Dear friends in Christ,

As you all know, Gb’s tribe (Ganbold, Ishi, Sam, and Miriam) recently came back from our second family mission trip to Chicago and Washington, D.C. Thank you for your prayers and support. Our hearts are filled – filled with gratitude, joy, burdens to pray, and the Holy Spirit. It was a life-changing, meaningful, and joy-full experience. 

I had the opportunity to share briefly about our experiences with a few of our friends. This is actually our first mission report ever. It is hard to find the words to describe what we saw, felt, and experienced, but to encourage some of you to consider joining mission trips in the future, we will try!

Summer revival

July 5-15, 2019, Chicago IL

In 2016, we went to Chicago, prayed and connected with Pastor Batbold and his wife Miga, planting seeds in that area. During this time, we believed that God will send us again soon for these churches and Mongolian Christians who live in Chicago. So we were waiting for God’s timing while praying and fasting for our next trip! God showed us the right time and sent His Word of Knowledge

Seven months before our mission’s trip, we contacted Pastor Batbold and his wife Miga (Evangel Mongol church), and they organized two Sunday nights with three other churches. They received a word that God will bring Revival into Chicago through Mongolian believers, and named the event “Summer Revival.”

On the “Summer Revival” gathering, by the will of God, I shared from my Doctorate thesis about “Returning to God” and the “Come” the open invitation of the Father of lights. Understanding how important it is when you return to the Father, touched their hearts and people gave their lives to Jesus again.

Sharing Word of Knowledge: God showed Ishi His Words of Knowledge 1-2 months before our mission trip. And God gave an encouraging and restored His people. He showed her lady who works at a cleaning company and had lost her husband a long time ago. The first meeting was small and in pastor Batbold’s church. Ishi shared a Word of knowledge with one of the ladies. In the meeting, there was another lady who lost her husband and worked as a maid. God touched her heart and healed her with no one praying for her. She cried and praised God. And one morning, God woke up Ishi and told her, “Her kidney is unhealthy, tell her to drink more water and clean your kidney.” She said God, “God, my kidney is fine, let me sleep.” But God pushed her and told her again, “Wake up, drink water!” So Ishi woke up and drank water. And telling God, “My kidney is fine, why you woke me up? What is it?” He said, “You will find out soon!” And during breakfast, Ishi asked Miga, asking, “Do you know anyone who had kidney problem? God woke me up and told me…. “But Miga shaking her head and said nothing. And that evening we had a gathering and end of gathering Ishi asked people, “Is there anyone who has kidney problem last several years?” Few ladies were sitting together, and they all pointed one lady. And Ishi shared what God told her and how to take care of her kidney. And a few weeks before our trip Ishi gotta Word of Knowledge from God about a former boxer from another church who left his career encouraged him. And that meeting Ishi also asked one lady who called Tugsuu that God gave her Word for that lady. All of them they said, “Yes, there is a lady called Tugsuu, but she’s not here today with us.” And Miga turns on her phone and do video record for Tugsuu and send it to her. That words for her. 

And for the first time, my family served in worship team both Sunday services and “Summer Revival” gathering. 

Also, we visited Christian families during the weekdays, shared God’s words with them, and He encouraged each and every one of them every time! We met pastors that we haven’t met before and had fellowship with all of the Mongolian churches’ pastors and leaders in Chicago. 

They asked about the Mongolian Bible translations because we were using the translation from the original texts of Scripture. Ganbold explained the translation philosophy and methodology as well as the process of checking and approval of the United Bible Society to them. We heard that many are willing and choosing the correct translation of the Bible in the Mongolian language. God already prepared their hearts, and it was a blessed time! 

A New Season is coming

July 16-18, 2019, Washington D.C

This was our first trip to Washington, D.C. We went on our prayer walk around the National Mall, Virginia Ave, Pennsylvania Ave, Arlington, area. Tried to connect with Mongolian Christians, churches, and leaders. God allowed us to connect with pastor Tsoomoo, and we were able to visit one of his home groups, and it wasn’t a comfortable place spiritually. They were mostly correcting and doubting, and whenever they’d ask a question, they’d twist on the answers and refused to understand the sayings in the Bible! But thanks to the intercessors and prayer partners, God opened their hearts while the Holy Spirit started to flow in the room. At the end of our meeting, everybody was encouraged thanks to God’s words, and we spent a pleasant time with them! 

