I am 27 years old. BMW has changed my life. My dad worked as Christian evangelist and I grew up in a church boys’ hostel. Even though we had devotions every day from the Bible, the teaching didn’t really sink in. I was a college student in 2012 and working for a local Compassion ministry when I heard about the BMW Bible studies. I enjoyed the Bible discussions so much. Step by step the BMW courses opened up my understanding of the Scriptures. The Bible began to make sense to me. I finally understood salvation and I began to see God at work in my life. Then I began to get a desire to serve God. I saw that the BMW system worked. I loved to discuss the Bible with young people and that is the main method BMW uses! I volunteered for every opportunity to lead BMW Bible study groups in several villages in my area. Because some things changed, I left BMW and served with another ministry for a couple years. But I found they did not have a good ministry system and they wanted me to fabricate ministry reports. After two years I could not stand it anymore and I begged Matthew Roy to let me serve in BMW again. Now I am nearing the end of my six month trial. Pray that I can serve well and become a permanent BMW staff! I am not doing it for the money. I am very happy in this ministry. I will never stop working for God!

May 26, 2020–I would like you to thank God as I am safe and free from all kinds of sickness. I am very happy that He is using me for His kingdom though I am not worthy of that. My ministry work is slower than usual because I can’t go for visiting groups and there is no network in tea garden areas. So, I am unable to reach them.
There are 4 groups close by my village. I am reaching them. This month I got to take 20 classes with those groups close by. They are making good progress with their course materials. I would like you to pray for some of my students. Around 30% of them are not showing strong interests about the Bible study even though they are Christian. They are not going to church or attending our BMW Bible class. So, please pray for them so that the Holy Spirit gives them conviction.
Last month my goal was to have 12 meetings with my disciples, but I got to take 8 classes with them. During my class time I taught them about 5 assurances. Pray that not all of them received 5 assurances yet. They still have some confusions and many questions. So, pray for me so that I can help them, guide them and answer all of their questions.The name of my disciples are Tony Biswas, Srabonti Biswas, Shuchana Das, Willium Kot and Jenith Biswas. Shucha Das is showing less interests in Bible Study nowadays. But in the beginning she was the most enthusiastic disciple. But the devil is working inside her now. So, please pray for Shuchana Das for her conviction. My goal for my discipleship meeting is to complete the book of Luke this coming month. We already started studying the book of Luke.
Pray for my disciples as they are very much interested and committed to share the gospel to unbelievers. This month I taught them the process of evangelism, how to share gospel to unbelievers. So, they are ready to share now. Pray for them so that God helps them with boldness in faith and scripture, so that they can be a strong witness for the Lord.
I have shared the Bridge illustration with my two students, Ahona Biswas and Abinash Das. They think that they are Christian but they don’t have any clear idea about assurance of salvation. So, pray for them so that they can receive the assurance of salvation.
April 24, 2020–Please pray for me as I am a little upset because I am not getting good connections with students. I only was able to reach 20% students. Some of them I called over the phone and some of them I took class in my neighborhood. As all my students live in the tea garden area and the cell phone network is not available and as I am unable to get out of my village because of Coronavirus. That’s why I couldn’t reach the rest of the students.
But I had a good time with my disciples. I have 5 disciples. They are Srabonti Biswas, Sony Biswas, Jenis Biswas, Shuchana Das and William Kot. They all live in my neighborhood. We gather together twice a week. I am helping them to make good progress on their course materials. They all are working as volunteers in the BMW ministry. I am preparing them so they can lead some Bible groups and also make their own disciples. So, pray for them so they become mature in biblical knowledge. Pray as next week I am planning to teach them on the assurance of salvation and forgiveness. Pray for them so that they receive assurance of salvation. Pray for me so that I can teach them properly and pray for them so that they can understand it clearly. Please pray for one of my disciples, Shuchana Das. She has not responded very much for a couple of days. She required prayer for conviction.

Also, four different Churches from Kulaura Sub-district invited me to start our Bible study program in their areas. Pray for me so that I can get to start new groups over those areas. Please pray for some of my Christian students who are not saved yet but they claim that they are Christian. When I have shared the gospel with them through bridge illustration they become clear about salvation and they got to understand how important is to receive salvation. 15 students are there in that group. Pray for this group so that they can stand firm in their faith.
