Introduction

The religion of the early residents of the Mongolian region recognized only one uniform godly power, localized in the celestial vault. They also worshiped certain natural phenomena, and believed in a life after death in the form of spirits (demons). The artwork of the people, their great poetic talents, their epic works and the lyric poetry are outstanding. Singers and poets used to walk from camp to camp, singing their songs and epics, reflecting the expression of freedom and the immensity of the Mongolian steppes.

Ministry Obstacles

Mongolia is a large country, and many people live in rural areas.

Outreach Ideas

Perhaps Mongolian Christians will be burdened to carry the Gospel to the Dzakhchin people. We can pray to that end.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

The Lord is building his church in Mongolia. Pray for Dzakshin believers to be well instructed in the faith, resting fully on Christ and his finished work on the cross.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray the Dzakhchin people won't be overlooked as Christian workers take the Gospel throughout Mongolia. Pray also that these people will be able to care adequately for their families.
