LHM Ministry Response
Lutheran Hour Ministries (LHM)—Vietnam works with existing government-recognized congregations and organizations to assist in outreach in this country, where atheism is the "semiofficial" religion. Government regulations prohibit any religious activities outside the church; therefore, LHM—Vietnam cooperates with local congregations to spread the Gospel through programs such as Bible Correspondence Courses (BCC), puppet shows, videos, and musical performances.
Children and adults take delight in watching the LHM—Vietnam puppet shows. The team performs plays such as "The Lost Son" to teach about the love, forgiveness, and salvation of Jesus Christ.
With such strict government regulations inviting youth to the church to listen to the Gospel is not easy. Therefore, LHM—Vietnam creatively attracts youngsters with its evangelistic music show performed by a Christian musical team.
LHM—Vietnam's Equipping the Saints (ETS) program trains lay persons to nurture the spiritual life of individuals referred to them by LHM. Most of the local congregations lack the materials as well as the means to train their congregational workers, so ETS is highly appreciated in the community.
