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.

Breaking the Circle of Poverty

Article by: Nguyen Nam Phuong, LOVE staff


In September, I got a chance to revisit Vu Thi Tran Van, one of the children in our program that we are trying to help escape out of the difficult situations caused by poverty. She and most of the poor and needy children have similar family situations. What makes her one of the most special cases in our program is that she has two disabled brothers because of Agent Orange (AO). It really hurts me to know that Van’s older brother, Hai, a 20-year-old boy who just graduated from IT College in Da Nang was released after several days of working, only because of his disabled physical body. One employee in the company said Hai would be a burden for them; his health is not good (they seemed afraid because of sick leave and health insurance issues).

Hearing the story from his father, I thought he already has a good education now, but still cannot find a job to earn the money and it is so miserable for him. Surely, it would be very hard for him to find another job unless he is lucky and if there is someone or a company who would really have compassion for him.
Hai and his brother His family

To me, life is not fair to Van, her brother, her family and even to other poor people. The only thing that he, his family and other needy families are striving to do is to improve their life, oreven a chance to change their life. But maybe life does not meet their very simple wish. I keep asking myself how this family (and others) can escape the circle of poverty. I pray that it will happen one day soon. How can it happen?

………………………….. It can only happen when people like Tran Van’s sponsor and people like you are willing to pray for and help them.

Some “birthday”, “back to school” and “just because I care” gifts

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.

(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.

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