In December 2018, Bijoy Bangladesh Children’s Ministry, which had been established fifteen years ago, has successfully doing God’s work as a national ministry. By the end of 2018 they had successfully carried out various programs for children and teenagers in Bangladesh and even in India.

Christmas parties for underprivileged kids

They had been holding Christmas parties for neighboring kids since 2003. In last December, they had four Christmas parties in different location of Bangladesh. They invited 500 kids and their parents to celebrate the Joy of Christmas in Dhaka. Those who were touched by their ministry have the chance to stay connected the whole year through their weekly service called Happy Birds Assembly. However, the Christmas party was not only for the kids and their parents. This year they also had Christmas party for the teenagers.

One of the participant was a 16 years old girl who were born in a fundamental Moslem family, name Asha. She had overcome difficultness in her life and finally could knew Jesus by this Christmas party. Not only Asha who were touched by the Words of God, but the others teenagers too. Most of the teenagers were remaining connected through their regular service called G-Team.

Missions trip to India

The mission trip to India began when some Hindi and Bengali churches in Silliguri, West Bengal, India invited this children ministry to do visit and minister them. They brought a team from Bangladesh to help the children’s ministry, teenagers, and families from different churches. In their mission trip, they did five kids service, one teen program, and one family seminar. They helped the churches for a week.

This February they will held another batch of training and children outreach for a week long. Let us pray for them as they are discipling so many children into leaders.

Raising Nurturers in The Context of Family

by Foo Fu Fong (edited by the 4/14 Window Media Team)

Maybe what we had found out in our lives as we are raising our own family is, most of the time our families are struggling badly on their own and the Church is not adequately equipping and discipling the home. This is creating a mindset in us, that there is a looming crisis in our midst – we are losing the next generation! What we certainly have to know at the first place is that the family is the institution that God has created to fulfill His plans for His Kingdom purposes! This is way more important before anything else is intended to do His will.

Genesis 2:24, NASB says, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. And His purpose for the family is : “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion…” (Genesis 1:28, KJV). So certainly God had created family for so many reasons – and we are to multiply, to have dominion over this earth.

In between multiplying and to subdue and to have dominion over this earth, is a growing arena. Discipleship takes place in this process. The family is where God has intended for discipleship of the next generation to take place!

So here is what I have to share about discipling and raising nurturers in the family. The most important one is that we should Establish a biblical worldview in our Children; that they have to love God, Love His Word and obey His Word. Then teach those word of God to your children.

You could teach those word by memorizing God’s Word as a family, create reminders of God’s Word in the home, be a role model of depending your life in His world. Bible Storytelling, Testimonies, Teachable moments, family devotions can be ways to share God’s word.
