Hey all. Long time no see! I'm trying to get in touch with some doctors that have been in Mongolia or that currently are in Mongolia. Anybody have some contact info? I was in Mongolia with Dr. Skaeblund and Dr. Dolan. So I know them, but no contact info.

For those of you interested in the Provo area, there is a guest lecturer, an archaeologist, scheduled to present his message, "In Search of Genghis Khan's Tomb," Tuesday, July 26th at 3pm in room 270 in the Spencer W. Kimball Tower. He was in Mongolia in 2002. It sounds interesting. I'd participate myself if I could.

Elder Benson's painting 04 May 2005
I'd like Elder Benson to know how many positive remarks we get regarding the photo of his painting of God creating the worlds that he gave us for Christmas of 1997. John is the partriarch in our stake and we have the picture in our living room where everyone sees it. If you ever have prints made, I'd appreciate your letting us know so that we can purchase one. It's one of our favorites.

Attention all Cox-era missionaries!! - Cox Reunion 09 Apr 2005
We have scheduled the Cox reunion for 7:00 PM on Tuesday, April 12th at the Lehi 25th Ward Church (700 S. 1700 W. in Lehi). To get there, get off the freeway at the Lehi Main Street Exit (Exit 282) and turn West (left if coming northbound, right if southbound). Go through downtown Lehi, go straight through a small roundabout, past some white vinyl fencing on your left, and turn left at 1700 W. Go straight until you hit 700 S. You will see the church building on your left. The only requirement for entry is that you bring something to eat or drink. I need some volunteers to bring some Mongolian main dishes. If you are willing to do that, please e-mail me at Mongolians and Non Cox-era missionaries are also welcome to come as well. The Coxes are excited to see everyone. Please let all of those you are in contact with know about the reunion as not everyone is hooked up to the website.

Mongolia Society 04 Apr 2005
I was privilaged to attend the annual meeting for the Mongolia Society and the American Center for Mongolian Studies in Chicago this past weekend. Unlike most in attendance, I am not much of a scholar or historian. Nonetheless, the meetings were quite informative. The Mongolian and American ambassadors were both in attendance, and I took some notes from their speeches that I thought you all might find interesting.

Ambassador Bold, Mongolian Ambassador to the U.S.-
1. Over 10,000 American visitors came to Mongolia in 2004
2. The election for the next Mongolian president takes place next month. The final candidates include Enkhsaikhan of the Democratic Party, Jargalsaikhan of the Republican Party, Enkhbayar of the MPRP (Communist/Revolutionary) Party, and Erdenebat of ? Party.
3. Next year, 2006, will mark the 800-year anniversary since the establishment of the Mongolian State by Chingis Khan.
4. Over 10,000 Mongolians reside in America, in the following cities, ranked by largest to smallest by Mongolian population: Denver, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Chicago, and L.A.
5. Ambassador Bold visited BYU Hawaii in January 2005, noting the largest number of Mongolian students there of any U.S. institution (approximately 50).
6. Currenly working with the Mongolian government to establish Buddhist monastaries in
the US near metro areas where many Mongolians reside.
7. Mongolia doesn't currently allow dual citizenship. Now trying to get that law changed.
8. Nearly 1,800 Mongolian students enrolled in US colleges/universities
9. Trying to make English the official second language of Mongolia

Ambassador Pamela Slutz, US Ambassador to Mongolia -
1. The #1 priority of the Mongolian people, as identified by them, is poverty reduction. #2 priority is corruption reduction.
2. Ambassador says entrepreneurship, investment, and trade spur economy and reduce poverty, not foreign aid and assistance
3. Mongolian government currently putting heavy pressure on current Christian churches in Mongolia, requiring them all to re-register with the government. She suggests one reason for this is the current head of the MPRP and presidential candidate, Enkhbayar, is a devout and faithful buddhist. The Ambassador also suggested the following websites:

U.S. Embassy Ulaanbaatar: or

Attention all Cox-era missionaries: Cox reunion 01 Apr 2005
President and Sister Cox will be visiting Utah on a break from their temple assignment in Alaska. They will be here between the 13th and 15th of April. Unfortunately, that will be too late for a missionary reunion at the normal pre-conference time. Instead, we are trying to put something together in Lehi between the 13th and the 15th. As soon as we have a time and a place, we will post the news on the mission website. All Cox-era missionaries that are able to are strongly urged to attend. Non-Cox-era missionaries will also be welcome to attend.

East Coast Tsagaan Sar Celebration 10 Feb 2005
Just tried to post this once, didn't seem to work. Forgive me if this somehow posts twice...

