“Please pray for Mongolia and our church’s Mongolian Mission Team”

 

Our church’s Short Term Mission to Mongolia starts tomorrow (8/28/2017) and ends on Wednesday, September 6th. This is the second mission team from our church this year after the Haiti Mission Team (3/15 – 3/21/2017). This year’s Mongolian Mission Team is comprised of members from both the Korean and English speaking ministries of our church. Most of us are familiar with the country of Mongolia. Of course we all know that there was the period in our country’s history when Koryo Dynasty was subjected to the rule of the Mongols, but in spite of that, we still have some fond feelings of compatriotism and comradeship toward them.

 

Everyone knows that at one time the Mongols ruled the biggest empire in the history of the world and that it was all started by ‘Chinggis Khaan’. As you know, Mongolia is now a landlocked country, located north of China and south of Russia and surrounded by other countries in Central Asia. In the world map, it looks like the seed of an avocado when it is sliced open. It takes about 3 hours of flying time from Korea.

 

The capital is Ulaanbaatar, and their language is Mongolian, but they have borrowed the use of the Russian alphabet in writing because of the old Soviet control and influence. They have long winters and daily temperature varies a lot, due to the continental climate. Their territory is 19th largest in the world and about 7 times bigger than Korea, but has the population of only 3 million people.

 

The Mongols had been nomads for a long time, and consequently they were slow to industrialize and modernize, but they are becoming urbanized and industrialized very rapidly. As they have unlimited natural resources, their potential for growth is enormous. But the Christian evangelism has not kept up with the rapid change of society, in which the social unrest and corruption are rampant. The country is being targeted by the Muslims with their strategy to convert them into Islam, and it is critical for us Christians to step up in our effort to evangelize them.

 

We are thankful to a member of our church for providing the funds for the distribution of ‘Bible Time’ in Mongolia since early this year. This mission of educating the future generation with the Word of God is urgently needed. We hope and pray that the Word of God takes roots in Mongolia and that Mongolia will become the beachhead in spreading the Gospel throughout the Central Asia and opening the 10/40 window for the unreached people.

 

I want to ask all of you to pray for the health and safety of our Mongolian Team, and for their successful mission activities. We are also praying for the expansion of the kingdom of God through the growth of Gerelt Church and Khisikundol Church, which have been planted in Mongolia. Our beloved Mongolian Mission Team, we will be praying for you until you return to us safely.
