Ministry Prayer Needs

Radio and Worldwide Evangelism
One of Lutheran Hour Ministries' partners in international witness is Trans World Radio. TWR's Christian programming is heard by an estimated 4 billion people around the world. This includes Arabic speakers in most of the countries of the Middle East, who hear programming produced by Lutheran Hour Ministries and other providers over a powerful station broadcasting from the island of Cyprus. One challenge is attracting listeners who are non-believers. "About 80 percent of the people who listen to Christian radio around the world are already Christians," says LHM International Director Dr. Douglas Rutt. "We are working to discover how Christian radio can reach people whom the Gospel has not reached yet." Please join us in praying for the Holy Spirit's guidance in connecting with unchurched, unreached listeners.

Spirit on the Move
In October LHM's Vietnam ministry center hosted a small rally at a coffee bar in Ho Chi Minh City. "It was really more like a party," says Director Dinh Hai Au of the gathering, which attracted about 150 people. The event was low-key on purpose, because no activity that can be considered "evangelistic" is permitted outside a church. "We invited our volunteers and their unchurched friends to come talk, sing, share and have a question and answer time," says Hai Au. During the Q & A session, one young woman stood and asked, "Who is God that you are serving and worshiping? Does He really exist?" A young man followed up, "Is He the 'mighty God Who takes care of your life' as your singer just said?" "The Holy Spirit worked in us!" says Hai Au, and he and the center's volunteers responded by witnessing boldly about the love and power of God. Several in the crowd expressed the desire to learn more. "Please remember our center in your prayers!" says Hai Au. Join us in asking the Spirit to strengthen and empower our ministry center in Vietnam—and to continue to open the hearts of Vietnamese people to the Gospel

Florida Church Reaches Out with Children's Christmas Booklet
In preparation for the Advent and Christmas seasons, Sherry Abell at St. Luke's Lutheran Church in Oviedo, Fla. ordered 800 copies of Lutheran Hour Ministries' children's booklet The Christmas Journey. "We are using the booklets to remind all of our students and Angel Tree recipients of the message of Christmas," said Sherry. "Our Angel Tree project supports more than 200 children, adults and nursing home residents in the central Florida area. Oh, and I should have ordered another hundred books; I meant to order 900!" she told LHM Witness Tools Coordinator Suzie Salee. Praise God for moving His servants at St. Luke's to use LHM resources to reach out to their neighbors with the timeless story of Jesus' birth! Pray that God will give LHM and our partners many opportunities to share the Gospel together.
