One Fiscal Year Ends, Another Fiscal Year Begins

Every year the end of May is a very busy time in our Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT) ministry center.  Because May 31 is the end of our fiscal year our director and accountant have a lot of work preparing the financial reports for our auditors to review.   Our director also needs to write the monthly ministry report and conduct the routine work that keeps our program running smoothly.  Our LHMT team looks back over the previous 12 months to evaluate our ministry activities and check to see if we have reached our goals for the year.

We thank God for the many blessings that He has given us during our 2015-2016 fiscal year.  God gave us safe travel during our many trips across Thailand to conduct Listener Gatherings, Equipping the Saints evangelism workshops and School Outreach presentations.  We have been blessed to meet and work with many wonderful pastors and church members and to receive great feedback from many people who have enjoyed listening to the radio programs that we produce.  We always are grateful and feel encouraged by the stories we hear from people whose lives have been changed by God’s Word through our radio programs, our Bible Correspondence Courses and our Christian pamphlets, tracts and other published materials.

We are very thankful for the commissioned volunteers that God has given us in various parts of Thailand and for the people who have been supporting us financially and through their prayers.  We also appreciate the guidance, support and encouragement that we have received from our leaders and staff at the Lutheran Hour Ministries headquarters in St. Louis.

But May is also a time for our team to prepare for the new year ahead.  New radio programs need to be produced, new materials written and more workshops and gatherings conducted.  We thank the Lord for leading us and empowering us for the work He has planned for our team to do during the 2016-2017 fiscal year.

Please pray that the Holy Spirit will clearly show us God’s plan and direction for us as we move forward in the coming months.
