Love Of Vietnam Expressed

NEWSLETTER

December 2023

ANOTHER WARM CHRISTMAS SEASON IS COMING...

and there are so many poor people, so many hungry people, so many people who are being persecuted, so many people lacking clothes who are in need of good news.

It is also important to show our support to Christian brothers and sisters in Vietnam. Christmas can be lonely for them without knowing that we love them and that we are thinking and praying for them.

 

Can we help bring them the Good News?

We feel challenged by God to reach out to a community of poor in a remote area of Vietnam. Upon contacting one of the leaders there, he writes, “I am deeply concerned for 20 children whose families don’t have enough food and clothes and  9 old people who are living alone. In addition, we have five people who are single mother raising children ,

7 who are handicapped and 2 mentally ill people. There are also a lot of needy and illness families and Agent Orange victims in this poor and remote area of Vietnam.

I am really happy to hear that you are going to do something for the poor areas

in this Christmas and Tet holidays to show God’s love and I am so thankful to God for answering my prayers”.

 

After surveying and discussing the needs we estimate that there are at least 200 food gifts we want to help , L.O.V.E has decided to do the mission for this area in the middle of December

and we need help from supporters so that many more and meaningful things

are added to the gifts on the occasion of Christmas, a time of giving, serving and sharing the joy.

We would like to raise at least $3,000, $15 for each basket, including food and necessary personal items . If you can help, please click here to make a donation to L.O.V.E for any amount, for mission, by PayPal or check as soon as possible.

We realize how these food gifts had touched people's lives, how ready they were for a good news, how much they wanted to feel hopeful again. We have had a worldwide economic downturn, and people are confused, fearful but the poor, they have experienced hunger, persecution, illiteracy, nakedness, and despair and just so ready for a good news.  They want to feel reassured that all the things we value, all our beliefs about a good Shepherd and love still exist.

In the past months, some ethnic students who are eager to learn have received HOPE scholarships to cover school fees, boarding fee and some other children received tuitions, school supplies and extra food.

HOPE Scholarship  (200$/a year) is a scholarship for poor and orphaned children, living in remote mountainous areas in Vietnam, who cannot pay tuition and fees at the beginning of the school year to be able to continue studying.  Most of them are students in remote mountainous areas, do not participate in extra classes, and are at high risk of dropping out of school for many different reasons. One of the main reasons

is the issue of tuition fees.

Besides, there are many poor ethnic children who are facing dropping out of school halfway and an uncertain future. To help children and their families have a warm ray of hope and motivation to rise in life,

a sponsorship is highly recommended.

L.O.V.E calls on the benefactors around the world to join with us in the HOPE fund to provide scholarships to the children.

Besides education, medical care is also a field that L.O.V.E has given support for many years. One of our outstanding short-term projects is the Medicine Cabinets located in churches

in rugged mountainous areas, where mainly poor ethnic minorities live.

Thereby, they can use some basic and essential pharmaceuticals in their daily lives

without paying any fees - something that most people here cannot afford.

We are in need of your contributions so that the Medicine Cabinet project can run continuously, reach further and bring timely relief to ethnic families. The current treatment needs of these people are mainly fever, cough, runny nose, headache and stomachache.

School Level: Grade 5

Favorite Subject: Arts

Favorite activity: Dancing

Father: Bricklayer (epilepsy)

Mother: Housewife

Number of Siblings: 5

Family Income: $152/mo.

MY FAMILY:

My crowded family consists of my grandmother, my parents, 5 siblings and me. We are living in a small rented house. My grandmother is very old and she can just do some light household chores. My mother used to sell food in the morning, but now she just stays at home to take care of my little siblings and me. Therefore, my father is the main earner in the family and he works as a bricklayer. However, my father has epilepsy that requires him to take medicine often and he cannot work regularly, so his income is very precarious. My father alone cannot afford all the living expenses, medical and study costs. My family often does not have enough food. We are facing a lot of difficulties.

 

MY STUDY:

My three brothers and I are of school age. After this summer break, I will move to grade 5. I really love Arts, which helps me a lot to show self-expression and creativity. However, paying for our study costs and nutrition are beyond my parents’ ability. I am very afraid of leaving school early.  My family and I wish to receive a sponsorship that will surely help us a lot. Please help me!
