Churches Plan to Continue ETS Training

ETS Phetchabun45On May 24, 2014 Chon Dan in Jesus Thai Church, located 320 kilometers (192 miles) from Bangkok in Chon Dan District, Phetchabun Province was the location of the final Equipping the Saints (ETS) evangelism training conducted by Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT) staff during the 2013-2014 fiscal year. Pastor Somsak Rinnasak, the pastor of Chon Dan in Jesus Thai Church, invited the LHMT staff to provide the training. He is also the president of Independent In Jesus Church Association.

A total of 111 people from 8 churches of the Independent In Jesus Church Association attended the training. The reports that we received at the end of the training were very positive. The participants were very thankful that the training was very practical and helpful. Also, it was a very good opportunity for them to learn about LHMT ministries.

Participants from all 8 churches asked for 370 copies of the LHMT materials from the training and 50 Gospel bracelets, so that they could use them to train more of their church members. One church asked for 100 sets of the materials, because they wanted to conduct the training for their church members and other churches in their area on May 31, 2014.

The LHMT staff is happy that they have 2 reasons to work with some of the training participants in the future. The first reason is that a total of 27 people signed up to become LHMT commissioned volunteers. The second reason is that the Independent In Jesus Church Association is planning to start a new church in Khon Kaen next year and has invited the LHMT staff to help with the training.

LHMT will also continue to be connected with 91 of the participants, who joined the program to receive LHMT encouraging Gospel messages on their mobile phones each week.

Please pray for these churches as they continue to use LHMT materials to train other people in their churches and increase their outreach activities in their communities.
