Long Day, Good Day

ETS PhetchabunThe Equipping the Saints training that the Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT) team conducted on May 18, 2014 at Glory of God Church, in Pakthongchai District in Nakhonratchasima Province was a little different from the usual program. Instead of being scheduled for a full day, this training was held from 1:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. As a result of the shortened time, 5 modules were presented instead of 7.

The LHMT team left Bangkok at 6:30 a.m., so that they could attend worship at Glory of God Church and have lunch with the members before starting the training. A total of 31 church members attended the training.

Even with the shortened schedule, everyone who attended was very excited about the training. At the end of the afternoon they all said that they were eager to share what they had learned with their family, friends and community.

Fifteen of the participants signed up as commissioned volunteers and 20 joined the program to receive encouraging Gospel text messages on their mobile phones each week. Also, the church asked for 10 sets of children’s Bible study books for teaching the children’s Bible classes.

In the future the church wants the LHMT team to return and conduct a full ETS training and the church will invited a number of other churches in their area to attend. They also invited the LHMT team to do other ministry activities with their church.

Although the LHMT was tired when they returned to Bangkok at 9:45 p.m., they were very thankful that God had blessed the training and given them safe travel. Please pray that God will continue to bless the relationship between Glory of God Church and the LHMT in the future.
