In Bangladesh young tribal people in the Hill Tracts must leave their homes and live in hostels in order to receive an education. These hostels, run by fundamental Baptist churches, have many needs. Young people in America need to have a vision beyond themselves, and helping these churches in the Hill Tracts would be a great missions project for youth groups or Christian schools. If you are interested, contact Chris Hindal, director of International Ministries, who recently visited those areas.
Prayer and Financial Support for Bible Colleges
These are tough days for Bible colleges as they seek to make a go of it financially. Since the economy downturn of 2008, contributions to Bible colleges and ministry organizations have significantly deceased. Several colleges displayed at the 2012 GARBC Conference: Alpine Ministries (Appalachian Bible College), Mount Hope, W.Va.; Baptist Bible College and Seminary, Clarks Summit, Pa.; Calvary Baptist Seminary, Lansdale, Pa.; Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary, Ankeny, Iowa; Grace Baptist Bible College, Winston-Salem, N.C.; Maranatha Baptist Bible College, Watertown, Wis.; Northland International University, Dunbar, Wis; and Piedmont International University, Winston-Salem, N.C. Please pray for these colleges and other Bible colleges as they seek a financial base to train students for ministry.
