The Last Frontier

The Last Frontier

Christian Missionaries Conquering Mongolia

In the thinly populated Mongolia steppes, wedged between China and Russia an army of foreign spiritual do-gooders fight for the minds and souls of three million needy Mongolians. One of them, an African Catholic from the Congo, decides that his missionary work doesn’t suit this time and age anymore. After 70 years of Socialism Mongolia is rediscovering it’s own Shamanist and Buddhist roots and missionaries like him are controversial to say the least.
