Introduction / History

The name Khalka means "shield." The region of northern Mongolia has been called the shield since the sixteenth century. The Khalka language is largely intelligible with the standard spoken by most Mongols in China. Speakers from the two countries have little trouble understanding each other; however, one linguist points out that the two languages "have important phonological and loan differences."
The Khalka keep "carefully preserved genealogies to prove they are descendants of Genghis Khan." For centuries they were ruled by a hereditary line of nobles and princes, until they were stripped of power by the Mongolian and Chinese Communist governments this century. Not all of them in Japan are aware of their ancient conquests.
The Khalka Mongols are mainly in China and Mongolia, but there is a small diaspora elsewhere. One of their locations is Japan.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Most likely, the Mongols in Japan take up low paying jobs. They hope to earn money to either send or take back to Mongolia. They have a small population in that country.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Most of the Khalka Mongols follow Tibetan Buddhism, also known as Lamaism. In Japan, some are secular.


What Are Their Needs?

Khalka Mongols who have migrated to Japan probably need job training.


Prayer Points

Pray that the Khalka Mongol people will have a spiritual hunger that will open their hearts to the King of kings.
Pray for workers who will share the good news and tell the Mongols how to follow the Lord.
Pray for a movement to Christ among all the Khalka Mongol peoples everywhere.


Scripture Prayers for the Mongol, Khalka in Japan.
