LHMT Director Joins In-Service Workshop for Christian Workers

From September 8-12, 2014, the Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT) director had an opportunity to  participate in a workshop to help Christian workers improve their English proficiency.  The LHMT director and other Christian workers often need to use English for communicating with individuals and organizations outside Thailand.  In those situations their common language usually is English.  Doing many of their ministry responsibilities in English, instead of their first language, can be a challenge.

In addition to studying English this workshop also was a good chance for the director to build closer relationships with many Lutheran church workers.  It was interesting and helpful to learn more about them and their ministries and to share ideas about spreading the Gospel of Jesus in countries that have a very small percentage of Christians.

A total of 18 workers from Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar and Thailand attended the workshop, which was made possible through funding from the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) and Lutheran Heritage Foundation.  Two retired LCMS teachers from Michigan and the LCMS missionary in Thailand served as teachers for the workshop.

Everyone is hoping that there will be more in-service training opportunities in the future.
