Love Of Vietnam Expressed

(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.

 Helping the Poor & Needy

Tet (Lunar New Year)

Tet 2016 is February 7 - 10. This is a national Holiday in Vietnam with all government, schools, many businesses, and LOVE closed from February 8 to 12. This is similar to what westerners do during Christmas Holidays in that many travel to their relatives, share meals together and exchange gifts, especially gifts to children. A traditional gift is “Lucky Money” where money is put in a red envelope and given to the children when visiting many families and friends.

Humanitarian Mission to elderly in Hoa Vang district of Danang city

100 Christmas gifts including blankets, instant noodles, cooking oil, cookies, woolen caps, scarves and socks were given to the elderly and poor and needy households in two wards – Hoa Bac and Hoa Lien of Hoa Vang District. This humanitarian mission was carried out on December 22, three days before the Christmas Day. LOVE did it with an aim to bring these needy cases a warm happy Christmas.

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 died a few months ago because of a deadly disease, HIV. My mother then becomes the breadwinner in my family and this certainly puts a heavier burden on her skinny body. She is sewing but her income is not enough for our family. We are living in our grandfather’s house and we are in the list of local poor households.

Family Members:

  • Nguyen Phong (1930) – Grandpa

  • Nguyen Thi Kim Chi (1975) – Mother – sewing worker

  • Nguyen Hoang Minh (1999) – Brother – 11th grader

  • Nguyen Hoang Hieu (2012) – brother – kindergarten

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."

(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."  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.