Two months ago, God gave a Word of Knowledge to Ishi while she was praying for this group of people. She asked their pastor, “June 27th… is this date related to you?” He said, “Yes, that’s my wife’s birthday. How did you know that?” And Ishi explained to him how she got the Word from God and how He wants his wife and family brought upon this season to finish and start a brand new season that’s been waiting for him and his family!” The pastor also mentioned that he had purchased flight tickets on June 27th, 2013, from Mongolia to the USA and gave his wife as a present. Pastor Tsoomoo gave us feedback that he was in grave doubt and despair, and this Word of knowledge touch his heart and strengthened his trust in God.  

We were so thankful to God and His Word restoring His people at the right time! 

God turned the bus!

We used public transportation while we were in D.C. One evening, we took the bus to the place that we were staying at. It was an hour-long trip, and we’d missed the bus stop. I ran to the bus driver and asked her, “If it’s okay, could you please drop us here because we missed the bus stop.” She stopped the bus in the middle of the woods, there was no other transportation, with nobody there. We were getting off the bus to try to another bus to connect with to take us where we needed to go. We tried opening the map on our phones but couldn’t find any service! Suddenly, the bus driver knocked on the window and signaled for us come back inside the bus. She said, “You know what, I will turn the bus, and you guys let me know where to stop, nearest to your place.” We were surprised, Ishi was quietly asking herself, “Is she an angel?” If the bus driver hadn’t helped us, we would’ve been walking for at least 40 minutes. Thanks to God and our “Angel bus driver,” we walked for only 10 minutes. All four of us saw how God can lead us and send His Angels to us! 

All in all, this trip was fantastic, especially spiritually, it was a new level of ministry for our family and for those who we ministered to. I want to thank all of you who supported our trip through intercession. We couldn’t have done this without you! 

Lastly, we want to thank and give Glory to God for using us to serve His beloved people in Chicago and D.C.

In Christ’s Service, Ganbold Noosov and Ishi

My Kingdom assignment to serve at a wonderful church of one of my dear friends in Odenton, Maryland was an unforgettable experience! Let me tell you about it!

For weeks after receiving the invitation, I was excited about several anticipated experiences. First, it was my longing chance to fellowship with my dear pastor friend who had recently lost her husband of over five decades, who co-pastored with her until his death. He was the Bishop and she the Senior Pastor. It was also an opportunity for me to spend some quality time with my son who lives in Baltimore, Maryland. I was also humbled by the invitation to minister at the church! Upon landing in Maryland I was greeted and hosted by my son. It was refreshing to see him and friends during my stay. It has been a while!

In addition to enjoying family and friends, I still had plenty of study and prayer time to continue to ask the Lord what His message was for the church. The Lord often gives me my messages in my sleep. It is very common for me to preach the message in my dreams and then capture it on paper afterward when I wake up. So, you guessed it, when I have to preach, I like to sleep! The message He gave me for the church was one I had preached before. In my time with Him, He continued to confirm it was what He wanted me to share. I ran this by my mentor and a few others… and we all agreed that the Lord knew what they needed and that I should share what He had revealed. So, I was rested in the assurance I had heard from the Lord! Sunday, when I arrived to the church with my family and some friends accompanying me, we were all welcomed and received so warmly!
I was there.
I was ready.
I was very nervous.

I was seriously leaning on the Lord for HELP! I asked Him to have His way in the meeting and was fully yielded to HIM for His way! He heard my prayer and that morning was not churched as usual! I taught a brief message entitled: How desperate are you — for your breakthrough? I used a number of scriptures from the old and New Testament! It was a short message and according to the testimonies of some, it was also “Sweet and powerful!” Hallelujah!

