Dr. John Costa has been working with the Khanjanpur Mission Health Service (a part of the Churches of God Mission in Bangladesh) for the last 27 years as an ophthalmologist, providing medical treatment and performing vital eye surgeries for the poor who could not otherwise receive treatment. A large part of his outreach occurs as he conducts remote medical camps within underprivileged communities throughout the area. In 2019, John became Country Director of the Mission. His wife, Kalpana, is the daughter of the late Narjit Chandra Das who served as pastor of the Churches of God Mission Church in Bogra before 1972. John and Kalpana have one adult son, Michael.
