Dhaka

“You’re going to Dhaka?” the Bengali man asks. We stepped up to board our flight. He stops his conversation to inquire about the six white Americans at gate 109 cramming onto a seven hour flight from Istanbul to Dhaka, Bangladesh. I tell him we are, indeed, headed to Dhaka. He puts his hands on his… Read more

Bloggers in Bangladesh, Me on Twitter

I Am Your Neighbor: Debi and Joti

An Expedition in Faith, Hope, and Love

We started our morning tucked in the back office of a school in a community in Dhaka to spend some time together in devotions. We read 1 Corinthians 13, the ”love chapter.” A passage that is read so often it is tempting to tune it out. Read more

Our First Day in Bangladesh

We landed this morning in Bangladesh and already feel like we’ve been here three days. I’m pretty sure that’s because it took us close to 30 hours just to fly here. We had an uneventful flight, thank goodness, which is always great on a trip to far away. The team is definitely tired but inspired… Read more
