ULAAN BAATAR, Mongolia (BNC) — The team of seven evangelists that has been teaching for two weeks in the capital has registered a sixteenth baptism, Luis Camacho said this morning on KTTR.org radio.

Tomorrow the team leaves the country to return to Texas and Colorado.

American evangelist in China Micheal O’Brein will remain an additional week and return to Mongolia periodically, according to the team’s Facebook page.

After the team leaves, follow-up work will be done by video conferencing via Skype. Bill Stewart has already set up several preachers to help with the teaching.

Apparently, the team felt the effort to be a good success, since the Facebook page also noted that “talks are underway over traveling to other countries and planting more churches where the Lord’s church is not present.”

  1. Brother Matheny, if I understood it correctly much of the set up and preliminary work was done through WEI or World English Institute. They were gauging the success of the Mongolia effort and contemplating similar cooperative efforts in other parts of the world where the no local congregation exists.

  2. What great news! I was just wondering the other day if there were any churches of Christ in Mongolia–it’s not a country that you hear about very much.

Reaction?
