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.

(2 Cor 9:7-11 NKJV) So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. {8} And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. {9} As it is written: "He has dispersed abroad, He has given to the poor; His righteousness endures forever." {10} Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness, {11} while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God.


Most of our children will not experience Christmas without our help; please send a little extra for a joyful Christmas. Will you help us give a small $10 gift to all our children? Or if you are a sponsor, you may want to do even more for your child.


Humanitarian Mission on December 15


LOVE wishes to do a humanitarian mission in Tra My District of Quang Nam on December 15. We are waiting for approval from the people’s Committee. We hope to provide blankets, clothing, noodles and other food stuffs, etc. to poor minority children and elderly, including Agent Orange victims. LOVE will also provide a bus and truck for transport. The cost of everything has escalated to $2,000. Please pray for this faith mission. This is the same area that has suffered several earth quakes in the last 3 months.

Medical Mission

On November 24, LOVE joined in a medical mission with a group of Christian Vietnamese and Korean doctors and nurses who practice here in Danang.


We provided needed medicines and issued milk and food for the poor in Hạ Nông Hamlet, Điện Phước commune, Điện Bàn District of Quang Nam. Some of LOVE’s staff joined this trip to assist the medical team. 370 people were treated.

Tragedy of 3 orphan children

After visiting Lien Chau’s sister, Nam Tran, today (12 Nov), I would like to tell you about her updated situation. She was moved to another ward for patients who overcome dangerous situations. Her mind is normal and she can recognize everyone. After four times of having her whole-blood filtered, her septicemia is now in control. She is able to breathe a little on her own but is still on a respirator. Her lungs are still weak, as both lungs had collapsed. Until her lungs are better, the doctors will carry out kidney dialysis for her. Her broken pelvis is healing and after her pelvis gets better, the doctors will carry out an operation to correct her need for wearing a colostomy.


The hospital fees reach over over $9,600 now (not including four times of whole-blood filtration, at $960 each). Her insurance is expected to pay around $4700. Dantri newspaper has raised $1200 and our supporters at LOVE and G4Kids $1000. With continuing costs, she is going to need at least another $5000. Please continue to pray for her, her sister who had a broken ankle, and their younger brother, Phan Quang Hop, who we have posted as needing a sponsor.

Please pray for these 3: The girls for physical healing, and all 3 for emotional and spiritual healing. If you can help financially, let me know.

Other medical cases to pray for:

To the left is Le Thi Nhu Y’s father, a 68 yr. old brick mason. He fell from high scaffolding, hitting his head. Doctors operated to relieve bleeding in his brain.


To the right is Kim Quy's brother, receiving chemotherapy for cancer of the lymphocytes.

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, 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 $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 mother has suffered from pain in her spinal column for a long time and she is only able to do the little easy things in farming. My father is the main earner in our crowded family but his income is low and unstable. In addition, we have lost our crops lately due to the climate change. My father is also trying to do whatever job he can find to earn more income but it is not much. Thus, we are always living in destitution. Four of us are at school and we don’t have any chance to take extra classes which are needed to help us pass the tests for middle and high school as well as college later on.

Family members:

· Tran Van Cuu (1967)- Father- Farmer

· Nguyen Thi Tinh (1962)-Mother-Farmer

· Tran Thi Thu Thuy (1993)-Sister-learning sewing at the vocational school

· Tran Thi Thu Diem (1996)-Sister-11th grade

LOVE’s note: A family sponsorship is highly recommended.

(Mark 10:21 NKJV) Then Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, "One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me."

(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 by clicking on child or contact Reggie.
