James and Linda Pender are both well and working in Rajshahi. Their new address is:-
C/O: The Director, Christian Mission Hospital, Rajshahi 6000, PO: Rajshahi Court, Rajshahi District, BANGLADESH. They would be delighted to hear from you.
By the time you have read this, the Minister will have been to Bangladesh for the consecration of the new Bishop of Kushtia which took place in Haluaghat on 8th November. Before the consecration, Matthew travelled with Martin Mondal to Haluaghat on 4th and was able to see the new clinic supported by the Presbytery and also visit Bikash whom he met last year after a gap of 29 years, before travelling to Jobarpar to see the completed church and school which we supported in the work camp in 2008. No doubt there will be opportunities to hear more of the visit and get an update on the work which we have supported over the years.
