Lutheran Vietnamese Ministries (LVM) began in 2003 out of Lutheran Church of the Cross in Altoona, Iowa.  In 2013 LVM joined the work being done by Pastor Tom LoVan of Morningside Lutheran Church in Sioux City, Iowa. It was then that Lutheran Asian Ministries (LAM) was formed. 


We began our work primarily in Vietnam and Cambodia.  In the last few years we have expanded our mission and are currently working in five countries:  Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Myanmar.  Three of these countries are in the top 30 countries persecuting Christians.  LAM is a recognized ministry partner with Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (www.LCMC.net)
