Two Listener Gatherings on One Weekend (Khok Kloi, Phang Nga Province)

lg-khok-klloi8September 2, 2016 was a long travel day for our Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT) staff.  They all rode in a van from Bangkok to Phang Nga Province in southern Thailand.  The trip of 800 kilometers (480 miles) took nearly 12 hours.

The purpose of the trip was to conduct 2 Listener Gatherings in Phang Nga Province.  The first was on Saturday, September 3 at Concordia Khok Kloi Lutheran Church in Takuatung District.  This gathering was for listeners of our LHMT radio program, “Encouragement for You.”  A total of 50 people attended, including 14 listeners, guests and church members.

Everyone enjoyed a program of games and fun activities before meeting the radio speaker, Mr. Amnuay Ruangchan.  It was a good time for our staff to connect with the listeners, have a good time together and begin building relationships.  In addition to meeting our LHMT staff the listeners and guests also learned more about our LHMT ministry programs.

When the listeners met Mr. Amnuay, he shared his personal experience as a believer in Jesus and how God has loved him and taken care of him.  He encouraged the listeners to trust in God, because God loves them and will never leave them alone.  Mr. Amnuay ended his talk by singing a song about when we have problems, we don’t need to be afraid.  God is with us and God is in control.

The local pastor then shared some encouraging words with the listeners and invited them to come to church and to learn more about God.

Usually our team and the local pastor visit some markets in the area to meet local people and invite them to attend the Listener Gathering.  Because of a very heavy rain storm that morning, our team was not able to visit the markets.

We thank God for safe travel and that everything went well with our Listener Gathering program in Khok Kloi.
