Story number 1 for 30 Mar 2000

By March 30, 2000

We begin today’s newscast with a look at the impact of Mongolia’s harshest winter in 30 years. The conditions are worsening from the countryside to cities, where high food prices are likely to squeeze already tight urban incomes. The Christian and Missionary Alliance’s Robert Niklaus says the work they have focuses on meeting both physical and spiritual needs. “Right now, we are very much involved in the northern part with not only church planting, but community development. In a sense, Mongolia is having a new day, and we have an opportunity of showing a people there’s more to surviving than just staying alive…staying alive to know God and to enjoy Him.” Niklaus adds people are really responding. “We do believe that the ministry to the body is a part of the whole ministry to the Gospel. People are open when they find others have compassion on them, and to find out that there’s not some commercial, or other kind of motive, save just to help them.”
