GET INVOLVED IN MONGOLIA
An Ancient People. A Newborn Faith. A Chance to Serve.
The number of Christians in Mongolia has grown from 4 to nearly 60,000 since 1991! Our missionaries, Floyd and Lynne Sebald, have served in Mongolia for over 15 years, and Floyd was the Country Director for Mongolia Campus Crusade for Christ (MCCC) until March 2012 when he will turn over leadership to Bataa.
The church of Mongolia has a great energy for reaching their nation with the gospel, and is seeking support in Christian discipleship, leadership development, family life issues, addictions, ethics and other arenas.
Love, Grow, GO together to MonGOlia. GO help our Mongolia friends as they share God's good news. We GO to help Mongolia Campus Crusade for Christ (MCCC) with their mission. We GO to work alongside, encourage, care, support, and share in Christ's love.Watch this page for information about these trips and to learn what was accomplished.
In 2013, Teams from 1st Pres to MonGOlia include:
Teachers -- June 28 - July 15, 2013
Please pray about allowing God to use you in Mongolia.
For the fifth summer, First Pres has an exciting opportunity to partner with Mongolia Campus Crusade Teachers' Ministry to offer English classes to Mongolian educators, school administrators and counselors. Our team teaches classes, participates in games and activities, and develops relationships with school personnel, most of whom have not heard the gospel. These relationships provide the bridge between Campus Crusade and the schools, and facilitate sharing of the gospel as well as follow-up in schools throughout Mongolia.
You do not need to be a teacher in order to be of assistance on this trip. You do need to speak English and have a willingness to let God use you. We also need at least two American administrators to share some basics about Christian ethics and leadership techniques as applied in our schools.
Tentative trip dates are June 28 – July 13, 2013, including travel days. At the conclusion of camps there is an option to stay for the opening of the national holiday, Naadam Festival 2013 -- a giant celebration that includes competitions in horse racing, wrestling, and archery -- all significant parts of Mongolian history and culture. The cost of the trip will be largely determined by the cost of air travel.
