WHO WE ARE

“For I know the plans I have for you...

plans for welfare and not for evil,

plans to give you hope and a future.”

Jeremiah 29:11 (Old Testament)

Message from the Chair

Gan-Otgon Lkhagvasure, Chair of Mongol Kids' Home Project

"The Glory of the Lord" Community Church

"My name is Gan-Otgon Lkhagvasuren and everybody calls me Ganaa. I am the pastor of Seobingo Onnuri Mongolian Community currently. I am studying at Torch Trinity Graduate University in Korea.
"My home church in Mongolia is "The Glory of the Lord" Community Church which was planted in 2010. We have several ministries for local Mongolian people to reach each and everyone with Gospel of Christ.
"And I am so glad and thankful that God is leading us to start a ministry for manhole children. It has been a wonderful work of God that has amazed all of us. It's a wonderful story you can read on this website.
"I am so grateful for Dr. Eiko Takamizawa for praying faithfully for Mongolian manhole children for 20 years. And I am so grateful for all my Japanese brothers and sisters who are committed to do the will of God."

I am married, with 7 children aged 2-17-years old. My wife, B. Selengee, and I adopted 4 children last year.

Dr. Eiko Takamizawa, Representative of the Supporters

 

Welcome, and thank you for visiting our website! 

 

In Mongolia, homeless kids are called “Manhole Children,” as they seek shelter in the sewers, the only source of heat to survive the frigid winter of Mongolia where the temperature drops down to -30°C/-22°F.  Today, more than 100 kids live in this poor habitat with no decent light, hygiene or safety, because they have nowhere else to go.

 

All children have the right to be protected and raised in love from their parents and family.  Manhole Children, however, help one another and live each day knowing no parental love. All they know is the psychological wound from being abandoned by their parents.

"I believe that all children are born with the life, gifts and talents that were given by our great Creator.  Each and every one of the children living inside those manholes have the future and hopeful plans that God intended for them.  It is my wish that they are all restored to the original image of God, can use their God-given life, gifts and talents, and live a life with purpose and joy to make a difference in the world. 

This project aims to support Mongolian Manhole Children through prayers and actions, so that they can experience the hope that the Creator has in store for them. 

I hope you will share in this vision and join us."

Dr. Eiko Takamizawa is from Kofu, Yamanashi, Japan.  She received her Ph.D. in Intercultural Studies at Trinity International University in the United States.  Dr. Eiko currently serves as Professor of Intercultural Studies at Torch Trinity Graduate University in Seoul, Korea.

”I hope this is the starting point. Because there are still many children!” (Local female staff)

"I think I see the light from the next generation, more so than mine." (Grandfather who brought the child)

"Although we may not be able to do great things, we pray that we will give to the Lord our possible best today. Thank you very much." (Izumi & Tomoko)

Setsu Shimizu (JCFN), Collaborator

"I took a step of faith to join this great ministry with hopes of being a support in any way possible for those children who are fighting to live even facing such huge obstacles of lives and society in Mongolia.  This is such a great opportunity to serve ministries for Mongolia with people from Mongolia, Korea, Japan, America and others.  I have a lot to learn but am looking forward to be a part of this great ministry."

Shinichi Takahashi, Adviser

“Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. “ (Mark 16:15).  It was 1994 when I first received the heart to pray for Mongol. I visited the country in 2000 for the first time. Since 2012, I have been serving in Mongol as a missionary, and have served in Ulan Bator region. From 2017, I have served as both a pastor and a missionary, going back and forth between Japan and Mongol. I took this role of an adviser, hoping to use what little experience I have for God. Mongol is a land of nomads, which creates its own culture. Even in the modernized age, their culture and mentality are influenced by nomadic lifestyle. I hope to be the bridge between two cultures. I pray that the day will come when adults and children, both in Japan and Mongol can live in the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Akihiro Matsumoto

“I studied with Pastor Eiko Takamizawa doing the Master of Divinity course at ACTS Theological Seminary in Korea during 1989-1992.

After hearing from Pastor Eiko that she had received a wonderful vision for Mongolian children, I decided to join in despite my lack of abilities.  Just as Paul and his companions confirmed the Lord’s heart after receiving the vision of the Macedonian man and crossed into Philippi, we worship the Lord’s name alone in the land of Singapore as we watch the pastor's vision being expanded at a remarkable momentum. We pray that the will of the Lord will be fully realized in the land of Mongolia, though this may not be a smooth road.”​
