Though prostitution is illegal, it is a growing industry. UNICEF estimates about 19,000 sex workers are active in Mongolia. Ulaanbaatar attracts most of the prostitution, but growing markets are found in mining towns in the southern Gobi Desert and highway truck stops near the Chinese border. If truck drivers don’t have cash, they pay the sex workers with fuel, which the women can then resell to make more money. Pray for the NGOs who work among the sex workers and ask God to send Christian workers to reach these women with the love of Jesus (The Bible, 2 Corinthians 4:6).
