This vast land is seven times the size of the UK, but has a population of just three million.

Mongolia

Mongolia is a country best known for its history, but radical changes have taken place in recent years. The peaceful revolution of 1990 brought democracy and allowed religious belief to re-enter the public sphere.

The number of Christians has grown from only four to perhaps 100,000, and the gospel continues to spread. Nevertheless, most of the country remains unreached and Buddhism and Shamanism are widely practised.

There are many problems with poverty, alcohol and the neglect of children.

Projects

The Mongolia Mission Centre trains leaders and evangelists, and is seeking to plant a church in every village in the land.

A women’s shelter in Ulaanbaatar helps women escape from the sex trade, giving them the opportunity to learn new skills and find secure employment.

A feeding centre near the city dump provides meals for many local children, as well as a safe place to play and hear Bible teaching from a pastor.

Finally, we work with a local NGO to provide Life Skills classes which are helping to shape the culture in many schools, changing the lives of thousands of children. Many of them attend follow-up Bible clubs.
