J.P. and Aimee Cima

Serving the Lord in the Kingdom of Cambodia


 

Bio

J.P. and Aimee, along with their children (Celeste, 11; Bella, 9; and Isaac, 1), have served in southeast Asia for 11 years, currently in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. J.P. serves the Cambodia Lutheran Church (CLC), a growing collection of Lutheran congregations. J.P. travels throughout Cambodia to equip and empower the leaders of the CLC with informal mentorship and formal theological education, that they might boldly announce and demonstrate the Gospel to the people of Cambodia. Aimee serves the entire Asia region as a vocational manager for human care. In Cambodia, she supports the efforts of Concordia Welfare and Education Foundation (CWEF) as it works with communities to improve education and health, particularly for Cambodian children. The rest of J.P. and Aimee’s time is spent learning Khmer language, whizzing around on motorbikes with their daughters, and chasing their toddler son up and down the house.

J.P. was born and raised in Richmond, Va., and received his undergraduate degree in theology from Lenoir-Rhyne College in North Carolina. He received his Master of Divinity from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, where he is now enrolled as a Doctor of Philosophy student. Aimee (Crawford) was born in Tulsa, Okla., and raised in Richmond, Va. She has both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in dietetics from James Madison University in Virginia.

Prayers

J.P. and Aimee are humbled to play a small part in the big mission that God is accomplishing. The scope of His mission is wonderfully global even as its force is as local as an individual person’s heart. Jesus came for all of us and He came for each of us ... even you.

The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod Inc., including Mission Central (in Mapleton, Iowa), is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

A contribution designated (restricted) for a specific purpose when accepted, will be used only to fund expenses related to that purpose. Occasionally, we may receive more in contributions for a particular purpose than can be wisely applied to it in the foreseeable future or the purpose may cease to be feasible. In these situations, the LCMS will make reasonable attempts to contact contributors to apply their contribution differently. If a contributor cannot be contacted, the LCMS will use the gift to meet a similar pressing need that most closely matches the contributor's original intent.  Consistent with Synod Board policy, no more than 12 percent of a charitable contribution may be applied to administering gifts and communicating with contributors.  Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.

Our Tax Identification Number is: 43-0658188
