Jesse (below) a Cambodian involved in mission work with Dr. Lo sometimes translates for him. Jesse explained about the ministries to neighboring countries; Thsiland, Laos, and Vietnam.
Dr. Lo & his wife Kalia coordinate LCMS mission ministries in Cambodia. Kalia directs Human Care ministries including well digging, distribution of water filters, clothing, health education, elementary school programs and home & church building projects.
Dr. Lo directs Gospel Outreach programs including seminary and theological training for church leaders from all four nations at the Lutheran Institute for Southeast Asia (LISA). Lo also coordinates training for othe church leaders and volunteers, Sunday School teachers, youth and other programs. In recent years the Los founded Grace International School in Phon Penh when a survey revealed that other schools operated by othe Christian groups did not include religious instruction.
