LHM Thailand Team Attends Celebration to Honor the Thai King

70 King's Throne 4On June 10, 2016 our Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT) director and staff, along with a local pastor and LCMS missionary attended a special program to celebrate the completion of the Thai king’s 70th year on the throne. The Thai king is the world’s longest reigning monarch.

Attended by the leaders and many members of the 5 Christian organizations registered with the Department of Religious Affairs of the Thai government, this was an opportunity to praise God and honor the Thai king. Those organizations include the Evangelical Fellowship of Thailand, The Church of Christ in Thailand, the Baptist Church, the Catholic Church and the Seventh Day Adventists. LHMT is registered with the Thai government under the Evangelical Fellowship of Thailand.

The organizers of the program had hoped that 1,200 people would attend, but more than 2,000 Christians participated in this special celebration.

The program included a poem and songs giving honor to the king, a Thai dance performance, some special songs that were written by the king and a prayer for the king and Thailand.
