I was born into a Christian family, but I got involved in a lot of sin as a young person, including many kinds of drugs. I felt badly about it and tried to clean it up. I would confess my sins and promise God that I would live holy. My efforts to forsake my sin never lasted more than one or two days. Then my older sister Rimi gave me the opportunity to attend BMW leadership camp in February of 2016. She had recently started serving God in BMW and could not get free from a previous obligation to attend the camp. So, she told me to go in her place. It was about a 20 hour journey, which gave me time to anticipate what these four days would be all about.
Matthew Roy met me at the gate and shook my hand. I was immediately impressed that this place was holy ground. God was in this place and there was no way I was going to consume drugs in this holy place. I brought plenty of drugs, but the fear of God on me told me it was out of the question. I would have to go off-campus to consume any drugs.
The first night of camp there was a message about salvation and I knew that if I didn’t get salvation I would be going straight to hell. It was clear to me that I was a sinner.
The next day I talked with David DeCook. “I have sinned many times and repented many times, but I keep falling back into the same sins!” I explained. He said, “Read John 1:12. It tells how to become God’s child. Once you become God’s child, you can never be the same again. You are a new person, you have the Holy Spirit and you will never be rejected by God, even if you do drugs.” I went to my room and pondered John 1:12.
The next day I spoke with Uncle David again. “If I become a child of God, what should I do about drugs after that?” He gave me I Corinthians 6:19-20. He explained that staying free from drugs does not gain me salvation and does not keep me saved. But salvation means that I have a new owner. I am not my own anymore. I belong to God. I should keep free from drugs because my body is the temple of the Holy Spirit and I want to glorify God with my body.
The final day of camp there was a special message about choosing to follow Christ and a time of invitation for anyone who felt ready to count the cost and follow Christ. I came forward at the invitation and poured out my heart in repentance and faith and commitment to God. I totally broke free from the old life that I had been living.
I have been serving God as an evangelist for the last three years, but have faced many hardships. I have had a serious case of hepatitis. I had an accident with a bus that broke my femur. I am still suffering from these things. But I have thanked God for staying with me and using me and giving me the opportunity to serve him. In addition, there is constant financial pressure on our family with only Rimi and me to provide. Pray that I will continue to persevere through God’s strength! Mridul Biswas.

