Monsoon Rains Didn’t Dampen the Day

LG Phang Nga 2013

Radio Speaker, Mr. Prawit Chularangsi presenting his radio program to the audience

Concordia Khok Kloi Lutheran Church in Phang Nga Province was the location of a Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT) Listener Gathering on November 23, 2013.  Hosted by Pastor Suchart Chujit, the Listener Gathering focused on the “Cheerful Life” radio program.

Nearly 70 people attended, in spite of the fact that the area experienced a very hard Monsoon rain, which made it difficult for many people who rode to the church on their motorcycles.  About half of the people who participated were regular listeners.   The other 35 people came because the LHMT team went into the local market and other parts of the town to talk about the Listener Gathering and to invite everyone to attend.

The heavy rain didn’t dampen the spirits of the participants.  They really enjoyed singing the songs, playing the fun games, winning prizes and meeting the LHMT staff and radio speaker, Mr. Prawit Chularangsi.  Mr. Prawit took the opportunity to introduce his program and encourage everyone to tune in regularly.

One of the best benefits of the day was that Mr. Prawit and the LHMT were able to interact personally with people and build some good relationships.

The next day, November 24, the LHMT staff and Mr. Prawit conducted another Listener Gathering at Concordia Takuapa Lutheran Church.  Pastor Suchart Srikakarn and some of his church members hosted nearly 60 people for the day.  Of those who attended, 22 were listeners.  The others came to enjoy the games, songs and prizes and to learn about Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand and the “Cheerful Life” radio program.

Although the LHMT team had to ride in a van for 12 hours to reach Phang Nga Province and to return to Bangkok, they were very pleased with the results of their trip.
