International Travel Team 2018 - Mongolia
Location: UlaanBaatar, Mongolia is a very stable, youthful country with many Christian organizations and missionaries coming to proclaim the Gospel. Health risks are minimal especially in the summer, when Pollution is not severe.
Project: 2 days of VBS programs, and a 3 day seminar on a variety of Biblical topics with young Christians from around the country. They are future leaders of the Lutheran Church in Mongolia. Since not many speak English, we will be training through translators. We will be presenting workshops on Forgiveness, and the book of Revelations, as well as some OAFC techniques; such as drama. We also hope to train a group to be able to teach Sunday school, and other children's ministries. Once equipped, the participants will return home and assist their local congregation with similar events!
Bonus: Worshiping with Kazakh-Mongolian Lutherans, learning of different ministries in the country, sightseeing and shopping in and around UlaanBaatar.
