Bangladesh graduation launches new outreach.

6/14/07 Bangladesh (Mission Network News) — Despite efforts to improve Bangladesh ‘s economic and demographic prospects, the country remains poor and overpopulated.

Periodic natural disasters like flooding during monsoon season and cyclones are usually accompanied by enormous loss of life, further hampering economic growth. Reform is stalled in many instances by political infighting and corruption at all levels of government.

In an effort to control at least one area of the chaotic region, the government declared Islam to be the state religion 19 years ago. While the government asserts religious freedom exists, Islamic pressure seems to be eroding the safeguards in place for religious and ethnic minorities.

IN Network’s passion to bring hope to Bangladesh began an outreach in 1974. From there, the vision spread in the form of schools for poor and displaced children, a Vocational Bible Institute for future evangelists, and House of Prayer Fellowship centers.

That said, IN-Network Bangladesh just celebrated yet another successful graduation.

Students of the Vocational Bible Institute (VBI), and the Sewing and Office Assistant Training Program (OATP) marked this rite of passage in Savar , Bangladesh . This one-year course of study helps students to learn vocational skills along with their Bible training.

The VBI students will be going to rural areas to proclaim the word of Jesus Christ among non believers. Pray for successful outreach.
