About Us

Ron and Tina answered the Lord’s call to declare the gospel in Siberia, Russia. They served in Siberia, Russia from 1999 to 2004. When they could not reenter Russia after their last furlough, the Lord opened the door to Cambodia.

The Fruins arrived in Cambodia in October 2004 and the Lord allowed them to start a Bible institute in April 2005. Most of the students were from their co-workers churches. Currently there is an average of about 30 students coming each class period. Classes are held every Tuesday and Thursday morning for 3 hours.

The Lord also started a church in June of 2005 in Takhmau. Currently services are held Sunday morning, Sunday afternoon, and a small prayer meeting on Wednesday evenings.

Besides the normal soul-winning and visitation times, they also have youth outreaches every Monday and Wednesday where they play sports activities. They hold clinics about once a month to help those with physical needs. Other activities include teaching English, translation work, and making of tracts and books to help the Cambodians to be able to do the work of the ministry on their own.

They are now transiting to Cape Town, South Africa as their new field.
