»God is faithful, and through Him you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.« (1 Cor. 1:9)
Since January 2022, we have gone to different continents to preach the gospel of Jesus, to teach and to get together with wonderful friends. Finally, after two years of the pandemic and its restrictions, it's possible to travel again without having to bear too much effort.
When Dreams Come TrueThe highlight of this year's missions trips was our trip to Mongolia. 30 years ago, a team from FCJG set out for the very first Mongolia short-term outreach. They brought the gospel and relief goods to this nation with its breathtaking nature. Every day during this outreach, Walter peached on the black market, called Zach. There were miracles and that's how our as well as FCJG's and HELP's history with this exotic nation and its beautiful people beganf. The outreach quickly became a long-term project, for so many people gave their lives to Jesus and we simply couldn't leave them to their own device.

Just like in ActsThis time our first stop was in Bayan Ulgii. Our HELP community gave us a very warm welcome and together we celebrated our 30th anniversary in Mongolia. We met a meanwhile old man in a very remote kazakh town close to the border, who remembered us from 30 years ago and had given his live to Jesus back then. In the past years he founded a few churches and to this day he loves to worship. He writes originals and led us in worship. When we prayed together, he received the baptism with the Holy Spirit, and with his eyes beaming he said, »This is just like in Acts.« It was so moving and tears ran down our faces. And this was not the only time ...
Faith never failsWhether in Bayan Ulgii, Ulaanbaatar or in the Jesus Family in Henti, everywhere we got a warm and loving welcome and peopled expressed their thankfulness. We were deeply moved. Jesus maintained and multiplied that which has always burnt in our hearts: the love for him, for the Father and for the Holy Spirit, the love for the gospel and for the lost, the poor and needy as well as the love for one another which enables us to worship this wonderful God. All glory belongs to him alone. A small step of faith can do so much. We could help countless people in need; they got saved, got baptized in water and baptized with the Holy Spirit, and they got equipped for ministry. We want to thank everyone who has helped to make the kingdom of God visible and tangible in Mongolia in these past 30 years.
