Printed Literature Enhances Lives in Southeast Asia

Printed Literature Enhances Lives in Southeast Asia

Working in conjunction with government-recognized congregations and organizations, LHM staff and volunteers in Southeast Asia share the hope of the Gospel through Bible Correspondence Courses, social media, musical performances, puppet shows, holistic outreach like eyeglass clinics and nutritional programs, and soccer tournaments to demonstrate Christian values to youth.

One of the ministry’s longest-running and most effective activities is the distribution of printed Christian literature at churches and LHM-hosted events. On average, more than 1,000 people of all ages are reached each month through these printed materials. Not only does this project impact the lives of recipients but also the volunteers distributing the materials.

Huy is a 32-year-old volunteer who mainly works with children in the highlands. “Not only do I experience the joy of giving away books, but I have learned new lessons that have helped my spiritual life grow day by day,” he says. “This book distribution project also shows that we care for the young generation at a time when society is often immersed in technology.”

Huy enjoys seeing children sharing with each other the stories they have read and wanting to learn more through the lessons. “Children really love our books since they are well designed and contain meaningful stories,” he says. “More importantly, they firmly sow the seed of God’s Word in their hearts. We hope that one day these children will be touched by the Holy Spirit and their lives will be transformed.”

“I thank the staff for giving me this valuable chance to volunteer and I thank God for the opportunity to serve Him through this ministry.”
