New Doors Open in Mongolia for SOC by Joel Pledge

New Doors Open in Mongolia for SOC by Joel Pledge

Pastor Darkhan Mukhko listened to the School of Christ on MP3 in 2013. The Lord really touched his life and he was determined to attend a School when he could. In the spring of 2014 we held a School in the south of Mongolia. Even though Pastor Mukhko lives in the north he traveled by car across Mongolia to attend the School. He was stirred in his heart after each lesson and he knew he must bring the School of Christ to his city. In the fall of 2014 we held a School in Darkhan, Mongolia. He came and felt we should bring the School of Christ to Northeast Mongolia near the Russian border to the city of Sukhbaatar.

We saw the Lord move from the very first day of the School.  The students came from sixteen locations in Mongolia and the local people came to hear the lessons in their spare time. One woman testified that on the second day of the School she was freed from the habit of smoking and others testified of healings. Their lives were changed because of the true foundation taught by the School of Christ.

Every morning and evening during an hour of individual prayer, students fervently prayed to receive the revelation of what they had heard from the SOC lessons. One woman came to tell us that God had called her to go to China as a missionary to preach the Gospel to the Mongolians who live there.

Once again we saw the Lord bring life into the hearts of His people through the School of Christ. Leaders were filled with the power of the Holy Spirit and revived. They left to go back to their churches to bring revival to their people.

We have already finished the translation of the School of Christ into the Mongolian language. It is only in the electronic format now, but we are currently working on the written format.  The videos of SOC are available on YouTube in the Mongolian language for all to view. I have heard testimonies from Christians who have been blessed by viewing the SOC on the internet. Each student upon graduation was given a flash card and MP3 disk with the SOC teaching to take home with them.

Thank God for His work in Mongolia, so many lives have been touched by the School of Christ. We are seeing more doors open up for ministry.

Mongolia Report by Andrea Sekhin

After the success of our last School of Christ in April of this year, we returned to the city of Murun located in Mongolia’s northern most province to hold our second School.  Just a stone’s throw away from Siberia, we ran the School of Christ for 45 students who had come from all over Mongolia.

Teaching the School

A former student had recorded the teachings of the 2012 SOC on his cell phone. The recording was not good, but for the past year a small church has gathered daily to hear the teachings.  All of the church leaders attended the daily Schoo,l and now the church has began to grow.

One student testified that they came from a church in the capital city of Mongolia, that was started by a SOC graduate.  The church is doing very well and is growing by leaps and bounds. We praise God for the fruit we are seeing.

One evangelist shared how a number of years ago she had fasted every other day for four years. Because of this, she saw many signs and wonders come through her ministry. However, she became filled with much pride because of these miracles. She testified how the Lord had stripped her of ministry and she did not understand why.  During the lessons of the School Of Christ, she saw how she had allowed pride to rise up and that she had begun to minister in the flesh. From the very first lesson the Lord began to break her and to open her eyes to see the difference between the flesh and the Spirit. She wept bitterly and repented before the Lord. She shared at the close of the School how she knew God was restoring her and how He had given her a vision to once again work in the country villages. She now sees that humility is conformity to Christ.

We haven’t the room to share all of the testimonies from the students. Many of them fasted for the entire length of the school. Two students have already gone to plant a church in a remote area; another has gone to be a missionary in China. Two others are leaving for the mission field in mid-October. Pastors have had their visions renewed, evangelists who minister on the streets were encouraged, and many more were incredibly blessed. Our translators were also extremely blessed as one was so depressed with life due to a failed marriage engagement that she was suicidal just a few days before being asked to translate for the SOC. She now is excited about the Lord and has felt the call of God to go into full-time ministry in a closed country to the east. The other translator was disappointed with the false doctrines of a “health and wealth” church she had been attending and had ended up in an extremely dead church. She is now so full of life, and wishes to aid in the work of translating the SOC book into Mongolian language.

The pastor who allowed us to use his church as a venue told us, “In Mongolia there is no other teaching like this. The School of Christ is a school of life!”

A professional media journalist came down from Russia and recorded this School. MP3 players have now been sent throughout the country. We are already getting calls from pastors and leaders who wish to have a minister’s conference early next year. A DVD of the School should be ready by that time and will be made available at that conference.

Thank you so much for your prayers and support. We are overwhelmed with the results of the ministry that is unfolding right before our eyes. The Lord is moving in Mongolia!

Mongolia Report by Andrey Skhin

We have just completed the third School of Christ in Mongolia.  The School was held in the central city of Huvsgol province, located in the northern most region of this nation. This “city” of 45,000 people is called Murun, and is considered to be a booming metropolis in this sparsely populated country. We were met by the local Christian leader, Pastor Beh-hey, who is a missionary/church planter and has planted twelve churches throughout three provinces in the lesser reached areas of Mongolia. He heard of the School through one of his church members who had attended last year. The pastor noticed a remarkable change in this man after he had returned home; he was full of  joy and love, and became a  witness for Christ.  Pastor Beh-hey invited us to come hold the School in his church and we had thirty students. They sat riveted as we taught these hungry students the lessons of the School of Christ. None of the students had ever heard teaching with such depth before. What a blessing it was as we ministered over the next two weeks and saw the students grow in their dedication to the Lord.  One leader shared how Mongolia needs teaching like the School of Christ because many of the churches have lost their first love and the life of God is no longer present. Pastor Beh-hey testified that he had been to five Bible schools but had never seen the spirit of God work so strongly in the hearts of  students. Pastors were amazed at the change in the lives of the students, and their commitment to seek the Lord in prayer. He explained to us that the previous evening, all of the pastors in their local area had met for a meeting. There are now approximately one hundred leaders who wish to attend the next school. Brother Clendennen always taught that revival never came through big propagators of religion, but through the prayers of a people with a broken and contrite spirit that tremble at His Word. We are seeing Brother Clendennen’s words come to pass  before our eyes.

The translation of the School of Christ book into Mongolian language is moving forward. We hope to see it finished soon so that future students can leave the School with a copy of the teachings in their own language.