Then I asked, “Do you know about our salvation?” She said no. I explained clearly about Christianity and about our salvation through Romans 3:23 and 6:23. After that she understood about that and also I shared John 3:16, 1 John 5:11-13 and Genesis 2:17. I asked, “Do you believe Jesus is our savior? Do you want to accept Him in your life?” She said yes. She confessed her sin and accepted Jesus Christ in her life as her savior.
June 23, 2020–Sri Sobuj (age 48) has diabetes and for this reason he must walk everyday. Often I am trying to join with him for walking. During one of our walking times, I said to him, suppose your diabetes level suddenly grows high and somehow you are infected by COVID-19 and you will die. Where will go after your death? He answered, he will go heaven because he is not doing any bad works. Then I asked how are you sure about that. Is anything written in your religious book of assurance of that? I shared Acts 4:12 and explained it clearly and he agreed with me that Jesus is the only way to go heaven. He wants to know more about Jesus.
June 18, 2020–I asked Sri Sajeeb (age 15) do you know Jesus? Do you know about salvation? He answered that, through BMW course I know about Jesus a little bit but don’t know about salvation. I shared with him 1 John 5:11-13, and through explanation he got to know that only Jesus can give eternal life. I asked him do you have anything about salvation in your religion? He said, “as per I know there is nothing about salvation, our beliefs are based on good deeds.” Once again I shared Acts 4:12 and explained it. After that he got a clearer concept about salvation. Please pray for him so that one day we can celebrate his salvation.
June 14, 2020–Pranto (age 22) believes that he will go to heaven because he is a Christian. I asked him, do you have assurance of salvation? Do you know about being born in Christ? He was worried about being born in Christ again and asked me how he can born again? Then I shared John 3:3, Romans 10: 9-10, John 5:24 and 1 John 5:11-13. After sharing all theses things, he understood that he must accept Jesus Christ as his savior by mouth and from heart. He accepted Him in his life for eternal life.
June 14, 2020–Sri Santo (age 24) knows Jesus is an ideal person and he loves Jesus’ life and His teaching. That’s why he joined BMW as a student to know more about Jesus. Now he is a student of the Bible course. I asked him, do you know about salvation? He said, “our religion book Gita has nothing written about salvation.” Then I shared Acts 4:12 and 1 John 5:11-13 with him and tried to give a clear idea of salvation. After that he told me he wants to know about Jesus. I told him through the BMW course you will know more about Jesus. He replied that he will read fully the course book. He will be very careful and attentive.
June 14, 2020–Ratna (age 35) was born into a Hindu family but married a Christian. I asked her do you have assurance of salvation? She said when I married a Christian person I began following all the Christian laws but I am not sure about salvation. Then I shared Romans 10:9-10, and Acts 4:12 with her. She understands that Jesus is our savior who can give us salvation and He is the only way and through Him we will get the access in Heaven.
June 7. 2020–Moyna (age 17) As a Christian, Moyna has so many questions about the Bible like about Cain and Abel. They were brothers but how is their generation growing up. Then I shared about Adam’s generation step by step and asked her did you see anywhere mentioned any female name. She said no. I gave her the answer, and she was convinced by the answer. Then I asked do you know why Jesus came to this earth, she said, “I heard but it is not clear to me.” I shared the Bridge illustration with her through Romans 6:23. She got to understand why Jesus came and accepted him as a personal savior by mouth and heart.
June 2, 2020–Tonny (age 18) was born into a Christian family. She believes that she is a Christian and she got salvation when born. I asked her what the Bible says about being born again. Do you know? She said no. I shared John 3:3 after that and she was asking how I can be born again? I suggested she read John chapter 3. You will get to know how you can be born again. Through accepting Jesus Christ you can be born again and get assurance of salvation. She accepted Jesus Christ in her life.
May 18, 2020–Asha Das, a Hindu, age 19, was born in a Hindu family, but she was married to a Christian family. So she tells everyone that she is Christian now. So, I asked her once that if she had salvation through Jesus. She was confused about it. Then I explained Romans 10:9-10 and John 5:24 to her. After that she realized the importance of being assured about salvation. God bless her.
May 15, 2020–Toma, age 15, thinks that as she was born into a Christian family and as she know about Jesus so she is going to heaven. I asked her if she has got the assurance of salvation. But she said no. Then I explained about the assurance of salvation in the light of John 5:24 & Romans 10:9-10. Then she understood that salvation is not an easy thing. I adviced her to meditate on these verses. She told me that she would do that.
April 22, 2020–Pray for me as I am feeling sad because for more than one month I am stuck at home, and can’t go out for evangelism. I am doing some evangelism work through Facebook messenger. I have some Muslim friends with whom I shared the gospel. Mahid Islam is one of them. He asked prayer for his father who is physically disabled. There are 6 members in his family. Nahid is the elder son of the family and he is the only earning person. But now he doesn’t have any job. And they are suffering from a financial crisis. They are going through a hard time.
I am also continuing my discipleship. Now I am discipling two of my disciples. They are Linkon Biswas and Sojib Biswas. I was teaching them about love and forgiveness from the passage of Luke 23:34. I hope they got a clear idea about love and forgiveness. I request you to pray for them so they can show Christ’s love and forgiveness to others. And pray many people will know about Christ’s love and how He forgave us.
One of my students Asit Das asked for prayer for his father. His father has been sick for a long time, suffering from a strong gastric. They went to the hospital but didn’t get any treatment because the hospital wouldn’t receive them. So, please pray for Asit’s father so that he may realize that the healing comes from God. And he can rely on God rather than relying on doctors and hospitals.
This month I was able to reach 125 students over the phone. All of them are depressed because of the current crisis. So, I tried to comfort them through the scripture and encourage them to continue their Bible course. Most of them are doing their course work but some of them are not very active. So, please pray for those who are losing their enthusiasm and interests on Bible study.
February 13, 2020–Pray that I can distribute at least 200 more tract in February and in the month of March 500 tracts and talk to 25 people personally about the Gospel.

