Ministry Prayer Needs

Back on the air
Thailand's military took control of the country's government in May 2014. Shortly afterward, the new military government closed all community radio stations across Thailand that had permission to broadcast programming free of charge. The government's purpose: evaluation of each station to ensure that their equipment and programming are up to the required standard. The impact on Lutheran Hour Minisrties—Thailand has been significant: 40 community stations that partner with LHM—Thailand were forced to suspend broadcasting. This spring, one of LHM—Thailand's partner stations in a community not far from Bangkok was approved to reopen and resume broadcasting. Join us in giving God thanks for this sign of progress—and in praying that more community stations will return to the air soon with Lutheran Hour Ministries programming.

Ministry milestone!
In 1940, HCJB, a radio giant established in Quito, Ecuador in 1931 by Christian media pioneer Clarence Jones, approached Speaker of The Lutheran Hour Dr. Walter A. Maier with an invitation to add the program to its lineup—in both English and Spanish. With the help of two Spanish-speaking seminary students and a quartet that learned some songs in Spanish, Maier brought Spanish-language Lutheran programming into existence. The next year, Andrew MelÚndez was brought in as the regular Speaker for the Spanish Lutheran Hour. International ministry had been born! In 2015 LHM has ministry centers in more than 30 nations and touches more than 50 with the Gospel—AND we're celebrating 75 years of international outreach. God is so good! Join us in giving Him special thanks for blessing LHM's work around the world!
