Khalka Mongols in Korea, South

Koreans had their first experience with the Mongols in the 13th century when the Mongol Empire conquered and annexed the Korean Peninsula. Recently the two nations have become close, and there are some Mongolians who have made South Korea their home. The South Korean government estimates that 40 percent of the Mongolians in their country are there illegally, but their numbers are growing rapidly. Many Khalkas and other Mongolian people are migrant workers who serve in restaurants, construction sites and in grocery stores. Some Mongolian women have married Korean men.

Ministry Obstacles

Despite their hundreds of years of domination by other nations, Mongolians are often filled with pride from once ruling the largest empire on earth. Pride makes one less likely to recognize your need for a Savior.

Outreach Ideas

The Lord has called many to himself in Korea in recent decades. The South Korean church is very strong, and followers of Christ can easily reach Khalka Mongols among them.

Scripture Focus

"Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession."  Psalm 2:8

Scripture Prayer

Ask now! Ask Him for this people group to become part of His family.

Prayer Focus

Pray that Khalka Mongol believers in South Korea would be quick to repent of sinful conduct and would learn to live in the power of Christ's Spirit. Pray that they would seek to tell their family and friends about Christ. Pray for a Disciple Making Movement to sweep through the Khalka Mongolian community. Pray for them to be able to find good paying jobs and for their children to get a good education.
