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.

LOVE gives thanks to the Lord and our sponsors for helping us give out over 250 textbooks and uniforms to scholarship and sponsored children this year. Textbooks and uniforms are two essential and vital items for a student to enter a new school-year. All children are happy to get them and grateful to the great help from their sponsors.

Two of the German G4Kids sponsors spent their holidays in Southeast Asia and visited their children.

Meetings between a child and a sponsor are always an unforgettable experience for both sides:

From June 21 – July 5, we visited the beautiful country of Vietnam. In the beginning, we spent 3 days in Hoi An. We met with the first of our sponsored children. LOVE’s staff organized a sightseeing tour together by walking and boating around the beautiful Hoi An ancient city. In the evening we experienced the special atmosphere of beautiful colored lanterns in the enchanting little streets and we were happy to discover the absolutely delicious Vietnamese food. It was a fantastic day!

In Da Nang, we had the chance to watch the International fireworks competition, but what was even more important to us was the time we could spend with our sponsored children.

We spent one afternoon and one day with our sponsored children. On the first day we met the younger ones in the afternoon and spent a short time talking together at LOVE’s office. Then, we all had a joyful time together at Asia Park and took part of many games there; a ride on the Sun Wheel also. The end of the wonderful time was a dinner where we could impress the last feelings and say goodbye to each other.

Ba Na Hills was the destination of our second meeting. Here, all the older sponsored children joined and we had a lot of fun together while participating in many exciting and thrilling games.

The ride up in the cable car was picturesque, giving beautiful views of the hillside and variety of central Vietnam. Taking this cable car let us see greenery all around, the richness of the geography around Da Nang, trickling waterfalls and streams, and the ocean shimmering in the distance. It was a fantastic experience for our students, too.

The French Village on top of Ba Na Hills is a replicated architectural work of ancient European villages. With its cooler temperatures and plantings it gave the kids a little glimpse of our home.

The day ended with a nice dinner at White-Boat restaurant on Han River where we enjoyed a great view of Danang along the river & dragon bridge and of course with delicious dishes.

All the children and we sponsors felt perfectly happy with each other and we thank LOVE's staff so much for giving us a wonderful time!

It is such a wonderful thing to sponsor a child, it is even more wonderful to meet each other personally. We'll never forget and we'll keep all these fantastic memories in our mind. The people of Vietnam are very warm and friendly and we hope to come back to this beautiful place once again.

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.

 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 father is the main labor in my family. He is a painter but his job is unstable because of his sciatica and spondylitis. My mother just has a job when somebody needs and she does things like cleaning their houses or washing dishes at food stores. My older brother gave up his study because my family couldn’t afford to pay his school fee. Now, he wants to be an apprentice at vocational school but it’s impossible in this situation. My younger sister is at the age of kindergarten but there isn’t enough money to send her. I look forward to your support so that I can continue to go to school, my brother can learn a trade at a vocational school and my sister will be sent to kindergarten next year.

(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.
