THE BEAUTY OF CHRISTMAS

Christmas is the most beautiful season of the year. It is not beautiful because of the splendid decorations in the shopping mall, or the shimmering lights all over the streets. It is beautiful because it is a symbol of love expressed by the act of giving. “For God so loved the world that he gave...”

There are times when we wish for a very cold Christmas to get a chance to wear nice newly bought warm clothes to hang out for Christmas. Perhaps we have forgotten that there are the poor out there that are shivering by the cold, just hope a shirt is warm enough, just hope it won’t be colder. The true spirit of Christmas is a reflection of the love and selflessness. It is about giving without a thought of getting. It is happiness because we see joy in people.

It is not the coldness of the weather but the coldness of the human heart that killed “The Little Match Girl”. Hopefully, during this Christmas season, many people will come to know about God’s love, and welcome God into their hearts through our acts of love and sharing. We can give those matches, but God can bring them warmth. And who knows, in a very cold dark night of their lives, God truly came into their hearts.

Our hope and prayer are that we may not get so caught up in the pressures of the season that we place our emphasis on the wrong things and miss the true meaning of Christmas - loving and giving. Christmas is not about opening our presents but opening our hearts.

Thank you dear our Sponsors from US & G4Kids - partners of L.O.V.E for accompanying us to implement the program

GIVING LOVE

FOR A WARM WINTER”

on November 13

 

Every year, the central Vietnam suffers dozens of storms, big and small, accompanied by floods in many places. And this year is no exception. Such extreme weather conditions cause many difficulties for the people here. With that in mind, L.O.V.E and G4kids worked together to continue to implement this rainy season support program for all families in our sponsorship program by offering family gifts including rice, instant noodles, cooking oil, milk and more.

Due to the erratic weather in Danang, this year we continued to hold this activity at an indoor stadium. We have given nearly 300 baskets to families. Everything went very well and everyone has arrived. We thank God for the great weather that day, no rain and no strong wind. It was a beautiful Friday, the 13th . You can see it in the following photos:

With the enthusiastic help from the student volunteers in LOVE’s Student House program,

the preparation was done quickly. Thank you very much!

There are people who come very early

Stand in line

Happy smiles on their face . Sometimes happiness is simply seeing the joy on the faces of others

The program went well and ended well.

Everyone left safely with bright smiles on their lips!

 

Also this month, L.O.V.E teamed up with some church brothers to visit and give out 200 food support gifts to the poor ethnic minorities in upland areas in Quang Ngai and Dong Giang, Quang Nam, where they suffered heavy losses after a storm.

Although the roads are still difficult, we still try everything for everyone. Thank God and thank you the sponsors who have also accompanied us in prayers and financial participation. You are truly a blessing for the people here.

 

 

We Are Looking For A Helping Hand From You

To BRING JOY and LOVE of CHRISTMAS TO THE MOUNTAINOUS CHILDREN

 We know about the extreme difficulties worldwide in COVID time and we hope and pray, that you are still able and willing to help the people in Vietnam like before.

Several of LOVE’s programs need your help:

Our medical missions and humanitarian missions need money donated

This year our Humanitarian mission needs $1500

Donations of $10, $15 or $50 add up.

 

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:  My father works as a welder and recent years his job has not been going well, so his income is truly low and unstable. My mother tries her best to collect scrap while taking care of my little sister in order to feed us in part. Yet, my family situation is not much improved. Now my family and I are living with grandmother in her house. I have 3 siblings. My older brother is looking for a job skill course to take. My younger brother is in kindergarten and my sister is still small. Although they both don’t go to school yet, my parents have to pay for their nutrition much. As for me, I am in grade 9. I wish to have a chance to take extra classes to complete my studies of this final year at secondary school successfully. It is difficult for my parents to cover our basic daily costs and our study fees. I do hope to receive your help to have a better study condition so that I will have a brighter future.
