Lutheran Orient Missions

Historical Sketch

The Lutheran Orient Mission (LOM) was established in 1910 at the Protestant Inter-National Conference for Foreign Missions in Edinburgh.  Originally named the Inter-Synodical Lutheran Orient Mission Society, it is currently called Lutheran Mideast Development.  Its purpose is to serve the Kurds, an ethnic group of some 25 million scattered among Turkey, Iraq, Syria, and Iran.  The Kurds trace their origins to the Medes of the ancient Persian Empire.

The first missionaries sent were L. O. Fossum, a Lutheran pastor from Berwyn, Illinois, and E. Edman, a pastor and veteran of the India missions.  They established a missionary compound at the city of Soujbulak; this property was completely destroyed during a war between Russia and Persia (1912-1916).  The missionaries fled at that time.  After World War I, Fossum returned.  Before his death in 1920 at age 41, he produced a Kurdish alphabet, grammar, an English-Kurdish lexicon, as well as translations of the New Testament, Luther’s Small Catechism, and a hymnbook with 100 hymns and a Lutheran liturgy.

Medical service was part of the missionary effort from the beginning.  Fossum and Edman had brought nurses when they first arrived in Soujbulak, and a succession of medical personnel subsequently served in the territory.  In the 1960s, Dr. Richard Gardiner, an English physician, labored to fund the construction a hospital in Gorveh, Iran.  His hospital was closed in 1979 when LOM was forced to leave the country.

Political circumstances made it impossible for LOM to continue its work in Iraq and Iran.  LOM was ejected from Iraq in 1959 for no clearly stated reason.  Nonetheless, Sadiq Shammi, an evangelist, was able to keep the Iraq mission field alive through the 1970s.  After Shammi’s retirement, no one was able to continue in Iraq because of the war with Iran.  At the beginning of the war, all foreigners were driven out of Iran, forcing the abandonment of that field as well.  LOM subsequently set up operations in Egypt and Bangladesh, while continuing to hold its primary mission to be ministry to the Kurds wherever they could be reached.
