Shaping Families unto Christ
August 19, 2013

“Our work for Christ is to begin with the family, in the home. There is no missionary field more important than this. “(EGWhite, AH 35.3). It is through this calling that Mongolia Mission Field (MMF) is adamant to solidify the programs of the family ministry department.

Retreats and seminars are held annually to continually educate couples on how to establish and keep an Adventist Home- a home that will truly represent Christ in every aspect of life. This year, the MMF director, Pastor Elbert Kuhn and his wife, Cleidi, Family director, visited Erdenet City on June 21-24, 2013 to conduct another series of family enriching seminar. Erdenet City is a five-hour drive from the capital of Mongolia, Ulaanbaatar.

Twenty couples attended the event and some of them were non Christians. The Kuhns served as the main lecturers together with Sodbyamba Sodnompil and his spouse, Otgoo. The discussions focused on the importance of having a quality family time; of keeping a family budget; differentiating the needs between the men and the women, and the vital role of commitment in a marital relationship.

A workgroup was done to assess the learning absorption of the participants insofar as practical applications are concerned, and their reception of the Christian values promoted by the Adventist families. Feedbacks received from the evaluation were positive. Thus, it is hoped that the said twenty couples will impart good influences as they go back to their respective abodes. Every family that is shaped rightly unto Christ will make the home a little heaven on earth!
