“There is nothing left.”
This is the cry of fathers, mothers, children, widows, refugees, and migrant workers right now in Bangladesh. COVID-19 took most of what they had. A deadly cyclone took the rest.
While authorities were trying to contain the coronavirus, Cyclone Amphan arrived, taking more lives and thousands of homes. Families had no option but to take refuge in overcrowded emergency shelters, where social distancing was a luxury nobody could afford.
While humanitarian aid organizations work tirelessly to help the physical needs of families in Bangladesh, who will rush to provide for their spiritual needs?
If you knew a $5 Scripture could meet this need, would you provide it?
We have Bibles translated to Bengali in a format that appeals specifically to Muslims, Hope magazines that contain encouraging Psalms and the gospel of John, and audio Bibles for those unable to read.
With permission from the government in Bangladesh, and evangelists ready to share the gospel with refugees and neighbours, there is an unprecedented opportunity to put God’s Word into the hands of the brokenhearted. But the window may not stay open for long.
Will you rise to meet the spiritual needs of the people in Bangladesh in this unprecedented time of openness to the gospel?
