After we completed our Christmas activity in front of our Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT) ministry center on December 24 and 25, 2015, we were able to connect some people who participated in that activity with Concordia Into Light Lutheran Church here in Bangkok.  Of the 17 people who initially signed up, a  total of 10 people attended the first two free English classes offered by the church.

Those who attended were from a variety of situations, including some high school students, a travel agent, a motorcycle taxi driver, a maid, a lady who does Thai massage and a retired man.  This was the first time that any of them had ever been in a church building.  Pastor Sompong Hanpradit, the LHMT director and some staff assisted LCMS missionary Dennis Denow and long term volunteer Robin McCoy with the English classes.

Offering English classes is one way in which the pastor and some church members can meet more people in the community and begin building relationships with them.  It is in the context of these repeated contacts and relationships that opportunities for sharing the Gospel will happen.

We pray that the people who are attending these free English classes will enroll in the full-time English classes offered by the church and that they will come to know who Jesus is and what he has done for them.
