Love Of Vietnam Expressed

by
 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.

BLESSED IN THE FLOODS

Over the last few weeks, Central Vietnam has struggled with storms and floods and landslides which caused serious damage and killed many people. The storm and flood damages are also exacerbating the livelihoods of many Vietnamese people who have been already suffering from the financial effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Despite these harsh conditions, we thank God because the monthly meetings were still going on; the children and their families have been still feeling the warmth of the sponsors’ love and care through letters, sponsorships and extra supports.

We are happy to see our sponsored children and find they are all safe!

I will ride it home now,” Thanh Thao excitedly said to her mother.

 

Thank God and thank you the sponsors from G4kids and LOVE for giving us opportunity to give 13 bicycles to the sponsored children and to see the happy smiles on their faces knowing that the way to school now seems to shorten with these new bikes.

LOVE came in time and gave some food supports to some elders and families isolated in the flood. These are unforgettable experiences for us to see houses surrounded by water, fields of crops now in only one color - the color of flood mixed with tears.

 

The old lady was deeply moved when being visited and received food support.

Just before the typhoon No. 9 Goni was about to sweep the land, Tuy Loan Church building in Da Nang had been borrowed by the government as a residence for the poor in houses at risk of collapse or roof removal.

 

LOVE was happy to help provide food and water for them. The pastor and local people thanked LOVE for this timely help. Thank God for the opportunity to show love to the community.

 

“Make yourself at home, dears”

said the pastor.

All is well prepared

 

This must be a very long night

 

STORMS CAME AND WENT,

WHAT REMAINS??

 

‘Central Vietnam Hit by Typhoon’, ‘Ruined after Storms and Floods’, ‘Buried by the Landslide’... phrases that are all too familiar to Vietnamese people these days. The storms and floods came and went, but the consequences left for the people here were extremely heavy, the pain and loss are still there. How to overcome and stabilize after the floods is a too difficult problem for people in the Central region...

…last month, LOVE visited and surveyed kindergartens in Quang Tri after receiving a call to help from the Church, the area that was hit too hard after consecutive floods, storms and landslides. These kindergartens have total about 600 children and are located deep on the mountain in Quang Tri.

Beside the devastating scenes left by natural disasters, which caught our eyes are skinny bodies, bare feet, and tiny hands that rub together to create a little warmth in cold weather. Our heart was deeply touched when seeing this.

 

We have surveyed and found they need slippers, warm clothes and floor mats for studying time. We wish we can visit there again this December and bring the warmth of the Christmas season’s love to 600 children with a pair of slippers in our yearly Humanitarian mission trip.

With those wishes, we look forward to your partnership with your prayers, financial contributions. “Giving a hand” will truly be very helpful and appreciated in this difficult time!

We Are Looking For A Helping Hand From You

 

We know about the extreme difficulties worldwide in COVID time and we hope and pray, that people are still able and willing to help the people in Vietnam like before. Several of LOVE’s programs need your help:

Our medical missions and humanitarian missions need money donated

Each medical supplies cabinet need $100 per month. Now we are helping 3 cabinets and we need your helping hand

Our Humanitarian mission needs $1500.

Donations of $10, $15 or $50 add up.

 

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.

 

PLEASE HELP!

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 passed away years ago. Since then, my mother has to work hard to pay debt which my father borrowed to buy building materials to serve his work. At the same time, she herself also feeds my brother and me without material help from her relatives. As for me, I always make efforts to study well and get the title of good student. It is the first year that I have been in high school; the curriculum is much more difficult than one in secondary school. So I desire to get a chance to go to extra classes in order to consolidate my knowledge and to keep my study well. My brother is in school too and in grade 2 now. Therefore, my mother has to try to cover both our daily basic needs and school fees. I long for a helping hand so that I will have a brighter future.

  • Nguyen Huynh Dang Khoi (September 8th, 2013) - Brother

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."
