As part of a JESUS Film Harvest Partner’s initiative, NNU alumni will depart January 19 for a two-week trip to Bangladesh. Located in southern Asia, Bangladesh is an area in critical need of JESUS film equipment and ministry teams.

Tahmina Martelly, a member of the NNU Alumni Association Board of Directors and class of 1988, was born and raised in Bangladesh. She expressed, “I am amazed and absolutely awed by what God is doing in Bangladesh! As a young Bengali Christian, I thought I was the only one in the world and felt so alone. But now I have met and seen firsthand men and women who are leading and pastoring churches in my home country. Only God can do that.”

The NNU team of alumni and campus personnel will deliver six film-equipment packs to the field and experience firsthand the powerful impact this film has on people who are hungry to hear the gospel in their native language.  In addition, the team will receive an on-field cultural orientation, distribute Jesus film invitations and help set up and tear down equipment for events as well as participate in outreach and compassionate ministries.

“I’m excited to be part of this NNU alumni team taking new film equipment into Bangladesh,” Martelly said. “I know God will open many more doors for ministry opportunities in the future!”

Please pray for Martelly and the team in the coming week
