Orphans and Street Children in Mongolia
God Has A Good Plan
Years ago, I longed to go to Mongolia but the Lord never took me there.
Mongolia is the second largest landlocked country in the world and is located between Russia and China. For 70 years the Soviets occupied the country but today Mongolia is a free country.
It is with great joy I had the privilege of interviewing Bert, a former teacher from the Netherlands, who specialized in pedagogy and taught students to become social workers.
He and his wife Elisabeth were comfortable with their life, when God’s call came for them to move to Mongolia. Bert shared the difficulty of waiting on the Lord but how he learned waiting makes one stronger, more equipped to face life, and taught him the reality that God is good.
Bert uses his expertise to work with orphans and street children who survive sub zero temperatures in Mongolia by taking refuge underground – sleeping on warm sewer pipes. He also trains parents to care for special needs children.
I believe as he shares, you will gain fresh insight into how to pray for this beautiful land and especially for the children who have been deeply traumatized.
I pray you will be blessed as you listen to this podcast about orphans and street children in Mongolia. But I also pray you will begin to intercede for Bert and his team who minister to the orphans, special needs, and street children of Mongolia.
