Dr. Jairyong Lee served as the speaker during the general assembly at UB Palace commencing on the evening of the 20th day of September, 2012 until the Sabbath day of September 22nd. Roughly, eight hundred sixty people were in attendance that were greatly blessed and inspired by the faithful service of 150 Mongolian Hishands Missionaries and the heavenly music rendered by both the Golden Angels and the Descendants singing groups.

Above all, the powerful sermons shared by Dr. Lee moved the crowed. On Thursday night, he talked about being born again- comparing our spiritual lives to the birth of a child; that unless we are born by the Spirit and by the love of Christ, our lives will never be anew. On Friday eve, Dr. Lee spoke about the ‘Greatest Historical Event’, citing the world historic tragedy and calamities unfolding before men as manifestation of Christ soon coming.  During the Sabbath, the message highlighted about making ‘The Best Choice of your Life’, which made reference to becoming a member of the family of God, the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

The incessant toil and prayers of all speakers from NSD, MMF(Mongolian Mission Field) leadership, 150 Mongolian Hishands Missionaries, about 50 Korean lay-people supporters for community service and Mongolian Church Pastors and leaders indeed paid off because 246 Bible seekers received the certificate and pin of graduation as they completed the course of “Voice of Prophecy Correspondence school” and 103 precious souls received baptism on the Sabbath afternoon- a history, on its own right, knowing that many of the Mongolians are ambivalent towards Christianity.

As envisioned by the leadership of Pastor Elbert Kuhn, MMF Director, we are all to be ‘United, Committed and Focused’ on God’s mission; the mission of the SDA Church to proclaim to all people the everlasting gospel in the context of the 3 angels messages of Revelation 14. We are to carry the torch of light; for the end time is at hand!
