Flood Project Report from Bangladesh
“Christian people really love others” was the proclamation by Muslims and Hindus who were recruited to join churches in an effort to help Bangladesh recover from massive flooding.
BTJ always tries to lend a helping hand when help is needed. This can seem overwhelming, but the Lord is in control of all resources. This is why it was a blessing to work together with another ministry, Bangladesh Social Service, to play a small part in helping the people in Bangladesh affected by the floods. It was also exciting to hear reports that Muslims and Hindus were moved by the Christians showing love to others; God’s hand is moving.
The numbers are very encouraging – 800 individuals were able to receive Bible story books and the gospel was shared for the very first time with many individuals. This outreach inspired those helping on the ground to send pioneer church planters to plant a church where there is none, and they will follow-up with those reached during this Flood-aid project.
Total # of people benefitting: 3580 individuals
Location: Sylet families: 300 + Gaibandha families: 200 = 500 families
Those working on ground wanted to make sure to thank all who donated to this humanitarian aid effort.
