Friends, it is cooling down here on the island, which means the high is 86 instead of 89, and people around us are enjoying the abundance of rice and fish that define April and May. Here is the latest…
– Early October is when our team here in Madagascar will finish. We will all be returning to our home countries, and there are already plans being made to form a new team which can carry on the work in our current villages, as well as reach out to other surrounding areas. Please pray with us as we decide our future path after this current term. We have been asked to return as part of the next team, and we desire to go wherever God wills.
– We are thankful for the prayer and financial support we have received from so many friends and churches during our time in Madagascar. All of the exciting things happening here are only possible because of this partnership. For us to be able to finish our time here, we are in need of a few more financial supporters. The addition of a new baby, and the loss of some of our financial partners, has put us close to “the red” in our MTW account. If this is something that God puts on your heart, please consider supporting us. You can follow this link to find out the best way for you to do that (our missionary number is 14427):
– Also, our team has continued with the gatherings, the latest one focusing on Jesus’ teachings in Matthew and challenging people for a response. The Band even created a song for this gathering based on the parable of the sower. We have begun going to 2 new villages with our gatherings, Andimakabo and Andrafia. We will write more about these new adventures soon… but in the meantime you can read an article Rebe recently wrote for MTW’s Network Magazine about the ministry here in Nosy Be:
– Lastly, in the article there is a link to a video of the creation song the band made last year. Here is the video, which was made by our friend and teammate, Tori Alverson:
