About My Family

The country of Mongolia was closed to the outside world during 70 years of communist regime under the former Soviet Union. No religion was allowed to exist in Mongolia. No Christian witness was available during these years. However, the country opened up in the 1990s when the communist regime fell apart in Europe. Mongolia became an open country and that is when the first Christian missionaries entered the country with the good news of Jesus Christ.

I became a Christian in December 1991. There was only a handful of new believers at the church I was attending. It was a great blessing that a New Testament was available to read in our own language, which triggered a gospel movement in Mongolia. At that time, I decided to follow Jesus to plant churches and evangelize. I met my soul mate in my church and married her in 1996.

About My Church Plant

Soon after I became a Christian, I decided to become a church planter. In my early years of faith, I traveled to many cities and villages in Mongolia to evangelize and plant new churches. In most places, we had to start a church from zero because there were no Christian witnesses. It is now estimated that there are more than 600 local churches in Mongolia with nearly 80,000 Christians in the whole country.

In 2014, we followed our calling to serve the Mongolian immigrant community in Denver. It has been stated that more than 40,000 Mongolians have immigrated to the United States. More than 1,500 Mongolians live in Denver, but there is only one Mongolian church. We have been trying to reach our community with the gospel of hope since we settled down in Denver.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at namb.net/send-me.

Pray

Pray for spiritual revival among the Mongolians in Denver. Most of them became very religious when they settled in new places. Buddhism and Shamanism are the main religions of the Mongolians in the U.S. Most of them have heard the gospel, probably numerous times, but their hearts are hardened. Please pray for soft and open hearts among the Mongolians regarding the gospel. Pray for the spiritual wellness of our church, Maranatha Mongolian Mission Church. We are the only Mongolian church in Denver. We continue to disciple our new believers through home groups and prayer meetings. Please pray that our church would be a spiritually well-discipled church.
