Members Celebrate 20 Years of Church in Mongolia

On a beautiful, snowy day — Monday, April 15, 2013, at precisely 4 p.m. — more than 300 Latter-day Saints gathered at the top of Zaisan Hill in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, to hear a recording of the prayer Elder Neal A. Maxwell offered as he dedicated the land 20 years earlier on that day, hour and location. The theme of the anniversary commemoration, “Remember, this is your gift” (Doctrine and Covenants 8:5), was a reminder of the gift of the gospel to the people of Mongolia “in the nethermost part of the [Lord’s] vineyard” (Jacob 5:13).

Elder Tai Kwok Yuen, former member of the Asia Area Presidency who accompanied Elder Maxwell to Mongolia in 1993, observed how “the Lord’s hands have been moving unceasingly in this part of His vineyard.” Besides Elder and Sister Tai, the first two mission presidents and their wives attended, along with several of the first senior missionary couples.
