We hope you each had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Ours did not go quite as planned, since we had to cut our trip to Tulear short, but we serve a gracious & loving God who takes care of us no matter what our plans might be!!
Madabout Stories - I encourage you to take a few minutes to go and check it out. It's full of info on our team, the SW Mada people groups, prayer requests, ministry updates, & the Adopt A Village info. The latter is what I'd like to tell you more about today.
As most of you know we had our SW Mada prayer retreat this past weekend (blog updates are coming soon with more info on our trip). One thing we talked about was how incredibly God was moving among some of the villages of the Mahafaly (our people group). A huge reason behind this is because of all the prayer coverage that has happened over the past 2-3 years. Our supervisiors, the Waller family (check out their blog here), saw what a big part prayer played in reaching the Mahafaly and designed the Adopt A Village prayer ministry.
here you can read all about it and sign up to adopt a village yourself! There are currently 13 Mahafaly villages to adopt and we encourage you to read a little on each of them and see where the Lord directs you. Our hope is that your Sunday School class, Bible Study group, GAs/RAs/Awanas, congregation, homeschool group, etc. will adopt one! The length of time to adopt is up to you. Once you have adopted a group to pray for you will be able to recieve updates/pictures/prayer requests as the SW team travels out to these villages. Obviously some villages have more info than others right now due to where the villages are located. Prayer is the greatest gift you can give to our team and we each value it SO much! If you have any questions feel free to send us an email, comment on this blog, or email us through the MadaboutStories website. We look forward to seeing which village your group chooses to adopt!