Since many of us really would gladly give our left arm to go back to Mongolia...but for whatever reason can't do it right now, it is always a bit of a bummer to be out here in NY and hear about all of the Mongolia-related/next-best-to-being-back-in-our-khairt-Mongol things that happen out there in Utah.

We here on the east coast (or at least Kayte Williams and I) have decided to take matters into our own hands...that's right...we're having our own Tsagaan Sar celebration. We've notified those of you in the Tri-State area for whom we have contact info...and are roping in some of our other friends to help them understand just what they have missed out on by not, as yet, having experienced Mongolia...but in case there are others of you out here, we thought we'd let you know about our little soiree/excuse to get our buuz fix for the indefinite future...and would love to have you join us...

Sunday, 6pm (technically not Tsagaan Sar anymore, but that is the best we could do...)
Chez Annie C (that would be my apartment)
237 East 20th Street, Apt. 9G
New York, NY 10003

Questions, subway directions, etc., feel free to call me - 617.230.3136 - or e-mail,

Hope this message finds all of you well, healthy, happy, and enjoying the new year!!

Hello everyone!
we are going to have a Tsagaan sar or Mongolian New Year Celebration on 11 February, 2005. it is going to be at 6 PM. I hope everybody will come on time. Bring some buuz, salad and drinks.
Don't forget to wear your Mongolian dresses and some bone games.
this is the address to the Party.

The correct address to the church is 1176 North 730 East, Pleasant Grove. If you need any directions, you're welcome to call me (Val) at 801.472.9690.

Take exit #278 (Pleasant Grove) the off-ramp will turn east and then straighten out north. (it's a long ramp). You'll come to a light where there will be a Macey's Food Store on you left. Go straight through the light. You'll pass over railroad tracks and then come to a 4-way stop. Continue east through the stop. You'll be at another street light, turn left (north). Follow that road past the cemetery which will be on your left and a school which will be on your right. You'll come to another street light. Turn left (east), the road will be 1100 North. Follow that up, over a canal and the church will be on your left. It's a big, grey stake center.
I think that should get ya'll there.
if you have any questions call me.

Translation job 18 Jan 2005
Thanks for all the people who have contacted me regarding the financial report translating job. There were lots and lots of people who have contacted me and I kept giving the same info, so I might as well give it here. The company is which is located in Midvale, Utah. My brother in law translates for them and I did a small project for them too, but a financial report is too much for me and my busy schedule. But if you would like to be considered for future jobs with them, feel free to send them your resume's. I wish you all good luck and I'm glad to have heard from so many of you.

Translating job for financial report 15 Jan 2005
Hello, I was approached to do some translating for Asian Translation Service and they also needed someone to do translating for a fiscal financial report for a company. I think they pay between 9-12 cents a word, and sometimes, these reports can go up to a couple thousand words. I anyone has financial experience and can speak Mongolian and English really well, please contact John Luangrath at I would do it but I've been back from Mongolia for almost 6 years now and my language is not as good as it used to be. So, here's a great opportunity for some of you recently returned missionaries or for you mongolians who are studying here in the states.

Asking vicariously on behalf of Tyler Hillstead, do any of you know the current mission president's email address?

Quote: "I have a friend of mine going over to Mongolia in a couple weeks and I'm looking for a male Mongolian RM that could truck around with him for a week or so to help with logistics & translation stuff. I wanted to get in touch with the Mission Prez & see if he had any candidate recommendations."

On behalf of all of the Cox-generation missionaries that attended the Gibbons' missionary reunion, I just want to thank all those involved in the planning and organizing of it all -- President and Sister Gibbons, Sister Infanger and anyone else who was involved.

Correct address to the reunion. 30 Sep 2004
Hello. This is Elder Luangrath, served from 1997-1999, and I am really anxious to go and hear what's new in Mongolia at the reunion this weekend. But I think the address is wrong. Can anyone tell me the correct address? I think it should be 730 E and not 930 E. AT least that's what the church website says. I'm not from Utah so I would be totally lost unless I mapquest it. Thanks all.


If you know me and would like to meet up while I'm in Utah, please call me at the # above. Bayarlaa!

Hello 28 Jul 2004
It is great to be in touch with all the friends I met in Mongolia. Eegii Balchindorj, I am so proud of you in obtaining your schooling. Keep writing to me. I love hearing from you all. The foundation I have set up is raising funds for the orphanage in Darkhan and their vocational school. We can each continue to help even in very small ways.
