Brookfield Team is Doing Ministry in Thailand

???????????????????????????????Late in the evening of Saturday, September 29, 2013 a team of six volunteers from Brookfield Lutheran Church in Brookfield, Wisconsin arrived Bangkok.  This is the second volunteer team that Brookfield Lutheran Church has sent to Thailand.  The other team was here in 2011.

In partnership with the Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT) director and staff, this year’s team came to do two different projects.  The first was a special English program for the 161 students at Wat Thakam School in Nakhonpathom Province.  For two days the Brookfield team did fun activities to help the students practice using English.  They practiced sentences, learned new vocabulary, played games and sang songs in English.  Although students in Thailand are required to study English every year, most of them never have a chance to speak English with foreigners.

The students and teachers enjoyed the program so much that they asked the Brookfield team to stay longer.   Unfortunately, the team’s schedule allowed them to stay only one hour longer.  The students were hoping the team would stay a few more days!

The Brookfield team did the programs at Wat Thakam School, because LHMT has done outreach activities there in the past.  The teachers and school administrator have asked LHMT to continue bringing teams to do special English programs at the school in the future.

LHMT thanks the Brookfield team for providing a great program at the school, which helps LHMT expand their ministry in that community.
