The Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT) director attended the biannual convention in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada from July 25-29, 2012. During the convention the director set up an information booth, where she was able to meet many LHMT friends and supporters from the United States and Canada.
Since LHMT has received special support from the Indiana District for a number of years, the director had a chance to share an overview with the Indiana representatives about the LHMT ministries during a morning breakfast.
The LHMT director arranged for one of Thailand’s famous pop singers, Rose Sirintip Hanpradit, to travel to the convention and present a mini-concert during a luncheon for more than 400 convention attendees. After the luncheon the director received many very positive comments about Rose’s performance and the wonderful impression that she made on all who heard her.
From the feedback that the director received during and after the convention, everyone was very pleased about the ministries of LHMT and the image of Thailand and the Thai people that they saw through the information booth, Rose’s performance and their personal interactions with convention attendees.
The LHMT director also was able to attend two workshops. She attended “Exciting and Experiencing Outreach Teams” and “Who me?” and will adapt the information to the LHMT ministry in Thailand.
The convention was a good opportunity to inform many people about the culture of Thailand and the work that LHMT is doing here. It was very helpful to be able to personally reconnect with so many friends and supporters from the Indiana District and to know that they will continue to partner with LHMT and pray for our ministry in Thailand.
