Johanna Heidorn

Serving in the Asia region



Johanna Heidorn serves through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) in Asia, based in Hong Kong. She serves as a communications specialist for the Asia region, with photography as her primary focus. Through her work and her photographs, Johanna shares the story of what God is doing through the other LCMS personnel serving in this region, as well as the partner church bodies and all believers in Asia. Her photographs enlighten the church worldwide and encourage LCMS congregations and members to pray for and consider financially supporting those serving in this region and around the world. They also are used as a tool to reach out to the people in Asia who have not heard the message of God and His love for them.

Johanna’s hometown is Rochester, Minn., and her home congregation is Grace Lutheran Church, Rochester, Minn. She received a bachelor’s degree in graphic design, photography, public relations, and communications from Carthage College, Kenosha, Wis. Before serving in Asia, she worked as a photographer and an assistant graphic designer at Carthage College. In 2007, Johanna went to Russia with her family on a mission trip to support churches and Christian efforts. In her free time, she enjoys the outdoors, photography, hiking, camping, traveling, yoga, running, exploring new places, being with family and friends, and connecting with new people.


Pray for Johanna as she serves in Asia and Hong Kong and as she transitions to a new country and culture. Ask God to give her strength as she learns the new language as well. Pray for the hearts of people who will partner with Johanna in prayer and financial support so they can participate in the Kingdom work with her. Let us give thanks that Johanna is serving in this part of the world.
