Time is passing very fast. It has been about a month for us in the USA. On October 24, we went to Angleton, Texas, and stayed at Dennis and Eileen Davenport’s house up to the 29th. Dennis went to Bangladesh with a team to visit us in 2012 as I can remember. He became a good friend and partner of us. Whenever we visit this area, they open their house for us and do their best to take care of us. Our boys find their grandfather and grandmother among them. This time too, they did their best to take care of us. We are very grateful to them.
We are also very much thankful to Dr. Dean Wiebracht and his wife Linda. He was my mission professor in my theological school in the Philippines. Linda was Metali’s team leader and taught her much about women’s ministry. Every time we came to the USA they used to meet with us. Last 2019, we stayed at their house at Cineber, WA. and they introduced us to his church people. Dr. Dean is sick, but he arranged a Zoom meeting to talk with us. We are very much thankful for their great love, faithful prayer, and financial support.
Drew Davenport, pastor of the Angleton Community Friends Church arranged a dinner party with some of his church members at Olive Garden Italian Restaurant. The next day we all, especially Edwin, played on a go cart. It was fun. On the 26th, the weather was not good. It was raining. But we ate a very special fish that day called halibut. Dennis caught fish from the Gulf of Alaska by hook. Eileen is a good cook I need to admit.
The 27th was a memorable day for E. He drove a go cart on a track with others and played video game at LeeRoy’s ESPORTS. October 28th was a fun and busy day for us. Shooting practice in the morning, car show in the afternoon, and dinner fellowship in the evening. We are very much thankful to Margarett Johnson who contacted us earlier for this dinner fellowship. I am very much thankful to Dennis for the shooting practice that reminded me again to be consistent for better results. Also, we watched three animal documentary films; one was about dogs, the second was about the eagle, and the third that I was touched by is “My Octopus Teacher.” It is a touching documentary about how a man can fall in love with an Octopus.
Sunday the 29th was also a busy day for us. We spoke at the Community Friends Church in Angleton in the morning. Thanks to all church member for their love, care, and partnership with us. A former missionary couple who worked in Bangladesh came to talk with us when they learned that we were there. They are from another church denomination from Dunberry. We had a very good potluck fellowship lunch and table talk with many people. We drove back to Pearland and took a little rest in the afternoon and then headed to attend a fellowship group at Bayshore Friends Church. I am very much thankful to Pastor Karl Newmann and mission coordinator Shirley McDaniel for their effort to arrange a fellowship with the committed church member within a very short time. We were very happy that many asked many questions to know better our ministry.
Thank you also for your love, prayer, and sharing. We took a rest on Monday and are now ready to move to the Oregon area. We will be in that area from November 1-13 and then we will move to Vancouver and Washington area. Please pray that our time with different church people and friends be fruitful.
Pray that the Lord open the hearts of many people to be our partner through prayer and giving to win billions of unreached people for Christ in Bangladesh
