Ulgii...Our home town.
Our story starts in Russia and continues here in Ulgii...
We found ourselves in Russia making friends and viewing God's beautiful creation when we decided to visit Ulgii on this side of the border in Mongolia. We heard about the famed eagle hunters and the winter hunts in which they use golden eagles to hunt fox and wolf. Last February, we came for a visit. Last July, we came to live.
Taylor journeyed ahead of the family in July and the children and Elizabeth joined him in October after a time of rest in Croatia.
Now we are planted here and doing the business God gave us 12 years ago in Arkansas. Who knew that the first wooden bathtub in 2003 would be continued here on the other side of the world in Western Mongolia? We consider it our privilege to live and work among the people of Bayan Ulgii. They have welcomed us in all our "big family" ways and been very kind to us.
Now we intend to affect our community the way new creations should. Please pay attention to our free trade practices, our use of native materials, and our employment of native artisans for the work. We bless you in the name Jesus and hope you love our products.
