Yesterday I got back from staff conference. Frik Van Rensburg, the CEF regional director for the South Africa/Indian Ocean region (which includes Madagascar) was there. It was fun to see him and hear him speak. He showed me pictures and videos from his trip to Madagascar a few months ago. It broke my heart to see videos of the child laborers carrying stacks of wet bricks on their heads, and to see a child running a gambling table for a group of children. They were gambling the little money that they had. Please pray that these precious children will have the opportunity to hear the life changing message of the Gospel.
Today I am driving over to Sequim to speak at their banquet. Please pray that those who come and hear about the ministry will want to get involved, not just with Madagascar, but on the local level.
