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.

January 2013

All of us at Love Of Vietnam Expressed Pray that God will prosper each of you in 2013 for your hearts of love toward the poor and needy in Vietnam.

(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.

December Humanitarian Mission to Tra My

Preparing, wrapping and loading gifts at our office.

The team leaving our office.

Transferring from car to motorbike and continuing to move toward the destination.

By My Dong: After about a 3-hour car travel and 20-minute drive by motorbike, we at last reached the 1st destination – the People Committee building of Tra Son commune. When we approached, many citizens were there waiting for us, so we quickly unloaded and got everything ready for distributing to them. Fifty Christmas gifts (each included one box of instant noodles, a blanket, a box of cooking oil, sugar, fish sauce and spice) were given out to the old, the poor, and needy here.

The next location is a new type of Duong Yen Tin Lanh church named Tan Hiep. 70 more Christmas gifts for families and 60 gifts for children were handed out in joy and happiness of the givers as well as the receivers. We, the LOVE staff, and volunteers had also a nice chance to talk, take photos, and have a little fun with the church kids who mostly are originated from needy families of Kadong minority tribe. Seeing the kids in shabby clothes and their faces filled with mud and/or stains, we can feel for them and pray that they’ll soon truly acknowledge Jesus as the Savior of life; then He’ll guide and lead them in all their ways. And later on when they’re grown-up, their lives will be changed to a better one in His will.

The children in great joy getting the gifts.

Time for fun with the cute kids and some souvenir photos!

We, afterwards, could also have an opportunity to visit another worshipping point of Duong Yen church – Tra Tan brand where we can see the contrast between the hospitality of the Christians here and the deprivation of the material facilities. Let’s pray for them so that in the future they’ll be supported and can afford to build a church (in the true sense of the word) to bring all honor and grace to the Lord our God in this remote mountainous area.

Before heading home, we were taken to Duong Yen church which is under construction (so happy to see a new church is being built) and River Tranh hydroelectric dam which is, at present, in public attention due to the recent earthquakes in north Tra My.

More 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 parents were divorced when I was very young. My younger sister and I are living with my mother. My father does not support us financially, therefore, all the burdens placed on my mother’s shoulders. She has to work daytime even in the evening to earn for our daily needs. I love my mother very much but I am too young to help her in finance. Moreover, my younger sister and I are in school so we are looking forward to receiving your help to cover our school fees.

Family members:

* Tran Thi Vy Nhan (Oct 27, 1978) – Mother

* Tran Thanh Van (April 16, 2006) (in grade 1) – Younger Sister

LOVE’s note: A family sponsorship is 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."

If you are interested in sponsoring a child, please check the information by clicking on child or contact Reggie.

If you live in Europe, please contact our sister-organization www.G4Kids.de
God bless you for your prayers and financial support for the children!
