Mongolia. World factbook map, 2006
Mongolia is a highland on the continent of Asia, which used to belong to Russia
, but was shared in the 1950s by China
, Russia and the ex-People's Republic of Mongolia (also known as Mongolia or Mongol Uls). In Inner Mongolia, the smaller southern division of the country, the Krimmer Mennonite Brethren
of America opened a mission in the city of Chotzeshan (Cho-tzushan or Zhuozishan), about 250 miles (400 km) north of Peking, with several subsidiary stations. Buildings were erected for evangelization, school, and hospital. The inhabitants of the city and the district showed a wish for the Gospel and participated actively in the services. The establishment of the Communist regime in China in 1950 put an end to the mission.
