Orphan Voice Disaster Relief

Outreach To The Hurting

Presidents Donald Trump, Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin arrive in Danang tomorrow. Typhoon Damrey arrived last week.

Damrey struck families living in Nông Sơn District, near Danang, hard. Heavy rains, causing Highland dams to be opened, sent rushing water into rivers and valleys. When the dams opened, Nông Sơn families were caught unaware. For most, their rice, other food, and chickens were washed away. Homes also.

Orphan Voice didn’t take the child’s picture above. We got it from a friend. Thankfully, she lived, but landslides have taken 8 lives. In all, 69 people died from the flooding, landslides and capsized boats at sea.

Orphan Voice is responding to these several thousand suffering families in the Love of Christ. We will deliver our first load of emergency food to Nông Sơn District Saturday. We will likely take more next week.

Every box of noodles, every pound of rice, every blanket lifts the suffering into the Love of Christ.

Will you help? $20 will provide 50 meals; $50 will provide 125 meals.
$100 will provide 250 meals. $250 will provide 625 meals.

To bring the love of Christ to suffering Nong Son District families, Donate Here . Or, mail your support to Orphan Voice, P.O. Box 910410, Lexington, Kentucky 40591.

Thank you and may God bless you as you remember and protect “the least of these.”

Changing Lives in Vietnam!

Lives Protected, Lives Changed!

I needed a phone charger, so I rode my bike to a the electronics store to buy one. The sales girl greeted me with a dazzling smile. There was something about that smile….

Astonished, I remembered! I first met “Alice” when she was 12. She had come to my office with her heavily-indebted mother. When I saw her at the store, she must have been 16.

Alice’s story as a 12 year old was tragic. She understood her mom’s debt burden and wanted to help her badly. Indeed, her love for her mom caused her to fall prey to sexual abuse.

A so-called family friend said to Alice:

“I know how we can help your mom. I’ll take you to Hue where Vietnamese men who live in American come to tour the old Imperial City. They’re rich and they’re easy to get money from. Just do what they want.” She then took Alice to Hue and set up evening meetings with men.

As bad as it was, the abuse was only for a night and for that we are thankful. One business man cancelled because a meeting ran late. However, at least one man kept his appointment.

Alice’s mom quickly found out about the abuse and reported it. Social Services asked Orphan Voice to help just days afterwards. We did all we could. While we weren’t able to carry out our complete plan to help her, enough was implemented to see that she wasn’t trafficked or abused again. The abuse was a one time event.

That vaguely familiar smile triggered that flood of memories for me that day. Lots of emotion there.

Alice was gainfully employed and on her own. Her smile that day also told me that all was well.

Orphan Voice staff, through your generosity, is enabled to touch hundreds of children, youth, and government officials each month. We need your support, both in prayer and in finances, to reach out to other “Alices,” to provide for the orphan, and to touch with Everlasting love the lowly and hurting. Will you help us today?
