I came from a Christian family. While I was in Barishal I went to SS, but in Rajbari the church didn’t have SS. Our family had daily prayer time and regular Scripture memory. I knew all about Christ, His sacrifice, and His blessings.
When I was 13, I knew a lot, but did not know how salvation related to eternal life. April 1, 1999, I heard my cousin was going to get baptized, so I was suddenly interested in baptism. I asked her why she was doing it. “I believe in Jesus Christ. I love Him. He is my Savior. That is why.” I felt the same way, so I wanted to be baptized as well. I asked my father if I could. He said you have to get salvation first. Then I ran to my mother to find out what is salvation. My mother said, “Those who are saved stop sinning.” I realized that I was continuing in sin, so I didn’t have salvation yet. I felt sad and fearful in my heart because without salvation I would not get to be with my sister and mom and dad in heaven. I didn’t know exactly what to do or who to ask to fix this. I did not want to admit my sin of lying to my parents because they thought I was so obedient. I was heartbroken about my eternity.
One night I was reading the Bible late at night and suddenly saw Romans 4:5, which says, “However, to the man who does not work, but trusts God who justifies the wicked, his faith is credited as righteousness.” So, I realized that I believed in Jesus. He sacrificed his life just because of me. His death and resurrection were my death and resurrection. I just needed a sign that it was for me. I found Isaiah 43:1.
But now thus says the Lord,
he who created you, O Jacob,
he who formed you, O Israel:
Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name, you are mine.
I heard God, my Father calling me in that verse.
I still hear Him calling me and I am serving Him to this day.

Ministry: This month we arranged a whole-month online training program with new staff under Satish Soren and Sanjoy Biswas’s leading, and other coordinators are teaching different subjects every day.

Please pray for these new staff that God may give them His wisdom for better learning and understanding so they will be able to use these teachings in the field properly.

February 26, 2020–I am having some problem concentrating and when I do concentrate I get headaches. Some peace in my heart is needed. I have heavy responsibilities which bring tension. Pray for Glory who missed two months of school during our big ministry season, that she can catch up without too much pressure. It will help if she doesn’t catch cold, which will set her back even more. Also we need wisdom to give her time and attention to meet her emotional needs and understand how much God loves her and how to live in a way that pleases God.
My goal for 2019 that I set forth in 2017 was to have our BMW families in good relationship with each other. One family was imbalanced and the wife was sick and discouraged. That family is happier and healthier now. One new couple that has heavy responsibilities I am concerned about. I want everyone to pray for them. Orville and Shampa and Regan and Happy are off to a good start. Now two brand new couples married in December and February: Nipol and Lima, Milton and Momena. If husband and wife fight with each other, then the ministry will suffer. If they have a good relationship, they will be happy and productive. I try to minister to the wives and pray for them.
We are concerned for Rimi and Premanondo who are marriagable, but not finding a mate. May they see God’s plan and not react to the pressure of the family or community.
In 2020 I am training three people to do BMW accounting in their areas: New employee Anik at the home office; Swapna at Gopalganj; Happy in Khulna. The more successful I am in this, the more I will be able to focus on HR issues. We just brought back Samiron and Mrinal into BMW who had to leave BMW in the past. We believe God is giving them a new start. Pray that in their probationary period they can show changed hearts so they can become full-time workers again.
