Bangladesh (MNN) — In Bangladesh, Christmas provides the perfect opportunity to spread the Good News!
“We like to use special occasions like Christmas to reach out to our neighbors. There are 100 [people living] around our church; they’re all Muslim and some Hindus,” Pastor Mushi says.
Pastor Mushi and his church will celebrate Christmas together on Sunday. Then, they have a special event planned for Monday, December 26.
“[This is a] very good opportunity for us to reach out [to the] business people, shopkeepers, laborers all around us. We’ll sing Christmas songs and share the Word of God, cake, foodstuffs, and other things,” Pastor Mushi says.
“I believe that [the event] will really touch many people, and they will know the (Gospel) truth.”
Pray that the upcoming community outreach plans find favor with the Lord. “Festival days are a very good opportunity, so please pray. Pray that we can do it (the outreach event) without any problem [or] hindrances,” Pastor Mushi requests.
“When one is converted from a Muslim background, he loses everything,” Pastor Mushi says.
“[His] family throws him away and he also runs away from the family to save his life.”
