Dear Friends in Christ,

May the peace of Christ be with you and your family!  Thank you again to our friends and benefactors who have been supporting VDS’s efforts in Vietnam for the past eleven years.  We are speechless when it comes to saying "THANK YOU" to each and everyone of you. 



I am writing this letter to once again THANK you for your prayers and financial support of our humanitarian projects that provide a better quality of life for the poor in Vietnam through the means of education.   I am happy to share with you the good works God is performing in our ministry through your prayers and generosity.  More than 100 students have graduated from our program with degrees in Biology, Nursing, Pharmacy, Pharmacy Technician, Oriental Medicine, Arts and Designs, English, Construction Engineering, Accounting, Environmental Science, Business Administration, Automotive Technology, and Social Services.  That is indeed very good news given the fact that VDS was established only in 2007!


We are grateful for their leadership and cooperation with VDS’ efforts.



Once again I am writing to appeal for your prayers and financial assistance to help us continue the wonderful works God is working through all of us to help provide a better quality of life for our poor students and their families in Vietnam.  This is our ONLY ONLINE APPEAL for assistance for the year of 2017.  Any gift you offer will be deeply appreciated.  We rely on God’s providence through your continued support and generosity. As always, we remain deeply grateful to you for enabling our students to accomplish their “dream for success” in hope of a brighter future!
