The Nets Are Filling up in Bangladesh
God’s loves to all brethren. 1 Timothy 1:12 “I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me faithful, appointing me to his service.” We are very thankful to our Living God Jesus Christ who and blesses us for His Holy and Royal Work. He reaches out His hand and touches us through GMFC for spreading the gospel in Bangladesh so that people can get salvation. This is a great privilege for us through GMFC here in Bangladesh. We are proclaiming God’s word to people all over. With the grace and power of God, we are spreading God’s Kingdom in various parts of Bangladesh; especially Khulna, Satkhira, Tala and Jessore districts. We have three pastors who are working in these areas. Pastor Tapon Sarker who is working at Machira Church in Tala as well as Satkhira. Pastor Aupo Das who is working in Jessore. He has two fields he is serving there, and Brother Nemai Das who is working at Ulludanga Church. We have other programs including our Christian School in Botiaghata, child & widow sponsorships, etc.
We have one modest Church in Tala, Machira that meets in a small building we built for them. The other mission fields worship in open space or house corridors. We gave baptism in two fields recently. According to Bible, Acts 2:38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” It is really a great blessing as God has worked in their heart. They repented, confessed and forsook their sin and got baptized in Jesus Name. We gave Baptism to 50 people this past year. In Machira Church, we baptized 25 people. In Ulludanga Church, we Baptized 20 people. More are ready to be Baptized but we are making sure they are truly ready and are teaching and preparing them through the Gospel. Once we are sure they have truly repented and are ready to follow Jesus forsaking all else in the world, we will baptize them in the name of Jesus Christ.
We are glad to proclaim that people who became born again into Christ and have clothed themselves with Christ are baptized and now they are the members of the Church. We have one church house in Machiara but the other fields we don’t have any Church house. The Ulludanga field is in great need of a modest church meeting house so we are praying to get it funded. There we meet together in an open space or other house corridor for church service but sometimes we face problem by house owner or other people and also by weather, especially rainy season. We need a Church meeting house for these believers where they can sit together and praise God. Join us in prayer and help financially if you can.
We took a piece of land in Tala field for three years agreement, where we established a Church House. There we can run our Church service for three years. Then we have to leave this land and Church. We have to think again for this Church because we will have more believers in three years. But we don’t want this at Ulludanga field. We are praying to establish a permanent Working Faith Fellowship Church house at Ulludanga field. We are praying for a good piece of land for Church where we can make a church house for these believers. The pastor and elders will take care of the saints as they teach the gospel to them while his wife will serve the Sunday school and teach little children (train them up in the Lord). This is our prayer but we are depending on God and His plan for Bangladesh. I request; please pray for Ulludanga Church and their new members and family. God bless. -Bro Hilton Biswas
