For those of you who are keeping us in your prayers, this page has several specific things you can pray for us about.  We update it regularly, so any time you want to know what you can pray for us about, you can always check here!  And for prayer about the nation of Madagascar, we have a “Madagascar News” page that you can always check for up-to-date news, so you’ll know how to pray for the nation.

1) Praise God that Madagascar’s recent elections have been peacefully concluded.  Initially there was a bit of unrest, but ultimately the opposition party accepted the results and the transition has been peaceful as a whole.  Pray that Madagascar’s President would put the interest of the people above his own and that he would be guided towards advancing God’s Kingdom here.

2) Pray for our upcoming travel as we take a time of sabbatical for much of this year.  Pray that our travel arrangements would all be worked out smoothly and that we would arrive at each destination safely.  Praise God for all the details he’s providentially worked out in a short time already!  Also pray especially that whatever God has planned for us during this time will be accomplished, that nothing (including ourselves) could hinder it, and that we will be refreshed and restrengthened in God and with other members of his body, that we will be renewed to return to Ambilobe later this year and continue the ministry that God is doing to reach the Antakarana in this area!

3) Please pray for Narindra as she prepares to attend one of YWAM’s School of Frontier Missions.  Narindra has felt called by God to prepare for international missions work to unreached peoples, and she feels God directing her to more training and education in that regard.  The School of Frontier Missions is only currently available outside of Madagascar and that could present a big financial and logistical challenge for Narindra.  Pray that Narindra would have all her financial needs met to follow God in the way he’s called her, and that she would have wisdom in choosing when and where to go to do this, and how to make her preparations.
