Re-thinking Barnes and Noble

Picture a crowded place like Starbucks or Barnes & Noble.

This is where people talk. They exchange ideas. Common spaces (especially ones that don’t charge admission) facilitate this sort of interaction.

Friendship Ministries (FM) has made a free, coffee shop- style space for people to hang out, read, and talk with one another. This has been an incredibly effective way for FM to engage people with the Gospel and develop relationships.

However, one of their successful locations is being required to move because the road where it’s located is being expanded, essentially through the building.

Because this has been such an effective ministry, FM is looking for a new location to recreate the reading room.

Please pray for a space that would be an even better location for FM to continue sharing the gospel with those 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.
