Garuna is excited to inform you that the new LISA Bible Training Center in Phnom Penh, Cambodia was dedicated on January 8, 2023. The center is the new home of the Luther Institute - Cambodia.
This new facility will house our Bible training ministry, a new congregation, outreach events, translation ministry, and have an office space for Garuna's ministry in Cambodia and Southeast Asia. Please pray for God to use this new facility in the training many pastors, deaconesses, teachers, and lay leaders.
Many thank to those of you who gave so much in support of this effort . We thank God that our goal of $400,000 was not only met but exceeded by His grace.
To God be the Glory!
The mission of the Garuna Foundation is to support and encourage the proclamation of the grace, mercy and compassion of Jesus Christ to the peoples of Thailand, Cambodia and surrounding countries.
"...The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field. "
Matthew 9:37-38 (NIV)
The Garuna Foundation operates The Luther Institute Southeast Asia (LISA). LISA focuses on the training of local national pastors, deaconesses, teachers, and congregational leaders in coordination with local national Lutheran Church bodies. LISA is a non-residential Bible training ministry with a Bible-based curriculum taught by local and international teachers.
The Garuna Foundation is committed to the development and growth of local national Lutheran Church bodies in Southeast Asia. The Thailand Concordia Lutheran Church (TCLC) and the Cambodia Lutheran Church (CLC) are emerging Lutheran Churches in the region that are developing and growing in Christ.
The Garuna Foundation is blessed to partner with the Cambodian Lutheran Church (CLC) in the Garuna Christian Schools (GCS) & Garuna Kids ministry. The Garuna Kids receive tutoring in math, the Khmer language, English, and most importantly, they learn of the love of Jesus each day.
