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.

CHRISTMAS MISSION TRIP

On December 22, 2017 LOVE had a mission trip to reach out to the poor, needy families and the elderly in Binh Tri ward, Binh Son district, Quang Ngai province. Here we gave out 100 family gifts and 80 children ones. As in the previous years, a family gift includes a blanket, a box of instant noodles and an envelope of cash. Most of those coming were the old people and some even live alone without any children. Some are disabled and could not come so the neighbor helped. All of them were very happy and grateful to get such a meaningful gift at the end of the year and many said thanks to LOVE. We pray that we can increase the number of gifts next year as 100 is not enough to cover the number of the poor and the elderly in a remote region. We also need more prayers and donations from all of you.

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 family is very needy and quite crowded now. Only my father, a mason who has an unstable and low income, is the main earner in my family and he can earn nothing during the months of rainy season. My mother had born 4 children for my father before she deserted us. My father then remarried, my step mother was an accountant before she bore a baby girl lately for my father. She is now staying at home to take care of the baby and us and accompanying her is our grandma who is old and often endures vestibular disorder and ischemia. We have been living in a small rented room for years. As a result, the burdens of paying the rented-room, school fees, daily basic needs and food are badly heavy on my father’s shoulders. He and our grandma often have to borrow money with interest for family’s expenses. Our entire family definitely needs a helping hand monthly to help us overcome this severe condition. I definitely want to stay at school, to work hard and to reach a better future and I do wish the same for my siblings.

Family members:

  • Huynh Thi Le Thuy (1965) – grandma
  • Tran Hoang Phuc (1990) – father – mason
  • Nguyen Thi Hue (1990) – step mother
  • Tran Hoang Nguyen Hoang Trang (2010) – 2nd grade
  • Tran Hoang Nguyen Huyen Tram ( 2012) – Sister
  • Tran Hoang Nguyen Phuc Tri (2013) – brother
  • Tran Hoang Nguyen Hue Trinh (2016) – 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.
