Lily of the Valley Community Outreach

Reaching Out to the Global Community

Lily of The Valley Community Outreach (LOTVCO) is a faith based 501C(3) non-profit, non-denominational organization that promotes the message of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and shares our Christian values through entrusted missionary works and community services both locally and globally. Our missionary works include spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world and caring for the spiritual well being of His sheep. Our community services include but not limited to feeding the homeless, employment assistance, and providing transportation to individuals and families in time of need. “With people it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God” ESV 2001 Mark 10:27 …….For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’ NIV Matt 25:31-40

Should Wives Submit To Their Husbands? Expert Panel Discussion

Hi everyone, it's #thejennifersheehanshow again. This time, Dave Lo had an opportunity to share how can the man be the spiritual leader of the family. Check it out.

While the Bible clearly affirms the equality of men and women (see Galatians 3:28), it also tells us plainly that God has assigned the responsibility of spiritual leadership in the home to husbands: “Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them” (Colossians 3:18-19).
Naturally, there is a great deal of controversy in the church today surrounding the precise meaning of these words. Some husbands wonder, “What am I supposed to do – act like a preacher?” Some wives ask, “Why is he supposed to be the only spiritual leader? Why can’t we both do it?” In the end, it all comes down to a very simple and fundamental truth: families need leaders. The buck has to stop somewhere if the household is to function smoothly and efficiently.
It’s important to remember here that a difference in roles doesn’t mean “unequal.” God doesn’t consider wives inferior, inadequate, less important, or less responsible than husbands. Besides, only an unwise man would reject his wife’s opinions and assistance. After all, the Lord has created her to be his best earthly resource.

Dave Lo and Sissi Xī-Huáng are working at OCI’s office today, helping them to pick up some phone calls. Welcome to bug us, so we can tell you more about this ministry. #operationcareinternational #oci #homelessministry #oneday2020

Expert Panel Discuss Biblical Strategies for Success

Dave Lo had an opportunity to share "Biblical Strategies for Success" on The Jennifer Sheehan Show. Check it out!!!
Many people do not realize what the Bible says about success until it is too late. While there is nothing wrong with working hard and enjoying the fruits of our labor, sometimes we forget that each of us as believers are called to a holy vocation.
Many people put a lot of time into being successful. For many people, success is the attainment of prosperity or popularity. In the end, they realize that success is not the things the world says it should be. Success, is having life itself and having it abundantly for an eternity. We have but a finite time upon this earth so we must be very careful in how we use our time. It is with an eternal mindset that we must always be about the work of the Lord until such time as he calls us home. For it is by our faith in Christ by which He grants us our rewards and success. This success and inheritance is kept by God until such time as He calls us home – a time that is so precious in His sight. Until then, our work is but that of a servant.
For we have but a finite time upon this earth so we must be very careful in how we use our time (Ephesians 5:14-16).

Sadly, many people do not realize what the Bible says about success until it is too late. While there is nothing wrong with working hard and enjoying the fru...

Dessert by Andrew Chu's daughter Abby, with training from Sherry Lynn at one of our Hot Pot fellowships in Andrew's lake house.

A second car from LOTV car program was given to Colleen Manny. It was garaged kept car with 38,000 miles in pristine condition and driven by an old lady till the Lord called her home recently. The ladies daughter offered it for sale and heard about our LOTV through Sherry Lynn, and sold it to us at a discount to meet our budget of $3000 USD per car. And yes, Colleen is more than happy because this car came to her, just when her old one broke down and can't be safely driven any further without huge repair bills. Praise God indeed.

My 2014 YTD Reflection | Lily of the Valley

Hello everyone! Thank you for taking the time to read our updates. 2014 has been a landmark year for the directors of LOTV. It was great to see the work of the Holy Spirit guiding us along the way. From Psalms 136, I’m reminded that whatever happens to us, “His mercy endures forever”, Amen. We strive hard to stick to our goal, which is to bring more sheep to His fold, through works requiring love and faith, which the Lord has supplied to us in measure.

It does take a lot of love through Jesus Christ to help those who are struggling in their lives. The basic human nature of being uncomfortable around strangers, thinking our way is the best, and the challenges in life are met head-on every time we try to help someone. The old saying that “it’s their problem, not mine”, is often the norm when we look around us; however, we can find our own self-centeredness when we recall those teenagers aboard the Korean ferry that killed hundreds. Many heard the call from elders and authority figures to go back to their cabins and wait for help. There were too many obedient Korean teenagers on that boat, unfortunately. Because all the crew members saved their own skin left the children behind.

