In the winter season of last year, a group of students of the REVIVAL SCHOOL Mongolia went to Bayan Ulgii. This region is the most western of the 21 provinces of Mongolia and most of the population are Muslims of Kazakh descent.
In 1992, when Walter Heidenreich visited this country for the very first time with a team of FCJG to preach the Good News of Jesus, they first came to Bayan Ulgii. Back then there was much of the supernatural happening – healing, signs and wonders by the power of the Holy Spirit. A blind man got healed on the market place and after this many people received Jesus as their Savior. Later we were able to start a HELP base in this region.
Now, in November 2018, a team of five set out to spread the gospel in Bayan Ulgii and to prepare this year’s summer outreaches. We would like to share with you what they experienced during this time.
Jesus loves the Kazakh people
Our outreach took 15 days and was full of adventures. For about 30 hours we traveled across rather rough roads. We struggled with harsh weather conditions (snow and wind) and more than once we had to push-start our van to continue. We were kindly received by Munkhuu and Ichko who have been in Ulgii since summer 2018 and are in charge of our ministry there. We really wanted to support them.
During the first week we shared the Good News with people and climbed on a mountain to worship God. There, some people received Jesus as they experienced the presence of the Holy Spirit so strongly. We proceeded to Ulaan Had, where around 100 families are living with their herds. The village is close to the Chinese border, most of the people have never heard about Jesus, but were open and willingly to give their lives to Him.
Healing power in Altai
In Altai, we visited several families and preached the gospel. An old lady was sceptical: »It is good for the younger people to believe.« However, that was nothing for her! I noticed that she suffered with health issues, so I asked her and she complained about pain in her legs. I asked if I could pray for her and after some hesitation she agreed. I felt my hands getting very hot when I laid them on her knee. I encouraged her to walk around the room to check if her knee was getting better. She rose to her feet, walked around a little - first very hesitant but she became bolder and bolder. Finally, she began to weep and told us that for a very long time she hadn’t been able to walk without pain and needed help from others. The walking aid, she had used, wasn’t necessary anymore! A loving Father in heaven had mercifully healed her!«
The story continues ...
After the Burning Hearts Mongolia event in the June 2019, we are doing outreaches in Mongolia and want to send teams to Bayan Ulgii to release the fire of the Holy Spirit. Did you get touched by our testimonies and has your heart caught fire while reading this report about what God is doing among the Kazakh people? Get ready and come - join us at Burning Hearts Mongolia and then go into the harvest of this world – maybe to Bayan Ulgii or wherever God will lead you to go.
Will YOU join?

In the beginning of August, we went on outreach to the beautiful province of Arhangai with a German team and brothers and sisters from Mongolia. We went through valleys and over mountains, through waters, across country. Our crew as very mixed: 16 people between ages 7 through 64 from different generations, nations and backgrounds ... and we travelled two weeks together. Everything we did we did together. We lived and cooked together, erected a yurt together, butchered a mutton and cooked it. Everybody felt it was a gain to be part of this team!
PreparedWherever we went, it felt like walking on paths that God prepared for us. We saw so many people of different ages (from 6 to 95) giving their lives to Jesus. We went on mountain tops and walked around villages to pray and worship God. And we visited small village congregations where we encouraged the people to give their lives to Jesus.
Stronger than deathOn the countryside: We met Chimgee who found Jesus the very first worship service we held. A couple of days later she met her friend Jimsee in her village. Both had the impression to go to the park to pray. Suddenly, Chimgee's son called: »Mummy, you must come home!« His sister - 18 years of age - tried to commit suicide. He saved her the very last minute - she was already unconcious. Chimgee ran home and found her daughter. She was injured but alive. The next day, our team met the girl. She was still very weak, but with all her heart she gave her life to Jesus!
Chimgee and Jimsee are convinced that the Holy Spirit led them to go to the park in order to pray and to defeat the plans of the devil who doesn't do anything but go around to kill and destroy!
Broad horizonMany said after his outreach that is was a gain to walk alongside each other as an international team. Their horizon was broadened and we beleive that some got encouraged to take further steps towards missions. We might see some of this team as co-workers in the nations, for: »The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore, ask the Lord of the harvest to send workers into His harvest field!«

OutdoorWith this view in mind, some of the kidshouse staff went to a nearby shopping center to worship Jesus when it was really cold outside and thus impacting the atmosphere with God’s love. Whenever we are going to places and stand together to worship, people are drawn to the site ... always. That day, a young man stood and watched, and our team was able to pray for him. He has read the bible on several occasions and was open to receive prayer.
IndoorOur children feeding program opened its doors in November again. We are looking forward to welcoming many hungry children to provide for them - not only by giving them good food, however, also by helping them with their daily homework and also by giving them warmth and emotional safety. Beside that we are renovating our facilities, since we want the inside and outside of our Kidshouse to reflect beauty and spendor.

