I was born in a Christian family. From my childhood I was obedient, the definition of a good girl. I was faithful in church in all kinds of meetings and activities. I didn’t realize that I am a sinner. In 2001, I attended a youth conference. One of my childhood teachers I liked was the preacher that day. I listened carefully. He was preaching about sin. He quoted Romans 3:23 which says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” As he explained, I realized that I was a sinner and wondered, “How can I get rid of my sin?” November 2, 2001 I talked to him personally and asked “How can I be freed from my sin?” He understood my feeling and what I was asking. He gave me Acts 4:12. The name is “Jesus Christ.” He advised me to concentrate on this verse and pray. I read it over and over and meditated on it. I realized Jesus Christ is the only way to be saved from sin. I started to confess my sin silently to the Lord. I got the feeling that I am free from my sin and cleansed in my heart. Then I started to serve God. This was my earlier desire, but the taste of salvation made me start to truly serve God

I’m a bit sick of the cold and with my breathing problem. I couldn’t do evangelism last month. Pray so that our God of mercy may heal me and I can again approach unbelieving brother and sisters in a new way. Give thanks that we could be able to successfully complete the meeting with the local top leaders. They promised us for all kinds of support. Here is some of the things we’re looking forward to our graduation program. Examples are: student examinations, selection of places, worship team, volunteer groups. Pray for us so that the Lord help us to do what is right for them and for this program of 17th January 20.
November 8, 2019–Prayer requests for this month-
- Final exam. A total of 280 students are going to sit for the final exam. Pray they can pass the exam.
- Pray for me, Rose Merry and Mridul Biswas as we are working hard to make them ready for the exam. Pray for us for the strength, wisdom, and guidance through the Holy Spirit.
- Pray for Uzzal Hossain whom I shared the Gospel through Bridge Illustration. Pray for his conviction.
- Pray for my family. My father is sick and Mom also very weak. We are going through a hard time now. My younger sister’s marriage date has fixed on Nov 29. But it requires a big amount of money for the marriage ceremony. The whole family is now depending on my salary. I don’t know how could I manage the cost of this marriage. But I believe that God can help me. So, please pray for me so that God bless me and provide me all the financial support for this marriage.
Pray for me so I can prepare students for graduation within our selected time. Especially pray for three groups, Kolaroa and Verchi(Hindu-2+Muslim-1 group). There are still many Hindu and Muslim students in those three groups whom I could not make them finish the course. May the Lord help every student of those groups to finish the work of books with their own interest for the rest of the days. Pray for them.
Pray for Rosemary and Mridul. They are also working here with heart and soul for Christ. Rosemary Biswas has some groups a little far from city and she also takes care of a group of Hindu women. Mridul is doing evangelism work here, sometimes we feel he might face critical situations but the Holy Spirit always guides him when he talks with non-believers. Keep them in prayer.
We have a plan to arrange team leaders and volunteers meeting next 26th November ’19. Pray for each and every student so that they can receive and understand purpose of life and also pray for us so that we can motivate them properly and prepare them as soldiers of the Kingdom.
We are worried about our graduation place and the surrounding situations of that time. Please pray so that we can get a perfect place and nice weather.
