Mongols in Inner Mongolia survive bitter winters and have traditionally lived in yurts (tents), racing their horses and raising livestock. From a very young age children learn to ride and feel at home on the saddle. There might be as many as 60 Mongol subgroups! Many converted to Christianity between the seventh and fourteenth centuries.
Shamanism is a spiritual obstacle that needs to be overcome by the faithful prayers of the saints.
Christian broadcasting is available, and the translation of the New Testament is a work in progress. The literacy rate is high, so the Mongols can be reached with printed materials.
"The Lord is my strength and my song; He has given me victory. This is my God, and I will praise Him—my father’s God, and I will exalt Him!" Exodus 15:2
Pray that members of today’s people group will look to the Lord alone for strength and victory.
There are 12,000 known followers of Christ. Pray for a strong church planting movement to rapidly increase these numbers, especially in rural areas. Pray for the Mongol peoples to turn to the power of the Holy Spirit rather than that of their shamans. Pray there will be many from every different tribe of Mongols represented at the throne of Jesus. Pray for the JESUS Film to be made available in Mongol dialects and widely distributed.