From Russia's Far EastOur HELP ministry has set itself the task to set up a pioneer ministry in the Republic of Buryatia. This most far Eastern part of Russia there is a center of Buddhism and Shamanism. A 5-meter-high Lenin granite head stands on a market place and shapes the cityscape.
Last year we sent out a Mongolian family to this part of Russia. They decided to serve God in that spiritually difficult region proclaiming and demonstrating the Good News of Jesus Christ. We want to know first-hand what made our friends lay down their lives for God and what they have done so far:
Good News ... from Germany
Gott hat mich mit meiner Familie nach Sibirien gerufen. Ich bete viel für dieses Land, dass die Gemeinde in Sibirien aufsteht und das Reich Gottes anbricht. Die Menschen sollen frei werden von Bindungen und den wahren Gott anbeten. Dafür brennt mein Herz.« (N.)
»Many years ago, I came from the countryside to Ulaanbataar. I was hopeless, completely devastated and very depressed. I was kind of a Buddhist, followed certain rituals and even worked in the temple. Also I had health problems.
When an outreach team from Germany came, they shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ with me. At that point I knew that I lacked something. I went to the service I was invited to with my handicapped son. Normally he suffered from epileptic seizures, but this time he was very quiet and slept peaceful in my arms. I realized that God was there. That night I gave my life to Jesus.
Shortly after I got healed of Hepatitis C – in a Christian meeting I received deliverance. I went to the doctor to have my blood checked and the results were very good – the healing was confirmed by a doctor. I am very thankful for all what God has done for me.
God has called me and my family to Siberia. I have prayed a lot for this nation, for the church in Siberia to rise up and the kingdom of God to break forth. My heart burns to see the people to be set free from bondage and starting to worship the only true God.« (N.)
Free indeedGott hat mich in die Mission gerufen. Jetzt lebe ich in Sibirien und lerne erst einmal Russisch, denn ich möchte sie schnell wie möglich mit den Menschen sprechen können und ihnen die Gute Nachricht erzählen.« (P.)
»I still remember the day I gave my life to Jesus – it was February 14, 2006. That's when my whole life started to change. Within one week I was free from smoking and after 10 days from consuming alcohol. Since then I haven't smoked ore gotten drunk. The strong headache I used to have, disappeared after my conversion, and since I need not to take pills against this headache anymore. Before my conversion I used to be very sad. There was no joy, I never laughed. Since I have met Jesus, I have become a very cheerful person. My friends even recognized my white teeth which they never saw before. Today, I like to talk to people and want to encourage them which I never did before.
God has called me to missions. Now I have been in Siberia for some time, where I first want to learn to speak Russian, because I want to be able to talk to people about Jesus and share the Good News as soon as possible.

Arrival at -43 °COn February 8, 1998, Tom and Heidi landed with their then 2-year-old daughter Salome and three big suitcases at the snow-covered airport of Ulaanbaatar. The icy winter air of the world’s coldest capital hit their faces with -43 degrees. At that time they probably didn’t think that they would still be living and serving in Mongolia 20 years later – with authority in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Suddenly there came a turning point – Tom
»I was born on a farm in Switzerland and grew up like a real hillbilly. That I would be traveling through the world one day for God – this was not part of my future plans.Out of different reasons I got involved in alcohol, drugs and other problems. I lived a chaotic life and just did my own thing. The turning point came when I cried out to God in a hotel room in Mexico, because my life had reached rock bottom. During that time Jesus met me supernaturally – in one day I was delivered from 8 years of drug addiction and other bondages. At this time I was 22.
Years later I came to the FCJG and God called me and my family to Mongolia long-term. Since then I am serving Him there. My heart is beating for this nation and its people. I want to see revival and the fire of the Holy Spirit falling with signs and wonders as it is written in the bible.
In addition, my ministry traveling to other nations of our HELP-ministries is growing. It is on my heart to lead people into their own 24/7-relationship with the Holy Spirit. I want to encourage them to be active in the kingdom of God.« Tom Wüthrich
The girl at the window – Heidi»Who would have thought that my life would go this way …I always dreamed about making a successful carrier as a nurse. I wanted to be a paramedic and rescue and give first aid to seriously injured people all around the world. I was proud of being Swiss and loved to live in my home country. In school I once wrote an essay about a girl standing at the window, dreaming of going into missions. I know today that God already put this calling into my heart when I was a child.
Now I have been living in Mongolia for 20 years and I am traveling through the country and to other nations – not primarily to help people with medical treatment, but to bring them the love of Jesus so that they can get healed and reach the full calling of their lives. Today, I am living the dreams of my life in Mongolia and I know that I am at the right place. I am very thankful to God for that!« Heidi Wüthrich
Thank you!Thank you for your loyalty, your commitment, devotion and readiness to make sacrifices.
Thank you for your love and humility, your willingness to listen, your leadership and your investment into the Mongolian people.
Thank you for not giving up, but always going on, for your wide view and your wisdom.
Thank you for your motivation, orientation and sharing your vision.
Thank you for your open hearts – you are awesome!
Are YOU also willing to receive the fire of revival, to keep it burning and to pass it on?

