The Garrison's Story

In 2004, Craig, Kara and their four children moved to SE Asia. For 12 years, the Garrison family poured their heart into God’s work in SE Asia. They are exemplary in their faithfulness to God and consistency in ministry. 

Concentrating most of their efforts in Myanmar, they served God’s people through relief work, education, leadership development and partnering with safehouses for trafficked young adults. Committed to knowing the Myanmar culture, they sowed deeply into relationships. A good friend shared, “They have invested in Myanmar for many years so they know and understand our traditions and the way Myanmar people think.” 

Over the years, God revealed the need for a focused type of discipleship—marriage training. “There is a foundational issue that needs to be addressed…how husbands and wives perceive each other, communicate [with] each other, and pass on those ideas to their children,” Kara explains. So investing in marriages in Myanmar has now become a primary focus for their ministry.

In addition to continuing their marriage trainings in SE Asia, Craig now leads Cornerstone International’s mission work as President, helping oversee close to 50 mission workers serving in 15 countries around the world.
