Bangladesh Women's Health Evangelism Program Results in 13 Baptisms
Approximately 70 people attended the “Women and Health Evangelism Program” at the Kellogg Mookherjee Memorial Seminary (KMMS) at South Bangladesh Mission last month. South Bangladesh Mission officers and workers, KMMS workers, laywomen, 10 standards students from KMMS, and many ladies from other areas came to join in the program.
The theme was taken from Proverbs 17:22: “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” Dr. Douglas D. Roy, Pastor Edward P. Chambugong, Pastor Daniel Baidya, Usha Boidya and Lucena Chambugong presented the lectures.
Attendees received free weight measuring, blood pressure checkups, and medicine for some general diseases. ADRA Bangladesh assisted the program by giving medicines. The left over medicines were donated to hostels. All the women and the boys and girls were so happy for this.
Just after the health program the women visited outside of the campus. They went to some homes, talked to the people, and prayed for them.
On Sabbath, the program started earlier. After the Sabbath class discussion, 13 souls were baptized because they had accepted Jesus Christ. Each baptismal candidate received a Bible. Pastor Chambugong preached in the worship service. After the service a fellowship lunch was provided for all the attendees and the students.
“ We all have enjoyed the whole programs and we believe that we have received abundant blessings from God.” - Lucena Chambugong
