Tana City Church
After a bit of a break visiting the Manambolo area and the Bemaraha Plateau, we went on a three-day trip from September 28th to the 31st. These times are both very busy and way too short.
On the first day, en-route to Begara, we flew over the Bevero basin where we noticed shacks being constructed near to the old village of Bevero, which had been devastated by fire. (See more about this story here.) This was an answer to prayers, and we decided to land. To our surprise, the villagers had rebuilt almost all their homes, and said that they had been awaiting our arrival. Although this stop had not been scheduled, we stayed with them for a while and Dr Justin was able to do some consultations. We will schedule more trips to see them later in the year.
From there we carried on to Begara. After we set up our camp, Sedera took the floor to share the good news of the gospel, while Dr Justin, helped by my son-in-law Alexandre, did dental extractions and some consultations. In the evening, we screened the movie “Magdalena" ...
The next morning I had the opportunity to share with the christians of the nascent Church of Begara, while Dr Justin did consultations. Later I left with Sedera for Ankilisoa where we were welcomed warmly by the population. Sedera also got to share the gospel. After a few hours we rejoined Dr Justin and Alexandre, then left for Befosa.
Once there, we kept to the same programme as in the village of Begara. We also watched the testimony of a wizard who had converted. The Head and the villagers were really touched …
Every trip is unique and life changing. We look forward to many more opportunities to minister to these communities.
