“My Wife Will Love Me Now!”

Note from Tony: My Pepsi Challenge to you: If you watch Huong’s 15 second video and don’t like it, I’ll buy you a Pepsi (or Coke) the next time we’re together!)
Huong fought in the army and was injured in battle years ago. That injury left him unable to walk unassisted. He walks today only with the help of his devoted, 70 year old wife, Dung.
During their lives, Huong worried about the burden that his disability caused Dung. He says: “I always wanted to release the burden off her.”
Huong never owned a wheelchair or walking aid – only Dung’s helping hand.
Hope came to Huong and Dung’s hearts when Orphan Voice delivered a shipment of PET (personal energy transportation) carts to his village. We quickly qualified Huong to receive a PET cart. It was an exciting day! After training, Huong was “off to the races.”
The results? See for yourself by clicking here. Wow! When you watch, you’ll see one happy guy! (Remember Tony’s Pepsi Challenge!)
Huong has gained control over his life and feels more independent. Before receiving his PET cart, he was largely immobile; now, he rides daily to neighbors’ houses to visit. He will even use his newfound mobility to make some extra money!
Dung says: “Thank you, Orphan Voice, for giving my husband the cart. Without your help, he would never have had this precious gift!”
Huong simply says: “I will remember Orphan Voice’s help forever.”
Orphan Voice is heavily invested in caring for the needs of those with special needs: at the Phu NInh Therapy Center; at New Beginnings School for the Deaf; with PET cart distributions; and by cleft lip and palate corrective surgeries. With your help, we will reach even more. Want to be a part?

It Was Me

Recently Orphan Voice partnered with Danang International Fellowship to visit patients at a local cancer hospital. Medical care being less developed in Vietnam than in the United States, many of these patients have little hope. Take a moment to see how reaching out to others brings hope and powerfully affects lives – even with a language barrier! (Click below)
Miracles For Today
Look at the smile of a child who is overcoming cerebral palsy and who now walks! We’ve told you about Trinh, but her story is so amazing that it’s worth a re-tell. A loving Father is behind it all.
Each day at the Phu Ninh Therapy Center, Orphan Voice provides for three therapists, equips the Center with therapy equipment and buys lunches for the children.
We need your help to continue this life-changing ministry. Without it, these children will lack services and some will not live beyond their beds.

Promise House: The Puberty Talk
“I Will Restore To You The Years That The Locust Has Eaten”
Orphan Voice takes its responsibility for the 21 children living at Promise House seriously.
In the last quarter of 2016, our staff along with paid and volunteer teachers, provided 144 tutoring sessions.
More importantly, our staff mentored children in small group settings 24 times. That’s 24 opportunities for the Father to pour out His healing love to damaged lives. He faithfully does that, and as He does so, He restores their lives to what He intended them to be!
The small group mentoring topics are interesting. We recently talked about the difference between “like and love.” Bracing ourselves, we went the full distance and had “the puberty talk.”
Whew! Glad that’s over!
As we provide 166 tutoring and mentoring sessions; as we buy food for the caregivers and children each day; as we take them to the hospital; as we buy their school supplies and clothes; and as we hold their hands and dry their tears, we quickly realize that we can’t do anything without you.
We need you to lend us your faith and support this work. Help us provide for these selected ones of “the least of these” by donating HERE or by mailing your support to Orphan Voice, P.O. Box 910410, Lexington, Kentucky 40591.
Protecting The Innocent
“Lan’s uncle asked her if she wanted to go to China with him on vacation. She quickly said “yes.” Lan’s mom knew what was happening. Once in China, Lan was sold as a bride to a middleman for $500.
“Phuong’s” mother desperately needed money to repay a loan shark. A neighbor came to pretty, 12 year old Phuong and told her how she could get money for her mother: “We will go to Hue where rich Vietnamese men visit from America. Just do what they say. They’re easy to get money from.”
12 year old “Linh” was riding home at night on her bike along a country road from the village school. Suddenly, a man jumped from the shadows and raped her. Little “Linh” never understood what happened and never spoke of it – until her grandmother noticed her growing stomach.
Real girls – who suffered in real ways. We know them personally.
Through Orphan Voice’s Victory House program, vulnerable girls who’ve aged out of orphanages but have no place to live, are given a home, food to eat and job training so that they can provide for themselves. With the job comes safety.
At Orphan Voice’s Hope House, girls who have been raped or trafficked find safety, a loving home and practical help as they recover from their trauma. Through love, brokenness is turned into beauty.
Through Orphan Voice’s More Precious Than Gold anti-trafficking seminars, tens of thousands of children hear about the “ways and wiles” of traffickers. More importantly, they learn how to protect themselves and who to call if they suspect that a trafficker is near.
Through you, Orphan Voice is protecting young girls from sexual abuse. But we need your help to continue. Can you give sacrificially today to protect the innocent? To do so, donate HERE or mail your support to Orphan Voice, P.O. Box 910410, Lexington, Kentucky 40591.
Orphan Voice was conducting a series of anti-trafficking seminars in rural Quang Nam Province when we learned about a group of people in a remote area that were in need of some extra food. We finished the seminar that day and delivered food.
What a cutie! This little fellow is on his way to a healthier and happier life! Because of your generosity, Khang received surgery for his cleft lip in October. His parents are so grateful for the life-changing surgery they could never afford. “You have shared the burden with my family. Our son can have a new life!”
Khang’s mother is overjoyed. It used to take her hours to feed Khang, even with a special bottle. She is hopeful that he will now be able to drink from her breast. “On behalf of my family, I am deeply grateful to Orphan Voice and the sponsors for your love and care for my child.” The family is overwhelmed with YOUR sacrifice. Thank you!
