ETS in Uttaradit Province

Lablae District in Uttaradit Province is a 6-hour drive from Bangkok and was the location for the Equipping the Saints (ETS) evangelistic training conducted by our Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand – Journey Into Light (LHMT) team on February 11, 2017 at Thai Hua-Dong Church.

Although nearly 70 people from 8 churches were expected to join the training, 2 big weddings got scheduled in that area on the same day. As a result 38 people from 5 churches participated in our ETS workshop. The people who attended were very enthusiastic and thankful for the training that they received. They are eager to witness to their Buddhist family members and friends and were happy to receive more information and practical techniques for doing that.

One highlight of our time there was having 9 young adults involved in the workshop. Not only did they enjoy learning how to share their faith with non-Christians, but they also helped lead our time of worship.

At the end of the day 30 people became LHMT commissioned volunteers and 28 asked to begin receiving encouraging Gospel text messages from us on their mobile phones each week.

We thank God for the good response of the people who attended this ETS, for the relationships that we were able to begin forming and for safe travel for our LHMT team. We look forward to working with those volunteers in the future.
