Mongolians on fire!

June 19-26 we were with a team training Mongolian men and women who love to worship, study the Word, and spread the good news across the prairies.

Transportation going and coming home was miserable, but the time with God’s people was tremendous. If you think it is difficult to preach, try it with an Chinese interpreter. Then try it with a second interpreter from Chinese to Mongolian. It takes awhile to get to the point, but it cuts down on the fluff!

Mongolians are tough! These people are determined to share the good news, pray for miracles, and plant churches. Many of them are shepherds. These days, instead of horses and dogs they use motorcycles to herd their flocks.

After three days of training they had a party for the church. They butchered, cooked, and served two sheep. At lunch everyone at each table had a knife to cut chunks of meat off of heaping platters of boiled lamb with gallons of milk tea to wash it down.

I fought back tears when I heard this old man play Amazing Grace on his Chinese guitar. I remembered his testimony: He had hosted some seminars, but he was not a believer. Then he fell off his roof and was paralyzing on one side of his body. He was healed when his wife and the church prayed for him. Then he believed and surrendered to Jesus Christ.

Prayer Requests:

  1. Please pray for us as we are in the planning stages of a trip this fall (Nov.-Dec.) to the Philippines, China, and Myanmar.
  2. Our daughter, Faith, departs Aug. 1 to visit her sister, Joy, and her family who are missionaries in Spain. Then she will spend 9 months nursing poor people on the Mercy hospital ship anchored at Benin, West Africa.

Thank You!

Dennis and Diane Teague
