When I got a surprise Skype call from Moogie—my friend in Mongolia—she was on her way to the Tokyo airport to go back home. (Moogie was the leader of the translation team for the Mongolian edition of Discovering the Joy of Parenting.) The door had suddenly opened for her to come to Japan with a ministry team from her church, but she hadn’t been able to contact me until the end.
It was great to get an update on how the parenting ministry was going in Mongolia. She shared that the first printing of the book had sold out in just a few months, and that they were in their second printing, with about 350 copies already sold out of the printing of 1000.
Moogie and her husband had been teaching the materials to a group in their church in the capital city, Ulaanbaatar, and also were teaching it once a month in a town about four hours away.
They shared that they also had had the opportunity to do a seminar at a church for the deaf. One of the young people they had been training was learning sign language so that she would be able to continue ministry there.
“In fact,” Moogie told me, “we have had more requests to do seminars than we can handle! So we are now thinking about how we can train more leaders!”
Pray for the expansion of biblical parenting ministry in Mongolia.
