Prayer Opens Mongolia

news leader.jpgAmid the rugged beauty and fascinating culture of Mongolia, there is a spiritual awakening taking place. People are coming to Christ there because other people have prayed, worked, and given support to make Him known in a place where communism once forbade the practice of religion. It is estimated there were fewer than ten known believers in the late 1980s (according to the Christian and Missionary Alliance).

“Today,” writes Wayne Pederson, president of Reach Beyond ( “there are about 40,000 believers worshiping in some 600 churches across the country. That’s the good news. The challenge is that the 40,000 believers represent only about 1.2 percent of the nation’s population.”

In a ministry update, Pederson says, “More than a decade ago, I had the privilege of helping raise funds to establish the first Christian station in Mongolia. Today, the opportunity is even greater to accelerate the spread of the gospel nationwide.” According to Pederson, the goal is to work with local believers to put a Christian radio station in each of Mongolia’s 21 provinces, blanketing the nation with gospel broadcasts.

A Reach Beyond radio planter recently shared this encouragement: “I think the spiritual void left by communism has left people curious about Christianity.” He adds, “I believe that hope is contagious, and many Mongolian people are finding that Christ is the greatest hope of all.” Pederson says, “A door is open for us to reach the people of Mongolia like never before.”
