Ratri is 59 years old and works as a gardener. She has two children and practices a non-Christian religion. Ratri learned about God while listening to an LHM-Thailand radio program. She wanted to learn more about who God really is, so she contacted the LHM-Thailand staff for more information. She enrolled in LHM's Bible Correspondence Courses* right away and quickly completed several courses. The LHM-Thailand staff also sent her booklets and connected her to the local church. She has been growing her faith while attending worship services and is working toward getting baptized. She thanks LHM-Thailand for the encouragement they gave her and shared that she is happier than she has ever been. She said she knows God is leading her life and she wants to continue to grow closer to Him.

*Bible Correspondence Courses are Bible-based studies that enable people of all ages, faiths and educational levels to explore the Bible's teachings and the Christian faith from the security and comfort of their own homes.

Marie Claire is 27 years old. Her young son had a stroke six years ago which left him unable to talk, walk, and eat. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, she and her son had to leave their home and now live in a small room with 14 people. Marie Claire expressed how hard it is just to provide food and medication for her son, and the pandemic has made it even more difficult. Marie Claire has grown apart from the church and feels disconnected now more than ever. Through personal contact from a member of the LHM-Cameroon staff, Marie Claire has been connected to the Christian faith. She regularly listens to the LHM-Cameroon radio program, has enrolled in the ministry's Bible Correspondence Courses*, and enjoys her new church community where LHM recently referred her. She is thankful for LHM-Cameroon and sees God's blessings in her life.

Pech is a school principal in Cambodia who is married with two children. Several years ago, he used to attend a local church, but his boss found out and demanded he stop going because a requirement for his principal position was to follow a different non-Christian religion. Pech did not want to lose his job, so he agreed that he would not go back to church. Recently, LHM-Cambodia reached out to him to see if they could do a puppet show at his school. He agreed and they set up a time for LHM staff to go to his school for the performance. Pech started talking with the LHM staff members and told them about his situation. They suggested that he attend a small group during the week so he can continue to grow his faith and learn about Jesus. He is thankful that the LHM-Cambodia puppet show reintroduced him to Christianity and he is eager to learn more about Jesus during his small group meetings.

Earlier this year, LHM-Sri Lanka conducted a youth gathering. The pastor of the church where it was held helped invite children to attend. Around 75 youth attended the event and only 20 of them were Christians. All the kids were involved in every activity like singing, group discussions, competitions, and more. LHM staff and volunteers saw the joy of Jesus in all the kids' faces after the final prayer. Soon after the event, a non-Christian religious girl named Amaya shared about her experience. She said she felt that Jesus was there to deliver them from their sins. She said that she and the kids she participated with felt that Jesus is always with them. Amaya said that she needs to show others how Jesus can deliver them from their sins as she has seen the correct path. She knows Jesus is walking beside her and she can hold on to the name of Jesus always.

Aung is 15 years old and is enrolled in the local high school. Staff and volunteers from LHM-Laos visited his school one day and he was able to hear the Gospel for the first time through LHM's performance. He has a passion for music, so he joined music training offered by LHM-Laos. During the music training, LHM staff shared the Gospel with him, and he decided to join the Bible study and enroll in the ministry's Bible Correspondence Courses*. He now follows many LHM-Laos activities and listens to their music on YouTube. He has also introduced some of his friends to the LHM activities and they have enjoyed them. After seeing the performance at his school and participating in some of the events, he believes in Jesus Christ. His parents do not believe in Jesus yet, but Aung is working on growing his faith through the LHM-Laos activities and hopes the Holy Spirit will soon begin working in their hearts, too.
