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.

STUDENT HOUSES – OUR VISION for GOD’s KINGDOM - FUTURE of GOD's CHURCH

 In December, known as the month of Christmas, L.O.V.E decided to give Christmas trees as Christmas gifts and a little extra money for a Christmas meal to our 10 student homes. Several of our student houses invited unbelieving students from their colleges and universities to their houses where they celebrated the real meaning of Christmas, the birth of Christ, and introduced Him to their friends and then treat them to a special Christmas meal cooked by their hands. Some of LOVE's staff also attended the nights.

L.O.V.E and the sponsor funds paid the expenses, the students and Jesus did the rest.

 

 Elizabeth, Esther, Rachel and Jacob houses.

Many many unbelieve-friends have chance to sit around together…

In previous years, some student house used tinsels to make a “Christmas-tree” in the wall and decorated on it. But this year, all student houses have real new Christmas trees.
 

Colorful and delicious foods – made by student hands ^^

L.O.V.E would like to thank all the individuals who donated to this project. Donations came from places like USA, Vietnam and Australia. Some sponsors send their donation every month for this mission on Christmas season.

We are so grateful.

CHRISMAS GIFTs FOR THE CHILDREN

 “ Thank You for your gifts and some new games. We were happy. Will you come to us next year?”

We visited the church where we gave out the gifts to children

About 80 children gathered together in the small porch of the church to play mini games  

Girls are always enraptured to see and to receive baby dolls.

 

"WOW, HOW BLISSFUL TO GET SUCH WONDERFUL GIFTS!”

Thank You Lord for this past year and may your blessings and grace be upon us in this coming year.
