Expanding Into Bangladesh

February 16, 2018

Dear Partners in Ministry,

The Year of the Dog:

We are in the middle of Chinese New Year as I write these words. It is difficult to explain how important this holiday is in the world’s most populous country. It is like New Years, Christmas, Independence Day, Thanksgiving and the Super Bowl all wrapped up in one giant celebration that lasts 2 weeks.

According to Forbes it is “largest human migration in the world as hundreds of millions of people head home for the holidays.” My wife and I live in the 3rd largest city in China, and we use public transportation, so we see first hand some of those hundreds of millions of people.

Please pray for China. You may have heard that new religious restrictions began to be enforced this month. There are many stories already of how God’s people are being affected. Persecution for the faith is not uncommon in this part of the world and we know that God’s grace is sufficient, but we have the privilege of “helping together by prayer for us.” 2 Cor. 1:11
Barnabas1040 Enters Our 12th Country:
In December I wrote you that we had begun supporting several national church planting pastors in Pakistan.
 
 
This month I am happy to announce that in January we were able to take on two new ministries in Bangladesh. These ministries are bringing the gospel to several villages as well as major cities. Our support enables them to send out new church planters into villages that are still waiting to hear the good news of Jesus.
 
 
This makes 12 different countries in the least engaged part of the earth where we are being allowed, by the grace of God, to help shine the light.
The places we go have anywhere from 2 – 5 % of their populations that profess faith in Christ. These are truly some of the neediest and most difficult places in the world.
Thank you for helping us help them. I know that we could not do this ministry without the prayers and financial support of those who stand with us in this endeavor.
 
Prayer Requests:
  • Please pray for the things that are happening in China right now: that the end result will be the furtherance of the Gospel and the edifying of God’s people
  • Please pray for wisdom as we are in the process of vetting new opportunities in India and Myanmar.
  • Please pray for several meetings I am scheduled to participate in the next few months in Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines and Australia. Pray that God will give me His power as I speak, and wisdom as we seek those we should partner with in spreading the gospel among their own people.
We love you and we thank you for your prayers, encouragement and support!
Your Partners in the Gospel,
