VET Net in Mongolia
American missionary couple, Gerald and Frances Mitchum, started up a Veterinary and Education Training network (VET Net) in 1995 in Mongolia.
VET Net provides veterinary training and primary school education in some of the remotest areas of the country. Veterinary training helps sustain the herders’ way of life by encouraging good standards of veterinary care, not least to help their livestock to survive the long, harsh Mongolian winters. David Welchman from St Barnabas first visited Mongolia in 2002. Since then he has returned on a regular basis, staying for two weeks each time.
In providing for veterinary and educational needs in Mongolia, VET Net is modelling Christ’s way of life in practical ways. Resources are limited and there are enormous distances to cover. VET Net also seeks to bring that same Good News to people in the remote areas of Mongolia. There are extraordinary stories of peoples’ lives, and sometimes whole communities, being transformed as a result.
We regularly support this project both through prayer and financial giving
