LHMT director introducing the Bright Teeth and Happy Feet project to students.

February 2, 2016 was the first day of the Bright Teeth and Happy Feet Project that Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT) did in Kuiburi District in Prachuabkhirikhan Province. We did our program for 87 students at D. Markaret Fuller School and for 96 students at Ban Pongasung School.

A dentist and 2 interns from Kuiburi Hospital explained to the students how to brush their teeth and the importance of taking good care of their teeth. Our Lutheran Hour Ministries team led the students in some fun activities and songs (including a song about brushing teeth) and distributed to each student a gift pack containing 2 toothbrushes, 2 tubes of toothpaste, 1 plastic cup, 3 pairs of school socks and a Gospel tract.

All of the students also received a free copy of A Child’s Garden of Bible Stories. Our thanks to the children in the Vacation Bible School program at Brookfield Lutheran Church in Wisconsin for donating money for us to give 540 copies of the Bible story books to children in Thailand. We also thank Pastor Wichien Rakkhantho from Kuiburi Church and his wife for coordinating the first three days of this project. And we thank our Lutheran Hour Ministries headquarters in St. Louis for providing the special fund so we could do this project.
