Pastor Jan heading to Bangladesh April 25

     Rev. Jan L. Beaderstadt, president of Renaissance Outreach Ministries will be heading again to Bangladesh 25 April for nine days where he will be teaching two conferences on ministry finance.

      He will be teaming up again with Rev. Newton Sarkar as they train rural pastors on how to become self-supporting.

       Rev. Sarkar has pioneered the concept of self-supporting ministries in Bangladesh. He has conducted his own ministry over the last ten years by doing business to support his ministry in this South Asian Country. He has been very successful as a businessman, and has plowed his profits into doing free seminars for pastors around this country.

      Renaissance Outreach Ministries has long been a major supporter of Rev. Newton Sarkar’s work.  Both ministries have cooperated together in the past to conduct seminars in both Bangladesh and Nepal.

     Please lift these seminars in prayer. This is the hot time of year when temperatures often rise to above 110º F. in the rural areas where the conferences will be held.
