Last week we celebrated together with our partner in Bangladesh a wonderful milestone. The 100th episode of the ‘Uddipon’(meaning REVIVAL) series has been broadcasted on national television. Bengali church leaders, our entire partner team and other valued guests came together in celebration. Click here for a film impression of the Uddipon series.
Evangelizing in one of the worlds largest and most populated Muslim countries is not easy. Making it ever so unique that we are able to broadcast drama programs intertwining the gospels message with problematic social issues. Programs in which Gods love and plans for are integrated. Following Jesus example, using stories people can relate to while addressing crucial aspects and taboos.
Joining forces with local churches
One of 3xM’s core objectives includes working together with local Christian leaders in spreading the gospel. Believing John 17 to hold a valuable element for any individual of ministry.
It is exciting to see what can happen when churches begin to join forces. The probability of obtaining national airtime increases. The church gains credibility when leaders chose to rise above their differences, striving for one common cause. This is not easy and often seems to go against our natural tendencies.
The celebration last week was a direct result of working together in unity. Leader of the Baptist, Roman Catholic, Evangelical churches as well as many other denominations were represented.
That all of them may be one, Father,
just as you are in me and I am in you.
May they also be in us so that the world may believe
that you have sent me.
