2022 Mongolia Mission Year-end Meetings

On Nov. 24, 2022, Mongolia Mission (MM) held its year-end and constituency meetings at Suut Resort. Seventy-two attendees arrived, with delegates from the rural churches as well as representatives from Ulaanbaatar. Morning devotion was given by Executive Secretary Hiroshi Yamaji, of the Northern Asia-Pacific Division (NSD). His inspiring message opened the meetings on a strong spiritual note.

Before starting the meeting, MM president Han SukHee shared the seven biblical meanings of the constituency meeting based on Acts 15, and talked about the purpose of the constituency meeting and what the mindset should be for the meeting. The following is a summary of the seven meanings of the meeting: 1) Togetherness of pastors and lay members, 2) Topics and conversation focusing on soul-winning, 3) Reporting of God’s work, 4) Choosing leaders, 5) Spirit of agreement and support in unity, 6) Teaching and preaching God’s word, 7) Encouraging and strengthening the believers and the churches.

The morning business session began with the MM president’s report given by Pastor Han SukHee and the executive secretary’s report given by Pastor Nyamdavaa Dovchinsuren. Attendees were then divided into two groups to select the members of the nominating committee, who then separated from the main body. Department reports were presented by each department director, with some reports generating active discussion from attendees. In the afternoon session, the remaining department and institution reports were presented.

Before the evening devotion, shared by NSD Treasurer Joel Tompkins, the nominating committee returned to share the names of the newly appointed department leaders. Adiyakhuu Oktiyabri, the new MM executive secretary, and Kim, YoungShik, treasurer, were selected at the NSD year-end meetings on Nov. 3, 2022.
