A MINISTRY OF AFRICA INLAND MISSION INTERNATIONAL
AIM GLOBAL

Thirst for Truth

Please remember the Karana (Gujarati) of Madagascar. Friday was the end of Ramadan. Please continue to ask that God will place a thirst in their hearts for Truth and the God who is able to truly forgive their sins. Pray for the AK and HJ families.

People of Peace

The Gujarati are called “Karana” by the Malagasy people. It has been difficult for the Malagasy to gain entrance into their communities, finding little common ground. Please pray for a pre-Venture trip being proposed with business professionals from South Africa, going to Madagascar in September. Pray for People of Peace among the business community and other marketplace sectors, and the softening of hearts among the Karana of Madagascar. Pray for an open door for fruitful ministry.

Love your neighbor

Pray that the people who attended the “Love Your Neighbor” seminar in Tana, will be motivated to begin building relationships with the Indian population so that they can share the good news with them. This is difficult as there is very little interaction between the Malagasy and the Indians. About the only meeting place is in the shops the Indians own. Pray that churches and believers in Madagascar will use this opportunity to reach out to their Gujarati neighbors.

Transformed to Serve the Gospel

A family has come to Christ through the witness of missionaries in their area. They have invited unsaved family members and friends to attend a Christian outreach concert on Saturday night, where they hope those people will hear the gospel. Pray for encouragement as they share Christ with the people they love.

Update on The Gujarati of Madagascar

Anna Jarmy AIM missionary in the capital writes”Please pray for the discernment needed as we seek to reach the Gujarati population. we also need to have updated info regarding this UPG” pray for these two requests, also for Anna as she mobilizes and supports local Malagasy missionaries who may be willing to reach out to the Gujarati, in the future.

Ramadan Day 20

There are many Indo-Pakistani Mu$lim communities scattered around Africa. Ask the Lord of the Harvest to send laborers into this harvest field. “It is the Spirit who gives life, the flesh profits nothing. The words that I (Jesus) speak to you are spirit and they are life.” (John 6:63) Pray this Ramadan many Mu$lims would realize the flesh profits nothing and would hear Jesus’ words of life.

Pray for the Gujarati to be open to the gospel

Ramadan Day 4
The Gujarati of Madagascar (called Karana) have been in Madagascar for over 100 years and control much of the economy through their businesses. Despite having been in Madagascar so long and often being fluent in French and Malagasy, the Gujarati live very separately from most Malagasy. They retain much of their original culture including language, food and religion. Praise God the Lord has given a Malagasy pastor a burden to reach the Gujarati of Madagascar. Ask the Lord to give him wisdom as he investigates the best way to reach them. Pray the Lord would open Gujarati hearts to the gospel.

Update on The Gujarati of Madagascar

A Malagasy pastor with the Baptist church, Nirina, is embarking on a country-wide survey of the Indo-Pakistani communities. He hopes to begin later this year and then use his information to lead a focused church planting effort across the island. Pray for Nirina as he makes his final plans for this first phase of ministry.
