Local Live Broadcast and Listener Gathering

LG Sukhothai36Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT) is interested in making personal contacts with people who regularly listen to their radio programs. Information is collected to determine places in Thailand where larger numbers of listeners are tuning in to specific broadcasts and a church is located in those locations.

With the help of the local church a Listener Gathering is scheduled and the listeners are invited to attend. A program of fun activities is planned at the church and the radio speaker is available for people to meet personally. These gatherings have proven to be a good way for LHMT to identify people who frequently tune in to the programs and to connect a pastor and church members with the listeners in their communities.

LHMT recently conducted a Listener Gathering at Saman Samakkee Muang Sokhothai Church in Muang District, Sukhothai Province. Located about 6-hours from Bangkok, the church operates a community radio station that airs three programs produced by LHMT. Friday evening, September 11, 2015, the church broadcast a live radio program, which allowed listeners to call the station and talk with the radio speaker. LHMT staff were on hand to assist and to participate in the program.

On Saturday, September 12, 2015, more than 50 church members and people who listen to the “Because You are Loved” program gathered at the church from 10:00 a.m. until noon. The radio speaker, pastor, church members and LHMT staff interacted with the listeners through personal conversations, games and songs. This proved to be a good opportunity to begin building relationships with the listeners and to invite them to visit the church on Sunday mornings.

We thank God for the good connections that were made and for safe travel for the LHMT team. LHMT looks forward to working with Saman Samakkee Muang Sokhothai Church again in the future.
