A Window into Life in the Suburbs


"Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these." Luke 12:27 (NIV)

Mongolia

Our church has a specific missions focus every year and this year, we're giving attention to the people of Mongolia.
Under Genghis Khan and his descendants, Mongolia was the seat of a great empire stretching from present day Poland to Korea. The Mongol empire was the largest contiguous land empire in world history. Today, it's a tragic story of poverty and social disintegration.
Mongolia is a deeply dysfunctional land... alcoholism pervades the country, which leads to domestic violence and street children take refuge under manholes during the night.
If you're looking for something to pray for, pray for Mongolia... the people there could do with some good news... the gospel of Jesus Christ to set them free from that which enslaves.

Watch this video, then pray...
(It reminded me of H.G. Well's The Time Machine)
