Below is the testimony from our head teacher and missionary in Bangladesh.
Praise the lord,
I am Shamir Dey. I was born on April 1, 1993. I have one elder brother and one younger sister. My father is a cook and my mother is a housewife. I study in management department at final year 2018.
When I was born the family condition was not well. We had a big family and lived in the Barisal district. We had six members in our family but my father was the only one who was able to earn money. His income was not sufficient to fulfill all the needs of our family but my father and mother managed it, roughly. It was very difficult for him to continue our education.
At that time, I got an opportunity to run my education through an organization in Khulna so I got a hostel facility and my education and hostel facility was free, praise the Lord. I came in Khulna with my mother and stayed in a hostel. My mother worked in house as a maid to help pay for food and such. After few months, my older brother also got a chance to study with a grant as did my younger sister got through the same organization. We were desperate situation and living in different place but God made a way, praise Him. He had a great plan in our family. Fortunately, my father got a job as a cook with that organization who we were providing our education. It was blessing of God in our family. We were living together in Khulna at that time.
I continued my education with that organization and I gradually grew up in a Christian environment. When I was 16, I took Jesus Christ as my savior in my life through a religious meeting and got baptized in 2009. I always remember a Bible verse. Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” I believe God knows everything I need and my problems and He will fulfill all needs because I first seek the kingdom of God. After I finished school I decided to work for God full time.
When I got a chance through Brother Hilton, God sent him to me for His work and I agreed. I joined as a teacher at the GMFC Christian School where I teach and preach to the children. Rest of the time, I work as a volunteer for GMFC. Brother Hilton teaches me how to live holy and perfect as the bible commands. Now I obey God. Sometimes I work in our church and other times I go on outreaches and preach the gospel while ministering to the poor, the orphan and the widow. I attained many religious programs. I believe God chooses me for Heavenly work. That is why I am working this ministry.
Right now I and my family are well by the grace of God. Pray for me I can work for God to the end of my life. -Shamir
