Pakistan - Bangladesh
Last month, we shared about an immediate opportunity to make an impact in the least-reached countries of Pakistan and Bangladesh.
We’re pleased to report that we now have 50% funding for the Urdu translation and a commitment for 100% of the funding for the Bengali translation. This means this discipleship tool will begin impacting these countries soon!
In most places where this material is so impactful and needed, the training is greatly enhanced by each participant receiving their own printed copy of the notes. Many treasure the resource and review it over and over again long after the training is over.
This printing need creates an ongoing cost for our partners who work tirelessly to meet the need for Biblical teaching in their country, doing multiple workshops a month when possible. Some, particularly in Bangladesh and Pakistan, are raising their families for under $200/month. While translation is a one-time expense, the cost to print these life-changing, highly sought after and valued books is ongoing.
If the Lord blesses us with funds above the cost of the two translations, we will direct that toward the cost of printing SALT workbooks. Please consider whether you might be instrumental in providing a set of SALT workbooks for one of our partners!
