There was a Bible school held in Solomon Islands on Malaita Island in July 2019. The Youth conference was held in January 2020. These are very much appreciated by the local brethren & sisters as it is an opportunity for them to be able to fellowship together.

– Currently there are 63 brethren and sisters in Bangladesh.
– There are 3 meetings, Notun Bazar, Savar and Mymensingh. Notun Bazar is in Dhaka, Savar is a town about an hour north west of Dhaka and Mymensingh is a rural village about 4 hours north. (These times are all very variable depending on the road conditions.)

Sadly many of them are unable to work at the present time and one brother had to walk over 100km to get home.
They have been using their time at home to spend time reading and sharing with others in the village.
Government COVID19 lockdowns has meant no work or food for millions of day labourers, and small businesses.
While Moslems have rallied and are supporting their own, there is little help for Christians. Already food parcels have been made up and distributed to Christadelphians, their extended families and interested friends in seven centres.
No preaching weekends are possible … just family meetings. There is a focus on daily Bible readings and generally catching up is by phone or WhatsApp communication. Regular Bible classes from Australia continue.
