Weekend Visitors

The Washers visited us this weekend for a quick trip away from their language study. They are living in the same house in Antsirabe we lived in during language study.

Vohitrarivo – Rained Out

Tim visited Vohitrarivo last week and shared the gospel with some of the people there. They were amazed that salvation is a free gift and that we would not charge them for bringing this message. They learned that the catechist in this area has told them that if they do not pay their tithe then […]
