Special Program for Children’s Day

January 14, 2017 was the third time that our Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT) director and staff conducted a program on Children’s Day for children of families in the 21st Signal Operations Battalion Supreme in Saphan Mai, Bangkok. From 7:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. 53 children had lots of fun participating in a variety of outside games.

Our team has a good relationship with Colonel Attapong Pugahn, who is in charge of the 21st Signal Operations Battalion Supreme. He personally asked for LHMT to conduct the program again this year for the families under his command. The Colonel and many of his staff know our LHMT team well from the previous Children’s Day programs we did with them in 2014 and 2015.

Colonel Attapong was a student at Assumption Catholic School and his sister is a Christian, so he is very familiar with Christian beliefs. He allowed our LHMT staff to lead everyone in a prayer for the children and for Thailand.

In addition to receiving prizes during the activities, at the end of the morning all of the children were given gift sets containing a coloring book, crayons, candy, a plastic water bottle, Christian tracts and a copy of the LHMT children’s Bible Correspondence Course.

We thank God that everything went well and for the good relationship that we have with Colonel Attapong, his staff and the families in the 21st Signal Operations Battalion Supreme. We hope to build on that relationship as the Colonel also invited our LHMT team to lead their children summer camp  in the future.
