Worldwide Ministries – Mongolia



With its long cold winters, and short cool-to-hot summers, the landlocked nation of Mongolia shares a continental climate that is similar in many ways to Canada.

Bordered by Russia to the north and China to the south, Mongolia’s landscape is slightly larger in total area than the Province of Quebec.

With respect to modern-day populations and national histories, there are really no other Canadian comparisons – since Mongolia’s current citizenry is only 3.4 million; and the country’s history dates back to the early 13th Century Mongol Empire of Genghis Khan.

From 1921 until the late 1980s, Mongolia was a one-party socialist state that was closely tied to the former Soviet Union. In 1924, the nation’s capital city was renamed Ulaanbaatar – which means “Red Hero”.

In 2001, FEBC International launched radio station WIND-FM in Ulaanbaatar – following many years of airing Mongolian-language broadcasts by shortwave from the Philippines.

Once the ministry’s FM station in the capital was well received by its listeners, the decision was made to establish a network of regional stations in other cities and towns, as well as reach the country’s large nomad population.

Today, in addition to WIND-FM, 12 regional repeater stations are now proclaiming the Gospel message in this vast North-Central Asian country.
