About half of them will be returning home, their missions having come to a close. The other half have been assigned to other missions for the remainder of their mission service. They had mixed feelings, wishing they could remain in Mongolia, but happy to be a serve somewhere. The half reassigned were those we had come to know while in the Provo MTC. Before all of the troubles hit, we had thought we might be traveling home with them in August.
The video is of those missionaries singing "Called To Serve" in Mongolia while also signing the song using Mongolian sign language. Most learn to sign while here, as well, due to the large numbers of deaf people there are.
Not many foreign missionaries left here, now. We did hear, however, that there will be 4 new Americans coming in July or August. That would be the first new foreign missionaries in a very long time.
