Mongolia

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Bolor Ganbold was once Mongolia’s first female cadet; now she is leading another new beginning as the country’s first female general. Ganbold was given the rank of Brigadier General earlier this year and heads the Military Training and Education Department for the Mongolian armed forces. She has served with UN peacekeeping forces in Chad, CAR and South Sudan and continues to work for the UN Peacekeeping department. Pray for Brigadier General Ganbold, that she may serve with integrity and honor, setting a good example for others around her. Pray for salvation for herself, her family and those she serves with (The Bible, Acts 4:12).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Squashed in between Russia and China, Mongolia is a young democracy, allowing religious freedom. In recent years, the Mongolian government has struggled with accusations of corruption and the people’s protest movement grew demanding greater change. Mongolia’s economy continues to improve despite harsh winters that threaten the traditional lifestyle and income of cattle farmers. A third of Mongolia’s population lives in the capital, Ulaanbataar, while nearly half of the country’s workforce is nomadic. In 1989, less than a handful of Christian Mongols lived in the country, while now more than100,000 Christian Believers are thought to exist. In Ulaanbataar alone, there are approximately 200 Churches. In addition, there are small gatherings of Christian Believers in every province, but few Christian workers are focused on church planting in rural and remote regions.
