LHCB continues to be the only Christian mission in
southern Bangladesh, a predominantly Muslim country where 83% of the population are Muslim, 16% Hindu and less than 1% Christian.
LHCB is a living example of God’s word in action:
Christians living and working together with Muslims and Hindus in an area where some of the world's poorest people with the greatest needs are served by the fewest missionaries and resources.