Pastor and I met in her office prior to the service During this meeting I received permission from her to pray for those who would desire prayer after the message. The atmosphere in the room that day left me with an urgent pull from the people desiring personal prayer. When I made the altar call a few people came down for prayer and the Lord moved on them powerfully. Some were even slain in the Spirit! I suddenly understood the pull that I was sensing in the Spirit! It was also a strong leading upon me to pray for the pastor when I had finished the altar ministry. Before praying for her, I asked one of the deaconesses who was assisting to please pass me the Tallit and I took the anointing oil that I had with me as well. I had purchased these from Israel during my ministry time there. I knew I was to use them both in this service. But this was that moment I knew I was to pass the Tallit and the oil to the pastor.

What happened afterward was nothing short of the Holy Spirit doing a tremendous work of comfort and healing in her! When I passed her the Tallit, she clutched it to her chest and immediately began to weep with brokenness. When I saw what the Lord was doing, I started to weep too! She then stood up and while still crying hugged me holding on as if it was for dear life. At that moment, I knew that deep ministry was taking place in both of us. I was overcome with a deep sense of anguish! While I held her I began to wail — loudly — tears streaming down both of our faces as the Holy Spirit was clearly doing a fresh and new work that I had never experienced before. The pastor was being comforted and healed from grief as Holy Spirit was moving from her heart to my heart and I could sense what He was doing in her. As she too, began to be slain in the Spirit, falling to her seat, over the next few moments He worked in Her. When it was done, she stood and I looked her in the eyes and said, ‘You’re good. He is good (referring to her husband who was transitioned into the presence of the Lord). The church is good and I am good!”

Praise the Lord! The church began to shout out loud and praise the Lord! We all knew and witnessed what the Lord had done for the pastor and we gave thanks to a wonderful Healer and Deliverer!

As the service was ending with the announcements the pastor and I started our exit towards the front lobby where we would be available to greet the worshippers as they departed. As I followed her out of the sanctuary she began to point to different people introducing them to me and instructed me to pray for them. So, I continue to pray and greet several people as we exited. Later, I was told by the Pastor and several members of particular things that the Lord did in the room that unforgettable day! The Pastor shared that there was one lady who came for prayer that day who never responds to altar calls. She said, “That’s God!” As we were in the lobby several people testified to me of physical healings including healing from shoulder pains, internal hurts and more! The Pastor even testified that she believed that my purpose for coming to minister at the church was for her!

She testified that she received what she was lacking in the current season of her life and could now move forward! Testimonies were coming in from various people as they passed through the lobby. I was overwhelmed as I knew we all had just experienced a move of the Holy Spirit! Hallelujah!
What the Lord did at the church that day was beyond words! But when I heard my son share his experience with me — I was outdone! He told me that day and for every day I was with him until I left to return home how much the message touched him!

Let me explain about my son. My son does not attend church regularly even though he knows the Lord and respects my calling as a minister of the Gospel. So what happened over the next few days as we fellowshipped was nothing short of miraculous! He spoke of the understanding he received and how the message was so relatable to him. And then came the words, “I am so proud of you!”

Later that Sunday evening, he presented me with a beautiful bouquet of yellow roses and a greeting card that read, “I was amazing!”

Let me tell you what the Lord did in the church was now being done for me. The Lord was blessing me to have the verbal and tangible blessings and affirmations of my son. The Lord did if for the church, for my son and for me! My son and I talked every day about the goodness of the Lord until I departed. Friends, that was my message played out in real-time…
It was a weekend determined in the heart of the Father to bless his church and to bless me and my son. I know there is a stirring and hunger that has begun in him! It has only just begun…

About ten years ago in South Africa, I had a dream that was very intense and was so disturbing the moment I woke up that I could not sleep and eat for almost three days. After praying for three days, the Lord gave me revelation for this dream.

Job 33:15 ‘At night when people are asleep, God speaks in dreams and visions. v16 He makes them listen to what he says, and they are frightened at his warnings. v17 God speaks to make them stop their sinning and to save them from becoming proud.’

