Madagascar Prayer Request – Travel
These prayer requests have been scheduled to publish while we’re away. For updates, check out the Facebook page of the missionaries we’ll be working along side (Snyders in Mada) or our church’s Facebook page (Berea Baptist Church). Hopefully both will have a few updates throughout our trip:)
We’re just a little bit away from our first flight! These first couple of days, we’ll be traveling via plane, so please pray that everything goes smoothly and that all of our flights connect like they’re scheduled too.
Once we head into the bush (most likely during the middle portion of our 14 day trip) we’ll be in a truck. Pray that it runs well and that we’re all able to handle the bumpy ride and rough “roads”.
We’re going to Madagascar!
This May, Gary and I will join four other members of our church in sharing the joy of our Savior to the other side of the world!
Our church has partnered with a missionary family in Madagascar and through them, we’re focusing on reaching the Antandroy, a people group with little or no access to the Gospel. On this trip, we’ll share the creation to Christ story to the Antandroy people in the village of Bekily. We pray that through these stories, they will come to know and accept the redemption that our Savior has offered us from this weary world. As they believe and understand, we’ll accompany them to take the Good News to their neighboring villages! The ultimate goal of our partnership over the next few years is to build a body of believers through discipleship and eventually form churches in their community!
Will you pray for us, please? We’ll be preparing in the coming days and are also raising support along the way. We’d love for you to consider supporting us financially. The cost is substantial but we trust God will provide a way for us to go! We look forward to giving you another update when we return.

Lastly, here’s a video that gives a small glimpse into the trip that lies ahead of us and ways you can be praying for the Antandroy people.
