LHM and the University Veterinary Department cooperation

As every year, the veterinary students hold an all night prayer meeting on August 24 2012. It was organized with LMH staff who led the devotion. Currently there is a wrong idea going around here in Madagascar saying that the end of the world will be in 2012, 3 pastors did a teaching to explain whether this line of thought is wrong or right according to the bible. Anther theme of debate was on “Christian music.
As part of the night program, LHM staff made a presentation about BCC and Christian literature, tracts and brochures available at LHM. The department choir also participate trough singing during that night. 280 students were present, some are from other faculties.
As a positive result of this event, 2 students registered for BCC and 2 others offered to participate at the month of September radio program. Given the difficult economic and political situation the country is in, prayer meeting of this kind is precious.
