Economy: One of
the world's poorest nations, suffering from gross
over-population and periodic natural disasters such as
devastating floods and cyclones with enormous loss of life.
Income/person:$360.00 per year.
About the Mission Field:There are wonderful fruits of
changed live, baptisms and new congregations in one of the
poorest areas in the world. The rural villages of
Bangladesh have about 110 million people and are seeing very
little outreach by Christian groups. It is a most
difficult area in which to operate, with a majority Muslim
population, and a Hindu minority. In spite of this,
the BEA reaches out in such a practical, service oriented
way that they have earned the respect and affection of those
among whom they serve.
