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.

HUMANITARIAN MISSION TRIP IN HOA BAC

Thanks to the donation of Mrs. Jenifer Loan Huynh, a Vietnamese American sponsor of our two families, L.O.V.E had an opportunity to bring 100 gifts including a bag of 15 kg of rice and a box of instant noodles to Hoa Bac commune, one of the poorest and remote areas of Da Nang city. 80 children from Hoa Bac elementary school and 20 poor households living nearby were benefited from this Humanitarian Mission. We couldn’t imagine that we, the donator, two L.O.V.E’s staff and two volunteers received such a cute and innocent welcome from the children  with so many smiles and happy faces; one of the boys willingly sang a song to welcome us also. We then distributed the gifts and interacted with them and families for a while and it turned out that all parties had a few great happy hours. The happy smile also appeared on the donator’s face and she shared that she definitely wanted to do it again. She would perhaps not be there next time but she has L.O.V.E. After that, we visited her two sponsored families. To view the video of the mission, please click here.

A SINGAPOREAN SPONSOR’S VISIT

A Singaporean sponsor, Haixiong wrote, “In end April 2017, I was delighted to make this trip to Danang again. This time, I travelled with 3 colleagues from work to share with them beautiful Vietnam and the joy of sponsorship with LOVE.

We spent half a day at Asia Park with the children and their families. It was nice to see Tien’s and Thao Vy's families once more. However, I couldn't meet Y Ngan and her family due to illness. 

When we were in Asia Park, some of the children were shy firstly. But after a few rides, they got really excited. The daredevils among us are Thao Vy and her younger brother. Mid-way through, my colleague bought everyone a round of snacks to munch on! 

We ended the day with a ride at the Sun Wheel. The children also got to choose a favorite item at the gift shop to bring home. 

At the end of the day, it was hard to say goodbye. 

As Phuong always says, this could be their once-in-a-lifetime trip to Asia Park.

I want to tell the children to do well in school, get a good job when you grow up and the sky is the limits.

Special thanks to Phuong for sacrificing his precious weekend.

See you soon Danang.”

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.

Our sponsored children show a variety in the way they pick things as their birthday gifts. Girls tend to choose something nice like clothes, shoes, teddy bears,… while boys are getting something for safety or study such as dictionary, helmet, … However, a birthday cake is probably the most popular pick.

About me: I am a 7th grader of Huynh Ba Chanh Secondary School. My mother, who is a hospital cleaner, is the breadwinner in our family. My father is a drunkard. He endures several illnesses and does not earn any income to contribute to the family but he is a trouble-maker for us. Because of him, my mother sometimes has to run to a house of neighbor or relative to sleep in several nights to avoid being beaten. My grandmother is old and she is living with us, she receives a monthly allowance from the ward because she is the daughter of war hero and martyrs. There is an elementary school in front of our house and we are running a small shop to sell candies, cakes and some stuffs and it helps us to earn some source of income which partly serves the family’s daily needs. Our house was rebuilt a couple of years ago but we still owe the bank and relatives money. My mother is still paying the interests monthly. Four of us are at school age so this is truly a burden for my mother in term of finance. My brother is a marble worker but his low income is only enough for himself. We look for some help so 4 of us can be secured to stay at school as well as having a chance to take extra classes.

(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.
