After Walter Heidenreich visited the president at the time P. Ochirbat and asked him for advice for the foundation of a Mongolian organisation, in 1994 the NGO HELP International Mongolia was founded. HELP International Mongolia in cooperation with churches are the legal foundation for all our ministries in Mongolia to this day. Through the NGO we are carrying out all humanitarian aid projects, while the religious organization (churches) are hosting trainings, conferences and the IHOLW (International House of Worship).
GET READY»1000 missionaries for Mongolia« was the slogan of the GET READY mission conferences (in Lüdenscheid, Germany and in Solothurn, Switzerland). More than 1,000 young and old people followed this call, thus uncountable international team were sent out from Lüdenscheid to Mongolia between the years 1995 and 1997. They ministered to the Mongolians and met the spiritual as well as material needs of the nation. In all of its 21 provinces the Gospel of Jesus was preached in public and relief goods were given out. Throughout those years, 33,000 people accepted Jesus as their personal saviour during this time.
Under the leadership of Axel & Christiane Fischer and through many long- and short-term missionaries the socio-missionary work grew strong over the years. Evangelistic and mercy ministries as well as training programs came into being and churches were planted. Thus the church planting movement Transformation Mongolia was founded. In 2010 it separated from HELP Mongolia and is now working independently.
ConferencesIn 1997, HELP Mongolia organised the first Christian conference in the country, which was attended by 2,000 people. The church of Jesus in Mongolia was still quite young back then. When we first set foot onto Mongolia, there were only a handful of Christians in this Buddhist country. However, throuch crusades and experiencing the power of God this changed soon. The church grew. In order to encourage, train and release the Christians, HELP Mongolia hosted further conferences and welcomed international speakers. Christianity in Mongolia could not be stopped anymore ...
In 2010, Thomas Wüthrich took over as leader of HELP International Mongolia and is leading the work into a new phase that stays exciting!
