Christmas program in Ulaanbaatar

By December 24, 2008

Mongolia
(MNN) — The people of Mongolia
do not generally celebrate Christmas. Most of them go to work as usual. However, WIND-FM, a partner of Far East Broadcasting Company, plans to
treat families in Ulaanbaatar
to a special program on Christmas day. 

WIND-FM hopes to reach families who don't know Christ
through the program, which it will hold at a state-owned drama theatre. 

"25 Happy Families" will win gift packages at the program,
which will also feature the Christmas story, games, listener testimonies, a
children's choir with a nationally-recognized singer, and a presentation of the
Gospel by a local pastor. 

WIND-FM has invited local media to cover the event, as well
as a number of churches to display information and answer questions at the
event. 

Four radio stations in Ulaanbaatar,
as well as three stations covering state regions, are airing a drama called
"The Life of Christ" daily during the month of December. Local churches are following up with
literature distribution. 

Fifteen years ago, fewer than 20 Christians lived in Mongolia. Today, WIND-FM is one of the country's most
popular radio stations. It is one of the
three most-listened radio stations in Ulaanbaatar,
and the government awarded it an annual certificate of honor in 2004.

WIND-FM's studios have the potential to reach a total of 6
million people throughout Outer and Inner Mongolia, including close to 1
million people in Ulaanbaatar. Pray that many Mongolians will hear the Gospel and respond in faith.