We have shared the Gospel with him.
My father used to attend a Christian conference, but has been sick for three years. Today he has rejoined that event because of God’s gift of health. Praise the Lord!
On our visit to Cox’s Bazar I got to share tracts and talk to Md. Nazim Uddin, Ashraf, Jahid. Pray God will work in the hearts of these Muslims! They did not think well of Jesus. I shared some of the Bridge and they started to understand. They think that becoming Christian is a way to get money.

November 16, 2019–Laxman, age 30, thinks people convert to Christianity because of money. I explained to him it is not and shared him John 1:12 and 3:16. After my sharing, he understood Jesus alone is the redeemer, and through him people can taste the salvation only.
November 16, 2019–Salim, age 26, was taught that Jesus is an ordinary people like others. I told him the birth of Jesus Christ was planned by God before the beginning of the world according to Isaih 7:14. Salim came to know Jesus is very unique. Then I presented the Bridge Illustration and he realized that Jesus can forgive and give the salvation.
November 11,2019–Nahid, age 22, did not believe he was sinner by birth. He thought he was pure from his childhood. Then I presented the Bridge illustration with the verse of Romans 6:23. After my sharing, he understood that he is sinner, and he knew that by only Jesus can he be forgiven.
November 8, 2019–I have shared the Gospel with two Madrasa Students Md. Zahid Hasan and Shaheen Islam. They enjoyed the bridge illustration that I shared with them from Romans 6:23. They became interested to know more about Christ Jesus because they have all the opposite information about Christ Jesus. They also showed their interest to attend in our Church but our Church is not allowing them to come as the Church committee is taking them as suspicious. The Church is a little fearful about them. So, please pray for me so that I can help them more and also pray for them so that they will come to know the truth.
Last month I got to share the Gospel with another 8 Muslim guys through bridge illustration. Pray for them so that their soul will be saved. Pray for the md Ashraful,He expressed interest in knowing more about Jesus after Bridges Illustration.Pray for my disciples sajib baroi and linkon Biswas i gave them 5 assurances, Let them be perfected through this teaching. I have total 117 students to whom I have been giving guidance. I am preparing 95 students for graduation. Pray so that I may manage everything. I give thanks to Sri Shakil Das that God has saved him from such dangerous diseases like brain infection and urine infection. He and his family could understand the mercy of God and even gave a thanksgiving meeting and invited many believers to join the meeting. May God bless us in this way among Hindus and Muslims. May God be exalted through them. I have shared the gospel to 29 people in October. Pray for those souls so that they feel the warmth of God’s word in their hearts. Pray for me so that I can share the gospel to 40 people in this month and follow up to about 15 people to win their hearts for Christ. Amen!

November 7, 2019–Ujjal, age 28, told me he would get rid of sin by worshiping the idols. I asked him who was God. He was confused. Then I told him about Jesus and salvation. So he understood no one but Jesus Himself can give him salvation. Afterwards I showed him more from Acts 4:12 and at the end he confessed, “yes now I understand and believe actually who is Jesus.” Praise the Lord! Please pray for him.
November 5, 2019–Easin, age 27, of Jessore, does not know who Jesus is so I explained John 3:16 and said that Jesus is a gift from Allah men can have. Then I shared more about Jesus that he is the way of salvation for mankind. Easin understood what I said. It seems he wants to know more about Christ. Please pray for Easin.
October 30, 2019–Md Mahbub (age 25) was asked about Jesus; if he knew something about him. He replied that Isha Messiah is a prophet sent by Allah to them.

He admitted that he didn’t know much about Him and he wanted to know more.
October 29, 2019–When I asked Shakil (age 32) what sin was to him, he thinks that doing evil things are sin. He didn’t have any idea about being sinner by birth. So I shared Bridge illustration with him and then he understoodt he is a sinner. I told him that if he wanted to have salvation, he had to confess his sins to Jesus. He didn’t reply anything. I pray for his mind.

