    Hey all,

    Have benefited from this board a lot over the last few/several years but didn't actually join till a few weeks ago. Grateful to be here. I'm in the PCA and we're part of a small team serving in Bangladesh. One of the main things we get to do here is help to ground a local denomination in a Reformed/Covenantal understanding of the Scriptures; and I've been working on curriculum on and off for a good few years now. It's been a huge blessing to re-study through the covenants and read some of the Puritans for the first time on the subject; but there are also new questions that come up. I hope it's okay to use this forum to put forward to you all some of these questions. Really grateful to be here with you all.

    Jon,

    Perhaps someday you will cross paths with Bathiran Samuel of http://puritanreformedministries.org/index.php in Manipur. He is also the founder of PRBS and a member here at PB. The resources at PRBS might be a valuable resource for your efforts.

    Do you work with the Presbyterian Church of Bangladesh?!? I bet we know some of the same people. My Dad and I were over there for a 2 week trip to offer training to their local Pastors. We had quite the time.

    Ben,

    We work with the Presbyterian Church of Bangladesh, but there are actually two of them. There is one in Dhaka, that works with the majority group; there is another based in the "Hill Tracts", that started among an indigenous group there and is engaging mostly there in the Hill Tracts; we work with the second. That's great you've been to Bangladesh. It's always a joy to run across folks that have been here--not many make it out this way.

    That's wonderful what you were doing in Bangladesh, member here but hardly ever posted but reading things along the way here in there. God bless you!
