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.

From the Director

Now summer is past and the 37-40 C temperatures are gone (I hope) and the 33 to 37 temperatures are here. Cooler weather is such a relief as the night time dips to mid-twenties. Hopefully, October to March will see temperatures below 30 and even a few days under 20. October and November usually bring the rainy season that is when things begin to cool off. Now we have a few months to catch our breath before gifts and money for Christmas and Tet (Chinese New Year) begin to come in. This year, Tet is on February 18, so we will not be so rushed between Christmas and Tet.

December is the one time a year when our thoughts are not only on the children, but also for the elderly. Here we try to provide blankets, scarves, and food to a needy area. This humanitarian mission usually cost from $1500 to $2,000. We need many of you out there to send an extra $10, $20, $50 or $100 to our general fund to help us bless 100 or more poor and often alone elderly men and women. At 77 last year, I was the youngest one there.

Visits to student houses

LOVE visited student houses to pray, encourage and motivate them in their studies at the beginning of the new school year. Below, Linh and 2 leaders of the student groups visited the student houses. Many of the students were in classes. All the students were really happy to welcome Linh and the leaders of Christian students group.

All the boys of Daniel House were home.

Here are the pictures of Manh Linh’s repaired roof before the rainy season. From this help, Linh’s house will not have a leak in the wet rainy season again. The repairs were done in about 1 week, and LOVE is happy to share the joy with Linh’s family.

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:   Family members My name is Vo Thai Ngoc Quoc. I am 14 years old. My dad died and now I am living with my grandmother, mother and brother. My grandmother has cancer and she’s bearing a lot of pain. We alternatively take care of her. My brother is a 12- grader. My mother is the main labor in our family. My mom is a house cleaner but her job is not stable. Our family has 4 members but just only mother can work and earn a very small wage, she has a huge burden. I do need a help to keep our study going because both my brother and I do want to keep going to school. Thank you.

Family members:

  • Phan Thi Chi (1939) – Grandmother

  • Thai Thi Lien (1967) – Mother

  • Vo Thai Ngoc Gia (1999) - Brother

LOVE’s note:  We recommend a family sponsorship, but any help is highly appreciated.














(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.

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!