In my dream, I could see our local church people sitting on a stage and wait for the coming of the Lord. On my right hand sits a beautiful woman with her hand on my leg. Everything inside me knows it was unacceptable because I am married and love my wife. I tried to take her hand of my leg, but could not. I just want to leave her hand a little longer, because it was so nice. In my dream, God spoke to me and told me, “If I come back for my church, and her hand is still on your leg, you will stay behind.” After that, I woke up. I started seeking the Lord and asked Him to show me who this woman was, and to remove her from me, and to destroy this which I felt was an idol. On the third day, the Lord gave me Psalm 119:36 “Turn my heart towards your statues and not towards selfish gain.” (NIV)

Eze. 33:31 “So my people crowd in to hear what you have to say, but they don’t do what you tell them to do. Loving words are on their lips, but they continue their greedy ways”. (GNB) 1 Tim 6:10 “For the love of money is a source of all kinds of evil. Some have been so eager to have it that they have wandered away from the faith and have broken their hearts with many sorrows.

After reading these Scriptures, I fell face down and repented.  I know that I was in church every Sunday, I preached, I prophesied, I was a home cell leader and worship leader.  From the outside, it looked like I was on fire for the Lord, and I DID love the Lord, but in the secret place God showed me my heart – my idol was the love of money! The Lord told me that I was praying wrong for the last three days. He could not take the money away from me because I would lose my house.  He told me that His heart’s desire was to give me more money for tithes and offering, missions trips, providing for my family etc.  The Lord told me to pray the way David prayed in Psalm 119:36.  He told me that I could not change my own heart, and I needed to ask the Him to change my heart.  That is why I could not take the woman’s hand off my leg in the dream. The good news is that God answers prayers and He changes hearts. My business started growing supernaturally and the 2008 worldwide recession did not affect me at all. Words cannot describe how God sent growth to my business. Ps 37:18-19. “The LORD knows the days of the blameless, and their heritage will remain forever; they are not put to shame in evil times; in the days of famine, they have abundance”. (ESV) The Lord put on my heart to tell business people that to seek God and pray Ps 119:36, and see what God is going to do in their lives, to ask God to show them their hearts and to reveal if hearts are turned on Jesus. My heart breaks when I see a business going under. The Lord showed me that in these last days that so many people use God’s Word to make money. 2 Cor. 2:17a “Unlike so many we do not peddle the word of God for profit.” We can go to church every Sunday, preach, prophesy, lead worship, heal the sick, be successful in our business, but if we have any idols in our life’s, we going to miss Heaven. Rom. 11:29 “For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable”.

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick, who can understand it.” (Jer. 17:9) “The Lord searches the heart.” (Jer.17:10)

The good news is God loves us and wants all to be saved, but this is the word of God and it will never change. We need to change and come in line with the truth.

Rev 21:7 “The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son.” Rev 21:8 “But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

10On June 29, 2013 I took a team of 8 middle aged adults (including myself) to San Pedro Sula, Honduras.  We were off on a short-term mission trip in what has been labeled as the most violent city on the earth for the last two years.  Drug trafficking and turf wars have led to several early deaths in this city.  Pastor Wilmer Godoy from Honduras had invited us to come and minister in this city, saying that the people were hungry for God.  I’ll be honest, I don’t remember being fearful during our time in Honduras.  I think the hunger displayed by the people of this country overwhelmed any concern I had for safety.  Not that we weren’t cautious – we were.

I had spent the months ahead of this trip praying for our team’s safety and for God to help us.  I had asked all the questions I could think of prior to going, but you just don’t know what will happen until you get there.  I had never been to Honduras, although I’ve been to a few different Central American countries on short-term mission trips.  My team consisted of mature, well-grounded christians but not very experienced in mission trips.

Costa Rica Outreach June 2014

This is a testimony of some of the encounters that my family and the mission team had in Costa Rica during the summer of 2014.  I am still gathering all of the teams testimonies to put into one document but for now these testimonies reflect many of the encounters that I remember.   Altogether we saw more than 170 people healed  during these two weeks and gave several hundred prophetic words.  We ministered at seven churches, a men’s prison, a small orphanage, and everywhere we went. The Lord was with us confirming his word with signs following.  We met wonderful new friends named Andres and Jacqueline as well as ministered with a dear friend named Emerson.
