Mother’s Day Activity at Our Ministry Center

4Mother15To help people in the community surrounding our Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT) ministry center celebrate Mother’s Day on August 12 our staff conducted a special activity on August 4 and 5. In front of our Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT) ministry center our team set up a table with some special Mother’s Day materials and a microphone and speakers.

Using Christian and secular music that honors mothers our LHMT team attracted the attention of local vendors and people passing by on their way to work.

We invited people to stop by and register with us to receive the materials and some candy and to have a chance to win free Mother’s Day T-shirts. On August 4, while going to work and during their lunch break, 157 people filled out our registration form and collected their free materials. At the end of the day the names of 5 people were drawn and they received their free T-shirts.

On August 5 another 153 people registered with us. Everyone enjoyed the Jasmine Mother’s Day pin and the card with a Bible verse inside. Those who won the Mother’s Day shirts were very happy. Some looked forward to wearing them on Mother’s Day, others planned to give them as Mother’s Day gifts to their mothers.

Several people asked why we were doing this activity. That gave us a great opportunity to talk about God’s love and the joy we have in giving to others.

5Mother11In addition to providing some materials for the people, through this activity we were able to meet and interact with shop owners and staff who work near us and some of the people who walk by our ministry center every day. We had a chance to tell them who we are and what we do and to begin building relationships with them.

Using the personal contact information they gave us on the registration form we will be able to do some follow-up activities to get in touch with them again in the coming days. We pray that we can continue to interact with them and get to know them better.
