History of Mongolia Ulaanbaatar Mission
"The first missionaries to arrive in Mongolia, Elder and Sister Beasley, were sent in the Fall of 1992, and they helped prepare the way for what was to become the mission we have today. That was the beginning of the mission effort. The first six young Elders arrived in the Spring of 1993, and the mission was later officially established with Elder Richard E. Cook called to be the first mission president in 1995. Currently there are upwards of 100 missionaries serving full time, including native Mongolian members. The mission will continue to grow as the beloved Mongolians come to a greater knowledge of their Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ, and spread the gospel to those in this cherished part of the world."
