Proclaiming the Good News in Bangladesh
Brothers Hilton & Daniel, our indigenous mission leaders in Bangladesh, update below.

Praise the Lord, I am giving a warm welcome to all brethren of Christ. We are praising Almighty God for His blessing in our life and ministry. He chooses us for His Heavenly work. And also thankful to our all brethren who are praying for and supporting us through GMFC.
I went to our GMFC Christian school and spent some time with children. We taught them Christian songs. You know, most of students of our school are Hindus so we teach them the Gospel, about Jesus Christ and Bible story to them through songs. We can’t preach Gospel directly to them so we use wisdom from above to get them the Truth. That’s why we are using songs and Bible story to preach the Gospel. Our school teachers are in busy time because the final exam is knocking at the door. They are also visiting homes and collecting new students for next semester which starts in January. We are praying for the students as we minister to them the True God and as they learn true education in childhood. Please pray for the GMFC School in Bangladesh, the students and also teachers. Pray we can continue to admitted new students, teach about Jesus Christ and Bible story to the students and run the school safe and sound through the grace of Jesus Christ.
We are always praying our mission fields, sponsored children, widows and their families. We are preaching Gospel to them and visiting their homes. Besides our mission fields and church member’s house, we are preaching Gospel to other homes too. You know, our mission fields are in remote areas, in remote villages. They are very poor and their houses are broken. Winter season is upon us and the village side is very cold. Another important matter is that they are suffering from various diseases by mosquitos, especially children, widows and old people who are passing bad conditions by cold and mosquito. We are praying that we can give some blankets and mosquito nets in our mission fields this coming month.
Our New Mission Field
Pastor Tapon is working in two mission fields, Tala and Satkhira. He is working very hard for God. Basically, he is breaking “hard ground” as most of them are Hindu and Muslim but they are coming to Christ, one by one. He is preaching the Gospel to them diligently. He recently discovered a new mission field. This new field is very remote area, about 20 kilometers from Tala, his home base. This area is named Olladanga in Satkhira. There are about 20 families in this area. Most of the families are Hindu. Pastor Tapon visited some families and talked with them. At first, he selected 10 families to preach Gospel to because these families were interested to hear Gospel and gave him a chance to preach Gospel over there. You know all people are not the same, some people are very aggressive in that area and they don’t like to hear Gospel. So, Pastor Tapon preached Gospel these 10 families who were more than willing to hear first. They gave him a place to worship and praise True God. They gathered together in a corridor with about 10 children, 7 widows, and 15 Young among these 10 families. They are very, very poor. They are leading a worldly life void of Christ. They are worshiping an idol god. We believe that God has chosen Pastor Tapon and led him to that area to preach Gospel. We are praying that one day, these people will understand the Gospel and take Jesus Christ in their lives as a Redeemer. Pastor Tarpon will continue to preach there as long as they will listen. We shall rejoice when some come to Jesus!
Please pray for our mission fields and sponsored children and widows. Especially pray our pastor and church so we can continue to preach the Gospel to other people that they can know the Truth of Jesus Christ and can change from their worldly life.
We have some immediate needs like Bibles and song books for the Tala Church and the new field and some blankets and mosquito nets for our all mission fields. Below I am giving how much we have need those things.
Bible 30 ps
Song books 30 ps
Blanket 200 ps (for children, widows, and church members families)
Mosquito net 100 ps (for children, widows)
God bless you. Brother HIlton Biswas (GMFC)

Praise the Lord,
We are greeting all brethren from Bangladesh. We are given thanks to our Almighty Lord. He gives us strength and courage and we hide God’s Word in our heart to do His work. We are thankful to our all brethren because they praying for us.
Today we ( Dyaniel and Samir ) went to Ullodunga village. This is a new field of our mission where we visited today. We are very glad to visit that area. Today we went there to worship Jesus with them and they were waiting for us. We went with Pastor Tapon and Netai. Pastor Tapon started worship with prayer, then we taught them a religious song. After the song, I preached to them on the Bible from The Book of John, verses 3:16 -20. Today I was surprised when they sang a song and gave answers. Some of them know very much about Bible even though they live in remote area. It’s really great! We finished with prayer and gave them some food while we spoke with them. They were very happy. We took some pictures of the children and widows. Today, 20 children, 4 widows, and some young and other people were present, total of about 50 people. T conclude this fruitful mission, we went to visit a house to see a old widow who is to sick and too weak to walk. She lost her one leg in an accident. We prayed for her then returned to Khulna.
Please pray for them, especially pray for that old widow and children. They are very poor. We visited their houses and they are broken with leaks, etc. Please pray we start a blessed fellowship here. God bless. -Brother Daniel Biswas
