Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
We love helping the poor in whatever way we can – it always brings us great joy. We believe God is calling us to serve His people – especially the poor and needy. During the summer of 2019 our founder, Mr. Paul Khiet Tran, spent an unforgettable month visiting Vietnam’s Hmong people at Yen Bai and My Hung provinces. It was a great privilege for him to live with them and experience how they live. He learned that they need a lot of help from us.
More than five years ago, Paul had a dream to form a nonprofit organization so that he could work with others, to build a better future for unfortunate people. He believes that all of us deserve a better future. Now, that dream has become a reality! God has helped Paul in so many ways to fulfill this dream. He was able to raise significant funds to help the flood victims in Vietnam last September through November (2020). Most importantly, he met many great people who have open hearts.
All praise to God, in January 13, 2021, One Hope One Future was found! On May 22, 2021 One Hope One Future was granted a Tax-Exempt status. Only God can make things happen! Let us now doing His will!
One Hope One Future’s mission statement:
Together we strive to bring hope for a better and more sustainable future for the needy, whether it’s food, shelter, clothing, medical care, or education. As the Bible reminds us as Christ’s disciples, “If one of you says to them – go in peace; keep warm and well fed – but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?” James 2:16.
One Hope One Future’s goal
Together, as instruments of love, we strive to build a better future for God’s people, especially the most unfortunate in developing countries – like Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Africa and elsewhere. Our hope, as much as we are able with your support, is to connect with people in need.
We intend to send our funding, as far as possible, to trusted contacts – like local priests, nuns, or Buddhist monks. These are the people that we can trust to work with and send our funds to.
Our main purposes as a charitable organization
As a tax-exempt organization, One Hope One Future is organized and at all times operates exclusively for charitable purposes as a 501(c)(3). As such it has the following purposes:
to extend the reign of God on earth
to witness to and promote the gospel of Jesus Christ through service to the poor and needy
to assist the needs of the poor and needy, whether individuals or organizations, with food, shelter, clothing, medical care, and education
to support the poor and needy with the means to sustain their own livelihood
to engage others in charitable outreach, in particular young people, as a means of deepening their faith
Together let us build God’s kingdom on earth. Let us be instruments of love, serving God’s people with one hope, one faith, and one love!
