Making Connections

Over 200 EFT members joined the meeting at Rayong

“Proclaim Christ throughout Thailand” was the theme of the 2010 Evangelical Fellowship of Thailand (EFT) meeting, which was held in Rayong, Thailand from March 23-26 this year.  Every four years all EFT members meet together to hear the report from the EFT Board of Directors about what they have done the past four years and the vision to continue to proclaim Christ throughout Thailand in the future, learn about their budget plan for the next four years, to elect new members to the EFT Board of Directors, and for the members to encourage each other.

The LHM Thailand director and two of her staff joined more than 200 other EFT members at this year’s meeting.  It was a good opportunity for the director to learn more about what is happening with other Christian organizations and to exchange ideas about how we might be able to cooperate together in ministry in the coming years.

During the time in Rayong the director and staff were able to make many good connections with other EFT members and leaders.  The leaders of several Christian organizations showed interest in the LHM Children’s Bible Study and text messaging.  One Akha group in Chiang Rai is thinking about using the Children’s Bible Study to teach and strengthen the faith of at least 3,000 children in their church.  More than 100 people asked to begin receiving the weekly encouraging text messages from LHM Thailand.

While the director was attending meetings, the LHM staff operated the ministry booth.  Each day they were able to talk in detail about the LHM ministry with many visitors to the booth.  They also had good success selling many products from our LHM bookstore.

On the last day of the conference all EFT members voted to elect some new committee members and a new EFT chairman, who will serve for the next four years.  More than just a time to conduct business, the conference provided many good opportunities for fellowship, worship, meeting new and old friends, and connecting with other Thailand Christians who are also interested in proclaiming Christ throughout Thailand.
