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
