Church Planters in Remote Tribal Areas in Bangladesh Overcome Obstacles

Few nations present as many obstacles to sharing the Gospel as Bangladesh. For example, getting to the remote tribal areas in Bangladesh require traveling through long, winding, rough roads. Additionally, news of flooding and death in the lowlands is so common that it rarely affects people. Even this week, when writing this article, there are many reports across international news of death and destruction from flooding. Nevertheless, SOM Bangladesh workers forge ahead with courageous faith, completing their sixth class of church planters. In six different schools around the country, the leadership network continues to reach out and share Christ by

Bangladeshi Seamstress Expresses Great Joy and Thanksgiving

Touched by Jesus and the Power of the Gospel I was born into a Roman Catholic family, but I didn't know Jesus as my Savior. My husband is a church planter graduate from SOM Bangladesh.  In April 2020, my husband explained to me how I could learn about Jesus as my Savior. He also discussed that I am a sinner, and Jesus has taken my sin by dying on the cross for me.  He shared how, without Jesus, I can't go to heaven, but the gift of God is eternal life. Then I received Jesus Christ as my Savior; I

God’s Goats in Bangladesh Gain Ground

Often, the Image of the Goat Gets a Bad Rap If a player causes their team to lose a game, he is considered the “goat.” Jesus divides the sheep, and the goats in Matthew 25, referencing goats as evildoers. Why Use a Good Goat? To the church planting network in Bangladesh, the new gang of goats acquired has been a significant boost in more ways than one. In Leviticus 16:20-22, the Lord instructs Moses and Aaron to gather the “scapegoat” – a foreshadowing of Christ Himself—and confess the sins and iniquities of Israel over the head. Sent away was the

Sewing Discipleship Ministry Expanding in Bangladesh

Sewing Ministry is Growing In what has already been effective in India, the Sewing Discipleship ministry is now getting more established in Bangladesh. The women from six Lighthouse schools who completed training in June are taking the gospel into remote tribal areas. The women are equipped with the Word of God.

Faith Builds in the Forgotten at Bangladeshi Sewing School

Sewing Faith into Villagers  Testimony of Hope from Sewing/Discipleship School Student Because of knowing faith in the Lord as my Savior since my early teen years, I have faced severe persecution in my own home. My parents desired to undermine my faith and arrange a marriage to a Hindu man. For ten years, this man mistreated me. Sometimes after returning from a house church meeting, my husband would not allow me to eat food or share the same bedroom. He expressed much hatred towards me. His anger continued as he felt embarrassment over me not agreeing with the Hindu faith. He
