Young Life Spoken Here

Est. 2000

When thinking of Young Life in this primarily Buddhist country, the word that instantly comes to mind is restoration. Launched in 2000, the ministry quickly took off. Just two years later, however, a tragic van accident took the lives of the national director and several volunteers and critically injured a number of local staff members. Ministry was dramatically reduced and the future unclear.

However, we serve a God of redemption and restoration, who carefully and gracefully rebuilt the ministry. Today, Young Life Mongolia is thriving, with over 1,000 kids known and prayed for by name. Nearly half of the entire country’s population lives in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar, where Young Life is reaching kids in college, high school and middle school. Capernaum ministry in Mongolia is making a huge difference in the lives of kids with disabilities. These kids now have the opportunity to attend camp, where they’re able to participate, have fun and learn how to trust in the Lord to overcome adversity.

At summer camp this year, more than 300 kids heard the gospel and 200 made the commitment to follow Christ. The Asia Pacific Division celebrates with the committed, resilient leaders in Ulaanbaatar and we invite you to join in our joy! Please pray for continued growth and provision for Young Life Mongolia.
