Christian Sendoff Service

"Stone Flower", our sister and leader of our Erdenet church, went to be with the Lord in heaven this week.  Her funeral was the first pure Christian burial ceremony I've seen in Mongolia.

Her family, many who are also believers, honored her life in Christ by granting her this last wish for a Christian Funeral.  "God is so good" was sung as her body was laid to rest.

A wooden cross was installed with the gravestone which said Choka's name, the dates of her birth and death, and the words "With the Lord Jesus Now".

You can see some of what the Lord did for her in her life by watching a 2008 video here.

Here are
pictures of her graveside funeral and 'home going' service...
