Cheryl has a visa from the Bangladesh government to teach Spoken English in our area.  She works for an NGO (non-governmental organization) called Transformation Center, which is a project of SIM Bangladesh. Rather than having one central classroom, she goes to where the students live or work to hold classes.  Teaching Spoken English gives us a legitimate reason to live and work here. It also is a means to build relationships with those in our community. There are opportunities to insert truth from Scripture into the lessons. The hope is that these will spark interest in God and His Word. Don has a visa as Cheryl’s “accompanying spouse”. He oversees a Gospel outreach program called IOW, which stands for Indigenous Outreach Workers. This is also a project of SIM, but not part of our NGO work. Currently, there are 4 IOW couples, working in 4 different areas in the southwest of the country. Each couple is reaching out to their fellow Bengalis in their respective areas. Don disciples the husbands and arranges seminars/conferences for their ongoing spiritual growth. Cheryl is also involved with discipling the IOW wives and children.
