Letter from L.O.V.E.'s President

“With the passing of our founder and first president, Reggie Coward, I have become the President of LOVE. Many of you were very close to Reggie and understand his love and devotion to Jesus, his Church, and the people of Vietnam. We will miss him very much, but God's work in Vietnam goes on and the LOVE staff and I are committed to the health and growth of God's mission in Vietnam through LOVE. I have been treasurer of LOVE for 12 years and vice-president for a few years, yet until becoming President I never realized the full outreach of this great organization and the devotion of our wonderful staff. Such beauty in Vietnam and in the faces of its children, but such need. LOVE is a testament to what God can do with one servant like Reggie and all of the LOVE staff and donors who have joined in God's work these 20 years.

My wife Sally and I have two adopted Vietnamese daughters and live in Virginia where I am a university professor. I am also a retired US Navy Captain. We first visited Da Nang 14 years ago when we adopted the girls. Sally has been back once. We have a heart for these children and for Jesus. It is critical that we love these children because Christ first loved us. Simply giving goods and services is not our primary mission, although a great one. Our primary mission is sharing the gospel and the love of Jesus Christ. This may sometimes look the same, but it is very different, and very special. LOVE will stand on God's Word, “Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.” Col 3:17

May God Bless You and Keep You and Your Families, in Jesus' name, and thank you for visiting our website.”
