We support Dr. Fung Lo and family, Kalia and Mercy at the Mission of Christ Network office in Thailand. Currently, Fung, Kalia and Mercy are serving the Lord in Thailand. Fung’s primary ministry is to improve the theological training that is currently going on with the Hmong pastors and leaders in Southeast Asia, where there are over two million Hmong still don’t know Jesus. He also provides support and discipleship training to the local Hmong Christian congregations to do outreach, start new ministries and plant more churches. Kalia’s primary ministries will be to assist an organization called “South East Asia Christian Services” by providing leadership and Christian education to the students and staff at Ban Hmong’s Hope Center, and initiates a deaconess training program for the Hmong women while finishing up her doctoral study in Higher Education from the Bethel University.
