Building Relationships through Mother’s Day Activities

The mothers and children had a lot of fun together on Mother’s Day Activities

Porntawee Church in Suphanburi Province was one of the religious groups selected by the provincial Department of Culture to help with a program to encourage high moral principles and to improve the quality of life in the community.  In connection with the Mother’s Day celebrations on August 19-20, Pastor Chumpol Kumphanyam and church members planned many activities for people throughout the community with a special emphasis on mothers and children.

People who attended were able to read many Bible verses and Christian teachings that were posted around the church and children were invited to participate in a special Bible quiz.  The purpose of all the activities was to share the Christian teachings and beliefs.  Because Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand has worked with Porntawee Church many times in the past and assists with the church’s community radio program, Pastor Chumpol asked LHMT to help.

Beginning at 5:00 pm, our LHM Thailand staff assisted the church members by conducting a fun fair that brought together children and adults from all around the community.  We set up four stations that mothers and their children did together.  They included throwing darts at a target, putting together some picture puzzles and doing Tangrams.  The last station was a guessing game where the mothers had to guess things about their children and the children guessed things about their mothers.

Throughout the day the mothers and children had a lot of fun together.  It was also a good chance for the people living around the church to get to know our LHMT staff.  Many of them have listened to our radio programs that are broadcast from the church’s radio station, but they never had a chance to meet us personally.  We are very happy that they welcomed us so warmly during the Mother’s Day activities.  Everyone who registered during the day received a special gift set from us, which included several Christian tracts, booklets and other ministry materials.  We also set up a booth for selling many items from our bookstore and for distributing information about our ministry.
