Bishop In Bishop Mankhin’s Kushtia Diocese, Rev. Probhudan Hira and Rev. Immanuel Mollick have worked alongside six evangelists to launch a renewed initiative to bring the gospel to the Santal tribal people in the Northwest.

Over the years, other presbyters and catechists have joined in the effort. As a result, families in Bajpukur, Laldighipara, Dokhin Sohor, Kushia, Lalmatia, Hudrapur, Koelhat, Suguna, Tatihati, Polashi, and Salbandha have received baptism into the fellowship of believers.

During this same time, in Dhaka Diocese, Tripura tribal families formed vibrant worshiping communities in the villages of Giriful and Bailachori in the Southeast after hearing the gospel preached by Rev. Deacon James Baroi.

More and more people who live under the weight of oppression and the constraints of poverty are awakening to the joy and hope of salvation through Jesus Christ. Let us rejoice as Christ’s body continues to grow in Bangladesh.
