Pastor Guillaume, a Malagasy pastor, based in Mahajanga in North West Madagascar, has seen God bless his ministry amongst the Sakalava people recently. Pastor Guillaume planted six churches amongst Sakalava people in and around Mahajanga a few years ago but none of the churches were really growing. However from September to November 2016 Pastor Guillaume was able to visit the churches and using a mixture of the Jesus video in the Sakalava dialect and a new T4T curriculum he has seen a total of about 70 new believers coming to faith. The local churches are continuing to disciple the new believers using the T4T short term discipleship programme.
Because of the rainy season Pastor Guillaume won’t be able to visit any of these places (many of which are in the bush) until about May this year. Pray for the new Sakalava believers that they would grow in their new faith and share it with others. Pray also that the churches would start to plant new churches.
