Joy in Madagascar!
“We had another container with booklets, 40-foot this time. It came with more than two million booklets from World Missionary Press, everything paid for, up to the storage rooms. What a blessing, dear friends! We are so blessed with our partnership with WMP. God is so good to us, and we do know that He loves the lost in Madagascar. We printed a special tract for the festive season, with stress on a salvation message and that a Saviour was born for us, not so much [focused] on Christmas but on Christ. We praise the Lord that we visited more than 161,000 homes in six cities in three provinces during December. All this was done before Christmas Day. What a joy, dear friends! God is so good to us. So many people responded positively to the gospel message. I think I can say, as we look at reports from our distributors, this was the best-ever distribution project we’ve had. Of the 161,000 + people who received the gospel message, 12,329 responded positively to the way of salvation message. In general, we use 1+1 of WMP booklets and an additional tract printed for the season, depending on the time of the year. Our next project will be Passover, and it will take place halfway down on our west coast—a large city and surrounding villages. We plan to visit 80,000 homes.” Dries and Valerie D., Madagascar
“It's me again, coming to you live from Lorain County Correctional Institute. Well, anywho [sic], I have been moved. I was not able to bring my Bible studies and booklets with me seeing as there was but one set that I left for the county jail. Can you please send me two sets of the literature this time around, if possible. Thank you for your time and your ministry. Oh, and by the way, the men were so grateful for those booklets and Bible studies. It was like Christmas. They almost argued over them, then worked out a sharing system. 'Blessed is the peacemaker for he shall be called a child of God.' Amen. Let's see if I can do this again and get even more people excited about the living God! Last trip, the Lord gave me about 50 people to influence in Christ. Now He has given me double that. Let's see what He does here. May God be with you all at WMP and may our Father continue uniting the many ministries of Christ. I pray to hear from you soon.” ~Aaron M.
