Mongolia mission - A few hundred Garden District residents may have found a plastic trash bag at their doorsteps this week.
Those who picked it up and read the attached flier know the trash bag was not a hint to clean the yard, but an international effort to end child trafficking in Mongolia.
The Kingdom Project is operated by just two men -- Gary Brown, 30, and David Grey, 26, of Portadown, County Armagh in Northern Ireland. The project is a ground-level application of the Christian world view, meaning Brown and Grey travel throughout Europe and Asia ministering to the needy on the most basic levels. They provide food and shelter, and along the way, impart strength and faith in God.
Its latest mission arose after the pair visited Mongolia.
"We went to Mongolia because Mongolia is in the top 10 countries of those most unreached by Christianity," Brown said. "Eighty-five percent of the people have never heard of Jesus Christ. So, we went out there to work with the existing church. We worked with an American missionary named John Keller, and he works with young girls who are forced into and sold into the sex trade."
Though the two men had started a feeding program in Latvia, had visited and worked missions in Africa and had traveled across Europe promoting Christianity and helping the needy, it was the Mongolian children that captivated their spirits.
