BANGLADESH


In 1990, the first workers went to pioneer the work in Bangladesh. They were David Rundle and John Watt, both New Zealanders, although David had spent a number of years in Pakistan prior to going to Bangladesh. Since going to Bangladesh, David has also been involved in the pioneering work in Nepal. A significant number of workers who have gone to Bangladesh for any length of time have been New Zealanders. Perhaps the two countries have some special status that makes it much easier (or maybe not even necessary) for New Zealanders to get visas to be there.

In 2000, the first two sister workers went there. They were Adele Jeske (Wisconsin, USA) and Fiona Muirhead (New Zealand).  Adele is the only one of the "original" workers presently in Bangladesh.  

The number of workers remains constant. There are four; however, with home visits, there is usually one out of the country.

In 2010, the present workers are Rick Larson (Saskatchewan), Jason Robson (NZ), Adele, and Leah Beyer (Iowa).  Deborah Wentz is on home visit in USA and will be returning.

The language is Bengali, which native speakers call Bangla.  

Convention is held at Dhaka, the capital, which has an estimated total attendance of 50-60, or maybe more.  They use a rented facility for convention.  Besides a core group of friends in Dhaka, there are friends in various country villages and in the city of Khulna.
