Long Trip is Worth the Effort

Participants were happy to receive the ETS training.

November 14, 2015 was the first time that churches in Porncharoen District, Bungkan Province, experienced an Equipping the Saints (ETS) evangelistic training conducted by Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT).

Each of the churches that participated sent some representatives to see what this training was like. The end result was that the 57 people who attended were very pleased with the program. All six churches asked LHMT to do an ETS training at their locations next year, because they want all of their church members to be able to receive this training.

As usual, the ETS training included sessions about why to share their faith, the theology of evangelism and practicing various practical techniques for sharing their faith. From 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. the LHMT team led the group in a variety of activities and songs in addition to the modules.

Although it took them 12 hours to travel the 700 kilometers (420 miles) to reach Sangsawang Pafag Church in Bungkan Province on Friday, the LHMT team was very happy with all that was accomplished during the ETS training on Saturday. A total of 25 people became LHMT commissioned volunteers and 52 of the participants applied to receive encouraging Gospel text messages on their mobile phones.
