In Bangladesh, Christian converts come from a Muslim, Buddhist and Hindu background. They face the most pressure from family and community, as well as from Islamic extremist groups and religious leaders. As demands to introduce sharia (Islamic) law increase, believers are regularly monitored and treated with hostility, especially those who have converted from Islam.

Pray: For a continued boldness for Christians in Bangladesh as they share the Gospel.