Born for MissionsMichelle is truly a real missionary child. Her parent have been in Mongolia for almost 20 years, and today they are heading the HELP ministries there. She was born in Mongolia, grew up there and she actually is Mongolian through and through. However, more important than that - she is a strong pillar among the young generation, an example and an encouragement to many. It was not always like that. There was a time when melancholy, depression and suicidal thoughts were her daily companions. »God, if you don't do anything this night, I am going to commit suicide.« And God came, and he changed Michelle to the core. She came forth from her hiding place, revealed her inner struggles, conflicts, fears and God healed her in every area - also with the help of peple around her. She shared her testimony at Come to the lIght in Lüdenscheid - so powerful.
Prayer fire with an impactMichelle is ablaze and when you stand next to her while she is praying, you get the feeling that you burn yourself only by touching her. The spark of prayer is igniting others, and this prayer fire is making an impact. Everything Michelle is talking about she also wants to see. She caught the vision of UPRISING ... thus she started UPRISING Mongolia - at only 18 years of age! Together with a team she is spiritually and organizationally taking charge of the whole event to which hundreds of young people from all over Mongolia and beyond with gather from October 5 - 8, 2017 in Ulaanbaatar. Alongside her there are wonderful spiritual fathers - Jerome Ocampo and Walter Heidenreich ... However, let's listen to what Michelle shared at Re|Formation Fire in Lüdenscheid ...
100% PotentialHow powerful to be able to watch in our days young people rising up in churches all over the world and being satisfied with mere programmes any longer. They want to see change and they are having the 100% potential and all abilities and skills to bring change about. However, one thing the don't want - they don't want to do it by themselves, but ask the fathers and mothers, both natural and spiritual to stand with and help them. UPRISING is one event where they gather in order to be equipped and blessed and where we pray for and send them into their divine destiny. Find more here!

»Let’s go to Thailand to the HELP International staff conference 2018!« This was the slogan for some of our leaders and staff members at the end of January. Some of our Mongolian participants flew by plane for the very first time in their lives, left their home country for the very first time and even saw the ocean for the first time.
Eight days later, full with new impressions, new inspiration and clear alignment they all came back home again.
Outreach to Pattaya – worship and evangelism join hands
During this conference we did an outreach to the largest red-light district of the world – Pattaya City. For our staff members it was the first time to be confronted with human trafficking of this size. It was a big challenge for all of us. That night, two teams were working hand in hand: While one stayed praying and worshipping in the prayer room located right in the red-light district, the other split in small groups and went to the streets.
Word of knowledge
»Go down the street, turn to the sea front and look for a woman in black.« According to this word we went off. It wasn’t that easy – but seek and you shall find – we met that young lady, a street vendor, sitting in a wheelchair. In spite of language barriers we could pray with her. On our way back we saw her reading our flyers. Two other members of another groups could pray with her – and a third group with Thai translation led her to Jesus that very night.
From hopelessness to new life
This woman told us: »I was palnning on committing suicide very soon. I got severely injured in a car accident and since have been sitting in a wheelchair!« We were looking for Jesus and because of this the lady found new life. Isn’t that wonderful? In his unconditional love Jesus is surprising us again and again. How encouraging – Holy Spirit is moving beyond all language barriers. Jesus, you are awesome!

From death to lifeIt's these situations that activate our fatih - are we serving a God who makes the impossible possible? Is he the one who brings the dead to life? Or is all of this mere theory? We believe it's the truth! Our team went to visit the young woman in hospital and prayed for her and the baby. When she went to her new appointment, the doctors heard the heartbeat of the baby again and there was no need for any surgery. Thank you, Jesus!
Miracles todayThe miracles we are reading about in the bible are no fairy tales for old. They are promises of God that we are to experience today. They are signes that Jesus did to glorify his Father in heaven. We want to reach out to this in faith and experience things like this in a greater dimension. For we are serving a God of miracles and we are living in a world that is waiting for people to share these with them and who believe in miracles!

