My name is Prodip Sarker from the Gopalgonj area. My father Anondo Sarker is a businessman, and my mother Lipika Sarker takes care of the home. I am the eldest of one brother and one sister. We are a Christian family. Even though I am from a Christian family I did have a big failure in my life. The failure was I had a big involvement with an evil company. I had lots of bad habits in my life like stealing, lying, and many other evil deeds. That was a dark period of my life. I lost the truth from my life and Satan became my close friend.
In 2012 my Pastor, Timothy Sikder, started counselling me. In the beginning of my conciliation, I took it as a silly matter. But the Holy Spirit inspired me to study the Bible and get involved with God. Day by day I came to realize my life was dark and I started to learn about God’s love in my life. My pastor offered me to help me go to a Bible School and I received that offer. In 2014 I completed my Bible school with Discipleship Training School (DTS). I learned the reason of salvation for my life. I started to feel that I was overcoming the darkness. When I read 2 Corinthians 5:17, I decided to leave my dark life and start a new life with Christ. I have received the test of salvation. I decided to take baptism after that and on January 3, 2015 I was baptized. Now, I have the assurance that I will never die for my sin because Jesus took my sin away on the cross. Later, I made a goal for my life that I will never leave Him or forsake Him, and I will serve Him in my entire life.

May 30, 2021–Please give thanks to the Lord that he has given me the opportunity to work as an evangelist in the Sreemangal area. I am blessed to join the staff training meeting with brother Matthew Roy. I have come to learn a lot of things through this training.

My desire is to visit 100 families and share the gospel with them and invite at least 15 people to the church every Sunday.

Please pray for me so that I can build a good relationship with everyone and stay faithful in my work. My parents live in Gopalgonj and I am far away from my home. May God keep them safe in this lockdown period.
I have a special prayer request for my sister. My sister’s relationship with her husband is not going very well. My brother-in-law doesn’t treat her properly. Please pray for him so that God will help him change his mind toward my sister. Keep me in your prayer as I am a new staff, and I am developing myself spiritually. May God be with me.
