A Good Day at Camp

 

LHMT set up the ministry booth and product sale at Christian Manorom Camp

Each year women who are involved with leading various activities in their churches join together in regional meetings.  From August 12-14, 2010 more than 200 Christian women from churches throughout Central Thailand enjoyed a special program at Christian Manorom Camp in Chainat Province.  Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT) was invited to set up a ministry information booth and to sell Christian books and music, Bibles and other materials from our bookstore on Friday, August 13.  Although our LHMT staff were not involved in any of the activities of the Camp, they had good opportunities to meet many of the women and to introduce our LHMT ministry to them.  This was the first time that a lot of the women had ever heard anything about Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand.

During the day many of the women enjoyed visiting the LHMT booth, talking with our staff and purchasing helpful materials and other products from our bookstore.  A large number of the women are involved in ministries for children and young adults and new believers.  They were very happy to learn about our LHMT Children’s Bible Study correspondence course.  Representatives from seven churches received the materials for 96 Children’s Bible Studies.  The women could see that these courses would be very helpful for them as they work with children in their churches and in the surrounding communities.  They also received adult Bible Correspondence Course materials to share with 30 adults in their communities. 

We thank God that at the end of the day we had met many women involved in ministries in their churches and that we expect to continue working with some of them.  Three of the women applied to join the adult Bible Correspondence Courses and asked to have three children join the Children’s Bible Study course.  Also, 21 women signed-up to receive our weekly encouraging text messages.

Representatives from two of the churches present at the camp asked if LHMT could conduct Equipping the Saints training seminars for their members in the coming year.  We hope to be able to add those to our schedule for 2011.

It was a very good day for our staff and we look forward to attending more of these regional gatherings in the future.
