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 gladly enabled to do 2 mission trips before Tet festival thanks to the donation of two generous sponsors/donors. Like our previous missions, we could only give them some basic household items such as blanket, instant noodles, rice, cookies … but for the recipients, it meant more than that. It helped to bring them a happy cozy Tet with families. The first mission was carried out on February 2 in Hoa Hiep Nam ward, Lien Chieu district, Danang city. We distributed 100 Tet gifts to the poorest families here.

Tet is the biggest annual traditional festival in Vietnam and the sponsors really want to give their sponsored children/families a nice cozy Tet by sending them some extra cash gifts. Some children spent them on new clothes while others buy household stuffs for families. Below are some of many photos of children with big grateful smiles.

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.

Please Sponsor me!

About me:  My father got a work accident about 5 years ago, he then lost his left foot. Unluckily, at that time he just received a little amount of money to pay for hospital fees and the artificial leg from his company because he just started working for the company in a few days. He now mostly stays around the house to do the chores and to take care 3 of us after classes, I find it hard for him to spend most of the time to stay inside the house. He wishes to have some money to buy and raise some chicken and pigs again in order to earn some more income for the family and to reduce the heavy burden on my mother’s shoulder in term of finance. My mother is an electronic worker in an industrial zone, her monthly income and also the only one of our family hardly meets our basic needs and our school fees even she willingly work many extra hours. I got an operation of cleft palate a few years ago. I am doing a great job at school, I love learning English and I wish to do it better in order to seek a better life for my own future. My family and I do wish to get some help to overcome the current difficulties and 3 of us are secured to have a seat at school.

LOVE’s note: 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.
