Mongolia

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Franklin Graham and his ministry, Samaritan’s Purse, has been working in Mongolia for 20 years. They primarily help children born with congenital heart problems, such as a hole in the heart, to receive surgery for their conditions in the US, Canada, and Cayman Islands. More than 450 children have benefited from the surgery bringing life and wholeness. Praise God for the blessing this ministry has been to so many families. Pray that the Light of Jesus will shine brightly through this ministry. Pray that many Mongolians will hear the Gospel this Christmas season (The Bible, Romans 1:16).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Squashed in between Russia and China, Mongolia is a young democracy, allows religious freedom. In recent years, the Mongolian government struggled with accusations of corruption and a 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 Mongolians lived in the country, while now more than 100,000 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.
