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.

On January 31, some of LOVE’s staff will be in Quang Ngai Province with a medical team from Danang Churches. We will report on this next month.

Feburary 19-20 is Tet (Lunar New Year) in Vietnam. LOVE offices will be closed from February 16 – 25 as this is a state holiday. Millions of Vietnamese will travel to visit families, including thousands flying from the USA and many other countries around the world to Vietnam. Pray for safety for all and especially for Christians to carry God’s message of love and salvation.

Sponsors Visit

Mrs. Angelika and her husband had 2 afternoons with their sponsored children and LOVE’s staff. On the first afternoon, time for getting to know each other, the couple spent some hours with children at LOVE’s office, talking and playing games with them. The second day was really a fantastic one when they and the children had a tour around Da Nang. The trip started from the office, then they were taken to the children’s school, then visited the Museum of Cham Sculpture. Lunch was at the “Banh Xeo” – a Vietnamese fried pancake restaurant. Afterwards, they had lots of fun playing games, shopping in the Big C mall, going for a stroll and taking some snaps at Dragon Bridge, then having a tour on the Sun Wheel. The awesome day out ended nicely at the cozy pizzeria, where the couple could enjoy the last happy time with children and saying goodbye to them. The sponsors were so kind and everybody had wonderful memorable moments.

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.

About me: My father has had sinusitis and a bad liver for years and this prevent him from going out to work and become the real breadwinner of the family but luckily he can do what his health allows him to do with the family’s farming work. My mother instead is the main one to earn the income and try to keep four of us in school but the arthritis also is a real trouble for her. We recently rebuilt our house since we live quite close to the river and the flood season keep coming annually but most of the money we borrow from our relative. I have started my 1st year in college in Da Nang city and this is truly another big costly bill for my mother too plus 3 of my siblings are staying and learning at my hometown. It is has overloaded for my mother so I do look forward to receive some helps.

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, {14} and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous."

(Luke 19:8-9 NIV)  But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, "Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount." {9} Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham.

(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.

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