I recently started on reading Susie Jennings autobiography, 31 Days of Mountaintop Miracles. After the death of her husband, she mentioned that when she started to practice obedience, she asked, “what can I do for you Lord and the community?” The Holy Spirit spoke to her heart, to help the homeless, and that’s when the blessing of the Lord begin. And the rest as they say is history. Obeying the voice in our hearts from the Lord is something I have learned over the years, and it is not an easy thing to follow, but with the help from the Holy Spirit, it can become incredibly easy and wonderful to experience.

Society’s ethnocentricity and our culture/race often become norms, and “rules” we think are acceptable, as was in Jesus’ time. So that’s why many Jews still did not believe the Messiah when He was right before their eyes, because they lost their true focus. That is what I pondered for the past 2 years. Why does God not open the eyes of more Christians to see that our real enemy is Satan, and he’s using our pride, religion, and culture to divide us and make us draw further from God? We believe in men more often than in God, and for that, we will all be in danger of the spiritual death as well, if we don’t wake up someday. The notion I hear from other Christians, is “that’s not what I was taught”, which makes me think back of how I had that same attitude in the past. But thank God, I came a long way since, and hope to encourage you that in your prayers, ask for God’s “will”, if you dare, because it will open your hearts and mind, and you may like what you see and understand.

But the more I look, and search out His will, the more I realize how important it is for me to help bring back His lost sheep. And the more I work in His name, the more I’m finding out my own understanding is lacking. His sheep are out there; who’s going to lend a helping hand? So yes, I’m grateful God brought Andrew, our Executive Director, as my spiritual big brother. I pray that more of His workers will join our efforts: In the name of Jesus Christ, not in the name of any denomination or church organization. As is when God called out, “whom shall I send, and who will go before us?” Hope we all reply, “Here am I, send me.”

BURNED BISCUITS | Lily of the Valley

When I was a kid, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then. And I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long ago, my mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage and extremely burned biscuits in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed!

Yet all my dad did was reach for his biscuit, smile at my mom and ask me how my day was at school. I don’t remember what I told him that night, but I do remember watching him smear butter and jelly on that ugly burned biscuit. He ate every bite of that thing… never made a face nor uttered a word about it!

When I got up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom apologize to my dad for burning the biscuits. And I’ll never forget what he said: “Honey, I love burned biscuits every now and then.”

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if he really liked his biscuits burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, “Your Momma put in a hard day at work today and she’s real tired. And besides – a little burned biscuit never hurt anyone!”

As I’ve grown older, I’ve thought about that many times. Life is full of imperfect things and imperfect people. I’m not the best at anything, and I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like everyone else. But what I’ve learned over the years is that learning to accept each others faults, and choosing to celebrate each others differences, is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.

And that’s my prayer for you today…

that you will learn to take the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of your life and lay them at the feet of God. Because in the end, He’s the only One who will be able to give you a relationship where a burnt biscuit isn’t a deal-breaker!

We could extend this to any relationship. In fact, understanding is the base of any relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-child or friendship!

So, please pass me a biscuit, and yes, the burned one will do just fine.

Operation Care International

Summary Update on LOTV in the USA

Hallelujah! Praise and thanks to God our Father in heaven, for He has blessed us through the works of our hands. The following are mostly highlights of the Lord’s work year to date, because He has blessed us and made us whole.

1) We have continued to support Sister Susie Jennings with Operation Care, (http://operationcareinternational.org), whose primary function is serving the needs of the homeless in Dallas. We helped feed and minister the homeless at the Union Gospel Mission (on occasions when they request assistance), and participated in the well-publicized annual Christmas giveaway at the convention center (primarily praying and encouraging those needing a helping hand). LOTV donated over 68 coats through a coat drive, and additionally we’re one of the sponsors for Operation Care’s planned trip to Israel this July 2014. We helped buy Bibles and other needed school items as they prepare to open a 300-student Christian school that will enroll Jewish children, allowing us to share the gospel of Christ.

2) We also partnered up and took time to volunteer on Sunday mornings with a coalition of Christians who have their own 501(c)3 faith based non-profit in McKinney, called City Church (https://www.facebook.com/citychurchmckinney). Carol and her husband Kelly Wood, the founders and leaders, along with their 3 grown children, have tirelessly taken their own family deep into the disadvantaged neighborhoods by knocking door to door and building that trust with the neighborhood for the past 12 years. There are kids from these neighborhoods who’ve never attended a children’s Bible class before. City Church buses these kids 3 times a month on Sunday mornings to a warehouse/office building (Kelly Woods Construction Co.) where they do praise and worship and eat breakfast. There are children as young as 2 to 16, with attendance ranging from 10-30 kids in any given Sunday. City Church also has a month long summer program called “Popsicles in the Park”, (LOTV is one of the financial sponsors of this year’s summer program) which is a day camp for the kids to come hang out. Kids are led with praise worship, lunch, and all sorts of volunteer led activities, all in the name of Jesus. Many kids over the years have told the founders of City Church that because of City Church, they had a place to go that kept them out of trouble, and they were able to feel that someone cared for them. God is praised indeed.

