New Believers Learn How to Share their Faith

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERATwenty members from two churches in Uthaithani Province joined the Equipping the Saints training sponsored by Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT) on March 9, 2013.  Although the LHMT staff followed the usual ETS format and schedule, this training was different from most of the other ETS workshops.  This time almost all of the participants were new believers.  Most of them have been Christians for just 1-2 years. 

During the discussion times many of the questions were about the Bible and basic Christian teachings, not just about how to share their faith.  Many of these young Christians were still not very familiar with some Christian concepts.  In addition to gaining more understanding about evangelism, the ETS training was a good opportunity for them to learn more about the Bible and who Jesus is. 

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAAt the end of the day a number of the participants said that they were very excited to learn so much and to grow in their understanding of the Bible.  In fact, they indicated that they are eager to learn more and would like to have the LHMT staff return and conduct another workshop.  This is something the director will consider, since they live just 200 kilometers from Bangkok. 

Fourteen people registered to be commissioned volunteers for LHMT and 16 signed up to begin receiving the Gospel text messages on their cell phones.  Some adults asked to have 6 of their children enrolled in the Children’s Bible Correspondence Course.

The LHMT staff also gave some pillowcase dresses to the daughters of some of the people who attended.  These dresses were donated to LHMT by some good friends who live in St. Louis, Missouri. 

We thank God for blessing this training and for the new relationships that were started between the church members and LHMT.  We hope that we’ll be able to visit them again to help them grow in their knowledge about the Bible and in their relationship with Jesus.
