(3) 270 mph cyclone does major damage both on and off campus!

June 2, 2015

At midnight on May 23rd, a 270 MPH cyclone ripped through the Bangla Hope campus causing major damage to vegetation and minor damage to the structures. (Thank God, no people on campus were injured) Many poorly constructed village structures were severly damaged. CLICK HERE to see pictures.

(4) Dave's eye damage update.

June 2, 2015

Unfortunately, the retina in Dave's eye has never healed and he can just see a little light in the damaged eye. (He was hit in the eye with a badminton birdie that had been modified to be heavier than normal US badminton birdies) He is thankful that he still has one good eye so he can still drive and go about his daily activities almost normally.

December 4, 2014

As you can see by these photos, the Bangla Hope Campus church (which meets in the dining hall) is full and overflowing! A new dedicated church facility is a much needed improvement.
