High School Students Hear the Word

High school

What do you remember about high school? Maybe it was the great time you had playing sports or being in the band. Maybe you enjoyed classes and being on student council. Maybe you were being homeschooled and you began to experience new life lessons.

No matter your experience in high school, this time was probably very formative for you. You were at the age when you began to think critically about the people and situations around you. You began to form your worldview and you began to gain your independence.

The same is true for high school students all across the world. High School is truly a fantastic time for lives to be impacted by the gospel. And Live Global's national partners in Bangladesh know all about it.

What Is Friendship Bible Correspondence School?

For 18 years, Friendship Ministries in Bangladesh has been on the front lines of sharing the gospel in unique and creative ways with locals. They have mobile Bible library units, a number of educational programs, some sports teams, and Friendship Bible Correspondence School.

If you attend this school you take a number of Bible and theology courses to earn a certification at the end. It's been the vehicle God uses to save and equip new believers in Bangladesh for years.

Students at the school

And the exciting thing is that recently, Friendship Bible Correspondence School has been invited to several high schools to distribute their courses.

Teaching Bible Classes in High School

It's such a huge praise that the school has received these invitations. Most of the high school students in Bangladesh come from Muslim or Hindu families. What an impact this school and these courses may have on these students when they hear the gospel for the first time.

Right now, Friendship Ministries is working among 1,200 high school students. Of those, 350 have completed the courses and will receive certification!

Challenges Ahead

Praise God for the 350 students who completed the Bible school courses. It's tradition at the end of a session to offer the students a graduation program. But right now the school doesn't have the finances to do it for this group. The all-day graduation program would normally include an exciting time of testimony sharing, singing, and preaching. But the school is $750 short.

Also, the school needs more Bibles to use with the students in future classes. They are eager to get the Word of God in the hands of each student who signs up.

Praise God for His faithfulness to all generations and His compassion on so many souls. Let's pray He continues to work in the lives of high school students in Bangladesh.


From a church to a literature library mobile boat, Friendship Ministries is about sharing the love of Jesus and discipling believers throughout Bangladesh.
