Dave’s June work report
Report can be found as Attachment A.
Esther’s June work report
In addition to routine tasks, Esther has prepared materials for ATOB. She is starting to do her PT on her own now and hopes for continued progress as she has noticed strength coming back to her broken arm.
Thomas Roy’s June work report
Thomas logged 160 hours for BMW. 4+4+4+4=16 hours teaching online with 2 disciples in Canada who show growth and we will visit at end of July. 6+6+6+3=21 hours studying the Bible Training Center for Pastors material to teach BMW staff. 21+23+24+24=92 hours directly teaching our Bangladesh staff. 5+6+6+5=22 hours translating and preparing materials in Bangla for our BD ministry. 3 hours in the Navigators Discipleship study. 2+4=6 hours in teamwork (fundraising, mailing, prayer mtg).
Matthew’s June work report
Matthew logged 76+66.5+65+85=292.5 hours for BMW (including travel time and seminary classes and study). He took NO days off the entire month. His job is never done and he has a tendency to overwork, but we will have a firm plan for corrective action by next month. The majority of Matthew’s effort is in staff development, training and coordination. He is effectively duplicating himself. Here is the end-of-June student count.
12 out of 12 attendees (8 Hindu) accepted Christ as Savior and Lord at our “harvesting camp” in Sreemongol on June 8 as Matthew gave the invitation. Sanjoy has been meeting with them as a group for followup.
USA Team Bangladesh visit (January 6-20)
So far Bill, Thomas and Dave will be joined by Pastor Alyn Goossen of Immanuel Church of Holland and Dwight Jacobsen. A decision was made to make Thomas and Jennefer’s father into a fourth team to conduct two graduations. Matthew forgot to add the cost of the 2000 certificates and 2000 Bibles which will come to $8500. (He got most of the Bibles free last year and can’t be sure that will happen again.)
July 28-29 Thomas and I are speaking at a Bengali Christian retreat in Toronto.
August 26-28 Larry Golin, Swopan Malakar and I are going to TWR in North Carolina
September 26-27 Thomas and I are going to Bible Training Center for Pastors in Atlanta.
