Did you know that every single donation and prayer makes a difference for our missionaries and those they are helping? Our goal is to ignite hope one relationship at a time.
The following story is shared by our Friends in Bangladesh and shows how one relationship was changed from your support.
“Rakhi Das was born and raised in a Hindu family and married a Hindu man. She led idol worship in her family every morning and evening. It became a habitual practice in her life, but she was not satisfied. Krisna thought she might not be satisfying her god’s properly, so she became more diligent in worshiping idols. Still, her life was full of anxiety and fear. One day she read in Gita (holy book for Hindu) that God Krisna said he came to destroy sinners and save the righteous. Rakhi was convinced that every bad thing was happening because of her sin.
One day one of our Friends lay Pastors, Joydeb Mollik, shared Jesus with her. Joydeb was also a Hindu man before and shared his testimony with her how his life was changed. He boldly declared that Jesus changed his life and saved him from death. Now his life is full of joy and peace. Rakhi requested Joydeb to come again when her husband was home. Rakhi shared everything she heard with her husband. Two days later, they invited Joydeb to come to their house again. Joydeb, along with his disciple, Alip, went to her house. They shared many things about Jesus and showed the Jesus film. Some other family members also watched the film. They gave them an opportunity to receive Christ as their Savior. Rakhi and her husband first came to receive Christ. Her life was totally changed. She said, “I have no fear at all now and I know that Jesus is with me always.”
Rakhi is now leading a women group of 12 and sharing Bible stories with them regularly. She mainly asks women to come to her group and pray to Jesus. Jesus is answering their prayers. Her faith is now increasing. Pray that Rakhi can be used very powerfully in her area and more multiplying church can be planted.”
