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


Official Newsletter of L.O.V.E.

June 2016

Note from Meredith who volunteered with LOVE for 2 weeks in April

(see May’s Newsletter)

I’m so grateful for the time that I got to spend with L.O.V.E during my two weeks in Viet Nam. Between the lovely staff and receiving the opportunity to see all the different parts of their organization, I was very blessed.  Some of the most enjoyable moments were getting to meet many of the sponsored children and families including the university student that my parents began to sponsor, teaching ESL to the children of Family 3 and Family 4, and spending time with the university students.  I met so many wonderful people and was very excited to see all of the good work that L.O.V.E is doing in and around Da Nang. After working or observing in all the different programs, I was able to grasp a variety of ways that other Americans could come help in Viet Nam. My greatest hope is to start creating more partnerships between the U.S.A and Viet Nam so that we can encourage one another in our faith, exchange skills, and build on the programs doing good work in Da Nang and other areas of Viet Nam.  Thanks!  Meredith

Pray as we will collect school reports from the children this month. Once this is finished and tabulated we will determine their grade level for next school year, purchase text books and uniforms for each child and with family sponsorships, their siblings. We will also send sponsors a progress report.

Also pray as I make plans to move my family to Ardmore, Oklahoma in July. I have been praying about this for more than a year and feel this is the time. Many friends have been encouraging me to do this because of health care concerns as I approach 80 years old. I will continue to direct LOVE’s mission in Vietnam. LOVE has great staff in Vietnam. With Ms. My Dong as head of office, and G4Kids, our sister organization in Europe, all will continue as usual.

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 family is in the poor list of the ward. My parents are farmers. In free time, my father works as an unskilled labor when somebody needs. My mother has heart disease which does not allow her to do heavy work. Therefore, she cannot find second job to help my family. My parent’s income is low and it is not enough to cover our four sibling’s school fees. Especially, when I study far away from home, not only that I could not help my parents anything, but they also have to send money for my school fees and daily needs. Our family desperately needs a helping hand so my siblings and I will have a chance to continue our school.  We look forward to receiving your help.

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.
