Recently, a preliminary partnership was struck with the Evangelical Baptist Church of Madagascar to develop a church planting strategy for the Antandroy migrant workers around the sugar cane plantation near Mahabo. This will start with a survey in July to see if there is indeed a need and an openness to have a team of learners living in this area. The EBC has a small church plant in the town of Mahabo, which would serve as a base for ministry to the Antandroy workers.
