Children of God

Our children have become some of the regular village kids. They squat nearby as they watch a man build his canoe. They gather in the crowded cooking hut with all the other village kids to eat a plate of rice and sour mango salad…

Darkness

This is the heaviness we face constantly these days, the utter darkness that seems to surround us on all sides. This is how things are made right in their world: figure out what the ancestors want and do it, or else pay the price – it could cost you your life…

Discovering God

Here I am with my neighbors, starting back at the Beginning, with a story I’ve heard a thousand times since my childhood. I didn’t think I would discover anything new, yet I’ve become a learner right along with our friends and neighbors…

People of Prayer

that’s what begins to happen when we pray. We put our desires and agendas to the side so that we can know him more intimately: his desires and his heart for the world around us. And it’s then, in communion with him, that we are transformed and made new…

New Life

And so begins our bold ministry to the Antakarana. Whether working in the rice fields, sitting on our porches or fishing, we will speak of the God of creation and boast of him in all that we do, lifting up prayers and thanks to him as our friends watch and see that he is a part of every aspect of our lives.

We're enjoying a short trip to St Louis this weekend, visiting some of Lora's family and some friends. We're also looking forward to being with DeSoto Community Church of God tomorrow morning! We'll be sharing a bit during the morning service and enjoying a nice lunch with the church afterwards, so if you're in the area, you should come out! ... See MoreSee Less

Happy to be heading back to the US late tonight!  (Though I wont arrive there until about 48 hours after I leave here - an even longer trip than on my way here!)  It was a good and successful quick trip here to Madagascar, and now everythings set for us to return here, but its definitely no fun to travel without Lora.  Big thanks though to Victor for all of his constant help and also to Pastor Christophers family for hosting us with very warm hospitality!  Please pray for my safe return travel and for our last month in the US after that.

A couple pictures taken today of the northern part of Tana, the capital city. One thing Ive always been impressed by regarding Tana is how its still surrounded by and interspersed with rice fields. Even in the largest and by far the most developed city in the country (and its at least 10x larger than the next largest), its still evident that simple agriculture is the basis for their way of life.Image attachment
