Introduction / History

The Khalkha Mongols consider their language, Halh, to be the "real" Mongolian language since all other Mongols speak variations or dialects of Halh. Halh is understood throughout Mongolia and by Mongols living in Central Asia. The 13th century was a great time for Mongols, who enjoyed the world's most vast empire for 100 years at the expense of civilizations in Asia and Europe. They were eventually subdued, and in the early 20th century they experimented with a communist government which kept their economy weak.


Where Are they Located?

As the Mongolian communist government self-destructed in the late 20th century, Mongols faced greater levels of unemployment and poverty which they still face today. Those with the means migrated to other countries such as Belgium, although their numbers are very small in that country.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Though few in number, Mongolians sometimes go to European countries like Belgium as students. They get the training they need, and most return to Mongolia, though some stay. Mongolia faces serious problems with unemployment, so their future is bleak. Their numbers are so small in each Western European country that they have one cultural association for the entire region.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Some Mongolians in Belgium are marginally Buddhist. A Buddhist temple is a place to meet others, but not necessarily where they go for spiritual growth. Most are secularized, though there is a large enough Christian population among them that they might no longer be unreached.


What Are Their Needs?

The Mongol people in Belgium need to submit to Jesus Christ so they can experience the abundant life He offers them in John 10:10.


Prayer Points

* Scripture Prayers for the Mongol, Khalka in Belgium.

Pray that the Mongol people will have a spiritual hunger that will open their hearts to the King of kings. Pray for workers who are driving by the love and boldness of the Holy Spirit to go to them. Pray for a disciple making movement among them to begin this decade.
