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.

THE STAFF AND SMALL STONES

“Then he took his staff in his hand, chose five smooth stones from the stream, put them in the pouch of his shepherd’s bag and, with his sling in his hand, approached the Philistine.” – I Samuel 17:40

        David was facing the giant Goliath, a mighty warrior. Meanwhile, he was just a shepherd with a staff and stones in his hand. It was an unequal battle. David could have found himself a safe place to watch the battle. But he did not do so. He had moved forward with his staff and stones. The miracle was that the giant had fallen. That day, victory belonged to the people of God.

        Today, Goliath before us is a world full of upheavals: plagues, wars, moral decay, habitat destruction... It aggressively threatens human life, causing us to fear, falter and withdraw. Looking back, we see that what we have in our hands – a little energy, a little money, a little effort - like that dry staff, little stones, which are insignificant.

       And just like the way God used the dry staff, small stones in David's hand to bring great deliverance to an entire nation that was in danger of being oppressed and enslaved by the enemy. Somehow your sharing can also bring relief to the lives that are threatened by poverty, disease and ignorance out there; to share and to give them hope in this life time and for enternity.

The dry staff and those little stones can be found everywhere, but where to find people like the shepherd David. This world doesn’t lack such little things to share, the world just needs more David.

The sponsor supported Viet Nghia's house with 2 piglets to increase the family's income by raising and selling them

In June we are happy to have 2 new sponsored children. The college student girl Hmal Nie and the high school boy Ngo Van Duc with their first sponsorships

*** In the pictures above and below, you will see some children wearing masks, others not wearing, and some group photos. Please understand that it depends on when or where we meet the children. In last June, there were 2 times the lockdown took place because of Covid and was lifted. Now, the city is in lockdown again.

 

“Say goodbye” meeting

For students who have completed the education way

and started a new journey

These just graduated students, over the many years of sponsorship, had been receiving the seeds from L.O.V.E which were the monthly stipend, the monthly caring, the monthly guidance, the monthly letters and above all the truly love from their sponsors and staffs

On 16th June,  L.O.V.E  happily celebrated the Fly with LOVE to remind them how blessed they are, to say goodbye to them, to wish them the best for their future life. Seven of the 15 invited students, including those who graduated 2 months ago, will graduate this month or in the coming months, were able to attend their last meeting. Others were unable to come because they had been in their hometown and could not return to Da Nang due to the epidemic situation.

Everything was ready for the meeting

The students watched a video with pictures of them from the very first days of receiving the sponsorship until now

Watching the video, we and students can't help but be excited because there have been so many changes. There must be changes because these children have received help from a few years to even 10 years.

We had some games, little talking, sharing  and advices for the student. After that, they received their last sponsorship.

In the first days of receiving help, they were still small, thin  and shy. But now, look how mature and confident they are!

They were children who faced many difficulties in life. Each child's situation was different and needed help. But those difficulties could not stop them from moving forward.  Let's see them as challenges that make us strong!

Thank you to the sponsors who have been with them over the years. You are like the second fathers and mothers of them, experiencing the joys and sorrows with them, witnessing their growth. What you have done for them is immeasurable.

After all, life is a long journey consisting of days of meeting and parting. Although we know that there are still many difficulties ahead of them, we hope that they can face them strongly!

 And we do hope those love seeds will grow and multiply in good soil.  Goodbye! Wish you all come out with smiling faces, be more confident and fly with love!

  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.

About Me:  I was born in the absent of my father and am raised by my single mom only in Quang Nam province. My mother’s job is farming and her income is just enough for our food and basic daily costs. She cannot afford to send me to university, but I had tried my best and struggled a lot to be a second-year student of Duy Tan University like today. My major is Chinese and I desire to be a Chinese lecturer after graduation. Before the pandemic, I found a part-time job as a receptionist at a motel to myself cover my accommodation here in Danang. Regarding to my tuition, my mother takes out loans from bank and I also save a bit from my part-time job income. But now I lost it because most of accommodation services are currently stopped due to the pandemic. I really want to complete my study at university. I hope to receive your helping hand so that I can reach my goal.

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."
