Tana City Church
On October 21st, Peter Howard-Browne arrived back in Madagascar for the first time in two years. He was accompanied for the five-day visit by Jan-Louis van den Berg and Patrick Neumann from their home church New Generation, in Somerset West, South Africa. It was a much-anticipated visit, Pete's first since he suffered a massive stroke just two years ago. The stroke was so severe that the doctors said he would never walk or talk again, but that did not account for Pete’s indomitable spirit, or God’s role in his life.
We are hugely encouraged by Pete's love for Madagascar. He has visited the island since the 1990s and has returned over 50 times to strengthen churches here. Pete is the man who sent Gavin and Rhoda Jordan to plant Vision Valley Church (now Tana City Church) in 1999 and he has also worked with many local churches and their leaders over the years – teaching, exhorting, encouraging, discipling and befriending. In every way, we thank God for the massive impact Pete's ministry has had on our lives. AND Jesus is still bringing the Father glory through this man's life!
A few of Pete's messages preached in TCC over the years:
Peace with God
You are your city's hope for success
Transforming culture through transforming Christians
