Today we’re going to pray for two of our home missionaries who came to America from Mongolia.
That’s a huge country in north central Asia — between China and Russia.Our missionaries are Mojic and Munko Baldandorj. They became Christians while still in Mongolia and later came to America to plant churches among the estimated 25,000 to 40,000 Mongolians who live here now.
First, they helped re-start a church in Denver, Colorado. Now they are planting a new church in Oakland, California. Our church is supporting them through our Cooperative Program giving.
One of the main ways they will engage with people from Mongolia is through basketball, one of their favorite sports. Also, Mojic will meet with newcomer Mongolians and help them adjust to life in America.
Most Mongolians are Buddhist and cling to that as a bit of home. But Mojic and Baldandorj want them to have a relationship with Jesus Christ, not just follow teachings.
Let’s pray for this couple and their family as they serve in California. Let’s ask God to strengthen their witness so many will come to faith in Christ.
