ULAANBAATAR, Mongolia -- While siblings are often called to serve concurrently as Mormon missionaries, either in their homeland or abroad, what is so remarkable is the extent to which this is occurring in Mongolia. After all, the LDS Church has had a formal presence here for only 16 years.


The Mongolian people are quick to share the gospel with their family and friends. Three-generation member families are becoming common. The spirit of missionary work has led these faithful people to serve full-time missions in large numbers, with about 170 serving or with calls at the present time. In the current year, there have been 13 sets of siblings serving missions from Mongolia.

Two brother-and-sister pairs who began Mormon missions on the same day in the same mission were Elder Tumur-ochir and Sister Munkhzul, and Elder Myagmarjav and Sister Adyadojin.
Elder Ganzorig joined his older brother, Elder Chinzorig, with three months between their starting dates. Sister Batzaya and Sister Zolzaya are sisters, but they were also missionary companions.

Baganuur Branch members may have thought they were seeing double when twin Sisters Munkhjin and Munkhtsetseg were companions serving in their branch. Brother Naranbat and Sister Altangerel had three of their children serving at the same time with Sister Batsetseg serving in the Washington D.C. South Mission while Sister Batchimeg and Elder Batgal were together in the Mongolia Ulaanbaatar Mission.

Elder Khishig-erdene has a call to serve in the Washington D.C. South Mission and his brother, Elder Enkhtuvshin, is a missionary in Mongolia. Sister Batchimeg returned from her mission in Sydney, Australia, this summer while her twin brother, Elder Batbold, is serving in the Singapore Mission. Sister Mandkhai is a sign-language missionary in Mongolia and her brother, Elder Tamir, has a call to the Washington D.C. South Mission.

Elder Khosbayar, a former assistant to the Mongolia mission president, completed his mission in August shortly before his brother, Elder Kherlen, began his mission in Mongolia. Elder Tuvshintugs has just joined his sister, Sister Myasuren, in the Mongolia mission. Elder Battsagaan has a call to New Zealand while his brother, Elder Khuder, serves as a mission zone leader a few kilometers from where he was born. Two sisters from Darkhan 1st Branch, Sister Narantsetseg and Sister Narangarav, submitted applications and began their missions together this month in Mongolia.

Heavenly Father is blessing these young servants from Mongolia as they serve with siblings doing this marvelous work with diligence and desire.
