I was born in Rajshahi. I was born in a Santal Hindu family. I was a very naughty boy. Everyone hated me. I became a Christian for money. I was promised support for my studies. I got 300 per month for three years (but it was reduced by 30 taka, so 270). One day in our village, my middle aunt called a prayer meeting at her house. By the influence of the Holy Spirit, she came up to me and said, “Satish, you will not get to heaven.” “Why not?” “You took Jesus Christ in your life, but there is not change in your life. Your life is really bad. You have every bad addiction, but Children of Christ cannot do that.” I felt pain in my heart. I started to reduce my addictions. One day in 2002, after Easter, there was a prayer meeting in my house, led by my younger aunt. They were preaching and several relatives were getting salvation. When I entered the room, the leader said, “Whoever does not have salvation must leave the room.” Everyone raised their hand to say they had salvation, but I couldn’t raise my hand. I was turned out of the room. That was hard on me. Now I HAD to get salvation. I was desperate. The preacher had used Romans 6:23 and Ezekiel 18:20, which gave me great fear. Death was always the greatest fear in my life. I didn’t want to go back to dust. I was afraid of the dark. Just thinking about it gave me a fever. I called out to the Hindu Sun-god,“Why did you make me, if I am just going to become dust again?” I got the feeling that I must get salvation so I can join that group. So I began to confess my sin for seven straight days, but didn’t get salvation, so I became hopeless. I was at another evening prayer meeting, sitting in the back and feeling hopeless that I will never get salvation. When they started to pray, I suddenly started to pray without realizing it and started to cry. My shirt was drenched with my tears. I found myself saying, “God, you saved me!” over and over. The pastor came over, put his hand on me and prayed over me. Then he said, “You got your salvation.” I felt so much peace in my heart. From the next day, my life was totally changed. I didn’t have a Bible and didn’t read the Bible, but since then I have been in the Bible constantly. Two months later I was baptized.I read the Bible every day. I want to work for God, I am working for God and my family wants me to work for God. God gave me BMW as a platform. Here I am, giving my testimony, proving that I am working for God.

They are attending in church, meeting and other Christian activities. I shared John 10:28, 1 John 5:13 and explained them clearly. After I shared they all understood about the assurance of salvation. Keep praying for their more understanding about assurance of salvation.

But no religion speaks about salvation except the Christian religion. Then I shared John 3:16 and Romans 6:23. I explained to them how a man can get salvation through believing in Jesus. According to Acts 4:12, without accepting Jesus no one can go to heaven. After I shared all these things they told me, “Yes, our religion never speaks about salvation. We have doubt about some of our belief system like worshiping idols.” I told them they still have time to know about Jesus. Please pray for their understanding about the truth and pray they can be children of God.
September 18, 2020–I shared assurance of salvation with Sohel (26) and Esterina (29). They are Christian, but they don’t know how they can go in Heaven and what the assurance of salvation is.

Jongla Hansda told me he would never accept Jesus. Today I met with Jongla Hansda and started to talk. During our conversation, I told him there is no way to get salvation without Jesus. Only Jesus can give us eternal life. After I shared about Jesus he told me he himself, his wife Alka Mardi and his son Mathias Hansda wanted to accept Jesus in their life and wanted to be a child of God. Pray for them and me as well so that I could prepare them for Christ.
September 3, 2020– Praise God that I have received the answer to my prayer. My prayer was to work in the Rajshahi area among the indigenous people. By the grace of God I moved to Rajshahi in August and settled everything in Rajshahi town. God also has provided me with an office place at Rajshahi city from where I will be able to control the North part of BD.
After coming to Rajshahi I was able to visit 6 groups and shared the gospel with 5 unbelievers. I have a plan to visit 10 more groups in September and also to share the gospel with another 5 people. In August I had discipleship class with my 6 disciples. I am encouraging them to concentrate on Bible reading.

Then I asked them, “Wherewill you go after your death?” They were quiet. Then I shared 1 John 5:13 and John 10:28. I felt that they still had confusion. I asked them, “Do you read the Bible every day?” They said no. I told them, “If you are not reading the Bible regularly, you will not understand about that.” Then I encouraged them to start reading the Bible and I prayed for their lives and salvation. Please pray for them so that God can change their heart and they can accept Jesus in their life.
August 11, 2020–I shared the Bridge Illustration with Ketu (60), Milni (55), and Nirjon (23), all Hindus, through Romans 3:23 and 6:23 and let them understand that why we can’t go to heaven and how we can get salvation from our sin. I told them Jesus is the only way to go to heaven. After my sharing, they understood that they are sinners and through belief in Jesus we will get the eternal life in heaven. They made the decision that they will accept Jesus Christ as a personal savior in their lives. They are believing in Jesus and asking prayer for their lives. Please pray for their lives and their faith in Jesus.

Also, I like to request you to pray for two people whom I shared the gospel with. They are Sushila Murmu and Shandhya Rani Biswas. Shushila is a Christian lady, but she doesn’t have the assurance of salvation. Now, she got to understand about it. I want you to pray for the knowledge from the Spirit for her. Another lady, Sandhya, is from a Hindu family (age 48) believes in working for eternal life. So, I have gone through Eph. 2:8-9 with her. So, pray for her so that she may blessed with the understanding by the Spirit.
Please pray for Tithee Malaker as she became the new coordinator for the south area and Happy Bala as she got a new position. She became the accountant for the South area under Tithee. So, please pray for them for the guidance of God and for the knowledge to maintain with everything.

I have received the answer to my prayer. I have been praying for a long time for I can be settled in the north part of this country. I would like to give thanks to God that even though it was very hard for me to work in the south, God was with me and guided me to continue my work.
I have some challenges in the north area. The area will be new for me and I don’t know many leaders and people in the north area as I grew up in the south area. A big challenge will be brother Premanondo, one of my staff, for me to work with. He is arrogant and stubborn, that I have found in him, but I believe with God’s help I will win his heart. Pray that God may give him conviction in his heart and soften his mind towards me. Also, pray for him so that God may arrange a wife for him. And pray for his mom so that she may accept Christ as her savior.
June 17, 2020--We talked on different topics but during the conversation Sondha Rani Biswas (48) was asking, “where is it written in the Bible that you can’t eat temple Prasad.” I shared from the Bible and also shared Ephesians 2:8-9.

Pray that we are making some plan to arrange some mini camps, harvesting camps to revive them and encourage them in my areas because through the harvesting mini camp we would be able to win some new souls for God’s kingdom. But we are unable to do that during the lockdown situation. I seek patience from God so that He can make a way to arrange all of these very soon.
