Love Of Vietnam Expressed

 Helping the Poor & 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.

Short Note: Summer is over and students have already gone back to school for a new school year. LOVE has already successfully given almost 270 books, uniform materials and tailor fees to all sponsored children and siblings, 10th graders in August and the others in July. We were happy to see their happy smiles. Many big thanks to YOU, all the sponsors and donors, for your support to help transform many Vietnamese children’s lives.

Many 10th-graders received books and uniforms in August

Extra Gifts - Extra Joy

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 Mr. Reggie, LOVE's President.

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.

The Blessing Of Giving

“It is more blessed to give than to receive.”Acts 20:35

It made no sense for a widow to donate her last few coins to a corrupt institution in Jerusalem, where scribes who were dependent on those gifts “devour[ed] widows’ houses” (Mark 12:40). But in that woman’s act, Jesus saw a moving display of the proper attitude toward money (vv.41-44).

Gordon Cosby, while serving as pastor of the Church of the Saviour in Washington, DC, tells of a widow whose income was barely adequate to feed and clothe her six children. Yet every week she faithfully placed $4 in the offering plate. A deacon suggested that Cosby go to her and assure her that she could use the money instead for her family’s benefit.

Cosby followed the deacon’s advice—to his regret. “You are trying to take away the last thing that gives me dignity and meaning,” she said. She had learned a key to giving: It can benefit the giver more than the receiver. Yes, those in poverty need financial help. But the need to give may be as important as the need to receive.

The act of giving reminds us that we live by the grace of God—like the birds and the flowers. Those creations don’t worry about their future; neither should we. Giving offers us a way to express our confidence that God will care for us just as He cares for the sparrow and lily (Matt. 6:25-34).

Whatever, Lord, we lend to Thee,
Repaid a thousand-fold will be;
Then gladly will we give to Thee,
Who givest all—who givest all. —Wordsworth

We disarm the power of money by giving it away.

(By Philip Yancey Our Daily Bread, 2013)

About me: My family is in difficulties with 5 people, including 3 children in school. My father is the only labor in my family because my mother is always sick and she just stays at home and does housework. Therefore, my father has to work harder to feed us and send us to school. My father is working as a mason and he only can do in the sunny season. His low income is not enough for the basic needs of my family and our school fees. Our family looks for a helping hand.

Family members:

  • To Minh Minh (1969) – Father

  • Truong Thi Thu Phuong (1970) – Mother

  • To Minh Hieu (1999) – Brother – grade 12

  • To Minh Nghia (2008) – Brother – grade 3

LOVE’s note: Actually, the mother is weak and she also gets light mental illness so she cannot find a job. 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."

(Prov 31:8-9 NIV)  "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy."

(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.
