Lutheran Asian Ministries (LAM) is a Christian Non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based in Iowa (Morningside Lutheran Church in Sioux City, Iowa). We work in Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Myanmar, and Vietnam with population of about 241.2 million people. LAM exists to share the good news of Jesus and the love of God with the people of Southeast Asian countries, and to pursue and establish relationships with their governments and the church leaders in these countries. We cooperate with the Lao, Vietnam, and Myanmar governments to help in the development of religious, educational, and well/water objectives. We do this by funding and staffing projects in Southeast Asia that partner with others to help people in need. We are based in Siam Reap, Cambodia; Yangon, Myanmar and the capital city, Vientiane, Laos but work throughout the Southeast Asia nations to help the poor and improve life.
Our mission is to train and equip indigenous leaders and work with them toward self-sufficiency.
The Bible, Old and New Testaments, originated in the mind of God and was given to man by verbal, plenary inspiration. The Bible is our final authority on all matters of faith and practice and there are no other writings inspired by God in this way. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:16-21).
