One Christian ministry is involved in teaching Bangladeshi churches how to disciple others. Their heart is to see whole churches capture a missional vision, to be equipped to disciple others in the community in order that small groups multiply, and new churches are born. Praise God for these Bangladeshi men and women who take seriously Jesus’ command to go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Pray that as they obey this in their own communities, in their own nation, many people will come to faith in Christ and be discipled well (The Bible, Mark 16:15).

Known as “the Land of the Thunder Dragon,” Bhutan prides itself on its elevated “happiness” levels despite being considered a least developed country. Rather than relying on Gross Domestic Product as the leading indicator of the small Himalayan nation’s progress, the late King Wangchuk suggested it should examine its “Gross National Happiness.” In South Asia, Bhutan ranks highly in economic freedom and per capita income and ranks low in corruption. It has almost eradicated all extreme poverty and was the first nation to fully vaccinate its entire population against COVID-19. Yet, Christians are sometimes denied employment, free education, and access to electricity and water. Buddhism, mysticism, and animism have dominated the country since the 7th century.