I pray God will help him have enough courage to accept Jesus in his heart.
October 23, 2019–When Tanvir Islam (age 26) was asked about salvation from their belief, he replied in the negative that he didn’t know. Then I explained about it from John 5: 11-13. Then he could understand the meaning of salvation. He expressed to know more about Jesus.
October 21, 2019–Sree Ripon (age 36) has enough doubt that Settle and wealth can remain in heaven. Because he believes that he will return to the world again in accordance with rebirth; their rules. Then I asked him how we could go to heaven or how you know you could go to heaven. He didn’t reply anything because he didn’t believe after death we have eternal life in heaven. He knew he would be punished for his sins, but he did not know there is a guarantee that he would be saved from this earth and we can get eternal life there. I shared with him John 3:16 and 1st John 5:11-13 that only Jesus can give us eternal life if we believe him and confess to Him all of our sins. Only way is the truth –JESUS CHRIST. I also explained Acts 4:12, which says “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” He did not agree with me because he doesn’t believe that Christ is the only way to save us from our sin.

October 3, 2019–Firstly I told Sahidul (age 26) I’m a Christian boy, then he asked me about Isa Moshe and how He was born miraculous. I told him from the Bible (Isaiah 7:14) that says a sign; The virgin will conceive…will call Him Immanuel. This was a prophecy, with these topics I told him what reason Isa Moshe came. Then he told me he believes Christ was born as miraculous, but he doesn’t believe Christ is a son of God. I explained the Bridge illustration (Romans 6:23) and then he told me that about Muhammad. I give him some tracts to read and know more next.
October 3, 2019–Every man is innocent by birth thinks Md Shihab. He doesn’t accept that everyone is sinful at birth. I told him we are all sinners by birth and I told him about Adam and Eve. After that I explained Romans 3:26 and 6:23. Through this explaination and conversation, he came to know we are all sinners when born (how sin originated and the separation of peoples from God/Allah as result of sin.) At last when I asked him “what’s your opinion now about sin?” He was silent because of the time limitation in the bus and I couldn’t continue for this reason.

But the chairman of the Hindu Council in Jessore, Mohit Kumar gave him and his family many threats and created many difficulties at that time. But he decided to stay in Christ in secret.

September 14, 2019–Ziaur (age 26) doesn’t know about Jesus but he has heard about Isha Messiah from here and there. I shared from Isaiah 7:14 and Romans 6:23 about the prophecy of Jesus’ birth. He was amazed to hear all that. He wanted to know more about Jesus next time.
September 10, 2019–Ikbal, age 30, said he does not have the assurance of salvation.

September 7, 2019–Most of the people at Konejpur know about Jesus a bit. I ask these: Sakil, Tapos, Chanchal, and Pobitro (ages 20, 26, 25, 24) do you know why Jesus came to this world. They said did not know but they confessed Jesus had miraculous power. Please pray for them.

I like to praise God that He provided me the financial support through BMW Mercy fund that I was required for the surgery. Because for the financial reason I had to wait for this surgery. God willing, now I would be able to reach more unbeliever with the good news of God. Pray for my quick recovery and for any complication of the post surgery.

Now, I am so thankful to God that He provided me with financial support through BMW Mercy Fund to get done with the operation of my leg. Dr Mossharaf Hossain is observing my X-Ray report and most probably within a few days, he will go for the surgery. I didn’t get any final date from him yet.

Pray for me as I am evangelizing to the unbelievers, especially to Hindu and Muslim people and the wisdom and knowledge on scripture, pray so that whenever I shared the gospel to others Holy Spirit would guide me, direct me. In this month, I got to share Bridge illustration to three Muslim guys who didn’t know anything about Christianity. Their names are Md. Ahsan Habib, Nuruddin Islam and Belal Rahaman.

March 25, 2019–Please pray for those people among whom I shared Bridge illustration don’t believe that Jesus is the way of Salvation and died for us. They believe that Jesus didn’t die and He didn’t resurrect from death. I gave them Injil Sarif (New Testament Bible), so, pray that they will read it and learn that what Christ Jesus has done for all of us. Pray for me as I can give them Word of God properly and they can understand God’s love. There are many people to whom when I share about Jesus they want to become Christian for getting good job. They don’t want to accept Jesus they just want job. Please pray for those people that they can understand the different between worldly needs and spiritual needs.
March 25, 2019–Please pray for me because I am a little sick due to the change of season I am suffering from cold.
