Love Of Vietnam Expressed


Helping the poor and 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.

Some pictures from Hoi An, Phuong (one of LOVE’s representives) lives in Hoi An and spent most of the week trapped on the 2nd floor of his house where water filled the lower floor. There was no power or phone for over a week.

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 $25 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, who lives in Danang.   

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.


Share your love and faith

These children urgently need sponsors who will support a child for $25 a month or the whole family for $40 a month, and will pray for them, write and encourage them.

We are very grateful to God because the Typhoon, less than 100km out, made a 45o turn to the South, saving Danang from a direct hit. Some areas such as Thang Binh, Dai Loc, Hoi An and NHS in Danang are still flooded and we are waiting for reports of needs of LOVE’s families.

Rebuilding a house damaged by a tropical storm the 1st of August.

Đỗ Thị Minh Nguyệt’s family - what more can happen to this family?

1.  Two years ago the father was critically injured in a traffic accident, and was in a coma and paralyzed for many months. He was moved to HCMC and underwent several operations. He returned home a year ago; he can walk and mentally seems good, but still has an obstruction and continues to live with his trachea incision open to breathe.

2. Thanh - the mother got pregnant soon after he returned home. During her pregnancy they found a tumor. The baby was born and had a blood virus and was critical for several weeks and after a few more weeks was allowed to go home.

3. During the baby’s critical period, the father’s mother had a stroke while visiting the hospital, she was to go with the father to HCMC for another operation and Thanh (the mother) was to have the tumor removed. Chi and I were to care for the baby & Nguyet until the mother was able to care for them. Thanh, who had entertained thoughts of suicide during this time heard and responded to the good news of Jesus Christ.

4. The 1st week of September, Danang had a Tropical Depression off the coast and it has endured strong winds and very heavy rain w/much flooding and part of their roof and walls fell down..

5. Thanh has endured this new trial with peace and calmness and God has responded with funds to rebuild and furnish their house.

About me:  I am living with my mother, a sister and a brother. I wish my family will have enough basic daily need. We are living in a house built by a charity fund. I myself want to go to school and have higher education as high as possible. We are in debt $1500.  My mother’s job is not stable, she used to be a street vendor, but she was not permitted to do this anymore, so she changed her job.  Now, her job is buying and selling recycle, and it is not stable too. It is lucky that nobody in my house get illness. I hope our family would receive help.

Family members:

·         Tran Thi Mong Hong (1972) Mother

·         Le Thi Hoang Nhi      (1995) Sister

·         Le Hoang Duc          (1997) Brother 

LOVE’s note: A Family sponsorship is recommended, but a child sponsorship is appreciated


(Ezekiel 16:49 NKJV)  "Look, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughter had pride, fullness of food, and abundance of idleness; neither did she strengthen the hand 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.

If you are interested in sponsoring a child, please check the information

God bless you for your prayers and financial support for the children!
