Bangladesh is a country of 158 million people situated just above the northeast shoulder of India. Only a miniscule fraction of this multitude is Christian. Twenty-two years ago a young Bangladeshi man named Biswas gave his life to the Lord and became a pastor/church-planter. Since then he has led many of his countrymen to Christ, teaching them not only to be disciples of Jesus Christ, but to train them so that they will be able to train others to become pastors and evangelists.
The number of churches has exponentially increased; it now stands at approximately 2,400. The requirement for pastoral training is so strategically critical that he is requesting assistance to build a Training Center to accommodate the demand. A parcel of land has been purchased and most of the construction labor will be supplied by men from surrounding churches.
The center will consist of three buildings: A meeting hall, a dormitory, and a dining/kitchen facility surrounded by a security fence. This Center represents a strategic investment for bringing the gospel to the people of Bangladesh, and will equip wave after wave of Bangladeshi pastors who will be able to reach out to the 85,000 villages that have yet to hear the good news of their Savior and Redeemer. The cost of the Meeting Hall is $30,000; the total cost for all of the buildings is $72,000.
