When I stopped in for a meal at the sole restaurant in the small village where I used to live, the owner would often sit at my table to chat for a few minutes. Sometimes, she would ask if I was Christian, and even my negative answer wouldn't stop her from continuing on about the bible, and how her family was the only Christian one in town. I could understand her desire to talk to a kindred spirit. But in larger cities and in villages across Mongolia, religion is increasingly becoming a subject of interest, as Mongolians in the wake of officially atheist communism feel out both their spiritual roots in Buddhism and Shamanism- most homes have small shrines to Buddhist deities- and explore new religions like Christianity.
