When gold and copper deposits were found in the Gobi Desert, the Mongolian government made deals with various mining companies that threatened to take land away from the traditional herding communities that were occupying the land. Recently, a group of herders won a landmark court case against mine owners. The four-year long battle ended with a tripartite settlement between the mining companies, the local town and the herders to coexist on the land. Though mining is a huge multi billion dollar business that frequently seems untouchable, today we bless the mining companies in Mongolia with the conviction of the Holy Spirit to abide by the agreements made (The Bible, Revelation 3:15-17).
