Cambodia is in need of quality higher Adventist eduction. Many of the youth are leaving the faith during their high school years. Miranda Lundby is heading a project to build a boarding academy to nurture the faith of these young people and grow leaders for the future.
Cambodia SDA Academy – Lundby
Miranda Lundby is pursuing her Master’s degree in Education with the goal of building the first Seventh-day Adventist boarding academy in Cambodia! Many young people leave the church in their high school years because they have no Adventist option. This fund helps support Miranda as she studies and labors to make this dream a reality.
Miranda Lundby is a twenty-one year old from Montana. She is currently working on her Master’s in Education with a concentration in Curriculum and Instruction at AIIAS (Adventist International Institute for Advanced Studies) while at the same time serving as a missionary in Cambodia.
Since she was a small girl Miranda has had a passion for spreading the Gospel to the unreached through education.
Cambodia is in need of quality higher education in their own native language. At present there is only one Adventist academy that teaches in Khmer, and it is at full capacity. All other Adventist academies teach in English. There are several “Read and Feed” schools in place in Cambodia through ASAP (Adventist Southeast Asia Project) that teach elementary students about Jesus, but after about sixth or seventh grade they are lost again to the world because there is no Adventist academy to send them to where they can be taught in their own language.
We are told in the book Education p. 16 that “Redemption…is the object of education.” It is stated in Ms 103b, 1899, “If the ensign of truth can be lifted in educational institutions and in sanitariums for the sick, in the islands of the sea and in many countries, more would be accomplished in bringing
souls to the truth than can be accomplished by all other methods that can be devised.”
Cambodia is a poor and war torn country that is in need of the hope that only the Gospel of Christ can give. The most effective way to reach the millions in need is to educate and disciple the Cambodians themselves to spread the Gospel. This education needs to be carried out in their own language!
Education is a beautiful and effective tool in which to influence the hearts and minds of people for eternity!
Miranda has spent much time learning the Khmer language and is currently teaching english in a remote village along the MeKong River and living with a native family. She is also spearheading the establishment of an Adventist boarding academy in the area of Battambang for the Cambodian Adventist Mission and is fundraising through Jesus For Asia. This academy will teach in Khmer, the language of Cambodia.
We invite you to prayerfully consider partnering with God to fulfill the dream that He has put on the heart of this young missionary girl as well as the hearts of those at the Cambodia Adventist Mission–that of bringing souls to the truth through education.

Cambodia SDA Boarding Academy
Education is an effective way to reach not only the students but their families and community. The Cambodian Adventist Mission has a plan to develop a boarding school near the city of Battambang Khmer, the official Cambodian language. The first step will be to purchase land, about 9 acres, located 5-10 kilometers outside the city limits. Miranda Lundby, currently working toward her Masters in Eduation, is spearheading the project.

Cambodia Academy Vehicle
A vehicle for hauling supplies and staff and for making arrangements to purchase the land and start the building process is needed. Miranda is looking at a specially-manufactured Toyota Land Cruiser designed for aid agencies working in third-world countries like Cambodia. This one will be second-hand.
