What does suffering for the gospel look like and how do we receive joy amidst suffering?
How do we appropriately engage and grieve issues related to people at our placements?
How do we hold positions of power and authority given to us as foreigners?
These questions and more are what we as a team are asking. We’ve just passed the halfway point of this GUP. We’re beginning to feel more settled in Bangladesh, relationships are deepening, and growth is happening and we are also challenged by the poverty that we see and are wrestling with questions as we encounter differences.
We’ve reunited as a team and welcomed back our Rajshahi conference team. David and the 6 students who went with him had an amazing time spending time with BSFB friends, leading Scripture and praying as 40 people made a first time commitment to follow Jesus!
The next 2 weeks will be busy as we reconnect as a team, prepare for a manuscript camp we are hosting at Grace House, and continue to invest in relationships at our placements and with BSFB.
