George and his family lived in Mongolia for ten years where he was an international relief worker and community development leader.  Their work included building a school and clinic which all ultimately became Mongolian-led.

He was also appointed as Special Counsel to the Selenge Province (Mongolia) Education Board and helped with pedagogy and curriculum development for the province.
