Our children enjoyed playing outside in Mongolia, no matter the temperature.
I think Mongolia runs on Airag, fermented mare’s milk.
Cindy with a nursing two month old, another in diapers, plus three more children, jet lag, not knowing one word of Chinese or Mongol, having no one to help us through customs with 22 pieces of luggage, watching adults in suits climbing over our luggage carts in the airport to get in front of us was too much. I didn’t ask the question, I assumed Cindy was there for the adventure.
Don’t tell me you never used the bath tub to thaw out a hind quarter? Just one letter changes the meaning of many thoughts. It does the same in other languages too. I know.
My son, Scotty, remembers a REAL Mongolian BBQ. With out water, how would you clean out the sausage casing?
To survive in a harsh climate, you have to be tough!
A scene from Mongolia. Pray for missionaries who live on the edge of civilization. Merry Christmas to all.
My first Bible lesson in Mongolia was five short sentences (Subject, verb, and object). You are on Holy ground when you translate from your heart language to their heart language. For me it took years!
Helen McNeely hosted a weekly television program in Mongolia 1993-4. I entertained with magic for one program in January 1994. I practiced the magic routines in Mongolian, but on the day of the filming, the co-host started asking questions about the magic as it took place which threw me off. So we filmed the show in English and dubbed it into Mongolian which made me to appear to speak fluent Mongolian!
