There is a project called “Mama VaoVao”, which is encouraging Sakalava women in the village to use their skills- hand stitching, sewing sacks, bags, pillows, and hand towels. They have just celebrated their one year anniversary. Many women gave their testimonies at the celebration. One said, “My life has changed, I am now able to care for my household with the money I get. I was just able to buy a table. And I have come to know Jesus!” A little thing can do a great thing in peoples’ lives! Pray for “Mama VaoVao” project to achieve great things in these Sakalava women’s lives, helping them to know Jesus as their Savior.
FARMING IN GOD’S WAY AS A TOOL TO REACH BARA PEOPLE
On the 30th of September we will have the “I Encounter of Farming in God’s Way: Remembering God’s mission to all people and Farming in God’s Way as a strategy to increasing crop production and Reaching Bara People.”
We spect 35 Evangelist from Lutheran Church/Synodon of Betroka. They are coming from the villages where Bara People live. We hope that God continue to break their hearts about missions and teaching about His Love for all the Ethnicity.
May God challenge them to continue preaching, loving Bara people and living lives worthy of the Gospel, without syncretism.
May God give them grace to use the new Farming Methods overcoming their own “planting culture” and apply Farming in God’s Way and its content as a toll to evangelize Bara People.
