Mongolia: One Place Where Freedom is Struggling for a Foothold

My article in Christianity Today on the church in Mongolia and the ministry of LifeQwest and others in that frozen land is now online. For more on this topic, see the January 4 post titled A Mongolia night. It provides more on the children–

For thousands of Mongolian children, the struggle is intense and deadly. Stop along the streets of the city and look into the stairwells, sewers, and open markets and you will see the heartbreak of Mongolia—its abandoned street children. There are an estimated 3,000 children living on the streets of the Mongolian capital, the victims of an economy in crisis and a society adrift. The harshness of the north Asian night puts them at risk. If they fail to find shelter through the long winter night, they will freeze to death. Their daily existence is a life and death battle against the four horsemen of the Mongolian apocalypse: cold, hunger, abuse, and hopelessness.
