Saturday, January 8 – Bangladesh
A tribal villager recently put his faith in Christ after attending a local missionary’s seminar. Workers are visiting homes with the gospel in several areas; in one of the hill districts, a 37-year-old alcoholic who had violently opposed the faith of his Christian relatives and neighbors overheard a preacher quoting Scripture against the worship of false nature gods and asked the local missionary to explain. He went on to study the Bible with him for weeks afterward, left his addictions and put his faith in Christ. Workers need donations of $25 or $50 in order to proclaim Christ and cultivate strong disciples. They request prayer for new believers facing opposition from criminals and militias.
