It is hard to believe that we have already been in Madagascar for more than six months. In many ways, it seems as if we just arrived. In others, it feels as if we have been here for years. God has been so good to us as we have transitioned into a new life and new country.
Since our last prayer letter, we have found ourselves mostly immersed in learning the Malagasy language. This has become our main ambition now and, in some ways, is what we consider to be the end of the beginning. It is our goal and prayer to start church planting when we have a firm enough grip on the language. As always, we appreciate your prayers as we continue learning Malagasy.
The Lord has given us opportunities to be involved in various ministries over the last two months. Dan was able to preach again in French and has continued his Bible study with a Jehovah’s Witness man. And, along with a veteran missionary, we have been involved in an ESL outreach program. It is always our heart and prayer to share the Gospel with those who so desperately need it.
Many people often ask about the girls and how they have adjusted to their new life. Having started school in September, a new adventure awaited them as they found themselves once again in a new school in a new culture. Having already learned French, the transition was smooth and much easier than before. We are happy to say that they have thoroughly enjoyed their new school, new teachers, and new friends.
Now, we would like to take the second half of our update to let them tell you about their lives in Madagascar.