HealingSo many participants testifies of healings during the event. A 13-year-old girl had strong pain in her knee and was limping very badly. After prayer the pain was completely gone. A young woman experienced inner healing of generational pain. This pain used to be so bad that her whole body was aching all the time. Many experience deliverance from powers of darkness and were delivered from fear and shame:
Free from condemnation»The session on the third evening was particularly important for me. In unity we prayed against the spirit of condemnation, fear and shame. When I opened my mouth to rebuke those spirits, God's Spirit delivered me in a very special way. Those spirits cannot do harm to me anymore. I am a beloved, chosen and appointed daughter of God. I want to encourage everybody to proclaim this over your own lives over and over again.« (Zoloo)
Your children will have dreamsEnkhmanlai' children (he is a worship leader from Ulaan Bataar) experienced something very unique during the event:
His daughter (8 years old) sa nine angles in a vision that were standing in a circle wearing hats from which fruit was hanging. She was so happy and thought that she was experiencing heaven. When she opened her eyes she could only see the nine angles in the room.
Enkhmanlai's son (3 years old) was also at the event and woke up from his nap asking: »Where is my fruit?«
God speaks through even little children and reveals what he has for them. We explained to the two that what they saw in their vision and dream was the fruit of the Spirit.
And finally there was Enkhmanlai's oldest son (10 years old), who had a vision of a beautiful person standing in front of him. He approached the person to embrace her, however, the heavenly being seemed to »evamporize«, but immediately showed up again and lovingly said to the boy: »I have appointed you!« In that vision, the heavenly being entered the boy's mouth and filled his body. Whenthe son shared this vision, Enkhmanlai's family was in awe, got renewed and was led into deep repentance.
A new generation»My highlight was Ochma, a worship leader. Pregnant she was standing on stage worshiping Jesus. To watch her was a prophetic sign to me for a new generation that is being born. In general, the church in Mongolia is used to receive and to take. It was challenging to mobilize the Mongolian youth to pray for their nation ... and with that a seed was sown. While entering into prayer, they acknowledged that they are the ones who need to step into the gap and we continue to pray that they youth in Mongolia will break through and live up to its calling.« (Michelle Wüthrich)
God is calling a new generation! The primary vision of UPRISING is to call the youth of the nations and to equip them to lay their lives down for Jesus' sake in order to passionately and fervently take the Gospel into all the world and to live out what they have been created for.
A new seasonUPRISING Mongolia closed with a public demonstration on THE central square of Ulaanbataar to which approx. 3,500 people came. This was the very first Christian event takting place on this square. The whole event was only possible because of the faith of ONE teenage girl - Michelle Wüthrich - who said »Yes« to God's call upon her life and who initiated UPRISING Mongolia. She had spiritual fathers and mothers at her side who helped to birth and conduct the whole event spiritually as well as many helpers who did the organization.
Prayer bears fruitWorship, prayer, laying our lives down for Jesus as well as repentance and intercession were all parts of UPRISING Mongolia ... And we may already see the fruit of this event ... In some parts of Mongolia, people have started to increasingly pray for their nation and to rise up against injustice in society, e.g. against abortion.

The wake-up callThe prophetic slogan »Mongolia shall be saved« was the bottom line and indicated that it was about much more than only a conference. We want to see that this nation is getting saved and keep on believing! This conference released a wake-up call among the Christians in Mongolia - we are already seeing Mongolian Christians courageously rising up for Jesus in their lives.
RevivalDuring the conference there was one part which released reconciliation between the generations. It meant a lot to the presently young generation to rise up for Jesus and stand for him in the future. There is a commission that Jesus has given all of us and it's so important that we walk side by side emphasizing the experience of the oder and the fire of the young generation!
We had the privilege to welcome international speakers to the conference and to embrace the treasures each imparted into the Mongolians. We saw the presence of God manifest in power and through signs and miracles - people got healed, they received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and got ignited by the burning love of the Father in heaven. A disciple of Jesus is someone who is doing the works of Jesus and to preaches and demonstrates the Gospel in power. The Mongolian Christians are conquerers and they are going to the nations to spread the kingdom of God. It's a privilege to live in times like these and having a share in equipping the people of God so it can go out and proclaim the Good News everywhere. God has called us to dream big dreams with him, to embrace his perspective and vision and to stand in faith. Therefore we are holding on to his promises over Mongolia and declare: »Mongolia shall be saved!«
