Listener Gathering in Nakorn Nayok

On February 14, 2010 our LHM Thailand staff traveled to Nakorn Nayok Province to conduct a Listener Gathering with the members of Maitreejit worship group.  The purpose of the gathering was to promote the LHM radio program “Because You Are Loved” and to build relationships between the LHM radio speakers with the listeners in the community and members of this new local worship group.  Because there was the first time to conduct the gathering, the members of Maitrijit worship group are eager for ways to learn more about our ministry.  They were very happy to hear about the Bible Correspondence Courses, encouraging text messages and other media available through LHM Thailand. 

After worshiping with the worship group members in the morning, the LHM Thailand team conducted a special program from 1:00-3:00pm.  They led songs, games, and did a skit called “Gift with Love.”  The skit is a story about two people who received God’s love.  One person keeps God’s love and doesn’t share it with anyone else.  As time passes the love that this person received from God begins to get smaller and smaller.  However, the second person shares God’s love with many other people.  Each time he shares God’s love, it grows bigger and stronger.

One highlight of the day was when many of the worship group members shared their testimonies.  Through their stories they encouraged each other and also encouraged the LHM staff.  When planning this program the LHM Thailand staff thought that many people would attend.  At first they were disappointed when only 13 people came, because that day was also Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day.  But their disappointment quickly disappeared, because God blessed them with a fun time together and an opportunity to build very strong relationships with the worship group members.  We are already considering other ways in which we can support and assist the worship group members in the future.
