The Lutheran Church of Australia shares in gospel fellowship with Lutheran churches in Papua New Guinea, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia and Indonesia. Some of these nations were once a harvest field where the LCANZ sent missionaries to preach the gospel to the un-evangelised. Now, despite Christians being harassed, imprisoned, or even executed because of their faith, these are areas where churches are active and thriving. Local Christians are sharing the love of Christ and planting churches with astonishing success, very often in places out of reach to conventional missionary methods.
Through our gospel partnerships, with the power and direction of the Holy Spirit, we participate in God’s mission, inviting not-yet believers to have a relationship with Jesus and be baptised into the family of God.

Caring for those society rejects
Home of Praise nursery is a ministry operating under the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Thailand Diakonia Department. It is located in the notorious Klong Toey slum, in central Bangkok. Dating back from the 1950s, Klong Toey is one of the country’s oldest and most well-known slums. Many inhabitants of Klong Toey originate from the country’s poorer northeast who have been attracted by the work opportunities of the district’s river port, Bangkok’s largest wet market, the business district, as well as the oil refineries in nearby districts. Aside from poverty, drug addiction is a very pressing problem among the slum’s youth, and basic amenities such as water and electricity are always in short supply.
