M:M // HELP - their work there June 26 2006
Monday before the festival begun we had the chance to visit some places
Batar where HELP International is working
on Monday before the festival begun. It was very
see how many people are literally saved from death.
There is a big alcohol problem. During winter
(almost the whole year) many drunk people are
lying on the street. They will freeze to death
if no one is bringing them in into the warmth.
So a team is collecting them. They can stay for
the night and get eventually some new clothes.
Then they have to go again.
One of them is coming regularly to church services.
For years now he never touched again alcohol
because he was so thankful that his life was
saved. A real miracle because those people are
really addicted to alcohol!
There is a church in Sharhad amidst a ger-district
and a wonderful new kindergarden for 50 kids.
Even in the middle of UB the mongolians live
in these Gers, the roundtents. After the festival
a team came back there for outreach. I had the
ability to join them for one day - one day before
my flight. It was wonderful though I felt very
sick. That was really a wonderful team. Only
women and a married man. With many of them I
stayed a lot of times during the festival, Keith
was my praying partner.
had a genious prayer and worshiptime together.
It flowed, some of the songs we sung I just had
on my lips. We had many words with water and
living streams that the drought over mongolia
will be ended - spiritually and naturally! When
we begun praying for certain ones of us some
psychic wounds broke up and many cried. A very
intense time. And really a wonderful team that
fittet perfectly together.
Me and another woman (Ulla) had another meeting in the evening cause it was our
last day. So we did something different than this team that stayed a week longer.
We went together with Ingrid, who was leading this outreach, to visit some people
in their gers.
poorest of the poor. Not to compare to our wonderful luxurious
gers in the guesthouse. Everywhere where garbage, the gers had
no foundation build directly on the dirt of the ground and no
fence surrounding it. In the first one only a boy was at home,
the rest of his family was on the way. Ulla tried to tell the
gospel. Finally we prayed and (very important) embraced him.
I think he was touched.
the second Ger lived two men without work laying all day long
in bed. Again only one of them was at home and in fact still
laying in bed. The women agreed this being my job - gulp. This
den was even poorer and smaller, they defacated into a bowl at
the entrance. I told him that Jesus would be his best friend
and that he could tell him everything whatever it would be: sorrow
or joy, rejoicing or wrath. We could pray for him too (and embrace
him). Ulla told him about her son who hung around in his bed
for three years and now has a wonderful computer company. I believe
Jesus touched him deeply.
I very much liked another service. There is a tower on the top of UB. In the
bottom levels live many children together who were former street kids. In the
top level there is a prayer room for mongolia. It is open for all the churches
of the city. You have a wonderful from there over the whole city. Wow, I really
would have liked to stay longer there.
I want to talk about another place: In one
of the ger distrikt there live a young man
with his family taking care of a boys flat
share. He himself lived a long time on the
street dealing with drugs. When he heard from
Jesus he even gave his life to him. But he
didn't really follow Jesus, never left his
milieu. He did this only recently. But now
he is red hot and has this wonderful service
in church. You really can see Jesus in his
life. He literally is beaming!