3) A new partner in Christ with LOTV this year is Refuge City (http://refuge-city.org/).
Barbara Rodriquez was introduced to us at one of our monthly meetings, and we learned that Dallas had the second highest sex trafficking rate in the country. To help her agency with this important task of saving and helping children who are victims of sex trafficking, it has become one of our priorities this year. Because we believe in being Spirit led, I can confirm that the Lord is opening doors for Refuge City already. I see a small line of donors and volunteers willing to cook, provide transportation, and donate supplies to this endeavor. Praise God indeed. LOTV first solicited clothing, sundries, hygiene, and toiletry items and we received boxes of donations within a couple weeks. Refuge City is currently seeking to raise $500,000 to find housing/permanent shelter needed (also required per Texas Dept. of Health and Human Services) to house these kids with special service needs, as they cannot be placed in regular emergency shelters. They are currently looking at Lucas, east of Allen. Requirement is that it has to be at least 6 bedrooms and a large lot (so they can do outdoor programs safely and be monitored). We are on standby to making a contribution if and when they find a suitable property to make it happen. They currently need more drivers to take the food to the children in safe houses, and to take these children in the daytime to doctor and social service appointments.

4) Our continual efforts on a weekly basis in helping fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, strangers on the streets, and those who walk through our church doors seeking various assistance is a testament that God has a lot of love for His sheep, especially the lost, hoping to be found. We have so far in the last 12 years not had to turn anyone away, praise our Father in heaven. The Lord has brought them, whether its needing a few dollars for food, or gas, or some sort of help (such as fixing their car and providing bus passes to help them keep moving), and we have been able, through God’s grace, to steer them in the right direction. We cannot stop giving our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ enough “thank you’s”, because He has given us wisdom to discern between the spirits; He has given us the right thing to say at the right time, to boldly speak the truth, sometimes gently, sometimes with the tone of rebuke, but all done through the love of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

Servant in Christ,

Dave Lo
Director of Community Outreach

P.S. Please keep us in your prayers. Without God’s blessing and guidance, our efforts are in vain.

A letter of thanks from your servant-in-Christ

On behalf of the board of the Lily of the Valley Community Outreach (LOTV), I want to thank you, brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ. Much work was accomplished in 2013 despite personal trials and challenges we faced and endured.

Over the years, very little to no photos were taken to document the Lord’s work that we do here in Dallas and wherever help is needed, but I was able to find some photos taken by others for you to view. Those we helped thus far were able to experience God’s grace in their lives.

From Tony Efe Odion, helping him to find housing, to Rhonda Hawkins, whose need to obtain treatment to fight cancer, LOTV provided assistance with transportation and lodging for 5 days while a member in Christ sponsored her treatment so she can get better. Your act of love and generosity so touched her that she is now a baptized member, and attends Sabbath services faithfully. And thanks to God’s grace, she’s doing much better, and is now even looking for a full time work. Tony now works full time and recently bought himself a car, and comes to worship and fellowship whenever he finds time.

Your contribution also sponsored bilingual speaker Linda, so she can fill in as a house manager at River of Life Homes (www.riveroflifehomes.org), a battered women and children’s shelter here in Dallas for over 6 months. Many residents have moved on to better jobs, gotten themselves apartments, re-build their lives and gained confidence in themselves and Jesus Christ, because there was someone there with that very role to help them move ahead. You also helped a couple ladies repair their cars so they were able to get to work with minimal impact, thereby, preserving their jobs and housing.

LOTV received agency spotlight at the Metro Dallas Homeless Alliance. They now all know about our give-away a car a year program. Yes, once a year, we have in our budget to give away one used car (value at $5000) to a needy family without a car, but so far, no one has met our criteria’s, including being on a job, at least 9 months with above average performance evaluation. Ongoing program that we implemented with good results is monthly bus pass program. Qualified individuals and families receive them to interviews, work, school, day care, and running errands. So far, everyone to date, has found work to support themselves, because of bus passes they received with help from you, praise the Lord indeed!

Looking forward in 2014, we’re planning our first LOTV retreat in middle of August, here in Dallas. You are invited of course, stay tuned for more information. We will continue to support our efforts with ROLH as well as OCI (OperationCareInternational.org). Get involved in your community and let us know how we can help.

Thank you again for your kindness and consideration in supporting our endeavors. And I share this with you for the year ending in 2013, in memory of Agnes.
