V.E.T. Net – An Overview
Some time ago, the son of a retired veterinarian who lives in a U.S. facility supported by V.E.T. Net’s umbrella organization, CRISTA, was touring a remote area of the Gobi Desert during a visit to Mongolia. While there, he struck up a conversation with a man who turned out to be a Christian. When he asked the man how he became a Christian, the man told him, “it was because of V.E.T. Net.“
2 Thessalonians 3:1: … pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored.
More About V.E.T. Net
V.E.T. Net is a non-profit, non-governmental organization headquartered in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. V.E.T. Net was established in order to improve veterinary support to Mongolian herdsmen, to enhance the well-being of remote herdsmen communities, and to observe the Scriptural mandate to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all nations (Matt. 28:19).
When V.E.T. Net veterinarians in Mongolia were allowed to privatize in 1999 – following the collapse of Soviet influence in the country – most veterinarians were in a desperate situation, unable to make a living. As V.E.T. Net trained the veterinarians and began the process of importing and distributing quality veterinary medicines, the veterinarians and their herder clients began to prosper. V.E.T Net is largely credited with having totally reformed the veterinary sector in Mongolia by making quality veterinary products available throughout the country, by introducing modern veterinary practices, and by providing ongoing training to rural veterinarians and herdsmen. In addition, V.E.T. Net projects are providing children with better educations and enabling many to pursue university degrees. Small churches are being born in communities visited by V.E.T. Net, village leaders are being discipled, and the poor throughout the country are being lifted from poverty.
V.E.T. Net became a non-profit, non-governmental organization in 2003 and is funded almost entirely by private donations. V.E.T. Net employs 16 national veterinarians full time and interacts with over 1000 veterinarians throughout the country. Christian Veterinary Mission (CVM) employs a small staff to provide advice and assistance.
