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.

Official Newsletter of  L.O.V.E.

September 2014

You may never see anything like this again!

The staff insisted that we model the rain coats we will distribute to children next month. A great big “Thank you!” to a wonderful sponsor from England and our other European friends in Germany and surrounding countries who have made this possible, also to our prayer partners all over the world. We will distribute in September and show you pictures next month. October begins the rainy season.

Here my daughters and I show off the rain coats and we also invite you to “Walk In LOVE”


Here is a long time sponsor from The United States who visited their sponsored family for the first time:


    My wife and I had the pleasure of being in Vietnam. It was wonderful to meet the people we had corresponded with and supported for 6 years. For many years now we had considered the family we have been helping as part of our own family so when we met them it was not like they were strangers but part of our own family. When we visited the mother of the children we have grown to know and love she made us a traditional Vietnamese meal (on two different occasions) that would rival anything you would find in a restaurant. She and her children made us feel like we were at home enjoying a meal together and the time we spent with them later made us feel very welcome.


   During our time in Vietnam we traveled around and saw some of the country with the child we have been supporting (she is no longer a child but is now 20 years old and is finishing her schooling) and Phuong, our interpreter who works for L.O.V.E. (who made us feel very welcome indeed). Walks on the beach, many enjoyable conversations, eating a lot of good food, laughing together, listening to each other’s hopes and dreams for the future, were all a part of the wonderful time we had as guests of LOVE and our family so far away from home. Perhaps one day we will do it all again.... we'll just have to wait and see what the future brings our way.

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:  I am the youngest child in a four-daughter family. I’m in 10th grader. My father died years ago, therefore, my mother became the main laborer in the family. My oldest sister got married and lives in a separate house. She cannot help us financially because she has to take care of her own family, especially her epileptic son. The rest of us always try to do something to add more income into our family to release our mother’s burden after our school, but it is never easy.  I desire to receive your help to cover my school fees and to have a better education.

Family members:

* Phan Thi Khanh Linh (1966) - Mother

* Nguyen Dang Anh Thu (1982) (got married & live in a separate house) – Sister

* Nguyen Dang Anh Thi (1994) (2nd  of 3 years student) – Sister

* Nguyen Dang Anh Kieu (1996) (in grade 12th) – Sister

LOVE’s note:  This one parent child is a really good student and there are 3 in school. They have waited a long time for a sponsor. Please help with a family sponsorship.

(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.
